KINGCO As Expected The Deep End Of The Talent Pool

KINGCO As Expected The Deep End Of The Talent Pool

Let there be no doubt.  Football all over the Pac NW is about as good as it gets across the Nation.  No longer do outsiders think of the NW as some far away land of Mountains, Rivers, Hot Springs, and Hippies where football is played at a nominal level.  Too many guys have moved out the past 50 years to allow that.  The waves of talent just keep rolling out and each year the frequency and height of those waves increases.

“Boy Y’all have some terrific players up there,” said one SEC Coach I spoke to recently after he had a chance to compete against Jacob Eason who has made National waves at Georgia ever since he arrived two years ago.

Is it just offense where we shine?  NOPE!

The Coach went on, “In fact, Marcell Frazier is at MISSOU and we had a hard time handling that kid too.  So our team is interested in those sort of talented kids.  Send ’em my way!”

I will.  Coach is referring to Eason from Lake Stevens (WA) who was the Nation’s #1 QB out of HS and has helped Georgia get to #1 as I write this.  Frazier is a D-Line starter at Missouri and hails from David Douglas in Portland.  He was Defensive Player of the Week in the SEC last week.

The reason I bring this up is to convince you players, and point out to you many Coaches across America, that our boys take second place to no one!  Nowhere!  Ok with that out of the way let’s move the NWPR Radar over Seattle to a League tested by time as home to some of the best talent that comes out of our collective pool every year.  If we are among the best talent pools in the country, so too are these athletes out of the KINGCO League.

As the regular season comes to a close I want to shine our NWPR spotlight (Blowtorch) on this league and some of their All-League Players:

      I don’t have enough time nor $$ to cover the KINGCO the way it should be- Maybe I will change the way I do that. I know a couple of Dad/Coaches that I hope will be taking a leading roll in covering the League and its incredible athletes!
