behind ralphie, it hit me hard. >> reporter: harder than any collision you'll see on a field, the realization that for the first time ever mike macintyre enters a college football season without his coaching mentor, without his dad. >> there's a lot of time that i think and know things that he said and did that passed away this january after a lengthy battle with multiple sclerosis. >> the thing that he relayed to me the most was how to live life. he laid in that bed for seven years basically and couldn't really get out. you'd go visit him and everybody that told they'd visit him and walk in and say hey, coach, how you doing and he'd say fantastic! >> reporter: game no. 1, the first without his father. the emotions did hit mike hard as he addressed his team before kickoff.

join in. fortunately nobody got seriously hurt, but two saints and two panthers received red cards ejected from this game plus the next one and since there was only about a minute remaining the refs decided it was time to go home. jefferson wins 4-1. still of the night comes from rio dejaneiro where the 2016 paralympic games got off to a sparkling start with a mega ramp jump with a wh night. 13 athletes from colorado there representing us in the paralympics this year, should be awesome.
