Major Snoqualmie Tribe donation helps Wildcat football

Snoqualmie Indian Tribe gave Mount Si's Wildcat Booster Football Club a big boost recently with a sponsorship of $10,000.

The donation helps pay for player development, training for coaches, new equipment and uniforms, academic assistance, technology improvements, and increased playing opportunities for students, said Booster Club president Jeff Mitchell.

“The Snoqualmie Indian Tribe is a great friend of the Wildcat Football Program,” said Charlie Kinnune, Head Football Coach. “I personally can’t thank them enough for everything they’ve done to support our players and coaches, Mount Si High School, and the Snoqualmie Valley community at large.”

The club thanked Shelley Burch, Tribal Council Chair, and Matt Mattson, Tribal Administrator.

Mount Si’s Football Program finished the season with a record of 7-4 overall and 5-2 in the KingCo 3A conference, their seventh consecutive winning season, and qualified for their fifth State Playoff appearance in the last six years. Mount Si was home to the All-league Lineman of the Year, Special Teams Player of the Year, as well as seven First Team and three Second Team players. Academically, two players were recognized as National Football Foundation Scholar-Athletes.
