NWSB Insider Dave B brings us another Northwest Athlete Profile of a hometown hero in Seattle. Marques Tuiasosopo was a leader and a champion as a Washington Huskies quarterback before entering the NFL with the Oakland Raiders. While his NFL career didn’t pan out, Tui immediately went to work to give back with his alma mater Washington. Soon after, he landed at UCLA as a specialty coach.
KShell flashes back to the year 2000 for the epic UW Huskies vs. Colorado Buffaloes matchup. This game proved to be closer than most had expected as the Huskies would have to rally for the first of many fourth quarter comebacks. Marques Tuiasosopo, Willie Hurst, Paul Arnold, Larry Tripplett, Rick Neuheisel are just some of the names to remember.
