EWU football champs honored

The 2010 Eastern Washington University football team received a big honor on the west side of the state Wednesday night.

The Eagles were named “Sports Story of the Year” for 2011 at the 77th Annual Sports Star of the Year awards show at Benaroya Hall in Seattle.


The event was hosted by the Seattle Sports Commission and presented by Root Sports™.

Other nominees included: the Seattle Seahawks win over the Saints in the NFL playoffs; the Sounders winning their third straight U.S. Open Cup; Hope Solo and Stephanie Cox leading the U.S, team to the World Cup final; and the University of Washington crew winning its third national title in the last five years.
