#3 Camas Keeps Climbing With Impressive 20-13 Win Over #4 Juanita

Written by Bryan Levesque on November 14, 2010

It is hard to believe that with all of the success the Camas Papermakers football program has had over the past decade, and that they are one of the oldest schools in Southwest Washington, that they have never won a state playoff game.

Well thanks to their 20-13 home win over #4 ranked Juanita, you can check that off the list.

Camas has won 86 football games since the start of the 2000 season, 85 of those wins NOT playoff games.

Although Camas had rolled to an impressive 10-0 record, spent most of the season ranked #2 in the AP 3A football poll and scored 424 points, many still questioned the Papermakers defense.

Yep although Camas had only given up 9.6 points per game, many were not sure if they could really stop the run. I mean, they had allowed 6 rushing touchdowns in 10 games, 1 in each of their first 4 games, and 2 to Kelso.

The Juanita Rebels entered the playoffs with a run heavy attack that has seen 10 different players score a rushing touchdown led by Jeremiah Laufasa who had over 1200 yards rushing and 12 rushing touchdowns on the season.

If you weren’t already, you are a believer now.

Camas not only did not allow a rushing touchdown tonight to Juanita, they did not allow a single point.

The Rebels offense only crossed the 50 3 times the entire game, and only crossed the Camas 30 on the final drive of the game.

Camas held Juanita to just 152 yards rushing, under half their season per game average, and almost half of those yards came on the final drive of the night, a drive that ended on a 4th and 5 at the Camas 7 when Laufasa was stopped at the 5.

Juanita’s 11 offensive possession: punt, punt, punt, downs, fumble, half, punt, punt, punt, punt, downs. Including 5 3-and-outs.

Several Papermaker defenders had standout games including Odin Coe, Javon Ingram, Kyle Goodnow, Kamari Brown, Damon Kosaki, Addison Owen, Brent Hill, Jeremy Faulkner, Kaika Gunderson, Scott Feather, Erik Clay, John Payne and Alex Hows, in no particular order.

Then there was the Camas offense.

Backup QB Tony Gennaro was 15 of 28 for 207 yards and threw 2 touchdowns.

The game winner from 9 yards out when he pumped and hit a WIDE open Jeremy Faulkner, a quick hitting turn around strike to TE Kyle Ervin from 6 yards out in the 2nd quarter. Gennaro also made several passes down field including a couple of 36 yard strikes to Brent Hill, one in the 2nd quarter to set up the Ervin touchdown, and one to get the final scoring drive going in the 4th quarter.

Faulkner and Miguel Salamanca each spent most of the night playing the roll of “move the chains man” as the 2 combined for 73 receiving yards on 9 catches, most of which keep Camas drives alive.

RB Zack Marshall who entered the game with 940 rushing yards and 17 rushing touchdowns, left the game hobbling after just 3 runs.

Addison Owen took over on that opening drive and ran in the games first score from 7 yards out.

Juanita did manage to score a pair of touchdowns in the game to keep it close.

Camas fumbled the snap on the 2nd play of their 2nd drive and Dom Chadwick fell on the loose ball in the end zone to tie the game at 6.

Then midway through the 4th quarter, after Camas had driven down to the Rebel 20, Andre Casino blocked the attempted field goal, and Cody Treddenbarger picked it up, and rumbled 70 yards with his 7 man convoy all the way to the end zone to tie the game at 13.

Camas improves to 11-0 with the win. The Papermakers will host #6 Lakes (10-1) Friday at Doc Harris Stadium, time TBD.

    on a side note, I can see now why Skyview got rolled at Marysville-Pilchuck last year. #11, #21 and #43 = MEN! wow Also, as a Husky fan, I am excited that #11 is headed our way.

  2. MM fan on November 14th, 2010 7:40 am

    Congrats Camas! Go all the way!

  3. DCGardner on November 14th, 2010 9:28 am

    Went to the game, and I am scared.

    Lakes and Bellevue are able to run more than swing right, left and middle with the occasional trick pass. But I think the defense will be able to handle it and that’s not the main problem.

    But my god, almost all of those passes were into double coverage closer to the Juanita DB’s. My mouth was a-gape in shock on most of those passes. And the passes that did get caught, the passes weren’t great, but the catches were. Camas needs to get that under control and hope Z.M. is ready to go for the coming weeks. IDK if it might have been first potential playoff win jitters, but my goodness those were some dangerous passes that shouldn’t have been made. Lakes and Bellevue both have better DB’s that will take advantage.

  4. Tiannam on November 14th, 2010 9:35 am

    I still can’t believe I saw the defense that I saw last night. It blew me away. I mean, Hudsons Bay ran against us better. I thought that eventually our defense would falter and it was just a fluke that we were doing so well. But no, it was legit. If it wasn’t raining the score would have been 35-0 I gaurentee it. Juanitas only points came off of lucky weird wacky screw ups. Plus, we didn’t have Zach Marshall the entire game. Also to note, I have never seen that terrible of officiating ever, in any game. Can’t wait to be In dome. I was proud to witness history. Go Papermakers.

  5. 40 on November 14th, 2010 9:42 am

    I’ll agree their seemed to be a few ‘jittery’ passes, but tony also made some great throws as well. He threw the deep ball very well tonight. I’ve was pessimistic about our chances with him to beat juanita but he stepped up and made plays when plays needed to be made.

  6. CAMAS VS BELLEVUE on November 14th, 2010 10:07 am

    Bryan,,, does the kingco leauge have a football website like this one?

  7. time4achange!! on November 14th, 2010 11:04 am

    After watching Evergreen games all season, it was a pleasure to watch a good game. Camas’s defense was great and that Cody . Watched him shake hands with #51 of Juanita B4 the first play and thought that was different, but cool. From there on I saw Cody do his thing. He intiminated Juanita’s lineman all night. You don’t see many leaders back themselves up like he did last night . He was great on both sides of the ball . I agree with DCGardner about Gennaro’s passes. He threw one after faking rt and went back left for a screen pass to WR . Seemed Gennaro threw the ball from memory to a spot . Juanita player was there for interception, but he was fortunate the ball one hopped him . Gennaro throws a nice ball, but needs to more careful next week . Camas needs a better answer to Marshall than #9. Need to mix it more with other runners . #1 ran good and still trying to figure out how they ruled that a fumble . I agree with Tiannam that the officating was not good again. Been noticing that at other games and on Channel 29 . Officating has been on a decline the past couple of yrs, so maybe better training is called for . Good luck Camas and will be in Tacoma waiting ……..

  8. SWWaFootballFan on November 14th, 2010 11:48 am

    The final stats don’t show just how dominating Camas stopped Juanita last night. I was skeptical that Camas could shut down an Elite Rushing team. As a previous poster had said Hudson Bay ran better against them. Way to step it up Defense.

    Odin was all over the field, but to me the POTG and who should be the POTW was Ingram.

    Looks like he came in and replaced Kosaki who left early with an injury, and he wreaking havoc all over the place.

    Addison if you read these comments ( hopefully not ) two things for you..

    Fair Catch man!! We aren’t snapping inside our 10 if you fair catch that punt @ the 25

    Second: If Marshall is hurting, you have to step up your A game on offense. Hit the holes full speed and run North South.

    Re: the officials? The game officiating was above average in my opinion. I like to see football games where the hankies are left in the pants most of the game.

  9. Impartial Observer on November 14th, 2010 12:33 pm

    I too thought the game was fairly officiated. The refs did a good job. It’s not easy. I’ve seen some games this year where the refs made me cringe in disgust because they made the game about them. So bad. The standing rule for refs should be that the players should decide the game, not the refs. Too often officials inject themselves into the game and play a role–which they should not. I thought last night’s crew did a good job. It was a tough and very aggressive game. They maintained control of the game and let the players determine the outcome. That’s what they’re supposed to do.

    Juanita, wow, that was a big, physical football team. But very one-dimensional. Camas’ defense truly rose to the occasion and was absolutely dominant. The two touchdowns Juanita scored were football plays (not flukes), but one doesn’t see two plays like that in a season, let alone in a single game. That Camas could overcome those mistakes and still triumph is a testament to their character and resolve.

    As for the future for Camas, I hope they can find a way to not let injuries determine their course. They seem to be getting bit by the injury bug. They really need Zach Marshall, a darting, slashing runner who spots the opening and hits it with lightening speed. Number 1 has that kind of energy too, I hope he gets a chance if Marshall can’t go (ball security!). Addison Owen is a phenomenal athlete, and best serves the team at receiver–he’s virtually uncoverable, and at free safety. But he hasn’t had the reps at RB and seemingly is without some of the natural instincts for the position (please, I’m not criticizing him!). If Marshall can’t go, I would think Eagle would look to using the deep and talented receiver corps more. Number 2 is a stud. So is 35. So is 8. And of course, Owen 9.

    There’s been some discussion about Logan Grindy but not as much as I thought there would be. Tony Gennaro has performed very well, above expectations. He will get better, but right now, he possesses the skills to take Camas to the Dome, which is great for him and for the team. Still, one has to feel for the Camas kids and for Grindy. He was a three year starter and legitimate star–the catalyst for the team. This might be overstating it a little, but not much: a player like Grindy only comes around once every 10 or 15 years, maybe once in a generation. He was a leader and could make every throw. I’m sure he’ll go somewhere next year and play, but it sure would have been nice for his skills to be on display on this big stage, and I’m sure scouts were waiting for this too. Life is cruel sometimes. Keep your head up Logan.

    If the defense can play like it did last night, I think any future opponent has reason for concern, yes, even Bellevue.

    Great game last night.

  10. Bryan Levesque on November 14th, 2010 12:37 pm

    time4achange!! – That was a fumble, I was not so sure at the game, but i watched the film frame by frame, and it came out for sure. Good call by our refs, and trust me, I don’t think I have said those words more than 3 or 4 times in the past 3 years, which is a whole other story.

  11. PopPrep on November 14th, 2010 12:47 pm

    They stopped the run because Juanita wasn’t balanced enough. All Camas did was stack up against the line and they stopped the run. Camas won’t be able to do that against teams that can run AND pass. And Juanita’s defense held Camas up quite a bit too. Without Marshall it became pretty obvious what was going to happen every play. And when its obvious what your offense is going to do every, single, play that’s not good.

  12. Camtown on November 14th, 2010 1:51 pm

    I don’t get your logic PopPrep. Juanita used that same offense to go 9-1. The only other team to slow their run game was Bellevue, but Juanita still scored on them. Camas denied them an offensive touchdown for the entire game and suddenly Juanita’s offense “wasn’t balanced enough” and our defense is only par. “All Camas did” was something no other team could do against Juanita all season, and you won’t even give them a little credit.

    “Camas won’t be able to do that against teams that can run AND pass.” So that Skyview game was just a fluke then…

  13. SWWaFootballFan on November 14th, 2010 2:41 pm

    I disagree popprep.

    Camas was pretty one dimensional when Marshall went out but the only thing that stopped Camas last night was Camas.

    Some dropped balls, some poorly thrown balls.

    I don’t remember any sacks ( someone correct me if I am wrong )

    as far as one dimensional teams here is a couple that might ring a bell

    Bellevue ( they throw less than Juanita)
    Skyline ( they have been pretty pass happy the last few years)

    You still have to win the game by scoring more points than the other team regardless of what style of football they play.

  14. time4achange!! on November 14th, 2010 3:00 pm

    Thanks Bryan, it must be nice to have that kind of equipment . I saw a few blocking in the back in front of the officals, there were late hits also. When the back offical went to side judge on his call when #9 fumbled into the end zone and picked it up B4 going out of bounds . I get nervious when officals get together to get the call rt . They all have different interruptation of the rules ….

  15. wsumj on November 14th, 2010 3:29 pm

    Wow. Wow. Wow.

    Thank you, Camas. That was the best $8 I have ever spent.
    It was fun to witness history. Congratulations gentlemen.

  16. KingCorep on November 14th, 2010 3:39 pm

    1st off, this site is absolutely awesome! I wish kingCo had something similar.
    I had been anticipating this matchup since the brackets came out, and we were not let down. There have been rumblings about Camas all year up here so I had to see, first hand what the commotion was about.
    Camas definitely plays like a team that wants a trip to the Tdome. Their team D and electric energy were very impressive. I don’t that anyone will put up more than 28 on them (yes, including Bellevue.)
    Juanita is a MUCH better team than Lakes. Unless Camas overlooks them and reps Bellevue all week, this game should be over by the 3rd.
    Camas should be rooting for a Liberty upset over Bellevue. Although they have the best RB in the state, Chandler Jenkins, their defense is less stout and tenacious as Bellevue’s. Camas would be able to establish the run and then rip them with the pass (as long as they throw away from jenkins and #5 Jake Bainton.)
    On the other hand, Bellevue’s Defense is young, but lead by studs Kendrick Vanackren, Marcus Henry and Michael Foreman (All Division 1 players.) Ever since they changed defensive coordinators after the Skyline loss, Their defensive backs have flourished. This is because of the non stop pressure they bring out of 3-4 and 4-3 looks. Camas will shoot themselves in the foot in they try to throw on them. BUT every defense has a weakness, and Bellevue’s is defending the run. Chandler Jenkins ran for 160 yards in their first meeting (interesting to see how he does this week.) So Camas’ best shot would be trying to pound it right at Bellevue while not getting cute by attempting to hit them over the top.

    A Camas v. Bellevue matchup in the Tdome would be one for the ages!

    Congrats to the Papermakers on their impressive season thus far!

  21. redman on November 14th, 2010 8:26 pm

    Ah i see

  22. Gabe Gennaro on November 14th, 2010 8:52 pm

    DCGardner – curls, hitches, slants, and stops are all passes designed to be thrown to a spot and are all timing. They are designed to be thrown in seams, in traffic, and yes, you expect defenders to be close by. The key is to hit the receivers on the spot when they make their curl, stop, slant, etc. TG hit those receivers right where he was supposed to. If you noticed, the long passes were all thrown away from the defenders where only the receiver could catch the ball or the pass go incomplete. Those are not spot passes but thrown to receivers streaking and trying to beat their defenders in space. Once again TG did that well. Give the kid credit. He has stepped in when no one, like yourself, has given him a chance to succeed. Props to the junior QB and the rest of the team in the way they have supported him.

  23. UnionFAN on November 14th, 2010 9:25 pm

    Congrats Camas! Keep rolling…

  24. DCGardner on November 14th, 2010 9:54 pm

    All I am saying GG is that although that you should expect to have defenders there, I saw a lot of those passes go short, long, low, etc. I never meant to say he did a bad job. He threw to the receivers he was supposed to at the right time he was supposed to, I am just trying to say I think the “throw” was off for TG that night. Take the game against RB for example, that was outstanding. I just think he was a little off this game is all and hope he continues to get better.

  25. wsumj on November 14th, 2010 10:19 pm

    What I saw.

    1. A Camas crowd that was FIRED UP.
    2. A Camas defense that played OUT OF ITS MIND. WOW.
    3. A Camas offense that scored when they needed to without their starting RB.
    4. A Camas band that was on its A Game. 2 words: Suicide Trombones.
    5. A Camas head coach get a well deserved Gatorade bath

  26. BoomBoomTap on November 14th, 2010 11:27 pm

    My thoughts on the game:
    Overall well played by Camas.

    My thoughts on Camas’ D:
    Great job. I see a solid game plan and solid execution from those boys every week. Definably the strong suit of this Camas team.

    My thoughts on Camas’ O:
    Shaky at best. Seems like once Marshall went out and with Grindy already being out they were sent back 4-6 weeks. I understand those are your offensive leaders but you have to be ready. Hope to see a quicker, more deadly offense next week.

    My thoughts on TG’s QB play:
    Very shaky. Risky throws that didn’t have to be made. Saw a lot of ducks, maybe from the rain not sure. I’de like to see him use his feet more, make more teams afraid of his run game as well. Going to need better next week.

  27. 40 on November 14th, 2010 11:31 pm

    kingcorep

    refreshing post from an ‘outsider’. I hope your right in that Juanita is much stronger then lakes, that was a very physical game and it would be nice if the next one is a little less physical.

  28. 40 on November 14th, 2010 11:37 pm

    I think tony got the jitters out and actually played pretty well. It’s not like we were facing fort, the juanita D was tough. There is going to be times when your going to have to try and fit the ball into tight spaces and he did that on some occasions. His deep balls were also on the money all night. And this was all done on a rainy night were balls will slip a bit. There was definately more good then their was bad. Nice game Tony.

  29. Gary Garland on November 15th, 2010 12:25 am

    A big Congrats to the” Mighty Papermakers.”, Their defense should be called “The Swarm”and i think that was the best crowd i can remember, ever, in my 50 years of Papermaker Fanhood. Oh, by the way, Where’s Union playing these days ?????

  30. WolverineFan on November 15th, 2010 12:39 am

    The same place you will be after you play Bellevue. I guess you can join the lost to Bellevue in the semifinal part of history too.

  31. Ketto on November 15th, 2010 1:25 am

    Is this really the attitude of all Bellevue fans? This ego-maniacal? Regardless of how far Camas gets, I really hope you eat your words eventually.

  32. Tribe Member. on November 15th, 2010 1:52 am

    The real state championship will be taking place next saturday At Lampson Stadium.Between KAMIAKIN And MT.SPOKANE. iTS A SHAME ONE OF THESE HAS TO LOSE CAUSE THE WINNER OF THIS WILL BE THE CHAMP.

  33. CHSbleachercreature on November 15th, 2010 6:46 am

    Yea but then again why not. theyve been the most successful team in wa 3a for years now. Let them talk the talk. And one day someone will knock them off their high horse. Im not saying camas will be the one, although i hope it is.

  34. hardhitter on November 15th, 2010 7:15 am

    Bottom line….the interior of Camas defense DOMINATED Juanita…DOMINATED…
    Stoller and Brown could of taken handoffs (and almost did) Juanita averaged over
    300 yds a game on the ground…how many did they get? Half of that?…..I have watched every single snap of Camas this year…there was NEVER one time that I felt Juanita had a chance in that game…What was Camas defensive line out weighed by? almost 100lbs a man? Really?,,,,you can’t teach speed..How many teams could lose their top running back…probably their best “athlete” #10 all in the first couple of series and not miss a beat?…..Mr. Gennero is simply a young man who plays within himself….labled “a backup” by many in our state who can pump fake a corner out of his jock and hit Mr. Faulkner in the corner to secure the win…Bellevue keep talking smack…you beat Juanita by 7…Camas did also…..
    Juanita didn’t score on offense last Friday for the first time in THREE years……
    Gennero falls on his own fumble, somebody knocks the ball carrier down on the field goal block and the score is 20-2…..Personally I hope you get by Liberty…and Camas gets by Lakes….Let the guys settle this on the field…until then…congrats
    Camas and your coaching staff….you ALL earned this…FIRST TEAM IN CAMAS HISTORY TO WIN A STATE GAME…KEEP CLIMBING…

  35. defeated on November 15th, 2010 10:13 am

    Sorry to burst the camas buble but i think they will get by lakes becasue their defense is that good and Lakes has a tough time throwing the ball…..they did a great job on saturday night no doubt but Bellevue executes at a much higher level than juanita does on offense…you have not seen anything like that before…sorry….they also have dbs that are the real deal and i just dont see camas putting it together to beat them i suspect a 35 -14 type game with bellevue wining….to be honest i hope camas proves me wrong so i dont feel so bad about losing to them

  36. wsumj on November 15th, 2010 10:21 am

    WolverineFan. You guys have by far the most dominant program this state has ever seen. I guarantee you didnt get their by overlooking opponents…

    Concentrate on Liberty because bro… you will have your hands full.
    Just like Camas will versus Lakes.

    Good luck and hope to see you fellas in the semis.

  37. wsumj on November 15th, 2010 10:43 am

    Does anyone know how many 1st downs Juanita got? I know they got most of their yardage (and first downs) from that last drive.

    It cant be more then 10.

  38. NWRainsRHere on November 15th, 2010 12:38 pm

    For all the talk about Bellevue, I for one, am much more interested in talking/hearing about Lakes this week. All they’ve done sine the beginning of the 2005 season, is gone 64-7 (through their most recent game.) 5 of those 7 losses were in the state playoffs. That’s a 90% winning percentage.

    I’m looking forward to Bryan’s “everything you want to know” segment about Lakes’ current season. Lakes’ only loss (28-21) came at the hands of Capital (which is ranked by MaxPreps as the #2 3A team in the state.) I don’t know anything about Lakes’ strengths or weaknesses, but I’m pretty sure a team with their tradition isn’t planning to come to Doc Harris and roll over!

    Should be another great game. I hear temps could be in high 30′s by game time, so bundle up!

    Good luck Papermakers!

  39. Food For Thought on November 15th, 2010 1:42 pm

    I have heard from people (not coaches yet) that unfortunately Marshall is out with a broken ankle, and #10 Kosaki is now out the rest of the year.

    It comes at a very bad time and more so with Grindy already out.

    I hope they can overcome as I will be there rooting for them on Friday night.

  40. High School Football Fan I on November 15th, 2010 1:55 pm

    Maybe someone from EHS can weigh in since they played Lakes early in the season. It seems the combination of QB Dozier and RB Littlejohn are pretty impressive. Lakes can effectively pass and run so they are not as one dimensional as Juanita. I expect a very good game from them and pulling for a Camas victory!

  41. Ketto on November 15th, 2010 2:06 pm

    Broken ankle? All the talk I’ve heard from people (including the day after report from the columbian) seemed like it wasn’t that bad — I really doubt something like a broken ankle would be something that could be hidden under a “not that bad” and “seemingly positive”. I’ll wait for a report from coaches or something.

    What happened to Kosaki?

  42. Injury Info on November 15th, 2010 2:45 pm

    The Day After Report from the Columbian can be mis-guided and the best guess is they (Columbian) only get portions of the details from coaches or trainers or what the coaches actually provide. In such injury cases, I’m certain coaches only provide as little information as possible due to optimism and how can you fault them for that? Then again, some coaches provide false injury information to the Columbian as well and I’m not sure what the motive is behind that either as none of it benefits the injured player.

  43. Camtown on November 15th, 2010 3:03 pm

    Zach was walking around on the sideline without limping as early as the 3rd quarter, quite hard to do with a broken ankle.

  44. Food For Thought on November 15th, 2010 3:15 pm

    Sorry still trying to get info. I guess Kosaki is out for the season, ankle. Must be he is the one who broke his ankle. Am being told that Marshall is out for sure this weekend, but may be back after this. Of course game day adrenaline may make it possible to play, but I hear he will be held out, so it obviously isn’t broken.

  45. Egreen on Lakes on November 15th, 2010 3:17 pm

    They killed us like most teams lol….. anywhooo, camas can beat them, it will be an amazing game and i hope camas kills em, screens and that dang QB got us… but i think camas has it on lock

  46. Ketto on November 15th, 2010 3:28 pm

    Lower leg/ankle problems seem to be haunting Camas players this year :(

  47. Impartial Observer on November 15th, 2010 4:12 pm

    Time to institute mandatory ankle taping! They may already be doing this and it’s just a string of bad luck, but sheesh, this is terrible news. If it’s just a sprain, I wonder why they would be holding him out if he could take the pain? Docs and parents know best.

    In many ways, football is a game of attrition. At the high school level, the ability to keep players healthy can be the difference between moving on and going home. Seeing how physical that Juanita game was, I’m surprised there were not more injuries. I’ll bet some of the guys were really feeling it on Sunday!

    Two of the Juanita players were also knocked out with lower leg/foot injuries. I wonder if there’s something with the new turf?

    The main thing for this weekend is for the defense to step up – again, and for TG to play within himself. He’s got the skills. And the third key is to generate some kind of run game.

    OK, I’m not that impartial. : )

    All Camas Supporters, I can assure you that WOLVERINEFAN is not from Bellevue. As an alum, I know for a fact that no adult fan would come on to a classy, well-educated forum such as this one and bash a team that we aren’t even guaranteed to play. So please don’t waste your time responding to his arrogance. Bellevue has created a reputation for ‘talking with their pads’ not this pregame nonsense!
    40, Lakes will have the athletes that Juanita had, but not the tenacity. If Camas comes out flat and forgets about their disciplined-ways, then it will be a game.
    But #43,21 and 11 will not be on the field for the Lancers : ) those kids (transfers from Marysville) are awesome.

    Take care of Lakes this weekend and hopefully we can manage a W against a mighty good Liberty team. Then we can start talking T-Dome football!
    We all wish we could look forward to playing another physical team from down south….but Liberty has something to say about that : )

    No way, I can’t believe that another player is out for the season until I get something offical. I gotta say though it doesn’t surprise me with some of those hits. Those Juanita players were not playing soft, and they were most certianly not playing nice. I was surprised there wasn’t more personal fouls.

    NWRainsRHere, I agree with you on the bundling up. I wonder how many high schoolers will be running around in shorts anyway :) . According to the Weather Channel there will also be a 60% chance of precipitation along with 12 mph winds as well so don’t forget the umbrellas. Hopefully we don’t have too many cramps in the cold weather.

    As far as what Lakes is bringing I hear they have a monster of a linemen Zach Banner of the class of 2012.

    Hes big but the video didnt look so good. Maybe just very high quality d ends?

  51. DCGardner on November 15th, 2010 4:50 pm

    Apparently according to that guy who does the videos, he was on the short list for Camp MVP. That camp at OSU probably included a lot of the D-1 talent in the region (as in NW not clark county)

  52. 40 on November 15th, 2010 5:35 pm

    any thing else you can tell us about lakes wolverinefan?? What type of O and D do they run, etc…

    From your games with union, I remember the bellvue supporters as classy individuals on this board. Every team has its idiots though that pop off a little to much.

  53. WolverineFan on November 15th, 2010 10:30 pm

    Who said I was an adult wolverinefan? Trying to pull an ad hominem by calling me “classless”? That’s “classless” in of itself bud. Its that exact same “talk with your pads” mentality combined with the consistency of success that BHS has that has me so confident. Heck a lot of students don’t even bother showing up to games because we win so much. That’s the kind of tradition B-vue has and always will.

    WolverineFan: you’re right, you’re a child. Now go to bed, your mommy’s calling. A powerhouse program like Belleview doesn’t need someone like you sullying their reputation. Keep it positive dude.

  55. WolverineFan on November 16th, 2010 12:08 am

    Oh but I am keeping it positive mate. I am not the one calling people “child”.

    All I am saying is that right now as it stands I see Bellevue as the better program, period. I am not to crazy about Camas and their chances of winning facing Bellevue for the first time.

    We right here at the Dome baby. And we not going anywhere.

  56. DCGardner on November 16th, 2010 12:09 am

    Your not looking to adult right now either man…

  57. KingcoRep on November 16th, 2010 12:26 am

    That post at 4:14pm was posted by me, I accidentally posted my name as the dweeb I wanted everyone to disregard! One too many concussions I guess!

    40, I do have some more info on Lakes:
    They run mainly a spread offense, sometimes going 21 personnel. They have a dual threat QB in Cedric Dozier and a dynamic RB (can’t remember his name.)
    Zach Banner is their big time OT prospect.
    Lakes has athletes all over the field at all times. But talent doesn’t win championships, discipline does. I think that Camas’ physicality and tenacity along with their superior discipline should set the tone early and put the game out of reach by the 4th.
    BUT it is the playoffs, Lakes is ranked #5 for a reason, so anything can happen.
    They are a very diverse team (Similar to R.Beach) that will do anything to get inside the heads of their opponent. I would recommend Camas’ players talk with their pads and not buy into the trash talking.

    Hopefully there are no significant injuries during this game!

    Prediction:
    Camas-28
    Lakes-7

  58. DCGardner on November 16th, 2010 12:42 am

    Levonte Littlejohn is that RB from lakes btw.

  59. KingcoRep on November 16th, 2010 1:11 am

    DC, yup thats him! great downhill runner. Along with a catchy name!

    Whats the feeling around Camas? Or is this a premature question that can be answered on Wed/Thurs? Confident?Nervous? Overconfident?

  60. Ketto on November 16th, 2010 1:37 am

    Excited, mainly. Playing this week is a new concept to us. Everyone is incredibly excited.

  61. bringingbacktheredandblack on November 16th, 2010 5:41 pm

    Kingco:
    As a student at Camas the feeling I have towards the game at the moment is a little bit of nervousness. But of course that is to be expected as Ketto pointed out that this is new to us. Along with the nervousness we are also very confident on us coming out on top thanks to the increase in confidence the student body has towards Gennaro.
    As for the Marshall situation I have heard that he is 50/50 for the game on Friday or Saturday as the severe winds in Tacoma have kept Lakes from being able to practice.

Got something to say?
