Here's some leftover tidbits from Wednesday's Wenatchee football practice with members of the U.S. Marine Corps. All in all, it seemed to be an event that both the players and coaches alike found to be challenging and rewarding.

  • Wenatchee rising senior running back Kyle West was the "leak" that tipped off several members of the team that the Marines were coming to practice. West is already planning to enter the Corps after graduation in 2013.

  • Rising senior receiver Matt Blevins got some guff from the instructors early on in the day for his pink receiving gloves, but performed well over the course of the day, including an impressive time in the Manuever Under Fire obstacle course.

  • Coaches Dave Jagla and Brandon Harle, who along with Nigel Hunter made the trip that started the process of getting the Marines to town, have longstanding love affairs with the military. Several of Harle's close friends from childhood have served in the Corps, and Hunter's grandfather was a Marine during World War II. Hunter noted that on their trip, he and his fellow educators had the good fortune of seeing Marine recruits after returning from The Crucible, the 54-hour field exercise at the end of training.

  • One of the feel-good moments of the day came when Markus Stoll, the final Panther to go through the obstacle course, crossed the line with the entire Wenatchee roster cheering him on every step of the way.
