Remembering some Steelers: Franco's last TD - Chucktownsteeler - 06-16-2021

Franco's last TD, in 1983. He finished with a good day stat wise: 31 carries for 132 yards. Not bad for the 33-year older. Oddly enough it came on the road in Seattle against what would become his future team the Seahawks. 

After the TD you can see Franco taking his time getting back to his feet. Father time is undefeated. 

I still like those block numbers, they were bad-#ss.

Fun fact, Keith Butler was one of the starting inside linebackers on the field during Franco's td run.
