Does anyone remember a player on the 60-63 teams by the name of

John Linn. I recently moved into a Country Club for 55+, and after being in the house for about a week, I decided to hang out some of my UVA flags. A couple of days later my doorbell rang. I answered it wearing some UVA clothes. A man and a woman were at the front door, and when I opened the door, the woman looked at my shirt then said to the man (her husband) "I told you so". the man looked at me, pointing to my shirt and said "what year"? Turns out his name is John Linn and he played football in the early '60's. I found his name in some of the old magazines I have, and in the football archives He was recruited out of Syracuse New York on scholarship. Really a nice guy too.
