Video: Arnold Palmer leads Wake onto gridiron on a motorcycle
They don't call him 'The King' for nothing.
Arnold Palmer reminded us why he's the coolest 84-year-old around when he lead Wake Forest onto the gridiron to faceoff against Maryland Saturday while riding a motorcycle driven by the Demon Deacon mascot.
Palmer played golf in Winston-Salem from 1948 to 1950, winning individual titles in '49 and '50, before turning pro after his victory at the 1954 U.S. Amateur. He has remained active in university affairs, helping to redesign to the school's golf facility that now bears his name and houses a statue of his likeness.
