Walters to Interview for Possible Role on Contender
Zach "Jungle Boy" Walters is going to Chicago to interview for a role in the "Contender" reality TV show.  Walters will be driving to the Windy City this weekend with fellow boxer Andy "Kaos" Kolle to do a one hour taped interview.

"The cool thing about all this is one of the contacts for the show called us," said Walters.  "The producers had received a lot of e-mails from fans recommending me for the next showing of "Contender", so after looking into my boxing history and checking out my website they decided to give us a call and offer us an opportunity to try out for the show."

If the producers of the show are still interested after conducting the interview, Walters will do a sparring session/tryout in December.  Being selected would be another big opportunity for the former Fergus Falls native to further promote his boxing career.  Exposure in the sport of boxing is priceless and an appearance on "Contender" could lead to some other opportunities.

In his most recent fight, a defense of his Minnesota State title on the one year anniversary (September 11) of his winning it, Walters won a unanimous decision in his six round bout with Boyde Davis.  "Davis challenged me in ways I hadnít been challenged before," said Walters. "He had awkward, taunting movement and made crazy faces at me. I was able to hurt him several times during the fight, but he kept clinching so it was hard to finish him off. In the 6th and final round I almost dropped him with body shots."

To retain his title, Walters needs to have one title defense in a year.  A crowd of 2,000 loyal "Jungle Boy" fans made for quite a noisy night at the DECC Auditorium in Duluth.

With the fall high school playoffs getting underway, remember to check out www.statetourney.com for all the brackets and results for your favorite sports and teams.  Also, if you haven't been following the QRF rankings yet, log on to www.minnesotascores.com and start doing it!  Ryan Weinzierl operates the site.  Each game played receives a point value based on the outcome of the game.  All of these scores are averaged for a specific team and then ranked against all the other teams in their Class. The results of the first two years of the QRF rating system have been impressive.  You can research it for yourself at their website.  They have their own top 10 rankings in each class based on this system.  This week, Hillcrest is in at number eight in 9-man, Pelican Rapids is seventh in 2A and Moorhead is tenth in 5A.

Bethel University junior strong safety Kirby Carr, a 2003 graduate of Fergus Falls High School managed what many believe to be a rare score when he returned a blocked PAT attempt for two points at a critical time in Bethel's 30-13 win over St. Thomas. After St. Thomas scored to get within 21-13, Carr's return made it a 23-13 and a two-possession game. To go with his score, Carr also performed impressively for the defense as he tallied 11 tackles in the win for Bethel.  For his efforts Carr was named the Special Teams Player of the Week in the MIAC and was also named to the D3.com team of the week.

Carr has a team high 61 tackles, has recorded a sack and has two interceptions.  Brandon Carr has also picked off two passes and is second to his brother in tackles with 49.  Former Hillcrest and MSCTC receiver Luke Hansen is having a good start to the season.  He is the second leading receiver with nine catches for 132 yards and a TD.  His 14.7 yards per catch is second on the team.  He also has returned 8 kicks for 220 yards, an average of 27.5 yards per return.  Hillcrest grad Steve Moline has scored a pair of touchdowns from his fullback spot, rushing for 22 yards on 8 carries, and Jared Bangs, an FFHS graduate, has carried the ball 20 times for 59 yards.

Jake Stroud, a 2005 graduate of Hillcrest Lutheran Academy, is now playing at St. Olaf.  Stroud has 7 carries for 61 yards in limited action. 

Concordia senior Ben Aakre from Underwood is third on the Cobbers in tackles and has intercepted two passes while forcing a fumble so far this season.  Another Underwood grad, Mitch Jeppesen, is a safety at MSUM.  Jeppesen has intercepted three passes and returned them 66 yards, one for a touchdown.  He also has returned 21 kickoffs for 377 yards and has eleven punt returns for 91 yards.  He is second on the team with 30.5 tackles.

Liz Glesne from Underwood is a sophomore at Bethel College where she is second in the MIAC in killper game with 4.37.  She has a total of 118 kills this season.

Junior Ryan Miller scored a pair of goals and assisted on a third as Bemidji State University beat Minnesota State, Mankato 7-3 on Saturday, completeing a sweep of the Mavericks.  Miller also scored a goal against Minnesota, Duluth the previous week as the Beavers also swept the Bulldogs.  BSU is off to a 4-0 start and Miller is a plus-4 on the ice with 3 goals and 1 assist for four points.
