Although the start of spring practice is still more than 2 months away for local high school football players, Skyview QB Kieran McDonagh is already quite busy tossing the football around.
The 2010 4A GSHL Coaches 1st Team All-Leauge QB was invited to play alongside some of the top high school football players from the state of Oregon at the Barton 7on camp down at Oregon State University last month.
Dirk Knudsen, editor of both WashingtonPreps.com and OregonPreps.com is currently running a series called “Chasing the Dream” which features the top class of 2012 talent in both states. After a group of the Oregon kids decided to form Team Oregon, Knudsen suggested they invite McDonagh to join their team and change the name to Team Oregon: Plus One.
“That team is loaded with stars,” said Knudsen. “McDonagh went down a few weeks ago to Oregon State and worked out with them and is now a regular.”
The team includes a pair of Jesuit stand outs in ATH Nicholas Rothstein (5′11″ 200) and WR Adam Wintherling (6′4″ 190) and Lake Oswego QB Alex Matthews (6′3″ 195) to name a few.
