  • Cascade Christian football player David Sellers signed with NCAA Division II Western Oregon on Monday during a ceremony at the school.
    Sellers made the offensive and defensive Class 3A all-state first team as a tight end and defensive end. He also received offers from Humboldt State, George Fox University and Missouri Valley College and walk-on opportunities with schools including Montana and Northern Colorado.
    The Challengers' Tanner Parker also signed during the ceremony, with Southern Oregon's football team. His commitment was announced last week.
    ASHLAND — Eric Thompson made sure the Southern Oregon men's basketball team got its stretch run off to a strong start over the weekend. On Monday, he was the consensus choice to receive his fifth Cascade Conference Red Lion player of the week award.
    The 6-foot-7 junior forward scored 38 points Friday against 19th-ranked Northwest University in the NAIA Division II Game of the Week, as the 18th-ranked Raiders (21-6 overall) won 92-79 behind the most efficient outing of his career. Thompson went 15-for-22 from the field, including 3-for-7 on 3-pointers, and scored on five straight possessions down the stretch to hold off the Eagles.
    He posted his fifth double-double of the season the next night, going for 14 points and 10 rebounds in SOU's 75-59 win over Evergreen.
    In conference play, Thompson ranks second in points per game (21.3), fourth in rebounds per game (8.2), third in 3-pointers made per game (2.7), fourth in 3-point percentage (43.0), 12th in free-throw percentage (75.7) and 16th in field-goal percentage (51.4).
    Including a pair of 38-point games, he's hit the 25-point mark 10 times this season.
    Thompson has jumped from 13th to second on SOU's career scoring list since the beginning of the season and his 1,730 points are 190 off all-time leader Shea Washington's mark. He was recently named an academic all-district performer.
    With a conference record of 10-5, the Raiders are in second place going into Saturday's game at Oregon Tech (15-12, 8-7).
