Colorado Governor Bill Ritter announced today that this Friday, 08 February 2008, will be declared "Sonny Lubick Day" in honor of the former head football coach of my alma mater, Colorado State University.
The official ceremony will take place Friday afternoon in the governor's office at the State Capitol in Denver.
Sonny is one heck of a good guy, and he deserves every bit of the $259,000 that CSU still owes him. His teams were a force to be reckoned with on the field and I don't know if there was ever a nicer, more considerate person in his position. I'm glad that the athletic directors chose a former Ram, Steve Fairchild, to succeed Sonny, and I can only hope that he will carry on his legacy.
