Bellevue football adds tough out-of-state opponent

Bellevue has established itself as the premier football team in the northwest. The Wolverines have reached unprecedented marks with six straight state titles — and 11 out of 13 — and 54 consecutive games won.

During that span, though, Bellevue has never shied away from a challenge.

Following that theme, the 2014 schedule just got a lot more difficult.

Bellevue will host Alta (Utah) on Sept. 13. Alta finished last season 5-6, but ranked No.9 in the state after its losses came to the top teams in Utah. Wolverines coach Butch Goncharoff said the agreement is almost complete and will happen unless something unforeseen occurs.

Bellevue faces nationally-ranked Serra (Calif.) the week before in The Honor Bowl in San Diego. Goncharoff said Bellevue had an open date it needed to fill, and although he ideally wouldn’t have his team face tough out-of-state opponents in back-to-back weeks, the schedules aligned for the two teams.
