That game was a major draw because of RB Tony Nathan (Woodlawn) and QB Jeff Rutledge (Banks) facing off with undefeated teams. Banks won, but I told a jubilant Banks fan that their most difficult game would be the next week when they had to play West End. Banks lost that game to WEHS. Was David Cutcliff - the present FBHC at Duke - on that Banks team as well? BTW, the famous pair in the "Punt Bama Punt" game in 1972 - Bama punter Grag Gantt and Auburn DB David Langner (who ran both blocked punts in for TDs - had been senior classmates at Woodlawn in 1969. That was also the year I received my MA degree from UAB.
