Erik Wiker, 16th season

103-52 record

RETURNING STARTERS

Offense – 3. Defense – 8.

TOP OFFENSIVE PLAYERS

TE Hayden Eaton, 6-4, 205, jr.

OL Late Mote, 5-9, 185, jr.

RB Walker Ward, 6-0, 160, jr.

QB Taig Wiker, 5-10, 185, jr.

THREE TO SEE

Lane Mote, linebacker

Tireless two-year starter is one of better middle linebackers in league

Taig Wiker, quarterback

Expected to run more than graduated record-holder Riley Cowan

Michael Young, wide receiver

Team’s new quarterback will soon learn this is most reliable target

OUTLOOK

It was a fantastic four-year run by two-time Olympic League player of the year Riley Cowan (school-record 6,700 passing yards), capped last season by the school’s first league crown since 2011.

But don’t expect that run to end now, especially with all the juniors the Wolves have in the fold, especially on defense.

Taig Wiker was a 1,100-yard rusher at tailback last season, but will move over to replace Cowan. Wiker has shown a surprisingly apt arm in spring workouts, but will undoubtedly be utilized more on designed runs this season.

Sequim will have more two-way starters than in years past, but this talented group is capable of running the league for the next couple of seasons.
