No. 50 and No. 97, where are you?

Published on May 26, 2011 by     Seahawks.Com News (Feed)

Remember the old TV sitcom “Car 54, Where Are You”? Maybe not.

It ran on NBC from 1961-63, and later in syndication from 1987-90 on Nick at Nite. It was about two Bronx cops – Gunther Toody (played by Joe E. Ross) and Francis Muldoon (Fred Gwynne, pre-Munsters) – who spent most of the show in their patrol car.

Well, we’ve spent the past few months looking for two of the players the readers of Seahawks.com voted to the 35th Anniversary team: No. 50, Fredd Young; and No. 97, Rufus Porter.

You obviously remember them, and for good reason. All they did between them is go to six Pro Bowls, lead the team in tackles three times and sacks once and generate 4,670 votes for the reader-selected team. Porter made it as an outside linebacker and the special teams player. Young was voted an inside linebacker and finished second to Porter in the special teams voting.

But we can’t find them. Despite repeated calls to a small directory of numbers. We reached disconnected numbers. Numbers that no longer are in service. Numbers that simply rang and rang, and then rang some more. Numbers where nothing happened after they were dialed.

We asked former teammates if they had contact numbers for them. We tried the sports information department at Louisiana Tech, where Porter’s son is a linebacker. We tried the Indianapolis Colts, the team Young played for after leaving the Seahawks. We contacted their alma maters – Southern University for Porter and New Mexico State for Young.

But still no connection. So, if you know the whereabouts of two of the best players in franchise history, let us know.

Regardless, enjoy the story of these two very-special players – the 16th in a series of articles featuring the players you voted to the 35th Anniversary team.
