One of the Nation’s top gunslingers needs someone to snare his rockets, right? Lake Stevens Junior quarterback Jacob ‘Skinny’ Eason, a Georgia commit has two stalwart sticky fingered receivers to grab his missiles in Senior Tevin Gray and Junior Riley Krenz.
Gray burst on to the gridiron seen two seasons ago when he caught 35 balls for 552 yards and ran the pigskin 13 times for 106 yards totaling 3 touchdowns as a Sophomore. Last fall
the lightning bolt ended up garnering 61 balls good for 838 yards and 11 touchdowns as a Junior. Tevin really lit up the radar screen when he went ballistic in the Wesco 4A
Championship game grabbing 12 balls for 203 yards and 4 scores in the Vikings 53-49 win over Edmonds-Woodway.
The rock solid 5’11” 200 pound Senior rocket ship was a 2nd team All-Wesco receiver and Honorable-Mention safety last season for the Lake. The young brute is also a force on the Track for the
Viks as well. Gray finished 8th at the state 4A meet in the Javein with a personal best toss of 171’7″. The talented Viking made it to regionals in the shot put also, recording a personal mark of 51′.
Tevin Gray is off to great start this season, he has snatched 13 balls for 201 yards and a touchdown through 2 battles.
Riley Krenz is a multi-talented gridiron guru. Last season as a super Sophomore Krenz caught 39 passes for 638 yards and recorded 3 total touchdowns for Lake Stevens. Riley was a 1st
team all-league selection at tight end and a 2nd team pick at free safety. He stole 3 interceptions and garnered 86 total tackles from his safety slot. This year the sure handed 5’11” 190 pound junior is off to a brilliant start to his campaign. Riley has already caught 19 footballs for 204 yards and 3 scores through 2 contests this year.
The Lake Stevens boys will try to rebound from a tough 40-28 loss to 3A powerhouse Marysville-Pilchuck. The Vikings will travel to Mount Vernon to do battle with the Bulldogs on Friday Night.
Skinny’s Crew is for real folks and we will be keeping a close watch on these guys!
