  • Football business ends later for...

    Even if Brighton High School makes it through to the state 4A title football game in December, defensive lineman Ian Helwick can’t put away the football gear.

    The 6-foot-1-inch, 225-pound junior defensive lineman-to-be is one of 500 players tabbed to be part of the U.S. Army National Combine in San Antonio, Texas. It runs for three days, starting Jan. 5.

    Helwick was chosen because of performance at Football University, a national camp that he’s attended since he was in seventh grade.

  • Local chiropractor crosses one...

    Because of contractual arrangements and sponsorships, this story cannot include the name of the event that Brighton chiropractor Marcus Gall will be attending later this summer.

    But we can tell you it happens once every four years (this year, it’s in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), and it makes a lot of people’s bucket lists to just be able to attend.

  • Sainz wants better result this...

    Brighton High School student Eric Sainz has been out of town for a few days.

    Not to worry, though. He’s been in what will be a 20-day training session in Las Vegas, Nev., part of the preparation for his second professional Brazilian Jiu-Jitzu fight, part of the Fight to Win Pro 7 card July 15.

    It’s at the National Western Complex in Denver, and he’ll face Dane Millerhaas.

  • MMA beckons Sinn again

    Brighton’s Shannon Sinn returns to the MMA ring June 25 when she takes on Jenny Liou in a pro 125-pound fight in Denver. 

    Sinn’s next fight is 1 p.m., June 25, at The Grizzly Rose in Denver.

    Sinn, a Brighton High School Hall of Famer, recently devoted herself to being a full-time fighter, and that decision is already paying off but with unexpected consequences. 

  • Soccer playoff seeds draw mixed...
