Don James dies from pancreatic cancer

Legendary Husky football coach Don James has passed away following a battle with pancreatic cancer. His diagnosis came just last month and very little has been discussed publicly since that time. He began chemotherapy after two surgeries confirmed the presence of a tumor on his pancreas.

Many people still don’t realize the gravity of this diagnosis. Resources are needed to improve diagnosis and treatment of this disease. As his final gift to us all, Don James’ legend will help bring awareness to the cause.


RIP Don James “The Dawfather”

Jake Locker hurt

Jake Locker took a vicious hit to the helmet in the 2nd quarter of tonight’s game at Oregon State in Corvallis. This was an absolutely devastating moment for any member of Husky Nation. He lay motionless on the field for a couple minutes before they rolled him over onto his back and removed the face mask from his helmet. They took him away in an ambulance and hopefully more information on his condition will be released soon. For now, all thoughts are with Jake and his family.
