Game Recap – Skyview 34 Kentwood 7

Written by Bryan Levesque on November 12, 2011

Skyview was one fumble away from a shutout in their dominating 34-7 home win over Kentwood Friday Night at Boggs Field. Skyview RB Parker Henry ran in a pair of opening quarter touchdowns form 1 and 6 yards out to give Skyview an early 14-0 lead. In the second quarter, a Henry fumble was returned 42 yards by Kentwood defender Jackson Huerta for the Conquers only points of the night. In the second half, Storm QB Kieran McDonagh threw a pair of touchdowns, 8 yards to Mo Morrison and 3 yards to Reiley Henderson. Forrest Russell returned an interception 47 yards for a touchdown in between the McDonagh touchdowns as well. Henry did a lot of the Storm’s work between the 20′s as the state’s 4A leading rusher ran for 182 yards on 26 carries with the two touchdown runs. McDonagh finished the night with 319 yards passing and the two passing scores on 20 of 24 passing. Henderson led the receivers with 7 catches for 117 yards, while Russell added 5 for 91 yards. Kentwood RB Matt Hubbard ran for 123 yards on 22 carries but was unable to score.

Skyview improves their record to 9-2 on the season with the win. The Storm will host the winner of Saturdays game between Edmonds-Woodway (6-4) and #1 Bellarmine Prep (10-0) at Kiggins Bowl Friday or Saturday, time TBD in the Quarterfinals of the WIAA State Playoffs.

    Far too much emphasis on the polls and rankings…none of it matters…WIN and everything else will take care of itself! The kids really dont care anyway. I like the chances for the GSHL BIG 3.

    Union seems to be peaking at the right time and dont forget that staff has serious playoff experience and a state champion coach at the helm to go with their belief in each other.

    Camas is just as good as the majority the 4A playoff field and will be challenged only by Bellevue…if they get a break or two along the way the could take it to the house and come back from Tacoma with the ring.

    The line play is about as good as it gets at the HS level, the speed that Skyview has is tough to match and their skill guys are very very good. they are too dependent on Henry and their screen game needs more down field routes to keep it effective.

    However, their play calling is way too simplistic and predictable as an offense and their LB play still is their weak spot on defense. Now we get to find out just how good the GSHL really is this year in what appears to be a down year across the state…good luck next week to each of the Big 3!

    I wouldn’t say the Storm rely too much on Parker. If you have that kind of stud, you use it. The Storm had their second straight game of having 300+ yards passing. I’d say they’ve had a pretty balanced attack so far and have done a great job getting all their great athletes at the skill positions involved.

    Congrats on the big wins to Skyview, Union, and Camas for putting the hurt on the teams from up North. Congrats to MV on a good season as well.

    4:59. Listen to the Kentwood coach in the press box. “Get him Quincy. Nooo. You’re sh***ing me. No way.” HAHAHAHA

  4. Bryan Levesque on November 12th, 2011 1:05 pm

    no, he said “your Shiping me”

  5. Y'All Funny on November 12th, 2011 5:51 pm

    Actually they do because he plays full-time on Defense too…all he does is have collision after collision after collision. They over-used & actually mis-used the older henderson while he was there too…it takes its toll especially in the combination that parker experiences!

    So its ok if they just use him up right now? Is that what your saying? I dont agree at all. That kid is putting miles on his body that he wont ever get back right now in HS…He’s not a D1 running back but definitely has the potential to play a weakside backer

    They’re offensive scheme is “balanced” but my concern is…theres not a lot of balance in the play calling and not alot of creativity…no motion…no misdirection…no play action…poor kicking game!

  7. What You Talkin' Bout Willis? on November 13th, 2011 9:19 am

    @Y’All Funny – I agree with you to a point. They do rely on Henry to bring it on both sides of the ball, and I am in no way saying that they should use him up right now. Skyview doesn’t have a Gabe Rego/Brody-Heim combo to lean on. I think Skyview’s second best runner is McDonagh and it seems they are letting run more as well (too bad those runs got called back, he could have had over a 100 yards rushing too).

    That being said, Parker doesn’t have nearly as many miles as his stats indicate. For over half the season Skyview has routed teams and most of their first string guys didn’t see much second half play. Heck, even Henry didn’t play most of the second half against Issaquah. I feel the coaches did a good job of resting and not using up its players during the season, but in the playoffs you rely on your talent to make plays. I don’t think any of these Seniors will complain about their playing time. For the Seniors, this is their last shot and it seems to me Skyview could be on the verge of something special.

    I agree with you on the play calling though. A month or two ago, I expressed my concern that all these screen passes and other plays were almost too predictable. I suggested maybe opening up the playbook and throw down field more because the deeper you go into the playoffs the more discipline the defenses are and the harder it is to move the ball. But hey, they’re attack worked against good opponents in Camas, Union, Issaquah, and Kentwood, so it’s hard to fault it. Hopefully they bring it next week against Bellarmine Prep.

    Bryan…”your shipping me?”.. I thought I heard him say, “oh no, that sack we missed just turned into a large gain, fiddle sticks…”

    Ha! Shut the front door!

  9. ExpandGSHL on November 13th, 2011 4:18 pm

    Perhaps all of you sideline coaches should apply for the jobs that are always open at Fort, Bay, and BG. You can take you talent at play calling and playing time management and turn a program around.

    GOOD LUCK TO CAMAS, UNION AND THE STORM!!

  10. What You Talkin' Bout Willis? on November 13th, 2011 7:23 pm

    Haha I was just defending my points. Whatever these teams are doing is clearly working. Go Storm, Union, and Camas! Keep making SW Washington proud.

  12. Trapper Fan on November 14th, 2011 8:42 am

    Tired of Coach bashing around here! Some people just don’t get it and think you can take a lower team here and magically win just because of coaching. Look at a couple of lower teams to prove you wrong. Fort has been bad for many years. Coach Cal came here after taking several teams to playoffs elsewhere. Couldn’t get Fort to win in 4 years. He leaves, goes to another school and gets back into the playoffs his first year. Did he suddenly learn how to coach again? No. It is the administrations in the schools that need to support the athletes! Same thing with Battle Ground’s coach a few years ago. He can’t win there, but leaves and goes up north and wins! Camas, Skyview, Union and even Mt. View have adminstrative support for athletics and it shows as many sports are strong. Yes the coaches are good (but there aren’t many coaches out there that are not good!). If the coaches are hired without any support from the top, they will only be good when that one special class comes through. With support, they can build a program. Anyone who believes otherwise is blowing smoke! Look at the Trappers this year: 0 for football, girls soccer and volleyball! Not a single win! Is that all bad coaching, or is it a by product of leadership not supporting (or caring enough)? Untill school leadership actually gets behind the kids and not lip service, then victories will be few and far between for some of these schools.

    When Bob Holman came to Camas they had just completed a 0-9 season. He started by looking at the team and changed the behavior of the program from a laid back approach to a hard nose team. Many players and coaches didn’t like his approach and quit. They struggled for three more years while learning a new approach. Coach Holman payed a great deal of time with the CCYF players and the Junior High Skyridge program. He started building for the future. More kids than ever before started playing at an earlier age. Soccer only players started putting football into their schedule. We went from a 30 men turnout to 150 player turn out. They built 0 period for off season workouts, a full time nutritionist to watch their diets. Better facilities to train in. But most of all a positive attitude that is present today do to Coach Holman. Coach Eagle has gone one step further by turning this program from a top two or three in league to a state level competitor. Fort and Bay if given similar goals could easily turn around the program.

  16. GSHL Football Fan 2011 on November 14th, 2011 12:05 pm

    John-

    Fort & Bay do not have the bandwidth, student population or demographics to turn those types of programs into state level competitors. You obviously sound like you know what it entails to reach such a level and schools like Camas, Skyview & Union are reaching new heights within their programs due to the opportunities that exist. I could go on about the specifics but I’m sure you understand what I’m trying to convey. The picture at Fort & Bay is on a much smaller scale and focus should be on moral, player turnout and adequate coaching at all levels internally.

  17. justagymteacher on November 14th, 2011 12:24 pm

    I hear all the talk about administation, coaching, and local support. The last time I checked good players make good coaches, local support and happy administrations. I do have to admitt good players win most of the time. But to go deep in the playoffs you need great coaching, good players, and a little luck…
    Camas, Union, and Skyview are good: probably has some economics involved also.
    Fort, Bay, it also could be arugued the other direction.

    I moved to area back when Camas was Horrible.. Early 90′s. Then the population growth with parents who care and had money. Ten years later, good in all sports. Wow rocket science.

  18. ChrisH on November 14th, 2011 4:22 pm

    I think at the NFL and College level, having good players is the majority of how well a team does. But in highschool players are obviously important to winning, but having a good coaching staff makes and motivates average players into becoming better players.

    I think that if a successful coaching staff goes to a school like bay or fort then within a few years there will be success. There would be limitations in poorer areas, but any team could become an above average team.

  19. John on November 14th, 2011 4:38 pm

    It takes years, even generations to build a program and if you don’t start somewhere it will remain the same year after year.

  20. gshltruth on November 14th, 2011 5:19 pm

    Gym teacher-
    You nailed it- About the time Holman came in the demographics of Camas changed. Not to take anything away from coach Holman he did a great job getting Camas rolling, but it helps to have supportive parents and money. Would the staffs at Union, Skyview, Camas win at Bay/Fort- maybe more than the coaches who are coming an going, but they would struggle there as well. Bay and Fort are a unique situation- they are in a district that has 2 strong programs in it- Much like Heritage and Evergreen these days. If you put bay or fort in a single district, or in a district with moslty below average teams, those staffs would make an immediate impact. But don’t forget those schools are dealing with all the kids that don’t want to wait, and decide Skyview/Union are a better option.

  21. John on November 14th, 2011 8:53 pm

    ArchBishop Murphy has 426 students which is a 1A level school but they compete and win state championships in 2A. They were the only team other than Camas to beat Kennedy this year. A good coaching staff is everything in football. I believe Washougal is going to get better every year do to that coaching staff. Good coaches build on success and create momentum for future teams.

  22. Truth Teller on November 14th, 2011 10:27 pm

    John – True what you said about ABM’s enrollment size and playing classification. However you overlooked a very important item. Archbishop Thomas J. Murphy High School is a co-educational PRIVATE Catholic college-preparatory high school. Another example of a private school would be about 25 miles across the river. Maybe everyone has heard of a little school with I would guess 1,100 students called Jesuit and another 900 student school called Central Catholic which both play on the 6A OSAA which is from 1400-3100 student population. Yes, the kids have stricter academic requirements to not only stay sport eligible but also school eligible. However, private schools have NO boundary lines when it comes to students and “scholarships” available to those students who qualify. I just wonder what King’s Way in Vancouver is going to look like in 8-10 years after some alumni and booster funding. They are private and if they get a few state runs under their belt, whats not to stop top tier athletes in all sports from getting a high education and a few state titles on their resumes.

  23. Truth Teller on November 14th, 2011 10:33 pm

    I almost forgot of Seton Catholic as well over in East Vancouver. Imagine the talent on that side of 205 who could play on one team.

  24. wsumj on November 14th, 2011 10:45 pm

    Washougal is getting better. And I am not surprised… Take a look at the development out there… New houses, new money… Just like Camas.
    Hockinson is the same way.

    I am not doubting that coaches build a successful program. Look at Bellevue. 9 state championships in the last 10 (or is it 11?) years. That’s all done with a different group of seniors every year. Some of those kids have won 3, possibly, 4 state championships.

  25. notsofast on November 14th, 2011 10:54 pm

    “It takes years, even generations to build a program and if you don’t start somewhere it will remain the same year after year.”

    …… unless youre union and it takes absolutely no time at all :)

  26. 40 on November 14th, 2011 11:01 pm

    ABM is a private school and can recruit players. That example doesn’t really work in this situation.

  27. FB Fan on November 15th, 2011 12:02 am

    ArchBishop Murphy is a private school like Jesuit and is able to recruit.

  28. Tiannam on November 15th, 2011 12:35 am

    I agree with John. After losing to Lakes in 2010 I looked over to my friend and said that this was the farthest Camas would ever go.. This was the BEST team we would ever have… and let’s be honest, Camas 2010 talent was greater than 2011.

    Now I realize it’s all about the coaches. When I look down at the Camas coaches during the games it’s amazing. They’re intense, yelling at their players, motivating them the ENTIRE game.. even when blowing a team out. They’re coaching as if they were losing all the time. The team consistently runs high-percentage plays. I love it. Building a program that will always be dominant. That will always go far in the playoffs. Camas football is entering a new level of play… All thanks to the coaches.

  29. Observer on November 15th, 2011 7:39 am

    Seems like things began to change at Camas when Milt Dennison became Supt. Several administrations prior didn’t place an emphasis on HS athletics and it showed. The change in demographics certainly played into things and an almost “perfect storm” has turned Camas around not just in sports but in all student activities. Exciting times for sure.

  30. Observer on November 15th, 2011 7:42 am

    No intention of slighting Mike Nerland, the current Camas Supt., the support from the current administration has continued at Camas quite nicely.

  31. John on November 15th, 2011 11:17 am

    All your comments are all worth reading however I do disagree that private institutions have an edge. If it was so then the private schools would always dominate and they don’t. For every one private school success there are 10 public schools doing just as good if not better in the sports department, academically private schools do better because more kids are sent to private schools for the academic programs and success of the institutions. Parents have to pay to send there kids to Private schools so sports is usually not the reason for going to a private institution. Not only that but if I’m not Catholic why would I send my son there. ArchBishop Murphy is only one example of a private school success. I made the point that it is the coaching that turned that program into a success not the fact that it is a private institution.

  32. TWOJ on November 15th, 2011 11:57 am

    Skyview’s records Kizer’s first two years there were something like 3-7 both years. His third year? 11-1. No one was new, no one transferred in, and Skyview beat the #1 team in the state almost the entire year, Puyallup, in the first round. That team was also the first team whose seniors had been with Kize all 4 years. (He was D coordinator for a year). Coincidence? Nope. He changed the entire landscape of Skyview football. He started traditions like NBLC, the victory bell, and he gave us a fight song. As football players, we weren’t that cool and people didn’t care but in 2006 we started getting mobbed on the field and there were always a bunch of people hootin and hollerin when we got back to the school on the buses. Thats when we rang the victory bell. We were loved all of sudden. It was kind of overwhelming honestly, but it was AWESOME. Coaches are important. Very important. I think that any former player who went through a coaching change would agree with me.

  33. 40 on November 15th, 2011 12:02 pm

    Is this the1st year our posts are being moderated for approval before they are posted? I cant remember, but it is killing discussion on this board. There could have been some back and forth on this topic last night, but everyone put in one post and they didn’t even get posted until who knows when. Love the site and please dont’ take this as personal bryan, I’m just curious about the process.

  34. Bryan Levesque on November 15th, 2011 12:12 pm

    yes, I had to change that mid-season after too many people were taking advantage of it. Some people associated with a few schools feel the need to bring other players/schools down and complain about people leaving their school instead of just taking about how their players have done good things. Last night was too bad, i fell asleep at 930pm… some days i just fall asleep. I will think about giving it another go… I have blocked a lot of IP’s lately, so maybe things will be better.

  35. 40 on November 15th, 2011 12:27 pm

    sleeping!? sleeping!?! theres no sleeping during playoff time! sleeping!

  36. Bryan Levesque on November 15th, 2011 12:38 pm

    that’s the problem, I don’t sleep much, then some days i just fall asleep and there is nothing i can do about it.

  37. 40 on November 15th, 2011 12:54 pm

    I don’t think anyone who really knows HS sports really thinks that it is only coaching, or only the athletes, or only the adminitstrative support, or only the economic makeup of the school that determines the success of a program. These factors and more all go into the success of the program. There are some factors though that seem to weigh a little more heavily though. In regards to your post twoj, I to think Kizer is a phenomenal coach, but if he had taken over fort instead of skyview when he did, the real life factors surrounding that program would not have allowed him to build a ‘winning’ program. I think Eagle said it best in the papers a few weeks ago. In places like camas, skyview and union most kids arent having to worry about basic living essentials and can focus on becoming top notch atheletes, while at the bays and forts of the world, alot of kids are just tryin to get by.

  38. John on November 15th, 2011 4:41 pm

    I grew up in the inner city of Portland, I know and have seen the influence good Coaches have on poor kids. Many of whom have never had a dad or a good mentor to teach them simple moral issues. So many of the coaches in Football and Basketball become like fathers to these young men. Sports also gives them an escape from the real world for awhile. I have seen success at poor schools like Jefferson, and Roosevelt HS’s. I know that alot of these kids at Fort and Bay have other issues on their plate but Sports gives them a release that may otherwise be sent toward crime or other bad behavior. I wish Vancouver School district would devote more time and money toward their sports program. It could very easily change the future of so many youth.

  39. gshlfan on November 15th, 2011 6:36 pm

    Can you kill this conversation on the skyview game recap. Lets talk some playoffs and the games coming up! Whats going to happen this weekend???

  40. Truth Teller on November 15th, 2011 6:52 pm

    John, I agree and disagree with your statements about private schools. I would invite you to venture on National Football Champions. They are a majority private schools and mostly from the New England states. The longest high school winning streak (151) is De La Salle of California. Yep, a PRIVATE school. Notable football alumni Aaron Taylor, Amani Toomer, DJ Williams, Maurice Jones-Drew, and as reported by ESPN, MJD did not come from a privileged background. However you do get some public inner city type schools that win as well. Long Beach Poly, West Monroe (LA). I do agree that VSD, ESD and all the other districts should put in more money to bring down the cost to play so maybe more kids can play more than one sport and not limited by the economics of it. Same goes for funding for band, etc. Someone correct me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t the schools receive some type of profit sharing or extra money from state championship playoff gate fee’s?

  41. Ro' on November 16th, 2011 11:20 am

    Looking forward to seeing the Storm family this weekend…looking for a big win! Do what you guys do until someone stops it…then & ONLY then should you adjust.
    However, we do need to be prepared for gametime adjustments when necessary…

    Good luck to Union & Camas too, GO STORM!
