Rare photos of Heisman Trophy winnner Pat Sullivan in all of his Pat Sullivan-ness

Beano Cook did an interview with Pat Sullivan back in the early 90s for an episode some Heisman history series called “Heisman Heroes.” (Beano had fond memories of the Super Sully campaign.) I found a tape of it. But it’s not that great a copy. The picture’s constantly jumping and stuff. But it does include some great rare photos Pat the Pee-Wee League phenom, Pat the Auburn icon, Pat the Family Man it’d be a shame not to share.

So instead of posting a video you’d stop watching pretty quick, we’re posting some screen caps I managed to snag from the steady parts.

Here’s Sully with houndstooth hat aficionado Shug Jordan in probably 1969 or 1970.

Here are some candids of the Sullivans at the 1971 Heisman Trophy banquet. A close friend wrote to say that they hadn’t even seen them, so you know they’re rare…
