'Tuffy' was also a prep gridiron star
The Dispatch sports dept. should know that "Tuffy" really was a great football player; the 1950 Aberdeen Bulldog team went undefeated ... led by their star running back "Tuffy" Bourland. They scored 292 points in just nine games.
My father, "Shag" Goolsby was the football coach at Aberdeen from 1946 to 1950; my dad always said that he was a successful coach because of "Tuffy" Bourland.
