Since you're familiar with the New York Giants, Rich, I should mention that another old Giant was an engineer. Reserve quarterback Randy Dean from the late 1970s, was an industrial engineer from Northwestern.

Although I was aware of Charlie Johnson's military service, I was not aware that he concurrently played football and flew to his games on Weekends. Great information, Tool_Maker. Thanks.
