Arizona State head football coach Todd Graham and his son, Bo, had a recruiting trip they won’t soon forget, as they traveled to Texas this weekend to look at a prospect. Graham says it happened at about 35,000 feet over the New Mexico desert, when the small plane they were on lost pressurization.

 “I’ve never had the oxygen masks come down and that kind of deal happening,” Graham said. “But it was definitely scary.”

Graham says it was frightening and surreal to see the pilots working to keep the plane from crashing. Nobody was hurt and the plane made an emergency landing in Albuquerque.
