Hoping for a comeback to previous All-League status … three times All-AFL and four times Eastern All-Star … was heading for further All-League honors in ’67 when knee injury put him out at mid-season for the remainder of the year … comeback attempt in ’68 fell short because knee failed to respond fully … going into ’69, “Ike” appears ready for full return to the famed bulling, bashing pass rush style that earned him the nickname of “The Wild Man” … “I’ve never seen anyone get so keyed up before a game,” says teammate Tom Neville … two years ago put hole in Buffalo locker room wall with helmet as he prepared for game … went out that same afternoon and was named AFL Lineman of the Week … often hosts defensive linemates Houston Antwine and Jim Hunt on his fishing boat as a way of “relaxing” between games … carrying on tradition of many Boston College linemen who made it big in the pros.
