Weekend football guide

All of a sudden, it’s Friday again. We’ll give you an aid of what to expect and look for among this weekend’s games. But first, here’s what you missed last night.

– All sorts of passing records were broken last night down south as Tahoma’s Amandre Williams threw for 579 yards in his second career start, the second-best state mark for an 11-man football game. Brett Rypien of Shadle Park holds the record (613 in 2013). Rypien also tossed for 577 yards in a game in 2012. Williams also unofficially broke the 4A South SPSL record in Tahoma’s 48-41 win over Rogers. Griffin Stacy¬†also had a career night throwing the football for Rogers, as did his go-to target Kyler Ooley. Todd Milles of The News Tribune has it all.

– In other scores from last night: Kentlake 56, Decatur 36; Eastlake 33, Inglemoor 10; Tumwater 35, Timberline 33.

– Nice story from TJ Cotterril of the News Tribune on two first-year head coaches that were together last year as assistants at UPS.

– As we look ahead to tonight, our Game of the Week is Marysville-Pilchuck at Lake Stevens. Here is the Herald’s take on the game.

Doug Drowley will be at Redmond-Mount Si, Matt Massey will be at Seattle Prep-Kennedy and I’ll be up at the Marysville-Pilchuck-Lake Stevens game.

– Aside from the games we’re covering, keep an eye on a top-10 matchup between Federal Way and Camas. New to the No. 2 spot in the rankings, Skyline looks to impress against a good Newport team.

On Saturday, Bellevue hosts Alta (Utah). And, of course, the Memorial Football Classic will be played all weekend at Memorial Stadium to celebrate the reunification of the Metro League and raise funds for athletics transportation.
