The latest news and analysis on high-school sports around the Seattle area

Some links and notes

Check out this video from neighboring Idaho. The cheap shot you see was a couple weeks ago by a Pocatello player on Highland kicker/quarterback Taysom Hill, a Stanford commit and 4-star recruit according to his Scout.com profile.

Crosstown rival Pocatello kept unnecessarily hitting Hill after kickoffs (obviously part of the gameplan), and the dirty play put Pocatello coach Tom Harrison in hot water after the school received numerous complaints. The team was never penalized on the field, but Harrison was placed on administrative leave by the district and suspended for one game.

This weekend he’ll return to the sidelines. Any thoughts?

Here are some other links to keep busy:

  • Did you see the video of an Oregon ref being hit by a runaway golf cart? Yikes.

  • Here’s a cool story about a kid with a rare disease fulfilling his dream to be a football player as a kicker.

  • Inglemoor kicker and soccer stud Anthony Arena has been selected to the U.S. national under-20 soccer team and will train in Madrid in November to prepare for the CONCACAF Under-20 World Cup qualifying in early 2009. The US Soccer website also has a great story on fellow national team soccer player Kate Bennett and her charity work. Bennett’s team opens up play in the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup today.

  • A team of nine Seattle-area kids will compete in the 2008 USTA Jr. Team Tennis National Championships in Mobile, Alabama, starting tomorrow until November 2. Here are the members of the team coached by Matt Look that I hear is called the “Hungry Hippos”: Natalie Allen, Jason Bediones, Andrew La Cava, Hallie Martin, Shuhei Matsuya, Stephen Perkins, Kimberly Quach, Rachel Storz and Garrett Vincent.

  • In your weekly national football rankings, Skyline is ranked 8th in USA Today, 15th in the Rivals 100 (Bellevue is 66th) and 13th in ESPN’s poll (with the Wolverines 50th).

  • In ESPN’s national soccer rankings, Beamer is 14th — though they’ll likely fall after last night’s 1-0 loss to Graham-Kapowsin — and Kentwood at No. 45.
