MARSHFIELD – The Columbus boys defeated football co-op partners, Spencer, during a Jan. 24 match up at Columbus High School.

He has a three-sport athlete and a member of the first Spencer-Columbus co-op football team. The scholarship is awarded to graduating seniors and students wanting to attend Columbus Catholic Schools.
