NEW ORLEANS â€” Former Blackfoot High School and Idaho State tight end Josh Hill caught his first career NFL touchdown pass Sunday afternoon against the San Francisco 49ers in New Orleans.
Hill hauled in a 3-yard touchdown pass from Drew Brees with 49 seconds left in the first quarter.
POCATELLO â€“ Fourth and short, a situation every offensive player wants to succeed in.
Facing a fourth and three from the West Side 12 yard line, the Cougars needed to convert on a short yardage play to continue the drive and possibly clinch a berth in next weekâ€™s 2A state title game.
But Cougars senior running back Connor Montgomeryâ€™s 35th carry of the game came up one yard short and West Side took over on downs.
POCATELLO â€” Heading into Saturday's 3A state semifinal rematch with Gooding, the Shelley Russets defense had not allowed an opponent to score a single point in the playoffs.
BLACKFOOTâ€” The Zumbathon fundraiser for BHS senior captain cheerleader Margie Catindig raised upwards of $600 to go towards her trip to New York City to perform in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
"I love that our community can come together and for being able to help me be able to achieve something so exciting," said Catindig.
Cheerleading coach Mindi Loosli came up with the idea of a Zumbathon.
