Sanderson ended up leading the basketball program to a victory at UCLA. The 1982-83 squad ultimately went 20-12 and was eliminated in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, leaving the victory over the Bruins as the high-water mark of the season.
Former Texas A&M 'Junction Boy' and Alabama offensive line coach Dee Powell has passed away at the age of 85. Powell played for legendary football coach Paul "Bear" Bryant at Texas A&M as senior in Bryant's first year. He coached the offensive line for the Crimson Tide and helped Bryant win three national championships.
Not only did “Bear” Bryant instill a legacy of winning and success, but in a time where Alabama was viewed as one of the worst places in America, Coach Bryant transformed the narrative from uneducated farmers to one of hard work, class, and humbleness.
