The pick: Lake Stevens 47 Kennedy Catholic 0. We’re going to go ahead and ride the wave on this Viking defense — we bet Eric Dinwiddie keeps opponents scoreless for the playoffs and Tom Tri’s offense hits their average output of 47 points. JFK chucked their pro style spread offense after last year and now run a wishbone wing T type thing. Their rushing attack is led by junior RB Indiana Jones. Yes that’s his real, birth certificate name. Yes he’s good.
But DC Eric Dinwiddie always has his charges ready for the option attack. We also like Kolton Matson to have a big night, as JFK responds to the tape of Bubba Limar rushing for 246 in less than two quarters. Knowing that they must try to stop Bubba should open up lanes for Kolton to pursue that TD record. He’s six short of Skinny Eason’s season mark coming in to tonight.
Elsewhere, big games at 1, 3 and 4 pm tomorrow. At 1pm, Bellevue visits Arlington in a matchup of 3A powers. (ICYMI - undefeated Arlington is ranked first in 3A — and headed for league play inside the same 4A division as the Vikings beginning next year, a J425 report.) Gonzaga Prep travels to Graham-Kapowsin tomorrow at 3 pm — winner of that game gets the winner of Eastlake and Skyview which kicks off tomorrow at 4 pm. The winner of Lake vs JFK can watch Mount Si travel cross state to take on Kamiakin in Pasco tomorrow at 3pm. The winner gets the winner of Friday’s game in Lake Stevens.
