Football was always his favorite sport. He enjoyed baseball until the 1994 strike and after that enjoyed telling people he was boycotting them. In later years he started watching NASCAR because his cousin Hubert Horne was a fan but football was his true love. He made sure all his grandchildren knew of his playing days and became Nole fans at an early age.
