Maynard was typical of a lot of scrappy skinny boys from West Texas. But he was blazing fast for that day and time, and of course, was Namath's deep threat running those go and post patterns. I saw him in person way back in 1972, when he was the guest speaker at the Big Spring High School Football Banquet. Being from just down the road on I-20 from Colorado City, he was like a local celebrity. He signed my banquet program, and it became the very first autograph I have of several NFL Hall of Fame players.
