North Kitsap Vikings Football | Fall Sports Preview

North Kitsap Vikings Football
2016 record: 10-1, Olympic League champions.

Coaching record: Jeff Weible’s overall record at North Kitsap is 45-19.

Returning players: Ryan Brooks, All-League offensive linebacker; Kyle Green, tight end and outside linebacker; Connor Ryan, left tackle; Dax Solis, All-League running back; Kai Warren, receiver; and Connor Westby, All-League linebacker.

Season outlook: “While the Vikings lost 27 seniors from last year’s Olympic League Championship team, the cupboards are certainly not bare,” Weible said. “Our JV team only lost one game and our freshmen were undefeated. Many of those players got tons of varsity action and are now ready to step up to more time on Friday nights and continue the strong tradition of excellence on and off the field. With the addition of transferred players Aiden Allsop and Tyler Sloman from Kingston, we should again be favored to compete for a league title and playoff berth.”

Key new starters: While no positions are decided, many young players who have competed all spring and summer are looking to be “the guy” for their position. Sophomore Josh Fisher, senior Joel Ingram, senior Kii Neal, senior Scott Ray, senior Josh Stackhouse and junior Clayton Williams are the front runners for defensive back positions. Junior Aiden Allsop, senior Edmundo Chavez, junior Noah North, senior Tyler Sloman, and junior Riley Solis look to be the ones handling linebacker positions. On the defensive line, senior Daniel DeWilde, junior DJ Schmidt and junior Robbie Shipp look to fill positions left open by graduation.

Schedule: 7 p.m. Sept. 1 at Bainbridge | 7 p.m. Sept. 8, Central Kitsap | 7 p.m Sept. 15, Port Angeles | 7:15 p.m. Sept. 21 at Olympic | 7 p.m. Sept. 29 at Sequim | 7 p.m. Oct. 6 at Bremerton | 7 p.m. Oct. 13 at Kingston | 7 p.m. Oct. 20 at North Mason.
