SAN JOSE -- After a recent spring football practice, San Jose State Coach Ron Caragher gathered his team around and told them about a special group of youngsters who would be coming to Spartan Stadium to hang out for a morning with any interested players.

Quarterback Joe Gray couldn't wait to volunteer.

"I took a quick shower and then signed up my name -- and the names of the other three quarterbacks," Gray said. "I joked that they had no choice."
