Big Jump

The number of confirmed "commits" to Columbia's football class of 2014 has just risen by 100%.

We've gone from 1 to 2 with the addition of Brad Losee from Eastview High School, the same school outgoing senior center Evan Sanford hails from.

Like Sanford, Losee is 6"4. But the incoming frosh is a defensive end weighing in at 235 pounds. He was 225 last year, so he seems to be going in the right direction on that score.

Miller Time

Another outgoing football senior is just getting started on his final season on the mats with the Columbia wrestling team. Lou Miller has quickly shed 33 pounds since the Brown game and competed against one of the top wrestlers from #3 Ohio State this weekend in the 197-pound level. Miller almost pulled off a huge upset, but fell by a 3-1 mark. Let's see if Lou keeps it up and gets himself an invite to the postseason.

Losee looks like a good one, but he'll need to get in the wieght room if he is only benching 265. That wouldn't be bad for a running back, but he'll need to be in the 350 range.

Evan Sanford was a tremendous center for the Lions this past year. Now, he has helped recruit a very promising player from his high school in Minnesota. That reflects very well on Sanford and the entire Columbia Football Program. The best recruiters are the players themselves.

The Columbia Men's Basketball Team also has an outstanding player coming in next September from the State of Minnesota. His name is Dyami Starks and he is from Duluth, Minnesota.
