Roos selected to All-Pro team
Former Eastern Washington University offensive tackle Michael Roos of the Tennessee Titans was named to the Associated Press All-Pro team on Friday.
The 6-foot-7, 315-pound Roos is the first EWU player to make the NFL list. He has allowed just one sack in 16 regular-season games, and is part of an offensive line that allowed a NFL- and franchise-record low 12 sacks in 2008.
The Titans play host to the Baltimore Ravens today at 1:30 p.m. on CBS.
Roos has started every game in four seasons with the Titans after earning NCAA Football Championship Subdivision All-America honors and Lineman of the Year accolades as an Eagles senior in 2004. A second-round pick out of Eastern in 2005, Roos has started 64 consecutive regular-season games.

Gonzaga University athletics and IMG, the multimedia rights partner of Bulldogs athletics, have announced a 10-year extension with KHQ-TV and FSN Northwest for broadcast of Gonzaga men’s basketball games and other events and programming through the 2017-18 season.
Subject to West Coast Conference and NCAA agreements, KHQ-TV and FSN will continue to carry every Gonzaga game that is not broadcast under existing or future WCC or other superseding television agreements, guaranteeing that every Gonzaga men’s basketball game will be available to fans in Spokane and throughout the Pacific Northwest for the next 10 years.
In addition to Gonzaga men’s basketball, KHQ and FSN will continue to offer a selection of other Gonzaga sports programming, including select women’s basketball games. KHQ also will continue to offer its Best Doggone Zags Show throughout the season.
Ferris’ Roberts picks Montana
Ferris senior Aaron Roberts is the latest Greater Spokane League player to commit to a college program.
Roberts, the Saxons’ two-way back and all-state receiver, has chosen the University of Montana.
“Montana is where I wanted to go,” Roberts said. “My dad played for (Montana State), but other than that, a lot of my family’s been Grizzlies.”
He attended Montana’s football camp during the summer and coaches offered him a scholarship earlier this month. Roberts will play offense. He had 75 receptions for 1,164 yards and 11 touchdowns for the 2008 Saxons’ State 4A semifinalists.
“Montana was my No. 1 choice, because the program is so good,” he said of the Football Championship Subdivision national finalists. “I’m excited.”
