"I had a local high school football team come to the studio every day for that week," photographer Ralph Morse, now 96 years old, tells Ben Cosgrove, "and we practiced all sorts of scenarios until we had one that worked—the guys in front tossing the ball underhand, the guys in back throwing overhand. We also set up a sheet of plexiglass with a hole cut in it for the camera lens to poke through, so I wouldn't get creamed by 14 footballs coming at me."
