Sports briefs for Jan. 27, 2012: Account established in memory of Steve Deyo

Local members of the Colorado football officials association have established a memorial account at First National Bank of the Rockies in memory of Steve Deyo, who died Jan. 17 in Craig.

Deyo graduated from Moffat County High School in 1978 and played football at the University of Northern Colorado.
