An in-state look ahead: 2007 DB's
Gig Harbor's Toney Henderson (5-11,180) is a player that has exactly what the Huskies need – speed. He is incredibly fast, posting legit 4.4 speed, and he's also the state champion in the long jump. Henderson was named All-Narrows league as a kick returner and a defensive back as a junior and was an all-league wideout as a sophomore. He is a former teammate of new Washington safety Jake Merrill and don't think for a second that the gregarious new Husky isn't already working his former teammate. Henderson will probably garner interest from the entire Pac 10 and with a good senior year, could have a plethora of offers under his belt before it's all over with.
Bellevue's QB/S Eric Block (6-1, 175), is more well-known for his ability to run the Wolverines' complicated rush attack, but make no mistake that just because he probably wouldn't be a D1 QB automatically makes him a D1-AA guy. In fact this couldn't be farther from the truth. His play in the secondary for Butch Goncharoff's team was very impressive, he plays much in the same way the Coombs brothers (Matt and John) roamed the middle for BHS for years. But he's got the athleticism and intangibles, including true football savvy, to earn him D1 scholarships.
Ferndale RB/DB Brady Locker (5-9, 175) is a player that certainly has the pedigree to follow in the footsteps of cousin Jake - who will be playing for the University of Washington this fall. An all-state selection as a sophomore, Locker does a little bit of everything very well for Golden Eagles Head Coach Jamie Plenkovich and will be a huge reason why Ferndale makes it back to the playoffs in 2006.
O'Dea CB/RB Quinton Richardson (6-1, 190), West Valley (Yakima) S Phil Jennings, Mead S Nick Proen (6-1, 180), Highline's Anthony Watkins (6-1, 185), Skyline's Ryan Edwards (5-10, 180) and the Ingraham duo of Demario Worthy (5-11, 160) and Robbie Vallejo (6-0, 175) are all players to watch.
