Atlantic Area Chamber Ambassadors visit the Trojan Sport Locker

News, Sports

July 1st, 2022 by Ric Hanson

(Atlantic, Iowa) – The Atlantic Chamber Ambassadors met with Rolly Parrott and Bryant Rasmussen on Thursday, June 30th, 2022, to learn about the Trojan Sports Locker. The Trojan Sports Locker is located in a storage building next to the Parks & Recreation office. Rolly Parrott, the visionary behind the Locker, shared he started the Locker to help students in the Atlantic School District have the proper equipment to participate in sports, without having to worry about the cost.

Parrott noticed the number of kids who didn’t have the proper shoes or didn’t have a bat or glove when he began coaching Little League. He started collecting donations and storing them at City Hall. He quickly outgrew the space and started using an area at the Armory, where he quickly outgrew that location as well. He partnered with Bryant Rasmussen and Parks & Recreation and began utilizing one of their storage buildings to store donations. 

Any child, parent or coach in the Atlantic School District can use the Locker, free of charge, for anything they may need. Parrott has also partnered with Brown’s Shoe Fit, who provide shoes and equipment at cost when Parrott doesn’t have that particular item on hand.

Parrott and Rasmussen shared they have now outgrown the storage building and are exploring new avenues to make the Locker more attractive and better utilized. The building is old, very run down and has a leaky roof, which, after a light rain, runs water into the building. It’s no longer meeting the needs of the community. Rasmussen shared they have begun conversations with the School District to try and find a location on school grounds that would be better utilized. Rasmussen is currently pricing what the cost would be to build a new storage building. Parrott & Rasmussen hope the conversation continues so they can continue providing this free service and ensuring the students utilizing the program have the best experience they can.

The Trojan Sports Locker is always accepting physical donations as well as monetary. For more information, contact Rolly Parrott on the Trojan Sports Locker Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/groups/377786362378005. The Trojan Sports Locker is located behind the Parks & Recreation Office, located at 1200 Sunnyside Lane.

Big Ten Will Expand to Include USC, UCLA in 2024


July 1st, 2022 by Jim Field

It all happened pretty quickly, but the Big Ten will be the first conference to stretch from coast to coast.  Thursday, the Big Ten voted to add Southern California and UCLA in 2024.

Big Ten Commissioner Kevin Warren said both schools submitted applications for membership and were unanimously approved by the Council of Presidents and Chancellors.

The Pac-12 was apparently caught off-guard by the move as both schools have been members of the conference for nearly 100 years.  They will join the Big Ten in 2024 to allow the current Pac-12 media rights deal to expire.

This will expand the Big Ten to 16 teams and becomes the second big conference shift in the last year as Oklahoma and Texas will be moving from the Big 12 to the Southeastern Conference in 2025.

July 1st, 2022 by Jim Field

Buhr is the 16th player in the 2023 commitment group for the Cyclones.

Big Ten Conference May Add USC, UCLA


June 30th, 2022 by Jim Field

Multiple sources are reporting that Southern Cal and UCLA are in discussions to leave the Pac-12 and join the Big Ten.  The move could be announced in the next day.

Reports are that the school would leave the conference when the current TV deal is up.  That would have them joining the Big Ten as early as 2024.

This would be another big conference move with Oklahoma and Texas set to join the SEC.
