PENDLETON, Ore. — A legendary Oregon high school football coach was immortalized Saturday night in Pendleton.

An eight-foot, 1500-pound bronze statue of former Pendleton High School coach Don Requa was unveiled at Brownsville Park.

Requa was the first Oregon high school football coach to win more than 300 game. He also won 24 conference championships and made 25 state playoff appearances.

Requa was inducted into the National High School Hall of Fame in 1985 and the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame in 1992.

The Pendleton Linebacker’s Club raised money to build the statue.

The statue was built by bronze sculptor Rip Caswell, who’s from Troutdale.
