★ Final Farewell To Mike Lopez Jr.★

It is hard to imagine anyone who followed football in Oregon in the 1980′s not remembering his name. It struck fear into many an opponent and his #19 was called and shouted often at Oregon State where he did some legendary things. He was one of the greatest athletes to every come out of Oregon and was an All American and named Gatorade Player Of The Year. The 1981 Graduate of Aloha was truly special in every way and was known by those closest to him as “Magic Mike”! ♥
