I got a holiday phone visit with one of my ex-players, Lester Towns. Lester is in coaching now and he's getting ready to help Alabama beat Texas in the Rose Bowl for the national championship. Wow! Lester has been working with the Crimson Tide for the last two years under their fine coach, Nick Saban.

I talked with former Husky Lester Towns on the phone yesterday and told him how impressed I was with his team, the Carolina Panthers. Obviously, he was excited to be playing in the Super Bowl against Damon Huard's New England Patriots. He told me 15,000 fans met the team bus at the parking lot when they returned from Philadelphia.

With two potential starters on the shelf for spring and the graduations of Ben Mahdavi and Jafar Williams, it appeared that the Husky linebacker corps would be thin and depleted. However, after watching and talking with the top five varsity players, I'm convinced that they are more than capable of carrying on the great tradition that comes with the position.
