On today's "Current Sports with Al Martin" it's down, set, hike!

The recent comments of legendary athlete Bo Jackson called that very matter into question, as Jackson stated that he would not allow his kids to play the game. Then, it's onto the local level, where Mason HS football head coach Jerry VanHavel announced his retirement. Hear about the decorated coach's decision and his plans for the future in a Current Sports special. Finally, the excitement is teeming for this weekend's slate of NFL playoff action, and the crew on hand sets its sights.
