Thompson Earns Honors

Former Siuslaw High School right-hander Jake Thompson earned another honor earlier this month when he was selected to receive the American Legion Oregon Department Baseball Scholarship.  Tim Cooksey, the Oregon Chairman for legion ball said Thompson was a “fantastic team player”, but earned the honor through his “scholarly and community achievements”.  He’s now eligible for possible regional and national scholarships through the organization.  Thompson is attending Oregon State University.
