If you're with Marysville-Pilchuck, get your #MPStrong posters out. Is Bellevue your team? Put those 12-time state champ T-shirts on. It's time for some football in the Tacoma Dome, which means the Washington high school state championships are here. On Friday evening, Bellevue and Marysville-Pilchuck put it all on the line with one goal in mind: a berth into the state title game. For Pilchuck, success hinges on the running game and back Austin Joyner (pictured left). Bellevue's defense has pitched six shutouts this season with the help of linebacker Ross Connors (right).
