Local semi-pro footballteam changes name

September 28, 2007 12:00 am

The Siskiyou Savages semi-pro football team has recently changed its name. The team, which will begin its season next spring, will now be called the South Coast Storm. The team management felt a name more appropriate to the area was needed. The Storm will still play in the Oregon Football League and hope to play most of their home games at Del Norte High School. Anyone interested in trying out for the team can contact head coach Dick Trone at 954-0005, or Allen Morris at 954-0944. Practice will start in January, with games starting the end of March.
