Amandre Williams, QB ’15, Tahoma – Williams is being recruited as a defensive lineman, but in a 48-41 win over Rogers, the junior completed 37 of 50 passes for 579 yards and five touchdowns. He added a rushing TD, to help the Bears move to 2-0 on the young season. His 579 yards ranks second all-time in state history for a single game.

He finished the night completing 23 of 30 passes for 372 yards with four touchdowns, and 492 yards of total offense. Talkington is a name you will want to keep an eye on in the 2017 recruiting class.

Todd Beamer Defense – The Titans looked like a long shot to win last week, as they played host to the high powered Evergreen Plainsmen of Vancouver. All they did was limit the Plainsmen offense to 2 of 16 passing and only one yard through the air in a 33-0 thumping. Evergreen was only able to muster 68 total yards of offense.

Pasco Bulldogs – Congratulations are in store for the Bulldogs, who got their first win since November 3rd of 2011 when they beat Sunnyside 36-13. The win snaps a 21 game losing streak.
