O. Max Gardner…A Two University Star?

Did you know: O. Max Gardner, former North Carolina governor, captained both the NC State and UNC football teams during his time in higher education? Gardner played football as an undergrad at State; he continued his athletic pursuits while attending law school at UNC. He is still the only person ever to head both teams; I imagine it’ll stay that way, unless TJ Yates develops a taste for Raleigh nightlife.
