Correction on Fellner-Cornell connection

It has been reported in several places that UW signee Nate Fellner is the nephew of Bo Cornell, who played for the Huskies in the Jim Owens era and was a captain of the 1970 team. Among the places that info was included was in the Seattle Times yesterday
However, I’m told today by a member of the family that Nate Fellner is not directly related to Cornell. The confusion arose since Fellner is the cousin of James Cornell, a UW booster mentioned in this story last August. But as that story made clear, there is no direct relation from Fellner to Bo Cornell.
It is correct, however, that Fellner is the grandson of one-time Washington State and Fresno State coach Jim Sweeney.
