Steve Chmiel joins Mercer Island staff and other notes

Former Skyline defensive coordinator Steve Chmiel will coach cornerbacks at Mercer Island next season, Islanders coach Brett Ogata said Thursday.

Chmiel led the Spartans’ defense the past three seasons.

While I was talking to Ogata, he said the Islanders will travel to Idaho Sept. 8 to play Coeur d’Alene.

The Vikings won the Idaho Class 5A state title last season, finishing the season ranked No. 16 in the USA Today Super 25. The news was posted on Twitter last month, but I wanted to make sure a note made it to the blog as well.

The Islanders will take both their varsity and JV to Idaho and play a doubleheader.

There is one other piece of news out of Mercer Island’s football program. Kicker Alex Wood is heading to USC as a preferred walk-on next season. Again, this news has already made the rounds on Twitter, but since I was posting Mercer Island news I wanted to make sure I included this.
