  • Video: Former Grant High RB Devontae Booker vs. UCLA linebacker Myles Jack

    Devontae Booker, the terrific Utah running back out of Grant High School, tells the story of his confrontations last year with UCLA's hard-hitting linebacker Myles Jack. Booker is getting some pre-season Heisman Trophy consideration. He passed up the NFL draft to get his sociology degree at Utah. Now Booker is a senior. He's expected to have a big year at Utah and maybe become a a first-round NFL draft pick.

About This Blog


Andy Furillo has been a reporter with The Sacramento Bee since 1991. He covered mostly crime and punishment until April 2015, when he began writing a sports column. He believes art inspires in many forms: a Jerry Garcia guitar solo, Van Gogh's "Starry Night," and Madison Bumgarner's five innings of masterpiece relief in Game 7 of the 2014 World Series. Sport is art, and sport is fun, and it is filled with interesting people. Furillo hopes to bring out the best of it all. Contact Andy Furillo at afurillo@sacbee.com or 916-321-1141.
