    That sucks. I grew up in Southern Colorado in the 70s and 80s. Dee Dowis was the ****.

    Very sad. Triple Option QB = Dee Dowis! He could have run that at UN or OU, with ease.

    My family had season tickets during his run at AF; I loved going to those games and watching him play. It's a sad day for the zoomies.

    Word was that he was a really good guy off the field as well. Big loss.

    I will never forget him for coming up for Sal's funeral in his dress blues. Just him. no fanfare. A total class act. Just wanted to pay his respects because he saw it as the right thing to do.

    When we met the Air Force squad at the Governor's mansion the next year there was tremendous respect and camaradere between the two teams. I think Dowis's actions the year before contributed to that.

    If you want to run the option you show a kid tape of Dee Dowis. When its done you look at him and say "any questions?"
