Hucks: Ex-Bronco Goes Home Again

Jake Plummer is back in Colorado, rekindling his love for football. Last Sunday, New York Times reporter Hunter Atkins described the former quarterback’s retreat from the Denver Broncos and professional football this way: “A quarterback known for his daring decisions and scrambling abilities, Plummer moved away with his wife, Kollette, a former Broncos cheerleader, to a remote pocket of northern Idaho.” That “remote pocket of northern Idaho” was, of course, Sandpoint. Coeur d’Alene gets a brief New York Times shoutout for hosting a leg of the professional tour called Helluva Handball Bash. In October 2008, Plummer, a top-flight handballer, brought the tour to the Lake City. Now, Plummer has a handball court 10 minutes from his East Boulder home – and his wife is near her family/DFO, SR Huckleberries print. More here.
