My apologies for only having the barest bones of this but:
During a telecast the commentators recalled a coach describing one of his players in something like the following terms.
“If you needed a yard, he’d get you two;
If you needed ten yards, he’d get you two.”
It sounded like an old story, might even be well known. I don’t know the team or position. But despite the stone cold trail, would anyone know who the coach was and to which player he was referring? I’ve got a work colleague who fits this description to a tee.
