Emerson Boozer knew Clarence Clemons. They were college football teammates for two seasons at Maryland State College (now the University of Maryland Eastern Shore), lived in the same dorm, shared a lot of laughs and bumped into each other occasionally after college, like that memorable night in the mid-1970s.I'll never forget what he told me," Boozer recalled Monday. "He said, 'I found me a soul brother that's going to make me a lot of money. Write this name down -- Bruce Springsteen.'"http://sports.espn.go.com/new-york/n...ich&id=6682974In those days, it was very difficult for blacks to make pro teams," said Boozer, who played with Clemons in 1963 and 1964. "Had the AFL been in full swing, he certainly would've made somebody's club. He was a nice specimen. Good speed and a big man. He could move. He was a player, no question about it, but he loved the sax."
