McCown family likes reunion, not outcome

RUSTON, La. -- It was a tough loss for Luke McCown and his teammates. But, although Louisiana Tech lost 44-41 to visiting Hawaii this past weekend, there were consolations for Tech's quarterback.

McCown's entire family was in attendance -- parents Pat and Robin as well as older brothers Randy and Josh. Sister Amy is a member of the Tech dance team.

The convergence of the entire McCown clan during football season is a rarity, especially considering Josh is a quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals.

"It's real nice, especially having the entire family with Josh's kids and my daughter," said Randy, a former quarterback at Texas A&M. "It's not very often we get together."

Josh was able to make the trip to Ruston because the Cardinals had a bye week.

"It's fun for me to get to see Luke because my opportunities are so slim," Josh said. "I watch as much as I can."
