Bremerton football | Fall Sports Preview

Head coach: Paul Theriault

2017 record: 8-2 (5-1)

Key players: RB Rasheed Joiner, sr.; McCoy Retome, sr., OL/LB; Kaipo Retome, LB, jr., Kimo Retome, jr., TE/OLB; Yakir Irving, jr., OL/DL; Brock Criss, sr., RB/DB; Ryan Saylor, sr., RB/DB; Kelo Logova, so., QB; Kaleb Peterson, sr., TE.

Outlook: Numbers were an issue last season with only about 25 healthy players on the sideline by the end of last season, but the players were talentd. The Knights are still top-heavy in terms of experience, but a large freshman class should help Bremerton be competitive for years to come. This year’s team is a little younger but is skilled enough to make another run at the postseason.

Schedule: Aug. 31, 7 p.m. at Black Hills | Sept. 7, 7 p.m. at Wilson | Sept. 14, 7 p.m. Rochester | Sept. 21, 7 p.m., at North Kitsap | Sept. 28, 7 p.m. at North Mason | Oct. 5, 7 p.m., Port Angeles | Oct. 12, 7 p.m., Kingston | Oct. 19, 6:45 p.m. at Olympic | Oct. 26, 7 p.m., Sequim.
