Anyone have any cool stories about The HOFer Charlie Timmons? He won us the Cotton Bowl back in the day didn’t he...

My girlfriend was the Assistant Director of Nursing at a long term care facility in Columbia. Charlie "Cotton" Timmons' widow was in her care for some time until her passing. They spoke daily and often about Charlie. I know he scored the only TD in that Cotton Bowl. That's how he got the nickname "Cotton." I also know his nickname before that was "Toughy". I'll get her to share a few more stories with me and post them.


Score was 6-3 I believe over renowed BC Coach Frank Leahy..
