Class 4A and 3A state football rankings — Week 8

Only one ranked team lost this week and, since Eastlake fell to the top-ranked team in the state, there are no changes.

In Class 4A a very strong case can certainly be made for Olympia and Rogers (Puyallup) to get one of the last spots. However, based on the strength of the KingCo this year, it’s tough to drop Eastlake or Issaquah.

Two weeks ago, it took three overtimes for the Wolves to beat the Eagles and, on Friday night, Eastlake played Skyline about as well as anyone has all year.

It hurts the Eagles that quarterback Ethan Kalin suffered an elbow injury against Newport, which will likely end his season. But Braden Bouwman filled in admirably.

Some are wondering why the Spartans continue to stay at No. 1 with one loss. Well, through eight games they have played five ranked teams and will take on No. 3 Bothell next week.

So, despite all of Curtis’ lopsided results, I think Skyline has earned the lofty ranking.

In 3A, Bellevue remains No. 1. The Wolverines are dealing with some injuries, but have a lot of running backs capable of gaining yardage in their wing-T system. Bellevue dealt with injuries last season and still won the state title.

Capital’s 44-0 win over Timberline was impressive and Camas has been good all year, but the Wolverines maintain the top spot.
