A couple of my favorite Yankton athletes are headlined in our column this week. Former Yankton Buck all-around star Bill Whisler, a guy who would be in the running for the best ever to wear a YHS uniform, is about to receive a big honor.

And the former Mount Marty baseball star, Tim Lorang, who became the most valuable player in the 1991 South Dakota State baseball tournament when he led Larry Ryken's Yankton Old Milwaukee Brewers to the state title in a stirring game against a fine Dell Rapids team, is moving back to town.
