RE: Any oldtimers remember the MVP Games? Dave Wottle Versus Jim Hershberger
Local kids were picked to essentially carry the athletes bags and assist them throughout the competition. I was one of those kids. A buddy got paired with John Riggins from the Redskins, another friend got Wichita State All American Cliff Livingston... I didn't know anything about Wottle but he was friendly and it was a cool experience. I remember Hershberger falling to the street in front of me (crashed bike or slipped on run... don't recall.) He let loose with an expletive and my eyes went wide. As a kid I think we were just wanting to see the "big names" like Riggins. Hershberger simply seemed like he cared too much. Wish I'd appreciated who Wottle was.
