    Eddie’s face can also be seen on boxes of Just For Men hair care products. Eddie was a cool guy in college, I hope the acting catches on for him.

    His catch against Dook iiiin….1991 (I think) was easily the single greatest catch I’ve ever seen in my life.

    Terrible shame that he kept blowing out his knee (three times in three years, I believe). He could have been a quality NFL player.

    Agreed on the amazingness of the catch at Duke.

    Didn’t he also catch a game-winning TD pass as time expired at Texas Tech? If I remember correctly, Bam Morris had a costly fumble for them as they tried to run out the clock.

    Cool. I had no idea where he’d gone post injury-plagued NFL career. As an aside, I wouldn’t mind being in a Beyonce video.

    I wouldn’t mind just getting into Beyonce.
