UW's "Crime Dawg"
A few months ago, former UW football star, and current United States Secret Service officer, Dave Hoffmann spoke to the Husky football team. He talked about life as a Husky as well as his career path in law enforcement.
Apparently that talk had quite the impact on sophomore offensive lineman Skyler Fancher.
While dining with a friend at Chipotle in the University District a few nights ago, Fancher noticed a woman screaming at a purse snatcher as they raced by. Along with a couple of other men, he jumped a small barrier and gave chase. After about 10 minutes and a mile or so chase, they apprehended the thief and police took over.
Jerry Brewer of the Seattle Times wrote a great column about the event in today's newspaper.
During the interview, Fancher was asked if he had any career aspirations in law enforcement. The Costa Mesa, Calif., native remarked that, after he listed to Hoffmann tell his story, he actually was interested in the Secret Service and was considering a similar career path.
It is great to see former Husky stars have an impact on the current Dawgs both on and off the field!
UPDATE: Here is a transcript of an interview Fancher conducted with local television stations.
