Today John Constantine Unitas, the greatest football player to ever take the field, would have been 80. He was my hero. I loved watching him play.
I was fortunate enough to have seen him play in person here in Houston. I'll never forget that day in October of 1970 when his TD pass to Roy Jefferson won the game against the Oilers. Johnny U. threw the pass and turned to jog off the field. He knew how the play would end.
