Nope. Defensive line, which was part of what made the announcement so ludicrous, Noll saying with a straight face that the infection was really painful.

The guy never made it as a contributor, which always puzzled me because I was pretty high on him at the time, glad to have him on the team. He hung around the edges for a few years and then dropped away. He went on to a successful career on Wall Street, and died about 8 years ago.

There you go, Willie Fingernails Fry. I was really high on this guy, coming from ND in the same group as Ross Browner, Al Hunter, etc. But it wasn't meant to be.

A clue might be found in his obituary... "Willie is survived by his father Willie Fry, Sr., his sister Linda Hullum, his nephews Albert, KK, and Earl, all from Memphis, & longtime friend Ken Hicks of New York City."
