It appears that two-time state heavy- weight wrestling champion Roger “Bronc” McCovey has made his decision on the college he’ll attend.

The Idaho school, located near Spokane, Wash., came in second this year at the National Junior College Athletic Association national wrestling tournament.
Boulby said the coaching staff plans to visit Bronc in Crescent City and personally hand him the documents to sign with the school today.
McCovey visited the campus two weeks ago and said he liked what he saw.
