The spokesman for Vick's five
attorney team would not confirm that
the discussions revolved around a
possible plea agreement.

ESPN also reported yesterday
there was some disagreement within the
legal team as to whether Vick should
enter a plea, or take a chance on a
trial.

Either way, many say the clock is
ticking on the 27 year old
quarterback's future.

Not surprisingly, that with 8

defense refuses to let his players get

a "Big Head" -

Overconfident players are
something Bud Foster says he will not

Johnson is replacing Jim Muscaro,
who stepped down at North Cross after
coaching football for 35 seasons.

Replacing a legend is never easy,
so to ease into that transition
period, Johnson has brought in some

highly- respected assistants to help
him get the job done - guys like Fred
Wagner and John Hinkle.

Despite temperatures well over 100
degrees, Elvis Presley fans are lining
up outside Graceland today--the 30th
anniversary of the singer's death.

The commemoration turned tragic for
at least one Elvis fan-- a 67- year-
old woman who was found dead in her
trailer at the Graceland campground
from a heat-related illness.

Elvis was just 42 when he died from
heart disease, after years of drug
abuse...but his legend and his music
live on..
