MEDFORD, Ore--- This week for Amateur Athlete, NewsWatch 12 Sports looks at the next steps for two local athletes moving on to the college level.
Eagle Point's Austin Strawn is headed to Oregon Tech Track and Field. This former state champion is confident that his competition will not be much more difficult when he moves to the collegiate level.
Hidden Valley's Jeremiah Noga is headed to play receiver at Oregon State. What came as a surprise to many, is that Oregon State head coach Jonathan Smith said in an introductory press conference that Noga may do something early in his career.
Noga says the statement from Smith gave him chills.
In the video above, NewsWatch 12 Sports' Cameron Derby sits down with both to discuss their next steps.
