And that means High School Playoffs!
The last week of the football regular season will determine whether some of the usual suspects even get to play, much less where.
Meanwhile, Volleyball is already eliminating people, and over the weekend will set the fields for the tournaments on Veterans’ Day Weekend. Oregonprepsports will have live reports from the 4A/3A tournament at Lane Community College in Eugene, and the 2A/1A tournament from Pacific University in Forest Grove.
Our friends at OregonLive will have coverage of the 6A/5A tournament from the University of Portland, but be sure to check here for the latest Volleyball news from Eugene & Forest Grove.
If you don’t have tickets to the OSU-ASU or UO-UW games Saturday, you might find an enjoyable alternative to raking leaves in rain gear would be the State Cross Country meets, or support your local high school hero in the Soccer Playoffs, starting Saturday.
A couple of notes from football deserve one more mention before the playoff chase starts.
Hopefully everyone caught the Jesuit-Southridge game on Fox Sports Net, or if you were at a JV game, can get a tape from your buddy. No, it wasn’t a “great” game, at least in terms of close score, etc. Rather it was the usual Jesuit show, line up 5 dozers, and have Paul Weatheroy run through the hole. But when you have the entire starting line back from a state championship, and a back that reads those holes, what would you do?
But it was significant because Oregon High School sports got nationwide attention, and a few other teams and players got plugs too. Thanks to Fox Sports Net for providing everyone with this glimpse of High School football in our state.
Lastly, in case anyone hasn’t yet seen it, here’s a link to the Oregonian’s story on Sisters’ RB Cory McCaffrey. It’s a not only a good story, but in my experience, unfortunately, not all that unique of an experience. Too many of our young men & women face an overdose of the world sooner than most parents would like. This is just the latest example of the true strength a lot of these young student-athletes have, and also of how quality coaches, and quality parents and other supporters of programs make a difference in the world.
