Fields of golden sunflowers, dense stands of corn, thousands of acres of waving wheat lie beneath the hot summer sun. Fields of dreams, in North Dakota. Straight, lightly traveled rural highways crisscross the endless flat farmland. The country road rolls through one farm town after another, past an occasional country cemetery, where tilted headstones mark the dreams of other times. Hawks cruise lazily over freshly plowed fields awaiting the late hay crop, looking for mice and insects.

For a guy who died in 1994, Eric Heismeyer played some very good football in 1995. On the phone from Fargo, N.D., where he is beginning his senior season as a North Dakota State tight end, Eric sounded fine and fit when we spoke after his first day of training camp. "Hot here in North Dakota today," he reported. "Too hot for football," was my reply. Eric had an answer for that. "Well," he said, "there are worse things in life." We spoke about his heartbeat having stopped, two years ago.
