Watching P.J. Walker play this season, I am reminded of one Temple quarterback: Henry Burris.
Hank was a great Temple Owl and he remains a great Temple Owl to this day and will go down as one of the greatest quarterbacks in Canadian Football League history.
The one regret I have about Henry’s career at Temple is that Ron Dickerson did not recruit enough Henry Burrises at the other positions so that the Owls would have bowl games and championships under Henry’s watch.
“Henry Burris is an excellent quarterback,” Penn State coach Joe Paterno said. “He has a super arm and is very, very mobile. “
Hopefully, Matt Rhule will learn from this mistake and not waste P.J.’s final three years. Temple needs at least two, hopefully three, winning seasons under P.J.’s watch and that’s the job of the coaches who are hitting the recruiting trail hard now.
Henry talks about Temple at the 8:17 time stamp of the video above.
Unfortunately, I could not find a single YouTube clip of Henry Burris playing football at Temple. If anyone has something, please send it to me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
