    In battle, a field general is someone in control, a voice that when it barks an order, the cadets follow suit. Football is no different.
    Oftentimes compared to hand-to-hand combat, football is a game made for warriors. And when the Huskies head into battle come August, coach Daran Hays believes he’s got a smart and highly capable field general at the helm in sophomore quarterback Kyle Elliott.

    The recent passing of baseball Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn has brought the risks of chewing tobacco back to the forefront of the baseball world.
