Ramsden football

Run to daylight — Wallowa High School graduate, Gus Ramsden, leaves West-side players eating his dust on a 50-yard run during the opening series of play during the East-West Eight-Man All-Star football game played at Eastern Oregon University on Saturday, June 22. Gus Ramsden, Tyler Homan and Coy Aschenbrenner will be playing in the Shrine Football game in Baker City on August 3.

Three Wallowa County high school football players earned the distinction of playing in the 67th Oregon East-West All Star football game on Sunday, Aug. 3 in Baker City. The game is played in the 11-man format and players come from 1A-4A schools.

The selectees include Gus Ramsden of Wallowa High School, Tyler Homan of Joseph Charter School and Coy Aschenbrenner of Enterprise High School. Coaches of 1A-4A schools select the players.

Players were dropped off in Wilsonville on Friday, July 28 for a special dinner. The following day saw all the players visiting the Shriners Hospital for Children in Portland to visit the patients. 

They started their trip eastward later that day, stopping to eat dinner in Pendleton before spending the night at the Eastern Oregon University dorms where both teams will stay and practice on the EOU football field. The squads started practice on the following day.
