What's this? Someone knocking the rust off the old Steel Curtain? This whole thing is sort of like a play. There are a whole bunch of punch lines. Maybe some introductions are in order: "Hardy Nickerson meets the Steelers." Act I (also Round 1) It is during a passing drill that Nickerson, our hero, a 223-pound rookie linebacker from the University of California, runs into Preston Gothard, who is the team's 242-pound starting tight end.

Hardy Nickerson will have his own personal cheering section at the Rose Bowl Saturday evening when Cal's football team plays UCLA. Nickerson grew up in Los Angeles and played a big part in Verbum Dei's Southern Section titles in 1981 and '82, so he can expect the backing of family and friends, former coaches and teachers, perhaps even present-day Verbum Dei players. But Cal's junior linebacker is likely to grab the attention of everyone else in the crowd, too.
