Several story lines going into tonight. Lots of weather related issues so lets start right there. Last night in Forest Grove (OR) the hometown Vikings are having a tough year and took on a tough Crescent Valley Raiders squad. Then came the weather and let's just go ahead and call this the "Hurricane Bowl". Who will capture wilder weather tonight? Get those cameras out.
Other news and Notes- Spotlight Players to Watch
- Tucker Atteberry - Ashland High QB - 1800 yards and 20 TD's going into the night. Great talent. Should get some small school love!
- Skyler Martin - Skyview Big Man - Getting some love with another offer - this one from the Montana Grizzlies- How important is Montana to the Oregon/SW Washington recruiting scene? VERY! Connor Strahm (Sheldon), Koby Eaton (Evergreen), Mike Ralston (Jesuit), Rey Green (Evergreen), James Banks (Sheldon), Samori Toure (Westview), Ryan Johnson (Mountain View -WA) lead a loaded cast of our local kids on the field up in Missoula- a truly great football town!
- Brandon Pili - Could he be the Top Recruit in the State now? It appears he is going to have almost the entire PAC 12 offering him and he has a keen interest in the SEC. The Chase Cota Vandy offer has folks speaking about the SEC and the Pac NW. Can our guys hang and is the PAC NW going to get a more serious look now that Jacob "Skinny" Eason is getting a look? Jacob Sirmon at Bothell (4 Star QB) has the UW QB spot of the future locked up but he has been offered by Alabama. Could this be SEC territory? We shall see!
- Amari Hale - Central Catholic rising star - Pure athlete - Pure Speed. Listed at 6'1"- 160 lbs. Listed as WR - is being used at RB and has had a big year so far. Great basketball player and 2 way threat. Check him out here-
- Trey Adams - Crescent Valley 2 way star. Perhaps the best player in the Region with no offers yet. The 5'10" - 175 pound stud is just a total package at DB and a WR- slot on Offense. The kid is really special. Very similar to Anthony Adams at Newberg. With future 5 Star Talanoa Hufaunga on the CV team he is not expected to do quite as much but WOW can he play! Catch his film right here:
