beano cook ron powlus

One of the most heavily-touted prospects in the history of high school football, he was an offensive standout at Berwick High School. Powlus was named Parade Magazine prep player of the year and USA Today offensive prep player of the year in 1992. After Powlus signed his letter of intent with Notre Dame that year, ESPN analyst Beano Cook predicted that Powlus would win the Heisman Trophy twice. This was extremely high praise considering that only one player in the history of college football, Archie Griffin, had won the trophy twice.

From ESPN College Scoreboard that aired on November 13, 1993. After #2 Notre Dame Defeated #1 Florida State Beano Cook predicts Notre Dame will win two national championships and Ron Powlus will win two Heisman Trophies in the next four years. Of course this was not to be.

When Beano Cook, the newest member of ABC's college football announcing team, was the Pitt sports information director, he got a call one day from a woman asking for a copy of the Panthers' football roster. "But lady," Beano replied, "there are 120 guys out for the team right now. You really oughtta wait three weeks, till we make the cuts and are down to 75 or 80 kids. Otherwise, it's really a waste of your time."

The woman, however, was adamant. She needed the roster. Pronto. "But why?" Beano asked, dreading the hours it would take to round up the name of every tackling dummy cluttering up the practice field. "Because," she said, matter of factly, "I want to sleep with everybody on the Pitt football team."

Beano gasped. "Well," he said, clearing his throat, "in alphabetical order, starting at guard...Cook, Beano."
