Shober, a linebacker on the Wildcats football team, is one of 10 boys athletes from the state of Washington to be a finalist for the Heisman Memorial Trophy. One senior boy athlete and girl athlete from each state and the District of Columbia will be selected on Friday, Nov. 4 as state winners and 12 national finalists will be picked soon after.
