MONMOUTH — Jason Slowey's trophy case is filling up quickly as the offensive lineman from Medford added a D2football.com All-American honorable mention award to his list of honors for this season.
This latest award gives the 2011 Great Northwest Athletic Conference Offensive Lineman of the Year his third All-American honor this year. The North Medford graduate was also named a first team All-American by the Beyond Sports Network and was an honorable mention selection on the Don Hansen All-American squad.
Slowey was a unanimous first-team all-conference selection. He was also named to four preseason All-American teams, including the D2football.com team and the Lindy's Sports Magazine team.
This season, he paved the way for the Wolves to rush for more than 165 yards in five games and protected the quarterback's blind side all season.
Lately, it seems, the Southern Oregon Spartans amateur hockey team can do no wrong.
Even after the Vancouver Victory jetted out to a 4-0 lead and took a 5-2 advantage by the end of the period, the Spartans answered with seven-straight goals in a 9-5 win Sunday at The RRRink, their 14th straight victory.
Mike Leskun tallied two goals and two assists for the Spartans (29-7 NORPAC), who have not lost since Nov. 26. Tim Talty added three assists.
The Spartans outshot the Victory, 56-21.
Vancouver received a hat trick from Joe Bordak.
Vancouver 5 0 0 — 5
Southern Oregon 2 4 3 — 9
