Shot put

Normally there are more judges than spectators when it comes to shot put. Not so yesterday at the Raider Invitational. Tylor King is also on the football team, and a large contingent of football players and other SOU athletes came out to support him. Having dozens cheer him on, Tylor nearly hit 55 feet. Even the shortest of his six throws traveled much farther than any of his competitors. He has a good chance to place at Nationals next month in Alabama.

Here are the 11/28/15 games:
Game 1 – Tabor @ Morningside
Game 2 – Southern Oregon @ Baker (Kan.)
Game 3 – Marian @ Grand View (Iowa)
Game 4 – Montana Tech @ Saint Francis (Ind.)

Predictions:
Game 1 – Morningside
Game 2 – Southern Oregon
Game 3 – Marian
Game 4 – Montana Tech

I was correct in 7 of my 8 first-round predictions. Tabor is the only team remaining that isn’t a top ten team (in my mind–not the coaches).

If my round two picks come true then SOU should be at Morningside for the semifinals, and Marian should be at Montanta Tech–setting up a possible all-Frontier Conference championship game in Daytona.

Fun Football Fact

@SOURaiders @SOU_Football @Sectionchamp2

Since losing to the Raiders on September 12, Eastern Oregon University has won, lost, won, lost, won, lost, and won–in that order. Since they won last week against College of Idaho, they are due for a loss this Saturday when SOU visits. Massey has Southern Oregon as a 4-point favorite. Compughterratings picks SOU by 11.

BIG final edition

football book

I continue to get lots of questions about the photo book documenting the SOU 2014 football season. One of the main questions is about the differences between the editions. There are three editions.

The first edition was an 8.5″ x 11″ softcover with 33 pages inside and was limited to a print run of just 10 copies. It sold for $50 each and sold out in 48 hours.

The second edition was an 8.5″ x 11″ hardcover with 43 pages inside and was limited to a print run of 30 copies. It sold for $80 each, and there is only one copy left here.

When it became clear a little over a week ago that all copies were going to be sold I realized that I hadn’t kept a copy for myself. I began tinkering with the second edition to make a single copy and eventually it grew into 51 pages and a much larger size (11″ x 14″). A couple of the photos in this edition are huge. (11″ x 28″!) After having spent a few hours on this third edition, I decided I should probably print more than just one copy so I printed 10. I’m keeping one. I’m donating two copies that were autographed by the entire team, coaching staff, and Mr. Raider this past Saturday at the awards banquet. One of these copies can be yours if you submit one of the two winning bids at the 2015 SOU Raider Club Scholarship Dinner and Auction on April 23, 2015. All proceeds will go to future SOU student athletes to help offset some of their tuition so bid high as this is a great cause.

A bunch of other copies were snatched up at the awards banquet by parents. I do have two (unsigned, sealed) copies of the third edition remaining for $100 each. Email me if interested.
