    Just noticing how small Jim “Earthquake” Hunt, #79 was in this photo, at 5’11” and around 250 lbs. Despite this, he was a terror on defense for all 10 AFL years with Boston, making several AFL All-Star appearances. By the way, this was the rookie year for his partner at DT, #65 Houston Antoine, another All-Star.
