Pat Summerall: Did he or didn’t he?

When sports broadcaster Pat Summerall died last week in Dallas at age 82, an old legendary Gordon Military legend was brought under scrutiny. There is a long-circulated rumor that George Allen Summerall played football for one season at GMC before returning to Arkansas and going on to the NFL. Summerall was a kicker and his nickname Pat came from the football acronym for point after touchdown. Whether fact or myth, this legend stirred up considerable discussion over the weekend at Alumni Week festivities at Gordon. One argument grew heated and now a sizable wager is involved.
