Prep roundup - week 3

Edmonds-Woodway and Jackson combined for over 1000 yards of total offense in a real gunfight at Edmonds Stadium Friday night. Timberline's Jonathan Stewart set a single-game rushing mark, and he's only a 10th-grader. Royal tops Highland by 83. This weekend was one where some high school teams chose to be offensive. VERY offensive. Here are some takes from around the area, as well as the state's top prep performers from week three.

Chris Fetters ( - Saw two halves of two games. In the first one, Edmonds-Woodway won a high-scoring affair, 54-35 over Jackson. Kyle Trew, Glenn Gallagher and Josh Waite combined for 461 yards rushing. Jackson's QB, Jason Morris, threw for 360 yards and also ran for a bunch more. Washington commit Craig Chambers just glides out there on the field. It doesn't look like he's moving very fast, but when he needs to kick it up a notch he has that extra gear. E-W's Casey Tyler is a huge target at 6-7 and 270 pounds, and he runs well after the catch.

In the second game, Kamiak took care of business early over Meadowdale, eventually coming away with a 38-14 win, despite not having Derrick Bradley available. The Washington commit sat out with a deep ankle bruise. Junior QB Gary Rogers and senior receiver Whitney Wilson picked up the slack for Bradley's absence, and Levon Rector's 121 yards on the ground provided all the rush presence the Knights needed. While Rogers was incredibly sharp all night long, the game belonged to Wilson. He had two touchdown receptions, including one highlight grab Lynn Swann would have been proud of. He also had a very nice play on the ball as a cornerback, skying high for a pick. The Knights' offensive line, including Bobby Dockter, Sam Himmelman and Mark McClure, showed that their nickname, 'The 'Dozers', is apropos. Dockter, in particular, is a total road-grader.

Joe Razore - In his first game of the season, John-Markus Pinard made his presence felt for the Bellevue Wolverines. Pinard (6-5, 235) caught one TD pass, had an interception, a sack, and recovered an onside kick as the Wolverines took care of Issaquah 34-7. The Bellevue defense looked really strong against a talented Issaquah backfield. Jeff Dicks and Lee Driftmier made it tough for Issaquah to get anything going as the duo seemed to stuff everything between the tight ends. JR Hasty, only a sophomore, had a couple of scores as well from the Bellevue backfield. He'll be a name to look for in the future. Next week, the Wolverines face Skyline in what looks to be one of the best match-ups of the year.

Bill Nance (TheFinalScore.TV) - I once again was at the Oak Harbor game, this week at Arlington. I was anxious to see Arlington's qb, 6' 5", 200-pound Ben Bourasaw. He was a tight end last year and I had heard good things about him. Both teams came in 2-0. Oak Harbor won it 49-21. Their quarterback, Lenny Serfling, threw for 3 TDs and had touchdown runs of 34 and 38 yards. Bourasaw threw one touchdown pass and was under pressure all night. Oak Harbor has a defensive tackle, Chad Asmus, who can't be blocked. The Arlington coach even said to us media guys afterwards "that number-61, we couldn't block him." Nobody else has been able to either coach. Arlington's Brenton Bodewig had one of the best "up and overs" I have ever seen. From the one yard line he got way up over the pile and flipped into the end zone. He also caught the touchdown pass from Bourasaw on a quick slant where he hit the burners and went 65 yards untouched. Kid has some wheels and hops.

Ron Siegel - The Mariner Marauders shot down the high-flying Mountlake Terrace Hawks 24-6 on Friday night. They completely shut down the Hawks' passing attack with 8 interceptions, and the Marauders countered with a near-perfect wing-t offense. Ken Mishima (5-7, 145-pound junior) had four interceptions, caught a 16-yard pass for a touchdown and kicked a field goal and three extra points. Tuiasosopo is a familiar name to all football fans in the Northwest, and Trenton Tuiasosopo, a linebacker (6-2, 220-pound junior) had two sacks for Mariner. The Hawks, who got off to a 2-0 start for the first time in decades, had one bright spot. Josh Cardin ran back a kickoff 85 yards for a touchdown.

Todd Milles (Tacoma News Tribune) - I was at the Lakes-Peninsula game, and contest full of NCAA Div. I recruits. As expected, Akeem Anthony (186 rushing yards, two TDs) and Anthony Russo (three interceptions, 66-yard game-clinching pass reception) were brilliant, but let me tell you about Peninsula's Chris Perez, who did not have the same supporting cast. Perez is "big" speed back, gaining 172 yards on 26 carries, playing the entire second half on a sore right kneecap. Peninsula ran him ragged, Lakes punished him and Perez still showed a lot of toughness by taking the ball. By the end of the game, he had three runs of 10 or more yards late in the fourth quarter before fumbling deep in Lakes' territory.

I don't know if Perez is a college tailback, but he can play cover cornerback, maybe even safety. He had the speed to corral Anthony and Russo, at times, and Peninsula coach Ross Filkins said he has never seen a guy improve more in one summer than Perez. As a freshman, Perez was known as "Erkel" from the TV show because he was so slight; now he is 6-0, 190 pounds. Good football player.
