Root Sports will be televising a prep football Game of the Week for the second season in a row — starting with that blockbuster Skyline-Bellevue showdown at Husky Stadium on Sept. 7 (although that one will be tape-delayed).
Here is the complete press release and schedule:
ROOT SPORTS™ announced today that a second season of the High School Football “Game of the Week” will return this fall and will feature new presenting sponsor, Papa Murphy’s. The season kicks off on Saturday, September 7th with a clash of titans when 3A State Champions, Bellevue High School, takes on 4A State Champions, Skyline High School, at Husky Stadium. Following the Saturday opener, High School Football on ROOT SPORTS will move to its usual Thursday night schedule and will include nine regular season games along with WIAA District Playoffs and 3A and 4A Championship games.
The slate of games will be known as the ROOT SPORTS High Football “Game of the Week” presented by Papa Murphy’s will feature teams from throughout the Seattle/Tacoma area. Games will air on Thursday evenings at 7:00pm PT and will be shown throughout ROOT SPORTS Northwest’s five state region. Each game of the week will have a debut airing, as well as at least one replay.
“We were very pleased with the response to our inaugural season of High School Game of the week and are excited to continue the endeavor. This season promises to be exciting with a line-up that includes KingCo, SPSL, Seamount, Narrows, Cascade, Evergreen and Metro schools,” stated Mark Jorgensen, ROOT SPORTS Senior Vice President/General Manager.
Brad Adam will provide play-by-play and work with analyst, Jason Stiles. Adam has been with ROOT SPORTS since June 2000, and in his current role provides the sights and sounds before and after every Mariners game as the Host of Mariners Pregame and Mariners Postgame. Stiles joined the ROOT SPORTS team following a successful football career; he has worked as a Pac-12 and high school analyst, and will serve in the same capacity for Big Sky Conference football this season.

Bellevue’s Myles Jack is apparently making his presence felt at UCLA as a true freshman.
You can read a little about his progress here.

I want to share a few thoughts with you on the state girls basketball draws, particularly 4A and 3A.
We’ll have a lot on the tournaments this week in the newspaper, on the web and in the blog. This is just to get the conversation started.
The quarterfinal game I’m most axious to see: No. 1 Mount Rainier vs. No. 5 Inglemoor.
That’s a tough “opener” for both teams. Earlier this season, the Vikings were ranked as high as No. 3. Coach John Augustavo believes his team is playing as well as anyone and had this to say after drawing the top-ranked Rams: “Bring it on. We’re ready.”
With a little encouragement, he admits he is confident about Inglemoor’s chances this week.
“I think we can win this thing,” he said.
The Vikings will have a size advantage with 6-4 Deja’ Strother and four others 6-foot or better. Mount Rainier’s tallest players are Brittany McPhee and Emily Fiso, both 6-0. Of course, McPhee is a crafty player who finds lots of ways to score against players of all sizes. But this will be a challenge.

Before I head out to cover a couple of regional boys basketball games, I wanted to share some thoughts in Friday’s girls games.
There were some great ones!
One I wish I had been there for: Kentwood’s double-overtime victory over third-ranked Lynnwood, 61-60. On paper, this looks like the biggest upset of the night. However, I said going in that I expected it to be an entertaining game. I gave Lynnwood the edge, but the Conquerors have proven they can hang with anyone when they play well together, which they did again Friday. You can read the game story here.
Another I would have loved to watch: Bellevue’s 58-51 come-from-behind victory over top-ranked Prairie, last year’s 3A champion. The Falcons won’t be in the final eight for the first time since 1997, when they failed to qualify for state. What a great victory for the young Wolverines! You can read about it here.
Then there was Holy Names’ heartbreaking loss to University of Spokane, in overtime. The Cougars were oh-so-close to getting back to Tacoma. That game story is here. And there was another 3A thriller between No. 4 Seattle Prep and No. 10 Stanwood. The Panthers pulled that one out, 44-43, and you can read more here, where there is also mention of Cleveland’s lopsided victory over Kelso.
