This year Arizona State University's football coach Todd Graham started a new tradition by honoring defensive players who display high character by allowing them to wear the number 42 camouflage practice jersey. The now retired number belonged to the legendary player Pat Tillman who died while serving in the military in Afghanistan in 2004. The first football player to be honored with the legendary player's jersey is Alden Darby. Cronkite News reporter Fahim Rasul has the full story.
