For just the football season, the WCC has joined forces with the Class 3A schools in the Olympic League — which include Bremerton, North Kitsap, Olympic and Port Angeles — to create the eight-team Olympic/Western Cascade Conference, or better known as the OWL. The top four teams will make the Week 10 district crossover playoff game. Three of the four new teams Capital will play in the new league combined for only eight victories last season.The rest of the article focuses on Capital's double threat, Reid and Riley Wall, who look to improve on last year's 5-5 rebuilding season, taking advantage of some (hopefully) weaker opponents and racking up some big yards on the ground. They'll be surrounded by an experienced team--lots of seniors on both sides of the ball.
No mention of the starting QB, or, for that matter, of other key aspects of this year's squad. I may have to do some digging, talk to Coach Johnson again, see if there's anything new afoot. At our first Learning Improvement Days, all the football coaches were in high spirits. I'm hoping it's a good sign.
Here's a quick link to the season schedule. Fearsome O'Dea shows up first, ranked fifth in MaxPreps' preseason poll. You may remember them as the team that knocked us out of the playoffs last year.
Friday the 5th, revenge is a dish best served at home.
