Falcons lose to Bothell, still yearn for KingCo Tourney berth

  • Written by Derek Johnson

After losing to Bothell, Woodinville coach Greg Turcott could only shrug and give credit where it was due.

“Some nights you’ve got to tip your hat to the other team,” Turcott said. “They’re really talented and to beat them we need them to have an off night and we need to play above and beyond our usual game.

One-by-one, the young men were introduced by a DJ, as if this was a WWF match on pay-per-view.

For Wayne Maxwell, coaching at the Dallas Cowboy Stadium held special meaning

  • Written by Derek Johnson

AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas is a special place. For starters, it’s home to the Dallas Cowboys. And it was the site of the historic performance by Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers. So the idea of playing on that hallowed turf is a thrilling notion.

For kids on the U.S. U-16 National Team, that notion became reality last week. It was the International Bowl, where elite players representing the USA took on a team from Ontario, Canada. And led by the three interceptions and three touchdowns from Fresno’s Brock Jones, Team USA cruised to a 63-0 win.
