Default Woolfolk: The next generation

Quote:
ANN ARBOR -- A proud father answered the phone Monday morning with a question: "What number did they give him?"

Harold "Butch" Woolfolk wanted to know, and moments later, his son was calling on the other line with the answer.

Troy Woolfolk, whose father was an All-America running back at Michigan more than a quarter-century ago, stepped out onto the practice field Monday wearing a new jersey -- No. 29 -- with an old, familiar name embroidered on the back. And just like that, the 6-foot-1, 180-pound freshman cornerback, who starred at Fort Bend Dulles High in Texas, is officially a Wolverines legacy.

"It's a big day, no doubt," said the elder Woolfolk, 47, who works for Forward Edge, Inc., a Houston-based group that helps companies implement substance-abuse programs. "I'm proud of him, and excited for him. But the biggest thing for me is, I know he's at a place where I don't have to worry about him."

That's a relief, as well as a bit of a surprise. The father figured his son might play for the University of Texas. His mother, Regina, director of community relations for the Houston Texans, quietly hoped it'd be Texas A&M. Troy thought he'd end up at Nebraska.

Ohio State didn't make the short list, but that's about the only sign of any maize-and-blue meddling. ("They sent a letter, but we burned it," Butch jokes.) In fact, while Woolfolk's elder son, Jerell, now a senior at Sam Houston State, paid a childhood visit to Ann Arbor with his dad, Troy never did.

"He has been real hands-off with everything," said Troy, who "fell in love" with the Wolverines' coaching staff when he visited U-M's evaluation camp last summer and committed soon after. "My dad wanted it to be my decision. He made his own legacy at Michigan, and he wanted me to make my own footsteps."

They'll be quick ones, though, just like his dad's. Troy Woolfolk runs a 10.6-second 100-meter dash. Butch still holds the school record at Michigan in the 200 (20.59).

I didn't know much about Butch woolfolk, All I can remember as a kid looking at the project lineup of the Oilers in the mid -80's (1985? maybe) in a preview guide in a book and was excited for football season the start

I remember the Muchchak,Steinkular,Mathews (can't remember the other two) but If memory serves me, Moon was just starting at Qb, along with Drew hill on one side, and Earnest Givens on the other, along with Moriarty and Butch Woolfolk in the back field..

If I got that project lineup from 23 years ago I will be amazed.

I remember him from the 1985 season opening game against the Dolphins. It was the first time in years the Oilers had won a opening game. Moon hit him for a bomb that game. Found this at houstonprofootball.com

Quote:
It looked like another long season when the 1985 Oilers fell behind defending AFC Champ Miami in the season opener. Houston trailed at home, 13-0. But then Moon hit halfback Butch Woolfolk in stride on the post route for an 80-yard score. Later, trailing 23-19 late in the fourth quarter, Warren connected with Drew Hill for a 48-yard catch-and-run. Then he converted on two fourth-down passes to keep the drive alive, culminating in a 26-23 upset victory.
I was at that game with my brother. One of my favorite Oiler memories.

I will follow his son's career at Michigan.
