EWU seniors remember camaraderie more than results

At the end of it all Saturday afternoon, the Eastern Washington football players didn’t waste any time pondering the scoreboard, the what-ifs, even the end of the road to Frisco.

The ball was almost on the turf when wide receiver Brandon Kaufman extended his 6-foot-5-inch frame, stretched his hands grass-high and pulled in the ball as his body slammed to the ground. Everyone noticed. Head coach Beau Baldwin nodded.
