From a team that lost its first game 20-0, UW football has grown into the most passionately followed spots program in the state, drawing 72,000 fans a game every fall Saturday to Husky Stadium. In Sonny Sixkillers Tales from the Huskies Sideline, the authors take fans on a tour of some of the most memorable and hilarious--as well as the long forgotten--moments in UWs storied football history. From the Sooner Schooner game to the 1991 National championship, former Washington quarterback Sonny Sixkiller has seen it all. In this book he shares tales of the players and coaches that have made UW football great, like Don James, Jim Owens, Warren Moon. Hugh McElhenny, Steve Emtman, and Marques Tuiasosopo. He takes readers through his memories of Rose Bowl victories and all of Washingtons great rivalries. Along the way. Sixkiller also tells tales of some of the lesser known or long forgotten moments, like the 1963 team that lost its first three games but ended up in the Rose Bowl- the two games he played against Purdue, each won in thrilling fashion by the Huskies- and many other coaches and players whom time has forgotten. No other Northwest team has the tradition, the following, or the history of success of Washington football. In Sonny Sixkillers Tales from the Huskies Sideline, the greatest stories of Washington football are told by one of the players who made Husky football what it is today.
