THREE TO SEE

Eladio Fountain, quarterback

He’s started at quarterback in all four years of high school, and will be hard to bring down this year at 250 pounds.

James Huffman, offensive line / linebacker

All-league middle linebacker in 2018.

Markus Selzler, running back / defensive lineman

Two-time first team all-league guy, powerful player on both sides of the ball.

OUTLOOK

This veteran crew will look to bounce back from their 2018 week 10 loss to state powerhouse Bellevue, with heaps of all-league talent at their disposal.

Head coach Brandon Christensen enters his 10th season at the helm for Shorecrest, telling Scorebook Live that “this team has the most experience of any team [he’s] coached in [his] 10 years”. 

This is one of the more physically imposing teams in 3A, with multiple guys weighing in at over 250 pounds.

Their league schedule is chock-full of talent, which means they’ll have to fight week in and week out to have a shot at another week 10 birth.

Coach Christensen is excited for the challenge given his “excellent mix of juniors and seniors that play well together.”
