“At the time in 90s, a lot of that wide-open passing offense wasn’t in vogue. But we threw it a lot,” said Spence, a vice principal at Havre de Grace who played center for Brooks. “We had a great quarterback, Billy Jackson, who ended up going and playing at Frostburg and become a coach himself, and we had great wide receivers, and we threw the ball all over the place, which was a little bit unusual for the time period. He would create plays during the game if he saw something on the field. It was actually a lot of fun to play for someone who was so creative right on the spot.”
