Transcript A, Athletes shine in draft Seven UH players chosen by NFL on draft day Lndre Ware's front yard was the site of mayhem for family, friends and media, the likes of which the small town of Dickinson had never seen before. Lined with cars, 24th street in Dickinson, Texas was a plethora of television station trucks, curious neighbors and an ESPN trailer, complete with satellite dish. The unlucky ones who could not gain entry into Ware's packed house were huddled outside under a canopy pitched in the front yard. They waited anxiously for the announcement of who had drafted Ware. As Ware was trying out for the Detroit Lions two weeks before, Detroit Head Coach Wayne Fontes said, "Last year when we tried out Barry Sanders, I lit a cigar just like this one as I walked off the field." Fontes didn't light his cigar at Ware's tryout, saying that he didn't have a match. But at 11:37 a.m. that Sunday, Ware received a phone call and before any names were mentioned he knew exactly who it was. "He said, 'I'm about to light one up,'" said Ware, who was the seventh overall pick by the Lions in the first round of the 1990 NFL Draft. "He asked me if I wanted to be a Detroit Lion," said Ware. For Ware, being drafted by the Lions puts him in what seems to be an ideal situation. The offensive coordinator for the Lions, June Jones, is one of the inventors of the Run and Shoot of fense. Linebacker Lamar Lathon made big headlines when he was taken by the Houston Oilers in the first round. In the second round, DB Alton Montgomery was taken by the Denver Broncos. Defensive linemen Alfred Oglesby and Craig Veasey were both taken in the third round. Oglesby went to Miami, Veasey went to Pittsburgh. Both were highly rated going into the draft. Offensive tackle Joey Banes was also taken by the Oilers in the eleventh round. Defensive back Chris Ellison was taken in the elevnth round by the Atlanta Falcons. -Tom Fontaine ,hris Ellison (left) explains details of the Cougar defense.P/iofo by Tony Bullard 302 RE#>or^OT
