Scores & stats
Skyline, QB, 6-2, 195, Jr.
Heaps has been rated as high as the No. 1 junior recruit in the country, and he did nothing to temper expectations, throwing for 2,725 yards and 35 touchdowns with only three interceptions in leading the Sammamish school to the 3A title game. He also ran for seven TDs.
Kennedy, RB, 5-10, 187, Sr.
The explosive Watson averaged more than 12 yards en route to 1,818 rushing yards this season, and his 35 touchdowns rank third in the Burien school's history. In addition to 2,271 all-purpose yards, he was the team's No. 2 tackler.
West Seattle, RB, 5-9, 160, Sr.
Lee, a speedster, ran for 1,413 yards and 21 touchdowns for the Metro League Sound Division champions. He scored all three TDs in West Seattle's breakthrough 21-6 win over O'Dea, the Wildcats' first victory over the Irish.
Skyline, WR, 6-2, 195, So.
One of the state's toughest one-on-one matchups, Williams leads Skyline with 51 catches for 882 yards and 12 touchdowns in only his sophomore season. He also starts at safety and has two interceptions, one returned for a TD.
Skyline, WR, 6-0, 175, Sr.
What doesn't Simone do? Scout.com's top senior recruit in the state has 52 receptions for 818 yards and 14 touchdowns, and also has 11 rushes for 154 yards and a TD. He has four return TDs, and at safety he has five interceptions for the Sammamish school.
Interlake, WR, 5-10, 160, Sr.
Amell had one of the best seasons for a receiver in recent memory. He caught 84 passes for 1,680 yards and 20 touchdowns, finishing sixth in state history in receiving TDs. He had at least 100 yards or a touchdown in every regular-season game for the Bellevue school.
Kentwood, C, 6-3, 260, Sr.
The durable, three-year starter never missed a game or practice at the Covington school. Blackmore led an offensive line that produced another 1,000-yard rusher. The SPSL 4A North lineman of the year has a 3.75 GPA and is considering several scholarship offers.
Mount Si, OL, 6-3, 240, Sr.
Nelson was co-offensive lineman of the year in the KingCo 3A Conference and was a first-team selection at tackle and defensive end. He was an integral part of an offensive line that paved the way for the Snoqualmie school to rush for more than 2,000 yards.
Issaquah, OL, 6-4, 280, Sr.
Rennie was the large left tackle on one of the state's best offensive lines and helped lead the Eagles into the 4A championship game at the Tacoma Dome. He was a first-team tackle in the KingCo 4A Crest Division. He has an offer from Air Force.
O'Dea, OL, 6-6, 250, Sr.
An Oregon State recruit, Enger is an earthmover who chose the Beavers over Stanford and Washington. The offensive lineman of the year in the Metro League Mountain Division is considered one of state's top recruits this year.
Skyline, OL, 6-1, 250, Sr.
On offense, Tramonte was a first-team guard on the all-KingCo Crest Division team, creating time for Skyline's spread offense. On defense, he was a first-team end who had seven tackles for loss and four sacks.
Inglemoor, K, 5-11, 170, Sr.
A touchback machine, Arena made 4 of 5 field-goal attempts this season, all from at least 34 yards. His longest was 47 yards, and his only miss was blocked. But Arena's future is in soccer, and he has committed to 2007 NCAA champion Wake Forest.
Eastside Catholic, kick returner,
5-10, 180, Sr.
Bactol returned three punts and two kickoffs for touchdowns, but his biggest was a 68-yard kick return to set up the winning score in the final minute of a 13-12 win over Mount Si in the state playoffs. He had 624 return yards and 615 yards rushing and receiving.
