EAST WENATCHEE — Several weeks ago, Matt Sligar, the Wenatchee Valley Rams’ starting quarterback, accepted a job in Alaska. When Rams head coach Mickey White learned that he’d be losing his star signal-caller, he was understandably shaken.
“My first thought was, ‘Uh oh,’ ” White said. “My heart hit my toes. With (Sligar), we were looking good. We were putting 40 points per game on the board, and he was throwing the ball all over the place. Then he told me that he wouldn’t be here for the biggest games of our season.”
