    Oriard Becomes an Outcast

    Michael Oriard has some wonderful tales of football. Many rank with "Friday Night Lights" about a single determination and reaching for the brass ring His return to his home and watching his old elemetary school practice on the "res" as it was called (the "res" being a resevoir) an noticing the abuse of the coach supports this theme. Football is an entirely different game from most other sports--a single game each week, leaarnig your own plays, studying oppositions. Training and conditioning are fine, but real palyers forget about all that on game day and there is only one goal: knock the other guy down, smash-mouth football uncontrolled rage. But Oriard doesn't only discuss football but his neighborhood and his environment through life. Always the "outsider" is his term. My god! OUTSIDER? Not for someone who grew up at Sacred Heart, not for someone who went to Gonzaga Prep, not for someone who attended Notre Dame, or as one girl asked him "does ND stand for North Dakota?" and definitely NOT the son of Hugh Oriard. Mike was a hero to many Sacred Heart Knights who followed him. Inside the parish life was not much different. Mike never tells who was on the School Council or the parish board--or did Mike distance himself that much from his Father? the answer is there newver was an out crowd at Sacred Heart and the Oriards were our leaders. Opportunity knocked, Mike opened the door a crack and didn't like what he saw, and yet became a Kansas City Chief. How far outside is THAT? His own negative views sour a man who is by all rights a champion.
