Ray Childress in pursuit
Ray Childress, 3rd overall pick in the 1985 NFL draft and five-time Pro Bowler --- but most importantly the dad of incoming transfer DL Wells Childress --- is featured in this great article in the South Bend Tribune.
Childress is about to be enshrined in the College Football Hall of Fame, which is in South Bend of course.
I’d like to take this opportunity to publicly congratulate Ray on behalf of all Columbia fans and invite him to be a half time interview guest this coming season!

#64: Craig’s Best Return
After Columbia fell behind, 17-14, to Lafayette early in the second quarter the Lions needed a lift.
They got one right away when Craig Hamilton exploded for his best kick return on 2010.
Hamilton fielded the kick at his own 10, and burst all the way to the Leopard 36 before Greg Stripe finally brought him down.
The strong field position thanks to Hamilton’s return set up Columbia for another TD just three minutes later.
I know there are a lot of great recently-graduated seniors Columbia football fans are worried about replacing in 2011.
They’re guys like Alex Gross, Andrew Kennedy, Adam Mehrer, Calvin Otis, etc.
But no one should overlook the contribution recent grad Craig Hamilton made to this team and how hard it may be to replace him this fall as well.
