Continued: Mount Union's Kehres keeps gaining

Randall McDaniel, the Vikings' all-time great guard, only showed his prankster side to people inside the team. A favored tact for McDaniel and his fellow offensive linemen was to tape individuals to a goal post. This was a fate suffered by nearly every ball boy to work training camp in Mankato.

One of these lads decided to gain revenge by pouring water over McDaniel's head. He did so from an elevated location, then assured his pals that Randall "wouldn't do anything about it."

Tom West from the Vikings' P.R. department recalled the scene after a practice. "Randall told the water-pouring ball boy to start running," West said. "He let him get about a field-and-a-half away, then took off. The kid couldn't believe it, but Randall ran him down in a hurry."

That was McDaniel's non-advertised asset: speed. In high school, he made the Arizona state finals in the 100-meter dash. That race was won by Vance Johnson, the future Broncos receiving standout.
