  • All-Florida halfback for three of his college years
  • “Big, powerful and last, he ran with a high knee action that often crippled would-be tacklers,” said his coach, Jack MacDowell. “Ollie was popular with his teammates, modest and unassuming, but a man to be learned by the opposition. He had only one speed, and that was full throttle.”
  • Also a Sullivan Scholar and a member of the O.O.O.O. society
