Poster Wants Your Top 10
A poster wants your help with his project. He will get a vinyl wrap around his green board similar to the Cowboys example in the attached pic. He can fit 10 names around it and wants your take on the most important 10 people in W&M football history (players and coaches).[Image: e102a77a35fb6b34ffa5dfbb48b67815.jpg][Image: b1fbca485635654516b09eaa4e3fc7dc.jpg]

RE: Poster Wants Your Top 10
Jimmye LAycock, Lou Creekmur, Marv Levy, Pinball Clemons, Ralph Sazio, Jack Cloud, Lang Campbell, Jonathan Grimes.

I'd say at this point you'd have to consider Mike Tomlin, as well.

That's nine on my list and the battle for 10th is too difficult for me to pick.

Walter Zable for his overall contributions to the program (maybe he gets his name on the stadium without being in the top 10)

Through the years

Art Matsu
Jack Cloud
Buster Ramsey
Lou Creekmeur
Jonathan Grimes

RE: Poster Wants Your Top 10
I feel confident in selecting individuals from about the mid-1980's forward based on my experience level, but certainly some legendary names from the past stand out as well. So my list is based on their time at W&M and not as much as what they did somewhere else (as a Professional Player or Coach) and as such would be:

Coaches: Jimmye Laycock and Marv Levy

Players: Jon Grimes, Michael Clemons, Lang Campbell, Jack Cloud, Lou Creekmur and three spots for players for the 80+ years that I am not as familiar with.

Zable and Laycock already have their names either on the stadium or on a building attached to it. Wouldn't it be better to recognize 10 other individuals?

It's a scale craft project. Not a full size stadium.

Steve Christie and Mark Kelso are great picks, as well. Man, it's hard to get it down to just 10.

Carl Voyles...coach of the great 1939 through 1942...his four-year winning pct will never be matched
