Gus Ramsden exercises the run option during the East-
West All Star football game at Baker City on August 3.
Coy Aschenbrenner saves a touchdown, tackling the
West’s ball carrier ten yards from the goal line.
Tyler Homan breaks free from a West tackler during a
return in the fi rst quarter.
On the play, the West punter bobbled the snap and
had the kick blocked in the end zone. The West recov-
ered the ball but was tackled in the end zone for the
two points.
Following the ensuing kickoff the East needed just
four plays to score again.
Gus Ramsden found Tanner Hamilton from three
yards out to cut the defi cit to 30-10.
Vandehey then closed the door on the East, con-
necting with Markham and Joey Tripp for the fi nal
two scores.
Baker’s Justin Miller recovered a West fumble in
the fourth quarter from his defensive secondary slot.
Miller also could have had an interception on the
opening pass play of the game, but had the ball fall
through his hands.

Wallowa County Chieftain
allowa County’s three East-West Shrine
game all-stars gave a good accounting of
themselves despite a losing effort to a bet-
ter-organized west-side team. Gus Ramsden
of Wallowa quarterbacked the East squad
for much of the game, tossing a short pass to Tanner
Hamilton of Vale for the East’s only touchdown of the
game early in the 4th quarter. Ramsden also played
defense late in the 4th quarter, covering a speedy
Blake Markham of Banks, who was the high scorer
of the game. Joseph Charter School speedster Tyler
Homan returned the game kickoff and fi rst punt for
short gains. Coy Aschenbrenner of Enterprise was out-
standing on defense, covering the fi eld and making an
impressive, single-handed touchdown-saving tackle in
the third quarter.
The West took advantage of six East turnovers Sat-
urday to break a four-game losing streak at the annual
East-West Shrine All-Star Football Game at Bulldog
Memorial Stadium.
The West had three interceptions and recovered
three fumbles on the way to a 43- 10 win. The East
still leads the overall series 33-31-3.
The West totaled 456 yards, 319 on the arm of quar-
terback Hayden Vandehey. He fi nished 20-of-34 with
four touchdowns.
Vandehey’s favorite target was Blake Markham,

last week. The Chieftain
apologizes for the error.
There’s so many fun
things to do, and such a short
time to do it.
Do enjoy a dip in the
