Our 2019 Washington high school football preview continues with a team-by-team look at the 3A Metro League.

Eastside Catholic, the defending 3A state champion, brings back most of its vaunted defense and the most Division I talent of any team in the state. At the top of that list is J.T. Tuimolaou, the consensus No. 1 player in the nation in the class of 2021.

Scroll down for our projected order of finish, links to 3A Metro team previews, players to watch and games to see.
