It was a cold, unforgettable night in Cheney, WA back in late fall of 2015. While the Eastern Washington Eagles were trying to get back into their FCS playoff game against the Illinois State Redbirds, a medical emergency in the stands overshadowed play on the field. A family’s life was being forever changed night.
After the game & the requisite press conferences were through, I walked back up to the press box. I looked out on the field & reflected at the night’s events. With the fog settling in over the field, all I could see were the lights, like two eyes staring back at me.
