Remembering Coach Owens
With Saturday's passing of former UW football coach and athletic director Jim Owens, there have been several columns that looked back at his time at the UW. Most followers of Husky football describe Owens as the second-most prominent figure in UW football history - behind Don James. In leading the Huskies to the 1960 Helms Foundation national title, he certainly cemented himself into legendary status in the UW program.
In addition to Tom Porter's book that was published a copule of years ago - A Football Band of Brothers, a few local columnists have written columns reflecting on Owens' life.
