Roseburg football team looks to Cottage Grove to establish roster

Modified: Wednesday, Mar 15th, 2017

The Roseburg Valley Thunder football team is an opportunity for football athletes to play at the semi-pro level during the winter and summer. With less daylight during the winter, the team’s roster dwindled.

“People weren’t getting off of work until after it was dark, so a lot of them weren’t able to play,” said Rick Winkley. The team had about 40 players at one point, but as winter came, the Thunder were playing with only 14 players.

To buff up the roster, Winkley has taken to Cottage Grove, where he hopes to garner interest and participation from CG football players.
