No Mere Mortal
Ken Oxendine - The very first No Mere Mortal.
Cornell Brown - An easy choice at the time.
Bob Shapiro - The first honorary member. He got O.J. off; he deserved it.
Waverly Jackson* – A moment of weakness on our part. His status was revoked, and his name will always carry an asterisk like Maris’ 61 homers.
Corey Moore - Needs no explanation.
Michael Vick** - Used to also need no explanation. His name will always carry two asterisks due to conduct unbecoming of a NMM. See art. 4, sec. 11, cl. 2.
Andre Davis - Three touchdowns (rushing, receiving, and punt returning) on three straight touches. Enough said.
Don Strock, Cyrus Lawrence, Bruce Smith, and Lee Suggs - All four granted NMM status by the Veteran’s Committee during the 2003 off-season. Don Strock led the nation in passing in 1972 and is Tech’s career passing leader with 6,009 yards. Cyrus Lawrence held the all-time Tech single-season rushing record (1,403 yards in 1981) for 22 years. Bruce Smith is simply the best defensive lineman to ever play the game at any level. He had 22 sacks in 11 games in 1983 and 71 tackles for loss for minus 504 yards in his career. He was awarded the Outland Trophy in 1984. Lee Suggs holds the NCAA record for most consecutive games scoring a touchdown (27). Not granting him No Mere Mortal status during his active career was a humiliating oversight that rocked the foundation of the entire NMM program.
