1. Jake Heaps, Skyline. Went 20-for-26 for 322 yards and four passing touchdowns, and he added a rushing score. Only perhaps his effort in last year’s state championship game could rival this one, as he showed why so many great Division I schools want him. In the second quarter, Heaps had Issaquah’s Ryan Tiernan about to tackle him, and basically from his own end zone, Heaps threw a perfect pass to William Chandler that went 55-60 yards in the air. Chandler, running a wheel route, got past the safety and the pass hit him right in stride.
High school quarterbacks aren’t supposed to make that pass.
2. T.J. Lee, West Seattle. Took 20 carries for 222 yards and two touchdowns in a 20-16 win against Rainier Beach. So the Wildcats clinched the Metro Sound’s top seed, and they’ll see Eastside Catholic, which won the Mountain division with a 17-14 win against O’Dea, in two weeks in the Metro title game.
3. Aaron Frye, Cascade.It’s about time we mentioned Frye, who seems like he goes over 200 yards each week. In a 26-7 win against Shorewood, Frye ran for 247 yards on 21 carries and scored from 70 and 67 yards. He’s putting together a solid season, and Cascade remains in good position for a playoff spot.
