Dusty Deines
Dusty grew up on a farm south of WaKeeney, KS and in 7th grade decided he wanted to do sports play-by-play on the radio. After graduating from Trego Community High School in 2001, he obtained a Radio Broadcasting degree from Colby Community College in 2003. He began working as Sports Director at KD Country 94 & Z 96.3 in July of 2003 and has been in the position ever since. Deines was the 2016-17 KSHSAA Oscar Stauffer Sportscaster of the Year and has won numerous awards from the Kansas Association of Broadcasters. When he's not traveling the state covering the area sports teams, he enjoys spending time with his family, attending college and professional sporting events and helping advocate for those with muscle disease, including Dermatomyositis, of which Dusty is a survivor.

The Kansas State High School Activities Association Executive Board met on Wednesday afternoon. Among their topics of discussion was a proposal to delay the start of winter sports competition. The proposal would move the start of winter sports competition in high school to January 15.

Teams and athletes would still be allowed to practice where allowed by local officials through December 22 with a moratorium between December 23 and January 3.  Practice could resume on January 4. The proposal would also reduce the amount of basketball games in the season to 13 and wrestling competition to 12 events.  The proposal also would restrict fan attendance at events from January 15-28.

The motion for the altered winter sports schedule passed in a unanimous 9-0 vote by the Executive Board. With the approval by the Executive Board, this proposal now goes to a vote of the KSHSAA Board of Directors, which is a group of 70 plus members. They will meet on Tuesday, November 24 at 1:00 p.m.

A vote to approve the proposal would move the start of winter sports competition to January 15, while a vote to reject the proposal would allow the winter sports season to proceed as currently scheduled.
