Saint Mary's alumnus Doug Rosales '01, who played on the college football team and is now battling Lou Gehrig's disease, was the subject of a front-page article in the Contra Costa Times on Jan. 13.

The article noted that former Gael football players and friends of Rosales were gathering at Saint Mary's College on Jan. 13 to support the ailing 27-year-old.

"This situation is reuniting generations of Gaels," Jaime Villanueva, a former center on the team and one of Rosales' closest friends, was quoted.
