Our cover subject this issue is Jerry Mays, defensive end for the AFL-champion Kansas City Chiefs football team. A graduate of Southern Methodist University, Jerry was a scholastic All-American during his college years and is active in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes for which he is in great demand as a speaker.
Standing 6 ft.4 in. and weighing 252 lbs., he proves that being religious is completely compatible with a bruising, body-contact sport like football. An all-around do-it-yourselfer, Jerry remodeled a den of his former home in Dallas, Texas. The den, of course, was decorated with pictures that he framed, making frames being his specialty. He spends many hours at the exacting task of creating neat miter joints for the frames he makes. Source: Workbench Magazine September-October 1967
