Longtime Eastern Washington SID Dave Cook retires, excited to become just a fan

As a football coach, Mike Kramer figures he has worked with about 10 sports information directors, and nine of them, he said, would resemble Dave Cook.“All the SIDs have a common thread,” Kramer said. “Loyalty to the school, and a sense of eternal favor to the coaches, because the coaches are always so emotionally dangerous: dangerous to themselves and the institution.”

Forever Enshrined in Indy

From the Indy 500 Museum to the Indiana Hall of Fame to the NCAA Hall of Champions, the Spokane area is well represented. Driver Tom Sneva, former Gonzaga basketball star Maria Stack and Eastern Washington football (2011) and WSU basketball (1917) all are permanently displayed alongside other legends of sports. In addition, former Zag Domantas Sabonis’ face is prominently featured around Indianapolis, where former EWU basketball star Rodney Stuckey played three seasons and ex-Cheney High lineman was a No. 2 pick of the Indianapolis Colts.
