A battle with stomach cancer prevents Dr. Ed Dyas, former Auburn fullback, linebacker and kicker extraordinaire, from attending this weekend’s Enshrinement Festival at the College Football Hall of Fame in South Bend, Ind.
Nothing prevents us from posting from the TWERchives this photo of Dyas and his glorious leg in their heyday.
War Eagle, Ed, and get well soon.
Here is an article from the Mobile Press Register on Dr. Dyas: http://blog.al.com/tommy-hicks/2010/07/cancer_sidelines_auburn_great.html
He was apparently a great player (way before my time), but I was always impressed with his academics/post football career. I knew of him as an orthopedic surgeon in Mobile growing up and was blown away when I found out he was such a great football player for AU. Hate he was not able to make the trip. War Eagle Dr. Dyas.
