It's Kay McFarland Day for the Rocky Mountain Showdown

#86 multi-sport athlete.

One of the earliest basketball-to-football guys, CSU’s McFarland first played hoops for coach Jim Williams before going out for football for coach Mike Lude. McFarland also found time to run track in the spring, the sport in which he was Colorado’s state long jump champion for the Englewood High School Pirates. When his CSU career was over, he had lettered SEVEN times: three each in basketball and track and once in football.

So which sport did he play after college? Football, of course! McFarland played six seasons as a wide receiver for the San Francisco 49ers, totaling 45 catches for 682 yards and four touchdowns. Veering off on a trivial path, one of his fellow receivers on the 49ers was Bernie Casey, who went on to an acting career, playing U.N. Jefferson in the “Revenge of the Nerds” movies and also appearing in “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure.”

Big assist to 60s Rammie for this selection.

On deck: One of the Broncos’ biggest mistakes.
