North Kitsap football | Fall Sports Preview

Head coach: Jeff Weible

2017 record: 10-1 (6-0)

Key players: Robbie Shipp, sr., OL/DL; Aiden Allsop, sr., TE/LB; Noah North, sr., RB/LB; Kyle Green, OL/DL; Andrew Blackmore, sr., QB/DB; John Jones, sr., QB/DB; Clayton Williams, sr., RB/DB.

Outlook: They’re still the team to beat in the Olympic League, having not lost a league game since 2015. The Vikings graduated a lot of talent from last year’s state quarterfinal team but should be able to reload and stay ahead of the pack despite the improvement of several teams. Another state playoff appearance is certainly in reach if the players mesh well.
