JOB WELL DONE

Discovery Canyon assistant wrestling and football coach Todd Adams can take a breather now that his daughter, Grace Adams, has signed with Western State to play soccer. Grace is the youngest of Todd's three children. Her older brothers, Nick and Garrett, are on wrestling scholarships at the University of Northern Colorado and Western State, respectively.

“I'm done,” Todd said. “It's over now. Now I can just rest.”

CARLSON DONS AUBURN COLORS

The Classical Academy kicker Daniel Carlson finally inked his deal with Auburn. The All-American kicker committed to the Southeastern Conference school last July.

“Summer classes start June 10,” Carlson said. “I have about two weeks of summer vacation this year. Oh well. It should be fun.”

HE SAID IT

“He's the kind of player that comes along rarely in a coach's career.”

The Classical Academy soccer coach Blake Galvin on Evan Young, who signed with Indiana Wesleyan. Young scored 100 career goals and tallied 59 assists in his four years as a starter for the Titans - both school records.
