Inside ASU Football

Nov. 26, 2003

The big game is just two days away and we are putting the final wraps on our preparation. This Friday will be a salute to our 14 seniors, so we are including some information here that you might not otherwise get. This group is about as solid as they come from top to bottom. All of these men will represent ASU well in their future endeavors. Please understand, what follows is just a brief overview of what these guys have done in their careers. The seniors will be introduced before the game on Friday with their parents in attendance on the field. There will be a special feature on the seniors in Friday's game program. Finally, a more formal tribute will be paid to this group at the Awards Banquet on Saturday evening at the Phoenician.
