Whether broadcasting the Wildcats' football and basketball games on television or coaching its club rugby team, Dave Sitton was passionate about University of Arizona athletics.
When he took over local UA basketball television color commentator duties in 2009-10, Corey Williams was understandably apprehensive.
I was shivering in my slippers about cancer when Dave Sitton slapped me on the back and showed me how to do it-- and he had lymphoma--the bad boy. For chemo he’d wear camouflage and go full on warrior. And he’d laugh telling the tale of the nurses marveling at his getup and his boot camp att…

Jesse Kelly had pretty much won last night’s Congressional District 8 GOP primary by the time early ballots were counted.
High school graduate Jesse Kelly defeated a Harvard educated Air Force pilot, a nice American named Dave Sitton and Frank “Spank me, I’m bad” Antenori. Now that the fat lady has sung and the primary is over it’s time for Act II of “The Barber of Civility”: A contest between the guy who …
