Here's short article, courtesy of our friend from afar Liam Tweed . . . it was originally in a Muscle Training Illustrated mag, the Dan Lurie publication, May/June '67 issue, and I find it very inspiring as well as grounding me where I want to be.
It's a fact . . . I knew big Dave Draper when he was so average you wouldn't have noticed him if he walked past you alone.
We attended the same high school, in Weehawken, New Jersey. We both trained at the famous Swiss Gymnastic Club where my father was the chief instructor.
