UW quarterback Johnny DuRocher was amazingly upbeat Tuesday as he briefed the media about his apparently benign brain tumor, which will be removed Nov. 30.
I'll have a full story in the paper Wednesday, but here is a quote that struck me especially:
"People are shocked because you don't ever think somebody's going to get a brain tumor," he said. "But it's been good. The guys have been good. People have been real supportive. I've been getting a lot of e-mails and a lot of phone calls. It really does help."
So, if anyone wants to send DuRocher a card, you can do so care of the university by writing: Johnny DuRocher, c/o Football office, University of Washington, Box 354080, Seattle WA 98195-4080.
