I do not know if there is any video from our olden days. In 68 we played in the Astro Bluebonnet Bowl but freshmen were not eligible to play varsity then so he was not in that one. We had no other bowl games during our time there. There was not the glut of bowl games then like there is today.

Emanuel Tolbert was also a pretty fair receiver back in the Mike Ford/Clement Fox days...

Still have to go with Hammond, though. He made being a young SMU fan smile on Saturday afternoons...

We never got to see Hammond's potential as a wide receiver. Freshmen were ineligible when he was on campus, then he moved to running back his junior year and quarterback as a senior. If there's a category for Most Versatile he wins hands down. One of the all time great Mustangs.

Jerry Levias still gets my pick for Greatest Wide Receiver.

Aside from his All American honors and NFL career, he was the Jackie Robinson of the Southwest Conference. He performed under pressure that the other great receivers cited in this thread never faced. I would like to see his statue at Ford.

Amen!

I always imagined a statue of Jerry, with Hayden's arm on his shou!der, saying something to the effect, "Just show them who you are!" .

I'd put Courtland Sutton up against any receiver that's ever played here. Two best hearts I ever saw were Mick Rossley and James Proche. And Beasley. Now's the golden age.
