1974 - Pyramid Lake opens to the public [story]


nicklongshore1[KHTS] – A former Canyon High football star who went on to play at Brigham Young University succumbed Wednesday to injuries sustained in an ATV accident last week. He was 32.

Nick Longshore sustained injuries last Wednesday in an ATV accident in Idaho Falls, Idaho. He was in critical condition in the ICU at Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center on Wednesday.

Longshore broke 10 ribs and suffered an “open book” fracture of his pelvis in the crash, according to a website that was established to help the family pay for the costs of medical treatment.

Longshore was just about to honor the memory of the 1-year anniversary of his stillborn child. He had been fighting for his life since the crash.

“Nick was just a humble, gentle giant, who everybody loved,” said longtime family friend Greg Crow. “He was just that type of young man, an Eagle Scout and the boy next door, and you’d never hear anyone say anything negative about him.”

Nick was active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and served a church mission in the Philippines from 2000-02.

He was offered a scholarship to play football at California State Northridge, went on his mission, and by the time he returned, the football program at the school had been eliminated.

Instead, Nick Longshore played at College of the Canyons and then earned a spot on the roster at Brigham Young University.

nicklongshore2“If you have a brother, you want him to be Nick Longshore. If you have a son, you want him to be Nick Longshore. If you have a friend you want him to be Nick Longshore,” Crow said. “He was the type of person that everybody loved.”

Nick Longshore is the son of Todd Russell Wells Longshore, who died at age 49 in 2006.

Todd Longshore was a city of Santa Clarita parks commissioner, and also has a park in Canyon Country named after him.

Nick is the brother of Nate Longshore, who played quarterback for Cal, and Ben Longshore, who played quarterback at College of the Canyons and Utah State.

He also is survived by his sister, Courtney, and his mother, DeAnn.

The money is to support Nick’s wife, Caroline, who is pregnant with the couple’s second child.

Nick and Caroline were residing in the Salt Lake City suburb of West Haven at the time of the crash.

There has not yet been word on the memorial plans.

    I first met Nick when my son Scott Jr played his first season of T-ball thru Parks & rec. in Canyon Country. He was 6years old.
    Big Nick was the head couch, and I was his assistant. I co-couched three teams with Nick & his dad. I will miss Nick.
    My God bless him & his family, Scott Sr.
