Former UW-River Falls running back Jimmy Baier, front left, reacts to a story told by his old Falcon coach Gwyn Christensen as former teammate Tom Carroll, back left, and Baier's family laughs along during halftime ceremonies to retire Baier's No. 33 jersey at the Sept. 5 college football opener against St. John's. Baier, an Elmwood native, earned NAIA First Team All-American honors in 1966 when he led the country in rushing with 1,585 yards, a Falcon record. He still holds UW-RF records for most yards rushing in a game (370), most touchdowns in a season (17), most points in a season (102) and longest run from scrimmage (95 yards), all set in 1966. See Sports, Page B1 to see how the Falcons fared against the Johnnies.
