This is the best game of the very few being played Thursday night. Kentwood is coming off of a bad loss to Auburn last weekend and should be looking rebound again the Bears.
CV has been impressive early. LC has done nothing but match the high expectations that were put on them. It seems as if every week for LC has been tough, could this be the week they crack?
Olympia vs. Wilson, 7pm, Wilson
Olympia has had one of the stingiest defenses in the state so far this season. They face off againsta team with talent and speed in Wilson. Wilson is lead by Desmond Trufant, brother of Seahawk Marcus Trufant.
Two weeks after five games were played at Qwest Field, the home of the Seattle Seahawks will host a four-game schedule on Saturday, including an intriguing interstate matchup.
Game 1: Shorewood vs, Kamiak
Game 2: Eastlake vs. Woodinville
Game 3: Bothell vs. Redmond
Game 4: Bellevue vs. San Ramon California
The feature game of the night will be Bellevue, the event host, welcoming Bay Area program CalHigh of San Ramon. The Wolverines have had two memorable wins against Golden State foes at Qwest Field, snapping Concord De La Salle's 151-game winning streak and then toppling Long Beach Poly a year later. While CalHigh isn't in the same echelon of De La Salle or Poly, they're still a rising program, ranked No. 9 in Northern California by GoldenStatePreps.com, Scout's California HS site. Meanwhile, Bellevue is ranked No. 4 in Washington.
The Wolverines are led by three-star safety Jamal Atafou and running back Peter Nguyen. Up front, Hank Thayer, a 2010 lineman, is the next in line at the same school that produced David DeCastro and Steve Schilling.
CalHigh is led by elite 2010 prospect Reggie Davis, a versatile two-way threat, who plays receiver and safety. Davis could be hobbled, though, by a foot injury. In the backfield, the Grizzlies are paced by Leroy Green.
These are just a few of the many great games in the state this weekend. I'll be at the Federal Way game Friday night. Saturday I will be blogging and posting updates from The Best in West Football Classic at Qwest. Once again I appreciate any updates with results and summaries on the message boards…
