Nike Changing Pro Bowl Uniforms

Nike is drastically changing the look of the NFL's Pro Bowl uniforms. The shoe and apparel giant is doing away with the traditional blue and red look worn by the NFC and AFC for years. In its place will be bright orange- and neon yellow-trimmed uniforms, the latter similar to that of the Oregon Ducks. The change comes as the league also alters the Pro Bowl format from conference vs. conference to rosters constructed through a draft-lottery. The two leading vote-getters will serve as captains that pick teams with the help of Hall of Famers Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders and two NFL.com fantasy football champions. The Pro Bowl is set for January 26th at Hawaii's Aloha Stadium.

The KLPW Radio Athlete of the Week is Union Senior Bethany Coons. Bethany finished the basketball season at Union averaging 11 points and eight assists per game. Coach Dusty Weiskopf says Bethany is good at handling the basketball and teams would find it difficult to press Union when Bethany was in the game because of her lateral movement. When combining her scoring and assist averages, Bethany was contributing about 25 points per game.

On March 24, 2015, Lufthansa Airlines pilot Andreas Lubitz steered a planeful of passengers into the French Alps, killing 150 people in a grisly act of murder/suicide.

The logical first question the world is asking is why? We ask this not only to make some sort of rational sense out of the irrational act, but also so that we can try to prevent something like it from happening again.
