I was a stuent at North Hi and our family followed ASU (ASC then) and went to some of the home games in Tempe. Phoenix Union was our big HS rival so I knew Montgomery Stadium. We had driven down to Tucson to see us beat the Kats handily. We went to the Salad Bowl game, and the one the yr before. Miami was too much for us in the first half. They jumped out to a 21 pt lead and we could never catch up. 2nd half was more even but we were always playing from behind. Woody Hayes said they were going to make a wheezer out of Whizzer but White scored twice and played a good game against a very tough D. You could see blood spots on White's jersey but he hung in there.

Was a great yr for the Devils and they finished 9-2. First time in many yrs that they had come close to winning that many games. Gave them a taste of what could be accomplished if they could get a good coach. They were still 5 yrs away from the Dan Devine hire.
