The Wildcat show: Senior Mount Si football players hyped to kick off Coach Charlie Kinnune’s 20th season
“Run through, Run through! Bam!”
Defensive Coordinator Wayne Lewis was emphatic about what he wanted in the tackling drill, and Connor Deutsch was only too happy to comply.
The 175-pound running and defensive back stepped and charged with the rest of the Mount Si team, prepping for their first contest tonight.
“The team is looking good,” said Deutsch, who was hyped about preseason rating of second in Kingco in a Seattle Times 3A coaches’ poll.
“I want to live up to that,” he said.
Deutsch joins four other seniors as team captains: Sherman Hutcherson, Josh Mitchell, Kolton Auxier and Ryan Atkinson.
Atkinson, who was expected to be starting quarterback tonight (Sept. 2), in Mount Si's first home match-up, a nonleague game against Woodinville. Game time is 7 p.m.
“I think we’re ready,” he said. “I’m excited... real excited to see what happens.”
Starting his 20th September as head coach, Charlie Kinnune said the team, while a mite young with 15 seniors, is still strong and well-respected.
“What I’m most proud of is that I’m as excited in year 20 as year one,” he said. “I really like the families, the kids, here.”
“I want to see us get to the Dome,” said senior linebacker Caymon Granillo. “That’s what everybody wants.”
