    Lummi Nation football team has stellar record
    Friday, November 12, 2004

    The Lummi Nation of Washington is feeling revitalized thanks to its high school football team, whose 9-1 record and coach have become a source of pride.

    The Lummi Nation Blackhawks are headed to the Class B-8 state playoffs after averaging 45 points per game with a 20-point margin of victory. It's a far cry from years past, when the team lost every single game and no one showed up for the games.

    Coach Jim Sandusky, a former Canadian Football League player who also signed with the NFL, is credited with turning things around. Although some tribal members were skeptical at first, they have come to embrace him. Sandusky's mother was part Colville.
