PENDLETON, Ore. (AP) - A new bronze statue honoring Pendleton High School football coach, Don Requa, has been unveiled at Brownfield Park.

The East Oregonian reports (https://bit.ly/1M6rUEa ) the several dozen people who attended Saturday’s ceremony commemorating the legendary coach were greeted with the Buckaroo fight song performed by the high school band.

Requa coached the Bucks for 36 years and won over 300 games, making him the winningest coach in Oregon history when he retired in 1986. He died the following year.

The Linebacker’s Club raised $102,000 for the nearly 8-foot statue. The remaining funds will go toward a scholarship fund, which is awarded to a senior high school football player each year.

Included with the statue is electric lighting and two plaques, one including a list of donors and the other a biography.
