Way back then, the football players ate in the MU cafeteria. They would ignore the line stretching out the door and would barge in at the serving counters. Not Culp. He would get in the student line with the rest of us. The players would save a seat for him at their tables.

My only brief conversation with Culp:

I met 2 high school friends after their ASU wrestling practice. They told me to open their lockers while they showered. They knew that I had a knack at opening Master combination locks without knowing the combination numbers. It only took a minute, then Culp approached me.

“That’s pretty neat. Try this one.” A couple of twists and the lock dropped open. “Don’t ever do that again, Culp warned. “That’s my locker.”

I suddenly felt small and fragile.
