Redskins: The longtime radio color duo of Sonny Jurgensen and Sam Huff will continue for at least another season, although in reduced fashion. Red Zebra Broadcasting announced Tuesday afternoon that Huff and Jurgensen were re-signed for the coming season but that Huff would work only 10 regular-season games: all eight home games and the road games in New York and Dallas. The press release said Huff — who has been part of Redskins radio broadcasts since 1975 — chose the reduced schedule based on "the rigors of travel." As a team, Huff and Jurgensen have been part of Redskins radio broadcasts since 1981, a span including more than 600 broadcasts. Larry Michael will continue on the radio play-by-play, and Doc Walker will provide sideline reporting and commentary.

Gary Carpenter and Gary Jr. from Crofton CC and Doug and Brandon Luckett (two eagles) from Baltimore CC shared second place with 64s in the 38-team field.
