    5 Things You Need To Know About Ed & Lisa McCaffrey

    If you think your Saturdays are stressful, you won’t believe what the McCaffrey family goes through. Lisa had it tough in the 90’s, watching Ed play 13 NFL seasons for the Giants, 49ers and Broncos. But that pales in comparison to their weekends these days. With three sons all playing big-time football, stress is the McCaffrey’s life. It could hit an all-time high this weekend, as Christian McCaffrey’s Stanford Cardinal play in the Pac-12 Championship game against USC.

    Having three sons grow up to be elite football players is no accident. There’s a long line of athletics in this family, and not just on Ed’s side. Both parents have physical prowess dating back generations, and so it’s no surprise their kids love to run. At this pace, the McCaffrey’s could rank as one of the all-time most prolific football families.

    Lisa has been called – The #1 Sports Mom in America.   You also have to thank genetics. Lisa has told reporters, “That’s why Ed and I got together–so we could breed fast white guys.

      Seems both Sime and Moorman played the Lonesome End position for Duke with Tee M. being a couple of years after Sime . Tee’s QB in their ’61 Cotton Bowl victory was Don Altman . I seem to recall that Moorman , like Sime , also played baseball at Duke but have not yet turned up info on that . Moorman did study to become a doctor AND an attorney and Sime became a doctor after his running days were behind him . Bet he enjoys watching those grandsons play , OR his medically trained mind cringes with every hit !

      My searches on Tee and Sime found that in 1961 Tee’s team hosted Navy with Heisman candidate Joe Bellino who had 19″ calves and was one tough running back . Maybe a dozen of us NROTC midshipmen from UNC went over to the game in Durham decked out in our Navy Blues and white dress covers (hats) and cheered for the Academy while sitting alongside the Duke student section . A fun day was had by all .

      The name of Dave Sime likely draws some ???? from many readers . That his daughter might be “adept” at birthing “fast white” guys makes sense to those who know her Dad was one of the world’s two fastest men in the mid-50’s along with Bob Morrow , both white . But Sime also had some football experience at Duke to go along with his track and baseball exploits . He was Duke’s version of Army’s “Lonesome End” , a receiver who normally stood wide out on the line , near the sideline , did not take a conventional stance usually , and cut across the field or went long for the “bomb” . Problem was , the Duke QB , maybe Jerry Barger , didn’t have the arm to get the ball out there to Sime very often . He essentially could outrun the ball , as a 9.3 sec.100 yd. time would explain . As a med student at Duke , Sime watched the celebrated-in-Chapel Hill 50-0 game seated in Wallace Wade Stadium’s end zone . As a 16 yr. old walk-in spectator from Durham High I happened to sit next to Sime in that end zone and regrettably didn’t have the cojones to tell him I knew who he was , admired him , and chat with him . Really neat guy , Dave Sime .

        WC… I thought Tee Moorman was Duke’s Lonesome End, not Sime ??? I suppose both could have played the position over a period of 5-8 years in the late 50 – early 60s. I bet Coach Al Buehler will know… or Leo Hart albeit Leo was 10 years their junior.

      BL, it the annals of “Small Worlds” you columns from left field are amazing. I used to room with Dave Sime in Canada playing for the Halifax baseball team in 1956.
