Halliday verbals

Cougfan.com has announced that Ferris quarterback Connor Halliday has made a verbal commitment to Washington State. The story indicated that he had offers from Hawaii, Idaho, Montana and EWU and had attracted interest from Boise State, Arizona State, Oregon State, Washington and Oregon. Halliday was quoted as saying WSU is where he wanted to play.

On another topic, University activities coordinator Ken VanSickle’s dad, Bud, died last week at age 81. They had a gathering and celebration for him at U-Hi on Saturday.

 


I’ve known Ken since he was a young pup hanging around the old University High field as a batboy, the family house just across the street. He played for the Titans before becoming a teacher and coach there and his dad was always present rooting on the teams so we swapped opinions on numerous occasions over the years.

He was an ardent supporter of his childrens’ teams, a genuinely nice person and the type of parent coaches love to have around. He was a founder of the school booster club and Senior All Nighter and benefactor to Titan softball teams when Ken Jr. was coach and started the team on its 10-year run of state tournament appearances. Bud will be missed.
