Sad to hear. I remember Bob Fulton's call when Max boomed an 80 some odd yard punt (86 yards I think) against Hooterville Tech in 1978. I couldn't get tickets and had to listen on the radio. RIP.

This was Max....

Quote:
“He had been saved. He was a Jesus person,” Runager said of Max. “He had a passion for helping people.”
Thanks for being a great Gamecock and a great ambassador.

Very sad to hear. Just had a couple of beers with him a couple weeks ago in Rock Hill. He was dealing with a terrible back issue after a fall.

So very nice to me and my kids...and he was going to help my oldest son this summer with his kicking for high school. A really great man and he had such great stories. RIP Max

Here is a pic of Max and my youngest with his Super Bowl 50 football. Truly a great man

It's so nice when those who have achieved certain levels of greatness remain down to earth and gracious. That's a very nice pic for your son to cherish.

I didn't know him but worked with his sister-in-law IIRC in Greenwood back in the late 1980s.

Back then she said she kept pestering him to introduce her to Joe Montana.

Max is the best punter I've seen at Carolina. By what he did at the collegiate & NFL level it'd be hard to argue that he's not the best who ever punted here.

But that was not Max who made that punt against Clemson. That was Jay Feltz in the 1979 game. 82 yards (I think) ball downed on the 1 yard line (I think). We still had to hold our breath as Billy Lott drove them all the way down the field. 13-9 good guys.

I attended the 1979 game. I later bought a bumper sticker referring to that game, which read: "Pussy Whipping '79".

We used to have some of the best (and not PC) bumper stickers after big wins back in the day. Why don't we do them anymore?

The older one gets, the more they realize that, over time, things gradually change, not necessarily for the better.

RIP to a great Gamecock!

I remember playing OW back in the early 80's, they were in our conference. I do not recall a white guy on any of their teams, he must have been the only one to play there. Interesting that he did not attend the private school, Orangeburg Prep I believe?

Very sad to hear the news. I loved watching him punt at Carolina and I followed his whole career in the NFL. I always thought he was right up there with Ray Guy as the best punters during that era. RIP young man.
