Former Falcon enjoying life at the Colorado School of Mines

  • Written by Derek Johnson

If you ask Woodinville football coach Wayne Maxwell about former lineman Jacob Hollister, the appreciation is clear.
“Jacob was a ball of energy!” Maxwell said. “He was able to make a lot of plays because of his motor and his huge heart. On top of his on-the-field success, Jacob was also a tremendous leader on the team. He could provide the positive energy and encouragement for his teammates and also lead by example by always doing the right thing ... if it wasn’t enough that he was an All-American kid, he also has a great personality. When we weren’t busy working we always had a lot of fun when Jacob was around.”

Christensen proved helpful as coach for Falcons

Paul Christensen has big ambitions as a soccer player. The WHS senior was one of 32 kids from around the country to compete in the US Soccer U-17 Residency Program in Florida, from 2011-13. Currently, he plays goalie for the Sounder Pre-Academy, and will be enrolling at the University of Portland this year on scholarship.

Due to an Academy rule, Christensen is not allowed to also play for Woodinville High School. But since last fall, he’s helped out as an assistant to Falcon head coach Nathan Davis. The two met in the physics class that Davis teaches, and when Davis offered a chance to coach the women’s team, Christensen jumped right in.

Fantastic freshmen keyed Falcon success

  • Written by Derek Johnson

A couple years ago, I was talking with the late football coach Don James. I mentioned how when he led the Washington Huskies from 1975-1993, freshmen usually redshirted and didn’t play. But these days, freshmen play frequently, and the times have certainly changed. James responded with a dry quip: “Like I always said, the best time to play freshmen is when they’re juniors.”

With the graduation of superstar pitcher Madi Schreyer (now at Stanford) and all-star catcher Alex Boyd (now at Oregon State), there were huge voids to fill.
