There were two reasons 16-year-old Maki Kovats moved to Quincy this fall from Spain: to practice his English and to learn how to play American football.

Three months into his experience here, Kovats is improving at both.

“I wanted to learn something new,” said Kovats. “We don’t have football in Spain. I’m learning a lot here. Though, I do like learning football more than learning English.”

Kovats was born and raised in Spain. His mother is a Spanish citizen and his father is American. His father, Ernie Kovats, permanently moved to Spain, where he married Maki’s mom.

Both Feather River College soccer teams were a little off their game Tuesday, Oct. 8, against Shasta College. Feather River’s rankings and standings point to the Eagles being the better program, yet both teams finished their matches with draws.

FRC’s men tied Shasta 1-1 in a match where both goalkeepers truly showed off their abilities. FRC’s women tied with Shasta 3-3. Both of Feather River’s teams still lead the Golden Valley Conference and are undefeated in conference play.

The Feather River men’s team scored right off the bat, sending Shasta a message. Justin Hughes got one in off an assist by Seon Ripley. Shasta evened up the score at the end of the first half.
