As tough and hard-nosed, as he was talented. Dave could keep his concentration in a crowd of defenders, take brutal hits, and hang on to the ball. And he could block! Courageous, with a tremendous "motor." Dave was a similar, but bigger, version of another great former Saint and Niner receiver named Danny Abramowicz. Guys who set an example for all-out effort, and a model for the way the game should be played.
You gave it your all, Dave, and your fans, coaches, and teammates appreciated the efforts.
