Klahowya Football | Fall Sports Preview

Football

Head coach: Jeff Witte (first year)

2018 record: 7-3 (5-1 Nisqually)

Key players: Hunter Wallis, jr., RB/LB; Anthony Hernandez, jr., RB/LB; Nick Lewis, sr., RB/LB; Jacob Manavie, jr., RB/LB; Jacob McKeel, sr., QB/DB; Aaron Phillips, sr., OL/DT.

Outlook: The Eagles lost a lot of seniors to graduation, including their quarterback, top three receivers and seven of their ten leading tacklers. First-year head coach Jeff Witte will have to rebuild with a much more youthful program this year, but he does have 1,000-yard rusher and leading tackler Hunter Wallis returning, who should continue to be a standout on both sides of the ball. The Eagles also get to play home games on campus this year with the completion of stadium seating at their new turf field.

Schedule: Sept. 6, 6:30 p.m., Kingston | Sept. 13, 6 p.m. at North Mason | Sept. 20, 6:30 p.m., Granite Falls | Sept. 27, 6:30 p.m., at Chimacum | Oct. 11, 6:30 p.m., Vashon Island | Oct. 18, 7 p.m. at Charles Wright Academy | Oct. 25, 6:30 p.m., Port Townsend | Nov. 2, 7 p.m. at Cascade Christian | Nov. 8, 6:30 p.m., Bellevue Christian.
