2A, 3A, 4A all-league football teams: NK’s Colton Bower snags Olympic League MVP

North Kitsap quarterback Colton Bower can add another accolade to his growing resume.

After being named as an all-state linebacker as a freshman, Bower added quarterback to his list of duties, along with kicker and punter. He directed the Vikings to an undefeated Olympic League season and has been named the league’s MVP.

Bower finished the year with 1,345 yards passing, 1,094 rushing and 22 total touchdowns.

Teammate Boaz Adams was named the league’s defensive MVP and Bremerton head coach Paul Theriault took home Coach of the Year honors after guiding a young Knights squad to a 3-3 league record.

The Vikings placed a number of players on the all-league first team, including senior offensive lineman Chance Fredericksen, senior defensive lineman Andrew Jones, junior linebacker Cache Holmes, sophomore long-snapper CJ Wallace and senior defensive back Josh Fisher.

Bremerton quarterback Kelo Logova is the first-team signal-caller. The junior rushed for 515 yards and threw for 657 yards and eight touchdowns. The Knights high-powered offense also landed senior running back Darick DeJesus (874 yards, six touchdowns), sophomore wide receiver Junior Newman (nine receptions, 296 yards, seven touchdowns), senior tight end/linebacker Kaipo Retome and junior offensive lineman Derick Collins.

Olympic junior Trent Feistner rushed for over 1,000 yards this season and ten touchdowns and earned a first-team nod, as did his offensive lineman, senior Calvin Grant and kicker/punter Josh Kennedy. Cameron Bailey was named a first-team defensive lineman, recording 25 tackles and two sacks — he also rushed for 773 yards and 13 touchdowns on offense. Senior defensive back Adam Johnson was also a first-team pick with four interceptions.

Kingston had three first-team selections — junior offensive lineman Josh Robison, senior defensive back Kyler Coe-Yarr and kick returner Tyler Marquez.

In the South Sound Conference, Central Kitsap received three first-team league selections.

Senior linebacker Colton Van Dijk had an outstanding final season in a Cougars uniform. Van Dijk recorded 72 total tackles (49 solo) and had 17.5 tackles for a loss and three fumble recoveries.

Cornerback Nigal Hardee earned a first-team nod with six interceptions, seven passes defensed and 22 total tackles. Offensive lineman Ezekiel Sousou represented the offense on the SSC first team.

Klahowya’s Hunter Wallis was named the defensive MVP and a first-team running back in the 1A Nisqually League. Wallis rushed for 985 yards and 12 touchdowns and also had nine receptions for 112 yards and two receiving touchdowns. On defense, he racked up 114 total tackles (49 solo) including ten tackles for a loss.

Senior offensive lineman Aaron Phillips was also a first-team selection.

In the 4A South Puget Sound League, South Kitsap junior Sam Canton was a first-team pick.
