Burt Reynolds love affair with sports

Got assigned this story over the weekend and wasn’t quite sure where to start. Burt Reynolds spent a lifetime around sports, even though he hadn’t played since a knee injury in his college years at Florida State. He loved FSU football. He loved his former teammates, including our own Lee Corso. And he loved being around competitors. So, I just started making some calls and asking for folks’ favorite stories about Burt. They didn’t disappoint.

And, I must say, the highlight of all this is the Harry Gant footnote.

Enjoy… Burt Reynolds & Sports.
