Fenton and the West rout the East in Shrine game
The Astorian
Led by a couple of Banks
Braves, the West all-star
team dominated the East in
the annual East-West Shrine
football game, held Satur-
day, Aug. 3 at Bulldog Sta-
dium in Baker City.
Seaside’s Travis Fenton
saw action at center for the
West, which snapped a four-
game losing streak to the
East. The East still leads the
all-time series, 33-31-3.
The annual game culmi-
nates a weekend of activi-
ties, and showcases the top
seniors in the state from the
1A to 4A levels for the 2018
season.
The West built a 30-0
lead through three quarters,
taking advantage of six turn-
overs (three interceptions,
three fumbles) by the East
squad.

Spinning plates, unicycle skills developed at North Coast Juggling Camp

ing English and continuing
to perform.
Part of the couple’s
vision continues to be pass-
ing along their knowledge
and skills to the next gener-
ation. Although juggling is
occasionally associated with
circuses and clowns, Bob
Evans equated the activity
to learning an instrument or
practicing martial arts.
“I think of juggling in the
same way,” he said. “The
benefits are very similar,
where it’s working your body
and your brain. It teaches dis-
cipline and daily practice.”
What lies ahead?
Liliana Miller, 12, who
was at the camp with her
brothers Dutch and Greyson,
first became interested in
juggling after watching one
of Evans’ YouTube videos.
“I thought it would be
cool to know how to multi-
task on a unicycle,” said
Miller, who began learn-
ing how to unicycle sev-
eral months ago. Addition-
ally, she said, “juggling
helps with all the sports I
do,” in terms of fine-tuning
mental focus and hand-eye
coordination.
She was excited to see
her skills progress notice-
ably, even after just a cou-
ple days at camp. In addition
to being able to juggle on a
unicycle, Miller also has her
eye on learning how to jug-
gle with a variety of differ-
ent items at one time.
Daniel Albright, 14, a
soon-to-be freshman at Asto-
ria High School, also has
hopes of eventually juggling
with knives and torches. He
appreciates the never-ending
challenge presented by jug-
gling. Once a skill is mas-
tered, there is always a new
one to learn, he said.
During
the
camp,
Albright enjoyed trying dif-
ferent combinations with
a variety of equipment,
including bean bags, hacky
sacks and clubs.
“I like the patterns and
having the sense that I can
do something with three
balls when I’m bored,” he
said.
During the camp, Evans
gave the children daily
opportunities to demon-
strate their developing skills.
Another end goal was put-
ting together a YouTube
video to exhibit the camp-
ers’ progression. See the
video at https://youtu.be/
tlAIOtZepp0.
Evans plans to over-
see a juggling club at Gear-
hart Elementary during the
upcoming school year and
pursue other future oppor-
tunities for young people to
learn and perform not only
juggling, but also a variety
of other skills.

Qi Gong
By KATHERINE LACAZE
For Seaside Signal
There’s a new camp in
town, and one that Gearhart
Elementary School physi-
cal education teacher Bob
Evans hopes to turn into an
annual summer opportunity
for community children.
In mid-July, Evans — fre-
quently referred to as Coach
Bob by his younger camp-
ers — brought his numerous
years of experience teach-
ing and performing juggling
all over the world to Seaside
for the first North Coast Jug-
gling Camp.
The camp, which took
place at the Mary Blake
Playhouse, included two
sessions: The first from July
8 to 12 and the second from
July 15 to 19, with classes
were held from 8 to 10 a.m.
each day.
Although it was rec-
ommended for campers to
attend both sessions, sim-
ply “because it takes awhile
to learn these things,”
Evans said, he only had one
camper the first week, Bran-
don Spalding. By the sec-
ond session, however, eight
other campers joined in.
If the camp eventually
evolves into Evans’ vision
— a full-scale and poten-
tially overnight camp with
opportunities for kids to
learn unicycling, acrobat-
ics and a whole host of cir-

cus-type skills — “it’s kind
of a funny origin” to have
started with a single kid, he
said.
Balls,
balance
and
beyond
Evans, who started teach-
ing at Gearhart Elemen-
tary in fall 2018, delved
into juggling near the end
of college. Both Bob and his
now-wife Trish Evans were
student-athletes at Michigan
Tech University, her partici-
pating in cross country and
skiing and him in basketball.
They were accustomed
to being active and train-
ing several hours per day,
so when their collegiate
sports careers concluded,
they sought a new way to
satisfy their energy and fill
their time. The athletic cou-
ple tried an array of new
hobbies, including ballroom
dancing, hula-hooping, rock
climbing and water polo.
Juggling, unicycling and
acrobatics were the activi-
ties that stuck.
In the following years,
Bob and Trish Evans took
their act on the road, touring
47 states over nine months in
2011; competed on the 11th
season of NBC’s “America’s
Got Talent” in 2016; and
spent several years in South
Korea and Thailand teach-
