    I was in Columbia Mo. during this time…and kind of had a crush on Nolan Cromwell….and then he was a Packer coach and then he was with Seattle. Did you go to college in Kansas?

    • Corky Trewin says:

      Nolan and I were at KU at the same time and became friends. We were reacquainted when he came to the Seahawks

  2. Donna Boucher says:

    p.s. I liked college football in those days….
    Now, I’m much more interested in a certain pro team.

    Great shot of Nolan. What a player. Would you ever sell any of your photos to an individual? For private use (display in home)? Do you have any other KU football photos from this era? Thank you.


    • Corky Trewin says:

      Matt – thanks for the comment. I am going through all 43 years sports photos and I am sure I will come across many more images from Nolan’s era at KU, some of which will continue to appear in the daily revue images. Let’s get together to see how you and I can review images you would be interested in. Rock Chalk!!

      • Matt Moore says:

        Its been awhile but I wanted to follow up and see if you’ve had a chance to archive more KU football photos from 1975-78.

      • Corky Trewin says:

        Not just yet, Matt, but those are on the to-do list.

    Do you have any shots of Laverne Smith playing at KU?
