Here is what got me thinking this past week.
1. The Lake Region boys soccer team is looking pretty sharp in the early going. If you get a chance, head down to Ranger Country and give this team a watch, you won't be disappointed.
2. Tough loss for the NCU football team at the Barrel Bowl on Saturday, but I want to give a shout out to Owen Nadeau, who stepped up his game and played extremely well coming off of the bench. Hope to see more from him this season.
