Saturday stash...

Former Oklahoma State and long-time Detroit Lions running back Barry Sanders did not sign either index card I sent him but did return a signed card he provided care of the NFL Hall of Fame in about 1 month. Sanders won the 1988 Heisman Trophy while starring for the Cowboys in his junior season, a campaign that saw him run for over 200 yards per game. He went on to be selected with the third overall pick following that junior season and was a 10-time Pro Bowl selection. He still holds 10 different Detroit Lions team records.

Also signing were Kentucky defensive stars Jeremy Jarmon and Trevard Lindley, who sent back a signed 4x6 comob photo and a single index card each care of the UK athletic department in about three weeks. As sophomores last fall, the pair combined for over 120 tackles and will lead the way for UK's defensive unit this fall.

Rounding out the day was former Middle Tennessee State defensive star Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who sent back a pair of signed cards and a completed questionnaire care of his current NFL squad, the Arizona Cardinals, in about a month and a half. The former Blue Raider was drafted with the 16th overall pick in this past spring's NFL Draft.
