Game 176 | August 28, 1969 | Jim Carter, Phil Hagen
The 1969 season was a great year for legendary athletes at the University of Minnesota. Jim Carter, a high school star at South St. Paul, was an outstanding hockey player and devastating running back for the Gophers football team. Taken in the third round of the 1970 FL draft, Carter went on to star for eight years at linebacker for the Green Bay Packers. Hagen, a Wisconsin native, shared quarterback duties during his Gopher career with Curtis Wilson, Ray Stephens and Walter Bowser, and one of his favorite receivers was future Dunker Doug Kingsriter.
