SHUKC Spotlight - Ben Johnson (KU)

by David Brox, davidbrox@shukc.com

I got an opportunity to put together a highlight for one our 2012 Top Prospect Ben Johnson who plays for the Kansas Jayhawks.  I was just a little rusty on my highlight creation but it was fun to put together.  I am very proud of the work that Johnson has put in.  A lot of his plays are doing the dirty work to help make the offense go.  Check him out!

Mark Western Named SHUKC's "Vivian Jordan" COY

by David Brox, davidbrox@shukc.com

Schlagle girls head coach Mark Western claims our only named award.  Vivian Jordan was a long time coach at Washington High School that passed away during our first few seasons of following the area.  We named our girls Coach of the Year award in her honor.  Coach Western led his Schlagle team to their first state birth in many years and a share of the KCAL league title for a second straight year.  Western's impact at Schlagle has been incredibly positive and has the Stallions headed in the right direction.
