FEELS SO RIGHT: Tucker Wyatt was selected to play in the first football game in the country since March. Suiting up as number 44 for the North side, Wyatt played in Kearney at the Shrine Bowl on Saturday, July 11 at UNK’s Foster Field. He received the call roughly three weeks before the game, and mentioned during a radio interview with KRVN that he has been trying to bulk up after losing some weight from the previous season so he didn’t get “thrown around quite as much.” Wyatt played on the Gothenburg High School football team for all four years of his high school career.

GOLFING BUDDIES: Above at left, GHS athletes Seth Daup, on the left and Jake Scherer the right, competed in a Nebraska Junior Golf Tournament (NJGT) last Wednesday at Wild Horse Golf Club. Because there was no golf season for the boys this year, to be recruited by colleges it is almost imperative they play in these types of tournaments through the summer months to accumulate posted scores in the hopes of earning college scholarships. College coaches can browse the rankings on the websites to help in their recruiting process. The boys regularly compete against schools from the east like Omaha, Lincoln and Kearney. Top right: Daup gets a feel for where he needs the ball to drop. Bottom right: Scherer is currently in 33rd (out of 127 golfers) place in the overall standings.
