Olympic Football

Head coach: Sal Quitevis

2018 record: 3-7 (3-3 Olympic)

Key players: Adam Johnson, sr., WR/DB; Malcolm Dewalt, sr., RB/DB; Zeke Gillick, sr., QB; Cameron Bailey, sr., RB/DL; Clayton Talarico, sr., RB/LB; Taylor Andrews, sr., WR/DB; Kamano Ruis, so., RB/LB.

Outlook: The Trojans remain the most explosive team in the league with two Division I athletes in Johnson and Dewalt and an experienced signal-caller in Gillick. They had no problem scoring last year, and that should be the case this year. The coaching staff has spent plenty of time in camp working on tackling and defense. A more favorable schedule should give Olympic a boost as well with five home games and no real long road trips. If the defense comes around, it should be enough for the Trojans to secure another playoff berth.

Schedule: Sept. 6, 7 p.m. at Central Kitsap | Sept. 13, 6:30 p.m., Bainbridge | Sept. 20, 6:30 p.m., North Mason | Sept. 27, 6:30 p.m. at Kingston | Oct. 4, 6:30 p.m., Port Angeles | Oct. 11, 6:30 p.m. at Sequim | Oct. 18, 6:30 p.m., Forks | Oct. 25, 6:30 p.m. at Bremerton | Oct. 1, 6:30 p.m., North Kitsap.
