LA GRANDE, Ore. - Eastern Oregon University has announced the creation of the Dylan Steigers Memorial Scholarship.
The scholarship will be awarded to a football player at EOU in memory of Steigers, a Missoula native who died Sunday of a head injury suffered during the team's spring game on Saturday.
Athletics director Rob Cashell says the team has seen an outpouring of support, locally, regionally and nationally from family and friends of Steigers, as well as friends and alumni of EOU who want a way to help recognize and honor Steigers.
Cashell says the proceeds from this weekend's football program silent auction also will be dedicated to the fund.
Donations should be directed to: Eastern Oregon University Foundation, One University Blvd., La Grande, Ore., 97850 or can be made online at www.eou.edu/foundation. Indicate on the check or online that the gift is for the Dylan Steigers Memorial Scholarship.
