Emmitt Thomas has come a long way from Bishop College

Randy Covitz of the Kansas City Star writes about former Kansas City Chief and now Hall of Famer Emmitt Thomas and his humble beginnings... "He was a raw rookie from an obscure, historically black college that no longer exists. He was undrafted, unheralded and unpretentious. So when Emmitt Thomas filled out a standard questionnaire for the Kansas City Chiefs, who brought him into camp in 1966 with about 125 other players, he found one way to grab the club’s attention.
QUESTION: What single experience stands out as your greatest in football? ANSWER: College: Checking Otis Taylor in man-to-man coverage."
