As fans count down to Saturday's final game before the Husky Stadium renovation, we asked people who played, coached, cheered and worked there for their favorite moments.
Today, All-American safety Lawyer Milloy (1993-95), the first defensive back to lead the Huskies in tackles in back-to-back seasons, reveals his most memorable Husky Stadium moment. But Milloy's moment came not on the field, but beneath the stadium in the team's meeting room.
"My most memorable moment didn't happen on the field. It was when coach Don James stepped down.
"I remember that they called everybody into the auditorium. At first, nobody knew what was going on. We were all confused. I hadn't even been on field yet. I was still going with the flow.
"I remember him being up there saying he was going to step down. He was our coach, a father figure. It was almost like a father telling the kids he was leaving mom."
Milloy, 37, is retired after 15 seasons in the NFL. He won a Super Bowl in the 2001 season with the New England Patriots before finishing his career with the Seahawks in 2009 and 2010.
