It’s good to see The Sheridan Press’ Rodeo Edition of Destination Sheridan flying off the shelves to natives, newcomers and visitors. We’re continually stocking and restocking visitor outlets with this magazine, 80 pages in full color with local marketing, rodeo features, photography and much more. It’s a keeper. Its cover was designed by Nicole Scofield and our banner, for the parade and rodeo week, thanks to BigHorn Design, right there on the corner of Main and Grinnell.
Incidentally, our website — www.thesheridanpress.com — celebrates Rodeo Week with a special rodeo background. Check it out.
I see by the paper…..
Sheridan resident Jerry Hill made The New York Times June 28 wearing his familiar Baltimore Colts #45 jersey. He’s in a photo from Super Bowl III, arguably the most famous of the games, pictured with Jim Hudson of the New York Jets. Sadly, the photo is part of Hudson’s obituary. Hudson was 70 and played all of his six NFL seasons with the Jets. He played collegiate ball at the University of Texas. Hudson, 6-2 and 225 and described in the obit as a “tough and rugged player,” was named all-NFL in 1968.
Hudson’s signature moment came right before halftime when he intercepted a pass from Colts quarterback Earl Morrall on a flea-flicker play with running back Tom Matte. The Jets were leading 7-0. Morrall didn’t see wide receiver Jimmy Orr near the end zone, waving, with no defenders nearby. Instead, he threw a pass toward Hill over the middle of the field. Hudson intercepted the ball at the 12-yard line and the rally ended.
Most folks hereabouts know Jerry played nine years with the Colts, played in two Super Bowls; the Colts won Super Bowl V. Hill was inducted in the Wyoming Cowboys Hall of Fame in 1993 and was also named UW’s football player of the 20th century. Hill was featured in a Press story earlier this year, the day before the Super Bowl, in which the Baltimore Ravens prevailed, 34-31 over San Francisco’s ‘49ers.
