THREE TO SEE

Isaac Ciccone, defensive lineman

Team’s most versatile pass rusher was once a non-athlete roaming school hallways

KeeKee McQueen, running back

His father runs area’s youth programs, so he knows offensive schemes to perfection

Deonte Hayes, wide receiver

Mixes boundless natural ability with endless work on route-running; a breakout star

OUTLOOK

Sometimes when son (Cameron) takes over the reins from dad (former longtime coach John Robak), things can get sideways.

But the younger Robak, a former quarterback at Stadium, has injected new energy into this untapped program.

McQueen is quickly establishing himself as one of the quick risers in the state, and will be all over the field for the Sentinels on offense as their top big-play tailback.

Hayes isn’t far behind in talent, and like McQueen, is a natural leader. The question is — who will get them the football?

Right now, Spanaway Lake has three quarterbacks still in the mix for the starting job — senior Kain Montero, junior Braden Robinson and ninth grader James Dempsey, who appears to be the future at the position with his talent and acumen.
