    By Craig Harper

    EVERGREEN — Evan Price booted a game-winning field goal in his debut as his brother Davis’ replacement last season. And this year he hauled in his first touchdown pass, an 80-yarder no less.

About 30 minutes later, midway through the girls’ race, coaches and officials pulled the competitors off the course due to nearby lightning, and they weren’t able to complete their course.
