    Default Matt Russell's thoughts on the death of Colorado's 1994 Heisman Trophy winner, Rashaan Salaam

    ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The University of Colorado's football team was among the nation's finest in the 1990s, and Rashaan Salaam and Matt Russell were two of the biggest reasons why.

    The two were teammates at CU for two seasons, the second of which saw the Buffaloes roll to an 11-1 season that ended in a Fiesta Bowl win and the No. 3 season-ending ranking in both polls.

    In the wake of Salaam's death, Russell, a consensus All-American at CU, took time to share his thoughts on his friend, former teammate and 1994 Heisman Trophy winner:

    "Rashaan was as dynamic off the field as he was on the field as a player. He was a fiercely loyal friend, someone who was always in your corner and had your back. He was the ultimate teammate and supportive of everyone in his locker room. If there was ever a guy who was going to get a personal foul for protecting someone on his team, Rashaan was that guy.
