  • Dishing it out:Conifer’s Landon Wallace top 10 in nation for assists per game

    When it comes to basketball, selflessness is sometimes hard to come by. For Conifer junior Landon Wallace, it’s second nature.

    A born leader, Wallace has always been a true point guard who plays only with the interest of his teammates in mind. That’s earned him national-level marks in the assist category, where, as of Tuesday, he was ranked eighth in the entire country across all classifications in assists per game, according to Maxpreps.com.

    Just a couple weeks ago, he was ranked sixth. He’s also No. 1 in Colorado.

  • Romberg: Resignations lead to more turnover
  • Rohrer: We need more umpires in the new year

    I have a sort of mancave which looks a bit like a museum. In it are so many things that remind me of people, places and things that have been important to me. At the end of the bar is a collection of autographed baseballs and a little clicker which umpires use to keep track of balls, strikes and outs. Someone asked me what it was, and the question brought back memories of my first job. At about 13 or so I became an umpire, calling games for younger boys.
