The Return of John Elway
For all y’all who have been missing John Elway’s magic touch in football will be glad to hear that he’s coming back. Of course, he’s coming back as a quarterbacks coach for Cherry Creek High School here in the Denver area--largely, it would seem, because it will give him an opportunity to more closely tutor his son, Jack, before the young lad runs off to college.
The Elway family has a legacy of father-son tutoring. John Elway’s father, Jack, taught him the game in California, where he was a coach in the 1970s and ‘80s. He was a Broncos scout until retiring a year before his death in 2001.
The younger Jack Elway hasn’t committed to a college but has taken unofficial trips to Oregon and UCLA. John Elway played in the same conference—the PAC 10—at Stanford.
Good luck to both of them (although I still can’t find it in me to cheer for Cherry Creek--my Overland loving heart just couldn’t bear it).
Update: Nathan noticed, too.
