I honestly don't know:redface:
Not sure ... Abe Mickal? Huey made him a louisiana senator because of his performance.
Here's the story ... Nighttime at Tiger Stadium
His name was Art Foley.
He was a shifty halfback that was from New Mexico that was a JC stud.
Huey had Red Heard go to NM and get him for the Tigers.
He missed the first game of that season, a 3-0 loss to TCU that he could have probably made a difference in.
Art Foley had some problems after the Spring Hill game and was shortly thereafter diagnosed with a lung ailment.
Doctors sent him home to NM to recoup in the dry humidity.
Huey felt so indebted to Foley that he gave him a brand new sports car to drive home in.
Unfortunately, he never recovered, and after several years Foley died.

Thanks for the info ... I need to get that book.:thumb:
