From the Bleachers – With Ron Mosher


The Fall River High School cheerleaders will hold their annual kid’s cheer camp September 20-24 at the bleachers at Fall River Jr/Sr high school.

The camp will be divided into two groups – Li’l Pups for ages 3-6 and Bullpups for ages 7-12, and both groups will meet daily from 4pm – 5:30pm.

Participants are encouraged to bring a full water bottle and wear a T-Shirt, shorts and tennis shoes. Those with long hair are encouraged to wear their hair up. During the camp they will be learning a cheer dance and so much more!

Cost is $30 per child, and shirts and snacks will be provided. Registration must be completed by this Friday (Sept. 17).

The youngsters will conclude the camp by performing a routine at the Fall River Bulldog football game on September 24.

About Ron, from the man himself:

Ron Mosher

I began doing sports coverage since the days of Dennis Smith at the Intermountain News in Burney in the mid 1960s through the mid 1970s. I took a long break after moving to the Bay Area, where I had an eight year stint with the San Francisco Giants front office as accounting and data processing manager – so my life has pretty much revolved around balls – footballs, basketballs, soccer balls, volleyballs, softballs, baseballs and the kids who toss ’em, catch ’em and excel in sports.

I returned to the Intermountain area in the 1990s and restarted my sports life in the area by working for Donna and Walt Caldwell and their Mountain Echo newspaper, retiring a few years ago after 20-plus years chasing kids all over northern California covering their antics in playing games. 

I have a love for all three of the Intermountain area schools, having attended Big Valley elementary through fourth grade, graduating from Burney elementary and then becoming a 4-year Fall River Bulldog, graduating in 1961… yep, I’m an old guy.

But, I’m an old guy who’s glad to be returning to the keyboard in following Intermountain Area sports and the kids who play ’em… remember: Find something round… you’ll have a ball!
