Oregon to be first state to use high school football safety program

High school football programs statewide are kicking off the 2016 season with a focus on coaching education and student-athlete safety through USA Football’s Heads Up Football program. Beginning Feb. 13, USA Football will conduct more than one dozen Heads Up Football Player Safety Coach clinics across Oregon.

For the good of its student-athletes, the Oregon School Activities Association (OSAA) is the country’s first state high school activities association to require its member schools’ football coaches to enroll in USA Football’s Heads Up Football program for the 2016 season.


Dominant from the get-go

At the conclusion of the first half of the Far West League basketball season, it appears as though everybody else is playing for second-place.

The reigning FWL champion Brookings-Harbor Lady Bruins opened their game against the South Umpqua Lancers on Friday by forcing Lancer turnover on seven of their first eight possessions. 

As they so often do, the Lady Bruins turned turnovers into points -— opening the game on a 13-1 run and never looking back as they defeated an out matched South Umpqua team, 69-39, Friday at South Umpqua High School.

Will the Chetco side-drift this season?

On Thursday, John Weber and Damien Hawley-Jones from ODFW removed one of many angler-caught steelhead from their holding pen on the Chetco River in preparation for taking the fish up to Elk River Hatchery where they will be held for spawning.

Last week’s column rightfully predicted that for the most of the week, the only anglers who would be accessing the best fishing holes on the Chetco would be those who were plunking. Luckily for me, that forecast came to fruition.

The Chetco River peaked last week at 10,500 cubic feet per second on Saturday, and anglers were hoping that it would stop rising and experience an on-the-drop scenario for the rest of the week. That particular situation did occur, and anglers were able to score some very nice hatchery and wild steelhead all throughout the river from Monday through Wednesday.

The river remained over 4,000 cfs through Wednesday, which put made for a perfect plunking situation, and by late Wednesday after the sun went down, the Chetco started dropping below 4,000 cfs, which meant that on Thursday, drift-boat anglers were able to put in on the Chetco while it was at the upper 3,800 cfs flow mark and do a little side-drifting.


Comeback falls short

Nobody ever said winning in the Far West League would be easy.

The Brookings-Harbor Bruins cut a 19-point second-half deficit to just four points with just over a minute-and-a-half to play, but North Bend’s Brody Lucero buried key free throws down the stretch to defeat the Bruins, 39-32, on Tuesday at North Bend High School.
