    Yeah, It was a long time ago, but a good memory. All of us would like to see Jon Embree and staff get the team there and beyond someday.

    Remember my post about Mark Cooney? He was on that team. God bless you Mark!

    Thanks for mentioning Mark. He was more than a good guy. It bothered me too much to post anything when I learned of his passing. His locker was next to mine. I only knew him that one season as he was a sophomore and I had made the team as a scrub, walk-on, varsity reserve as a senior. I had some eligibility left, but went to grad school the next year. Mark was a good player, always hustled and was somewhat quiet off the field. He got to play a year with the Green Bay Packers after graduating. Rest in Peace, Mark. And God bless.
    Take care, everyone.
