Aberdeen’s Stocker listed among football prospects

Aberdeen High School senior Drew Stocker was listed among the state’s top college football prospects as compiled by the Seattle Times in its Sunday edition.

Stocker, listed as a wide receiver (and also erroneously reported as playing for Quincy), was included 83 White Chip prospects. He is being recruited by Nevada, among other schools.

Chehalis quarterback Tanner Gueller, the son of Montesano High School graduate Jason Gueller and Hoquiam High grad Carrie Thompson Gueller, was also selected as a White Chip prospect.

The Times annually publishes a chip list of college prospects, determined by its high school reporter with input from recruiting experts and high school coaches.

Bellevue back Budda Baker, who is considering Washington and UCLA after reneging on an oral commitment to Oregon, was chosen as the state’s only Blue Chip prospect.

Action Express Racing claims Rolex 24

Joao Barbosa from Action Express Racing held off Wayne Taylor Racing’s Max Angelelli after a restart with less than nine minutes remaining to win Sunday’s prestigious Rolex 24 at Daytona.

Barbosa shared driving duties with Christian Fittipaldi and Sebastien Bourdais in the Action Express Racing No. 5 Corvette Daytona Prototype (DP). Bourdais, an IndyCar Series veteran and former Formula One competitor, put the No. 5 car in the lead for good with 1 hr., 5 mins. to go in this 24-hour endurance race on the 3.56-mile road course at Daytona International Speedway.

A full-course caution with 22 minutes left set up the final restart. Barbosa held a sizeable lead before Leh Keen spun around in his No. 22 Porsche 911 GT America, but the caution bunched up the field and made it a three-team battle for the win.
