Dougie Flutie's Story

Doug Flutie is a legend in New England. The scrappy little quarterback from Natick who almost single armedly put Boston College on the national college football map will forever be 22 years old, slinging the ball through the Miami night to Gerald Phelan to beat the Hurricanes in one of the greatest college football games. Jackie McMullen has a wonderful story in today's Boston Globe about Doug Flutie, Jr., Doug's autistic son. It is touching, and reminds us of the human factor behind the famous athlete. I hope you will all consider donating to the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism.
