Wrestlers go to

“All the guys who aren’t in football right now will be there,’’ Dick said.
Hunter Nixon (160 or 170), Keegan Clayton (160), Billy Grothe (132), Troy Graves (126), Scott Phillips (138) and John Choy (152) have been looking good so far in the preseason, Dick said.

Peterson listed as
probable for Vikings
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is listed as probable to play at Seattle, despite his absence from the final full practice of the week.
The Vikings wanted to give the sprained left ankle that has bothered Peterson for the last month some extra rest, so he worked in the pool and received treatment instead of taking the field Friday. But coach Leslie Frazier said the move was merely precautionary.

Glencoe duo makes strong introduction
The last time Nate Melton and Claytin Beaver played together, they left the field losers of a season-ending 12-5 Class A state quarterfinal.
On Friday, each of them in Enid Majors blue instead of Glencoe red, and things went closer to plan.
