When word came out last winter that the Union Titans would be leaving the 3A Greater St. Helens League for the 4A GSHL, many of the remaining 3A GSHL schools were able to finally take a breath. However, the trade off for the Titans did not prove any better for most of the league.

Although Union went up, Kelso and Mountain View both dropped down from the 4A to the new 7 team 3A GSHL. The two seemed to have no issues sliding right in and taking the 2nd and 3rd post season berths in 2010.

Camas stepped right into the void left by the Titans going 6-0 in league and 11-1 overall while winning the league outright for the first time since 2006, while the Hilanders and Thunder went a combined 8-0 vs the remaining 4 schools in the 3A GSHL.

There must be something about Camas and a 7 team 3A Greater St. Helens League. In 2005, the last year the 3A GSHL had 7 schools, Camas completed the regular season 9-0 and 6-0 in league. That year the Papermakers advanced to the 3A playoffs undefeated where they lost at home to the Lakes Lancers.

Throughout the 2010 season, the Camas Papermakers were dominant on both offense and defense. They scored an average of 38.8 points per game while only allowing 11.3, and before their 27-21 overtime loss to Lakes in the Quarterfinals, the Papermakers had now allowed more than 15 points in any game.

Camas QB Logan Grindy had another fantastic year. Grindy finished the season with 1696 passing yards, 17 touchdowns and a 108.63 QB rating, all of which led the 3A GSHL. Although Grindy’s 2010 stats were lower than both his 2008 and 2009 totals, his decision making skills fueled the Papermakers offense which set a school record for points in a season with 465 (40 more than the previous record of 425 set in 2005). Grindy completed passes to 15 different receivers this season and also ran for over 100 yards and 4 touchdowns before breaking his leg in week 9, a 24-13 win over Kelso.

While Grindy was leading his team on offense, fellow Camas senior Odin Coe was leading the Papermakers defense. Coe was nearly unstoppable all season as most teams did not even attempt to run his way. While the Papermakers defense did not set a school record for least points allowed (set in 2005 allowing 118 in 10 games) they did allow less points per game, 11.3 per game, over the 12 game season then the 11.8 per game of 2001. Odin put on his best performance of the season in the first round of the playoffs recording over 20 tackles in a 20-13 win over #4 Juanita, a game in which the Papermakers defense did not allow a single point.

Of the 26 players selected on our 1st team (11 offense, 11 defense, 4 special teams) 14 were also selected on our preseason 3A All-League team.

Camas landed 12 of the 26 players on our 1st team, 11 of which position players, while Mountain View had 6 players selected, 5 of which position players. Kelso had 4 players selected to the 1st team, 3 of which position players.

    Bryan, so I guess Kawawaki did it all by himself? No o line from river?

  2. Crawford74 on November 25th, 2010 9:29 am

    You have a few minor mistakes featured on your all-league team list, Jai Girod from fort vancouver was a first team all league linebacker, and richard vansiclen was first team all league punter.

  3. Crawford74 on November 25th, 2010 9:30 am

    nevermind pay no attention to my comment, i did not read that this was the websites personal choice for all league

  4. GSHL Fan on November 25th, 2010 9:43 am

    I agree with CRfan it takes quite an O-Line to get a sophomore running back 900+ yards, not saying that kawawaki doesnt deserve it, but give river some credit here.

  5. Cody on November 25th, 2010 1:01 pm

    The point is that it’s up to Bryan to decide, and offensive line is not the easiest of positions to pick out the best athletes in the county in the first place. I have seen them all play, they are good picks. If Bryan had a 2nd team all league, I’m sure some of those River o linemen would be in there

  6. Gamer on November 25th, 2010 2:26 pm

    i really think alot of kids got ripped off this year in 3A, specially in the voting for Offensive Player of the year i think it should have been between Jones, Marshall or Kawawaki, no disrespect to Grindy but he was not the top offensive player this year i know the kids a division 1 prospect but still, Camas showed they could win two playoffs games without him something they couldnt even do last year. Jones, Kawawaki and Marshall deserved this award more than anyone else, each carried there team and were out standing players, makes me think the voting for offensive player of the year was a pity vote more than anything.
    Also in my opinion Mt View got robbed in first team offense, MTV arguably had one of the best running attacks in the entire GSHL and only 2 players got first team?! that doesnt make sense to me, some might disagree but thats just my opinion.

  7. Where's the TE? on November 25th, 2010 5:16 pm

    Brian, I noticed that there is no tight end on your 3a all league team.. I’m assuming this is a mistake an just wanted to let you know..

  8. Wheres the TE? on November 25th, 2010 5:21 pm

    Brian,

    You seem to be missing a tight end on your 3a all league team.. just an observation.

  9. GSHL 3a follower on November 25th, 2010 5:23 pm

    i agree with gamer. PJ Jones should have won player of the year for the 3a. He rushed for over 1000 yards this season on the best rushing attack in the GSHL. no disrespect to grindy, he is a great player and had a good year too, but PJ had a better one and was more important to his team than grindy was

  10. Bryan Levesque on November 25th, 2010 8:03 pm

    Well in football you can only have 11 players on the field at once. So I had to pick 11 guys for Offense and 11 guys for Defense. I was not able to pick 14 on offense and 13 on defense, although I feel if I had 14 v 11 I would win a lot of games. As far as the TE, I opted to have a slot receiver in Marshall over a TE. As far as Grindy, he did pass for 1696 yards and threw 17 TD in 9 games, both of which led the 3A GSHL. Jones did have 1145 rushing yards and 14 rushing TD in 10 games. Marshall had 1551 yards from scrimmage and 21 total TD’s in 11 games (if you count his 3 carries vs Juanita as a game played). The thing is you have to pick someone, and we picked Logan. We don’t do co’s. I just look at it this way, If I had to pick a team of 11 offense and 11 defense (not 14 and 13) players who would I pick to be on that team. That’s how the teams are picked. As far as Kawawaki, obviously he had help from his O-Line, everyone has help from their OL be it the QB, RB or WR. However that does not matter. We picked what we felt to be the 5 best Offensive Linemen form the 7 GSHL teams. None from River made the cut, that does not mean they are not good, or did not help Kawawaki get his yards, it just means none of them were in the top 5 in the league, in our opinion.

  11. 40 on November 25th, 2010 10:30 pm

    Hey Bryan, I really think you missed on not including my uncles cousin first nephew from my mamas side on the 1st team defense. Everyone who knows anything about gshl football can see he was the best tackler since joe montana.

  12. GSHL all the way! on November 25th, 2010 10:34 pm

    Uhhh 40? That made NO sense.

  13. donkeyshow on November 25th, 2010 10:49 pm

    Haha waterboy reference. I like it!

  14. CR Truth Teller on November 26th, 2010 2:51 pm

    Congrats to the kids selected to the GSHL Football.com all league team. And to those are whining about your kid not making the OL all league, how about this number. Camas scored roughly 245pts while River scored 165pts. I know that the offense didn’t score every single point but roughly an 80 point difference? That is a line that can open up holes and protect the pocket. You don’t see any Hudson Bay athletes and one Fort Vancouver athlete and zero Prairie athletes. I watched the Avi (I think that is how you spell his name) kid from Prairie torch Columbia River and he was pretty darn good. Was he the top 2 in the county? I didn’t see enough games overall to make that decision. Brian and his staff go to a lot of these games and at least he picks 11 and 11 unlike the All-League team selected by the coaches who pick 16 and 14. That started a few years ago and takes the prestige of All-League away. You have 11 so pick 11.

  15. AllLevel123 on November 26th, 2010 3:24 pm

    I assume the All Level All Stars will be released this upcoming week?

  16. May Day the Hiander on November 26th, 2010 11:50 pm

    I think the 3-A all league team was picked extremely accurately. Notice Camas had bu far the most players selected,followed by Mt. View and then Kelso. Look who the top three teams in the league were and how they finished. The proof is in the pudding

  17. May Day the Hilander on November 26th, 2010 11:59 pm

    So…which teams have the most returning starters next season? I know Kelso has very few but the two sophomore players they will have back will be fun to watch Cheney and Radcliff.

  18. wsumj on November 28th, 2010 3:17 pm

    Tough team to pick. Kyle Ervin could easily be on this list from Camas. Also Prairie had 3 pretty solid WRs. If I remember correctly, they are all returning next year.

  19. Scotty Pride on November 28th, 2010 7:32 pm

    May Day- Cheney is a senior.

  20. Gage Townsend on November 29th, 2010 9:59 am

    40- that sums up pretty much what everything that people say. hahaha the post made my day

  21. Green and Gold on November 29th, 2010 9:33 pm

    WOW! How could it be Grindy. No offense but P.J. Jones was the most consistent and had some amazing games. Or also Zack Marshall or Collin Sietz. He is a great quarterback, he just didn’t do as hot as these players did.

  22. Bryan Levesque on November 30th, 2010 1:34 am

    Green and Gold – WOW! Thanks for letting us know how you feel. P.J. had a very good season for sure, that is why he was on our 1st team O. However, he did miss the Fort game after he was banged up the week before vs Union, a game in which he had 6 runs for 9 yards. Zack did have a great season, and did finish 2nd for O POY, however he was 3rd in the league in rushing behind Jones and Kawawaki. Sietz also had a very good season. He was second in the 3A GSHL in passing yards, completions, completion %, touchdowns, passing yards per game, and QB rating. The thing is he was second to Grindy in all 6 of those categories. Those are just a few reasons why Logan was selected as the O POY. However, the cool thing is that there were plenty of players this season who all could have a solid argument as to why they could have been selected. That is always good for the league, and good for us fans! But at the end of the day, only 1 player can be picked, and we picked Logan.

  23. Gamer on November 30th, 2010 1:48 pm

    Bryan its not all about stats, i have even spoken to CAMAS players and they even agreed that PJ Jones should have been the Offensive player of the year, if it wasnt for PJ mt view wouldnt of been the same team unlike camas which was carried by there defense most of the year and proved that they could win with or without grindy.

  24. Bryan Levesque on November 30th, 2010 2:02 pm

    Well, like I said above, ” the cool thing is that there were plenty of players this season who all could have a solid argument as to why they could have been selected. That is always good for the league, and good for us fans!” What you are explaining for P.J. sounds like a MVP award. We don’t give out a MVP. That has always been a topic of conversation for all sports fans anyways. Is the MVP the best player, or the player who meant the most to his team? P.J. did have a huge season, but one could also argue that Reynolds and Carmody did quite well themselves. In the 1 game Jones missed Reynolds and Carmody combined for 4 TD’s. I am not saying that P.J. was not the MVP of his team, let alone the MVP of the 3A, just making a point that you can make an argument either way. Hey, maybe that is why I run this site, so fans like you and me and others can talk about football! :-)

  25. Gage townsend on November 30th, 2010 2:18 pm

    you guys are rediculous he makes the decisions that HE thinks are right. it kinda is HIS site:)

  26. Gage townsend on November 30th, 2010 2:24 pm

    and when is the allstar list going too come out?

  27. Great Season All Around on November 30th, 2010 3:57 pm

    I will take this thread a step further since we are having this debated conversation all in good jest mind you. In my opinion, Zach Marshall meant more to his team than say Grindy or Jones from Mt. View. I know what you are thinking but hear me out as I pointed this out earlier this season and Bryan can confirm that.

    No one, and I repeat NO ONE thought Zach Marshall would have the tremendous impact he had with Camas this season, not even his coach. While Owen filled in admirably during the playoff game, Zach brings a different dimension with his running style that can’t be replaced. Gennaro was able to maintain at the QB position in the absence of Grindy and played well also. At Mt. View, as a collective group, Jones, Reynolds, Carmody and Peterson were all able to contribute at times and maintain the effectiveness of their run game when one or the other was out or not producing.

    I believe it was Marshall’s effectiveness (run or pass) that had an impact on Grindy’s continued success this season. Let’s face it, Marshall changed field position for his team in many ways, not just from the RB position. The game of football is ALL about field position. You try to gain it, defend it, sustain it and mark your territory as the dominant force on the grid iron, period! In that regard, Zach Marshall meant the most to his team in my eyes this season.

    It is fun to watch all the players and debate who should have, could have or would have but in the grand scheme of things, it is about the players and the hard work, committment and dedication they bring to the sport. Let’s also not forget about the tremendous players who are not as fortunate as these players we are debating that also mean allot to their teams but get no recognition due to lack of program support and their involvement with perennial losers.

    Keep up the great coverage of GSHL Football Bryan and it is your site, thus, your picks!
