We played against him in high school and lucky for me I played offense. He would get the kickoff and go 90 or so just about every time, the same with him receiving punts, he took it to the house on two punts and two kickoffs. Lucky we only scored once or it would have been worse and on punts coach made the punter kick out of bounds. I can remember coach grabbing our best linebacker and db's facemask's and screaming spit in their faces after he had scored several times and demanded them to nail this sob when he gets the ball again. The play was a pitch right and both got a good shot at him, the lb was sidestepped and he got an arm on his leg and this db was going to nail him good, [he was so fired up and mad]. The db said he hit him head on harder than he had ever hit anybody in all his yrs of playing and was a senior and a pretty stout safety. Linnie smashed into him to what sounded for sure at least one broken helmet, it was sooo loud, and trampled over him with ease all the way to about the 8 yd line. I will never forget him running from one end of the field to the other, all night long, by far the best high school rb I have ever seen in my 51yrs on earth!!
Another clip of Linnie.
