Six Kitsap football players named to AP all-state team

North Kitsap’s Kyle Green and Colton Bower were among the six Kitsap County football players selected by the Washington Associated Press for this year’s all-state team.

Green, a senior who moved to the line this season, was chosen for the class 2A first team despite missing three games with a shoulder injury, which affected his availability to play on the offensive side even after he returned. But his performance on the field, which includes a team-high 10 sacks, spoke for itself.

Bower, a freshman, was selected as a 2A first-team linebacker after leading a talented North Kitsap defense in tackles. Bower also missed time after suffering a broken leg in the regular season finale against Olympic. The Vikings gave up an average of 9.5 points per game and recorded five shutouts.

Also picked for the 2A team as an honorable mention was Olympic junior defensive back Adam Johnson. He led the Trojans with six interceptions.

Central Kitsap’s Alex Refilong is a 3A honorable mention after having one of the best rushing performances in Cougars history. Refilong ran for 1,801 yards and 20 touchdowns, including a couple of 200-yard performances.

Klahowya had a pair of honorable mentions in class 1A. Senior wide receiver Drew Dickson, who led the area with 751 yards, and sophomore linebacker Hunter Wallis, who led the Eagles with 98 total tackles. Wallis also had four sacks and two interceptions.
