I was at the game, but didn't remember the actual captains. Obviously knew that Tillman was one of them. Their stories on the Sun Devil Athletics page has been nothing short of a tear-jerker for me. Martin, Murphy, Tillman, Simmons and Richardson. What a quintet of guys that lived the fullest of Sun Devil careers and beyond. I still wonder had Michael Martin been at the 1997 Rose Bowl would the outcome have been different. His second effort after getting hit was relentless that season until the UCLA injury. I was also at that game and remember wondering what possibly could have taken him out of that game, Murohy's story today was even better. While the 1996 team was Cinderella, the 1997 team personified Snyder's desire for physical football. I don't know if I can make it through the rest, but I can't wait!
