Outlaws athlete spotlight

The Outlaws are shining a spotlight on wrestler and baseball player Ben Cooper, who just signed with Umpqua Community College as a wrestler, and on softball standout Anna Landon.

Coach Matt Hilgers said:

"Ben Cooper is one of the hardest workers in our program. He has consistently demonstrated the kind of player we want to build our program around. Ben has the ability to focus on baseball every day regardless of what's happening outside our sport. Ben is what I like to call a 'foxhole guy." He is the type of person you want on your side. As a student, I have only heard positive things regarding him. Conversations I have had with his teachers are always positive towards him His character on the field is also his character in the classroom."

Coach Garry Barr said:

"Senior softball player Anna Landon is starting at second base. In the first five games, she leads the team with a .643 batting average with seven singles a double, and one triple. On defense, she had five attempts and nine putouts. She has yet to make an error. Always positive, Anna is a great role model for younger players and the perfect teammate. Anna also is an important participant in the 15-member band playing at the April 7 band festival."
