J425 Podcast previewing the epic 4A State Semifinal football matchup between the 10-2 Graham-Kapowsin Eagles and the 10-2 Lake Stevens Vikings. The game kicks off 4:00 pm Saturday, Nov. 26 in Lake Stevens. The pod begins with a look back at the 2021 State Champion Graham-Kapowsin team lead by their Gatorade State Player of the Year recipient Josh Wood. We discuss his mic drop moment on ESPN versus 7A Georgia champions Collins Hill led by the now-famous five star recruit Travis Hunter, who now famously plays for Deion Sanders. From there, we discuss the 2022 Graham-Kapowsin’s team’s journey through the schedule and discuss three standout Eagles: RB Julian Davenport, QB Daveon Superales and WR Jabez Woods. Then, it’s on to the Vikings. We discuss how the Vikings have dealt with some serious illness and injury this week before going over the epic run Lake Stevens has enjoyed starting with the win over Eastlake. We discuss how Lake Stevens hasn’t really lost any game in which Jayden Limar has produced at his normally high level, leading us to believe that if Jayden can continue his incredible level of play, the Viking can win. We also discuss the huge steps forward taken by Sophomore QB Kolton Matson (with a brief digression about the excellence of QB Kaden Laplaunt) and how we believe that Matson may be ready for a signature moment. Finally, we offer a prediction for the game.
