The Weekly Roundup: What you'll learn in this week's Review
Happy Friday! As we near the end of another busy week, take a look at just a few of the things you might learn in the Sept. 5 edition of the Review:
— Between 2011 and 2018, participation numbers have declined by at least 27% in each league sport that uses city fields — except soccer, which saw an 11% increase.
— Over the course of a full season, high school football players generally experience less than 90 minutes of full-speed contact during games. That same amount of contact can take place in just a week of practices.
— Oregon's mandatory seat belt law wouldn't exist without Dr. John Tongue.
— Lakeridge's new football coach, Forrest Sherman, played college ball at Lewis & Clark College — which at the time was led by former Lakeridge coach Tom Smythe.
— Before taking a constitutional law class at Lake Oswego High School, Caroline Lindsay — a 2009 graduate who now clerks for United State Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas — wanted to be an actress.
