Brigham Young quarterback Robbie Bosco, who passed for more than 500 yards in the Cougars' opening victory over Boston College last week, has taken out a $500,000 insurance policy on himself.
Bosco said he bought the policy during the offseason for $4,000 from a Massachusetts-based firm, American Sports Underwriters.
Bosco, a senior, led the nation in total offense in 1984 with 327.7 yards per game while completing 238 of 458 passes for 3,875 yards and 33 touchdowns in leading BYU to the national championship.
Bosco said the policy covered any injury -- football-related or not -- that would prevent him from becoming a professional player . . .
Bob Westermann, Gallaudet College's first full-time football coach, also has been named the school's athletic director. Westermann, who became Gallaudet's coach in January, was formerly the coach at Model Secondary School for the Deaf . . .
Clive Campbell and Richard Cliff scored first-half goals and goalkeeper John Sanbill earned the shutout without making a save as George Washington defeated Tampa, 2-0, in the Coca-Cola Soccer Classic at Virginia. In the second game, senior forward Jeff Gaffney of Bethesda had a goal and an assist to lead third-ranked Virginia over West Virginia 3-0.
