"We started having legendary one-on-one battles at practice. Our one-on-one practices became so intense ... we were going so hard that they took our helmets from us. They took my helmet and they took Deuce's helmet. Because if he won one, I would run right back up and I would call him back up. And then if I won, he'd call me back up. We probably would have gone about five or six times in a row before we had let anybody else go. Finally, coach Stallings was like 'take their helmets. Let somebody go, because these two here, they will go all day.' Even coach (Bill) Oliver, he came over one day and took my helmet and said 'this is not going to go on today. You two are going to hurt each other. We need y'all out there.'"
