A Close Call!


Former Boise State wide receiver Julian Hawkins...

was INSIDE the Dallas Cowboys practice facility this weekend when a storm FLATTENED the structure. 14 people were injured, one man (a scout) is now paralyzed. Incredibly, Hawkins escaped injury.

Our Zach Wolken talked to him by phone last night, here's what he had to say:

"I am definitely okay. I was able to get out of the debris that was falling and stuff like that. First thing I did was I got on my hands and knees and I thanked God, you know - because any of us, you don't know which way it's gonna fall." - Julian Hawkins

Wacky Weather:

Yesterday's weather was CRAZY!

Wind, rain, hail... you name it. Look at this picture of a big ol' FUNNEL CLOUD near Payette. Fortunately it didn't touch down... but it sure looked ominous.
