Local Sports – AOTW – Alamo Bowl

Siuslaw Wrestling Standout, Andrew Tupua, has been named Coast Radio Sports’ Athlete of the Week.  Wrestling at 138 pounds, the Viking sophomore captured his second straight tournament championship; this time at the Willamette High School Invitational….Honorable Mention this week to Isaiah Burkhalter, who went 4-1 at the Willamette Tournament, finishing second at 126 pounds.


Quarterback Marcus Mariota had 386 total yards and Number Oregon returned two interceptions for touchdowns, spoiling Texas coach Mack Brown’s farewell with a runaway 30-7 victory Monday night. The Ducks dominated throughout even though their famously high-powered offense scored just one touchdown, when Josh Huff turned a short pass from Mariota into a spectacular 16-yard sprint to the end zone in front of a sell out crowd at the Valero Alamo Bowl in San Antonio.
