Football Moving Ahead
Siuslaw Football is progressing as the school works on finishing up the requirements set forth by Lane County Public Health and the Oregon Health Authority in order to play 11 0n 11 full contact. Siuslaw High school athletic Director Chris Johnson says that if all goes well today the team could don their helmets tomorrow and if that happens they should be able to have the appropriate number of practices in full safety equipment to participate in a jamboree.

Siuslaw is scheduled to have a 5 game season beginning on March 5th at LaPine.
