With his high school coaching staff looking on, Orrick senior Leslee Eubank (front row, center) finishes up his paperwork as he signs a letter of intent to continue his football career at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph.
Eubank, a two-time, first-team all-state player for the Bearcats, was a vital cog in Orrick’s back-to-back Class 1 State Championship teams. The 6-1, 210-pounder played defensive end and is projected to eventually play middle linebacker for the Griffons. Eubank, the son of Jim Eubank and Cheryl Crow, made 103 tackles this season with a team-leading 15 sacks for minus-106 yards in losses as the Bearcats recorded nine shutouts during a 15-0 campaign.
