The days in eastern Oregon are starting to warm and in a typical year, athletes would be thinking of district and state meets.
This year, we all mourn the loss of sports around the region.
While we wait for student athletes to again compete, we will take a look back at some of the coaches who made or still make an impact on high school sports. To just provide you names would be boring! We are all house bound and looking for things to take up our time.
