Fifty Years On, Remembering The Tampa Football Game That Broke Racial Barriers I remember the Tampa college team well. A few years later they had Freddie Solomon at QB and he was unreal. Always had some great players. The QB in this (for Tampa) game was the backup QB at Miami when they won those Super Bowls. I never heard this story before. Fran Curci went up in my mind from this. We called him Fran Cursed when he pitched that fit over the game Reaves broke the yardage record against scUM.
