FAMOUS QUOTES from Tim Dwight

FAMOUS QUOTES about Tim Dwight

Hayden Fry Hayden Fry  from Iowa vs. Ohio State on 10/26/1996 - Link to source
He's like Superman. He's all heart and he's the greatest competitor I've had in 45 years of coaching. The greatest run was probably the punt return he didn't score on. It was unbelievable - jerking loose, side-stepping people, stiff-arming and jumping over people.

Hayden Fry Hayden Fry  from Iowa vs. Central Michigan on 9/3/1994
Did Tim Dwight play in the game? He was all over the field today.
