On April 30, 1984, the cover of Sports Illustrated featured a photograph of an old black leather football helmet with a large white skull and corssbones crudely painted on the helmet's front center. The title of the cover article was "The Toughest Coach There Ever Was." The article, written by Frank Deford, was an amazing 18 pages in length, and remains one of the longest (if not the longest) article ever to appear in the world-famous magazine. Who was the article about? Not Vince Lombardi, or Bear Bryant, or any other prominent professional or major college coach. The article was about an unknown junior college football coach from Scooba, Mississippi.
