High school football transfers beware, you might not be able to come back


COVID-19 shut down high school sports in Washington last spring. The virus’s affects have now led to severe changes to the schedule for the upcoming school year. A side-effect of shuffling football to the spring has been a movement of players out of state.

A local would-be senior is pursuing the ability to play football at the college level. Two weeks ago, he moved to Montana to be able to have the opportunity to play this fall.

Associate Executive Director of the WIAA, BJ Kuntz, oversees eligibility and transfers in Washington. She says she understands the desire for athletes to pursue college aspirations.

Lakers and Jazz win as NBA returns

The NBA made its return last night inside the bubble with two close games…

NBA Scoreboard

Labron James hit the go-ahead basket with 12.8-seconds remaining to help the Lakers past the clippers 103-101. Anthony Davis led Los Angeles with 34-points.

Remember the name Rudy Gobert? He was the 1st professional player to test positive for Coronavirus in March when the NBA shut down. So it was rather fitting that Gobert sank two free throws with 6.9-seconds left to give Utah a 106-104 victory over New Olreans.

Coming up today it’s Orlando and Brooklyn; Memphis and Portland; Phoenix and Washington; the Celtics and Bucks; Sacramento and San Antonio; and the Rockets and Mavericks.
