Sack-Happy Tim Bush Had ‘Best Heart’

The sack-happiest man in Montana Grizzly history wasn't the biggest or the strongest, and as a walk-on he certainly wasn't the most highly recruited. But Tim Bush was the best, and not just on the gridiron. "Tim was a leader, always," said Dave DeCoite, a strong safety from Truckee, Calif. "He'd get everybody amped up for games, and he was just a dominating defensive end. Not the biggest or the baddest, but he had the best heart I've ever seen." DeCoite is saying this Tuesday, four days after Bush, 29, died in a mining accident near his hometown of Pinehurst, Idaho. Of all the Griz who played alongside Bush, DeCoite might've been the closest, and he knows more about Bush than the 34.5 sacks and 50 tackles for loss most of us remember him for/Fritz Neighbor, Missoulian.

Question: A relative was surprised that Tim Bush didn't have life insurance for his family. Do you have life insurance?
