Northwest Hot 100 final rankings are out

SEATTLE - The Northwest Hot 100 can now be put to bed for the class of 2008. Spanning five states and one province, there are 27 schools represented, from BCS conferences all the way down to NAIA Division-1. The top-20 didn't change much, but there was a new entry into the top-25, and the Oregon State Beavers had the two biggest risers in the group. 2008 Northwest Hot 100 (Final)

Keynan Parker, a 6-foot, 183-pound athlete from St. Thomas More in Burnaby, British Columbia, is the biggest riser in the final rankings, jumping to No. 24 on the list. Parker - who has signed with Oregon State - has top-end speed, and will be a bigger version of James Rodgers for the Beavers. Another Beaver signee, Kahuku (Hawai'i) OG/DT Anthony Siilata, moved up to No. 58. Just three spots below, Federal Way (Wash.) Todd Beamer DT Evan Cook moved his way onto the list due to his strong senior showing, as well as strong looks from defensive-minded coaches like Fresno State's Pat Hill.
