So far it’s living up to its billing. The Cowboy Classic in Arlington, Texas September Third has been promoted as pitting a pair of top five teams. It will do just that as the Number Three Oregon Ducks face the Number Four LSU Tigers cementing the games as one of the marquee preseason games of the year. Oklahoma is ranked number one; Alabama two. Boise State rounds out the top five.
Athlete of the Week
The Sports Club, the Siuslaw News and Coast Radio Sports congraulate Elijah LaCosse as this week’s Athlete of the Week. Elijah finished the State Wrestling Championship in third place. After losing in the first round he went on to score 5 consecutive pins including a rematch against his first round opponent. He was one of only two wrestlers in the tournament to do that and scored 23 points in the 138 pound weight bracket.
Honorable mention goes to another Viking Wrestler, Hayden Muller who placed 4th in the 135 pound girls division.
