So many talent underclassmen were on last season's team that I felt bad leaving any off. Hard to believe that a team that graduated possibly the best player in state last year, Johri Fogerson, may be just as good again this season. Instead of the usual bios I have listed out all the players that I think are worth noticing, there are quite a few...
WR Alonzo Jackson, Sr., O'Dea. 1st team all-league. Averaged almost 19 yards per catch.
TE John Buhrman, Sr., O'Dea.1st team all-league
T Grant Enger, Sr., O'Dea. 1st team all-league. Multiple Pac-10 offers. Could be the best offensive lineman in the state. Opening holes for the many backs that figure to fill the O'Dea backfield.
T Danny Kistler, Sr., O'Dea.1st team all-league. Massive tackle, listed 6'-7" 316 pounds
RB Zach Fogerson, Jr., O'Dea. 2nd team all-league. Averaged 5 yards per carry last season. Has to fill his big brothers shoes. Should be one of the states top players the next two seasons.
WR/CB Chandler Gayton, Sr., O'Dea. 2nd team offense, 1st team defense.
ILB Allen Mooney, Sr., O'Dea. 1st team all-league. Committed to Boise St. Great athlete, physically dominating, and huge hitter.
Just behind O'Dea in the metro league is Eastside catholic. Eastside made a state appearance last season. They bring back many of the major pieces in last year's playoff run...
WR Andrew Carlton, Sr., Eastside Catholic 2nd team all-league. Shared receptions with UW player Vince Taylor last season. Should see majority of the passes this year.
OLB Nick Tengtio, Sr., Eastside Catholic. 1st team all-league. Anchors the defense for Eastside along with Kellen Matsuno (listed below).
OLB Kellen Matsuno, Sr., Eastside Catholic. 1st team all-league. Defense returns 5 first or second team all-league performers.
CB Marion Bactol, Sr., Eastside Catholic 1st team all-league.
Rest of the League
DT Zane Sackett, Sr., Bainbridge 1st team all-league. Lone returning first team performer for Bainbridge.
RB Ross Cobb, Sr., Bainbridge 2nd team all-league. Averaged an amazing 11 yards per carry. Team also returns QB Jordan Wagner
WR Monte Brown, Sr., Bishop Blanchet1st team all-league. Over 500 yards and 17 yards per catch.
QB Spencer Marquiss, Sr., Bishop Blanchet 2nd team all-league. Leader of the only team that has a chance to challenge O'Dea and Eastside at the top of the standings.
ILB Connor O'Boyle, Sr., Seattle Prep 2nd team all-league. Only major playmaker returning for a team that sorely needs more. Seattle Prep will try and improve on the 1-4 league record they posted last season.
DE Leland Stratton, Sr., Lakeside 2nd team all-league. Should be a force the league has to deal with all season. Undersized but plays with big heart.
QB Peter Kimmey, Sr., Lakeside 2nd team all-league. Hopes of Lakeside winning a league game this season rest heavily on Peter's shoulders. Needs to play big if they want to have a good season.
Long list of players for a small conference, but let me know if anyone else comes to mind...
