As I was searching for info on Long's Peak on the web, I came across the odd fact that the ashes of Doak Walker were scattered on Long's Peak. Walker died on September 28, 1998 from complications from a skiing accident. He was famous for winning the Heisman trophy at SMU in 1948 and being exemplary in his academics and citizenship. He was a 4-time All-Pro with the Detroit Lions and led them to NFL championships in 1952 & 1953. He's the namesake for the Doak Walker Award (see www.doakwalkeraward.com) for college football's best running back.
