Military Bowl results … Duke 36 – UCF 13 … Great beginning for a new head football coach. Mike Elko.

Today’s football action includes the Pinstripe Bowl, Cheez-It Bowl and the Alamo Bowl.

As a long time observer of ACC sports, my favorite Duke football player was Sonny Jurgensen. The Wilmington native had a great collegiate career at Duke and later in DC with the Washington Redskins and in Philadelphia … He retired 1974 after playing 11 seasons with the Redskins and 7 with the Eagles. After his retirement, he became an announcer (1983). He earned a spot in the NFL Hall of Fame and his #9 Redskin jersey has never been worn by anyone else and has been retired or will be soon. He still resides in the DC area, at Mount Vernon, Virginia, about 20 miles from DC. Sonny Jurgensen, New Hanover High School alum, Wilmington, NC.
