College football has changed a great deal since the 1960s, and Michael Oriard has seen most of those changes firsthand.
In the late 1960s, Oriard walked onto the football team at University of Notre Dame. Eventually, he became starting center, was elected co-captain by his teammates and was named a second-team All-American. After college, he played briefly in the National Football League for the Kansas City Chiefs.
