I remember Derrick Abell well. He was really physical for a cornerback. It seemed like he made every tackle in that game against Arkansas State in the first playoff game of 84 until Mark Fellows nearly killed their QB.

love to see this

DA was a first class individual and teammate, no surprise he's made Chief.

I seem to remember a few years back he had a son that we were recruiting?

side note: what I remember about DA time in Rocky's weight room, he spent 80% of it working on his guns for show. I asked him why - he said since he's undersized, he wants guns out to have some kind of intimidation factor. helluva player and person
