In memory ...

Rosalind Williams, the mother of the former Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams, recently was unpacking some of her son’s belongings when she found one of his notebooks.

Inside, were handwritten notes in which Darrent spelled out his goals –- helping his community, adding sporting and arts facilities for inner city youths, running football camps and back-to-school drives.

“It was as if Darrent was saying, 'Mama, here’s your purpose,'" wrote Rosalind Williams. "We all know I can’t get out there on the football field and live out Darrent’s career dream, but I can fulfill his dreams for his communities."

Now she is trying. With the help of others, Rosalind Williams is hosting The Inaugural Darrent Williams Foundation Fundraising Gala on Friday, June 13 at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, Texas. There will be dinner, dancing and a silent auction.

The city of Fort Worth Texas has declared the next day, June 14th, Darrent Williams Day, when there will be a parade in the city.

Plummer cleans up

Tampa Bay has resigned itself to the fact that quarterback Jake Plummer will not report to the Buccaneers. But Plummer still is getting his athletic thrills.

Last weekend, Plummer and his brother Eric won the Sandpoint West Athletic Club’s 18th annual Spring Classic handball tournament in Sandpoint, Idaho.

Plummer would rather play handball than football –- and it doesn’t look like he’ll be calling any audibles on his life, now or ever.
