THREE TO SEE

Brayden Castilla, defensive lineman

Best of senior-dominant line, he anchors defense with brute strength, edgy attitude

Kolby Solomon, quarterback

His dual-threat success might have been a surprise to 4A KingCo coaches, but not his

Trevor Thurman, linebacker

Fourth-year starter has ranked No. 1 or 2 in total tackles in league past two seasons

OUTLOOK

One of the most under-appreciated coaching jobs in the state came from this school last season as one of its alums — Steve Hannan — directed the Vikings to their first winning season since 2011 after winning three games total in a four-year stretch (2014-17).

Was it a fluke? Hannan thinks the rest of the league might consider it that way.

But with this program, it’s all about who is in the boat — and starts with Solomon, who showed uncanny composure for a sophomore in his first year starting. He already holds a baseball scholarship offer from Gonzaga.

Thurman and Jake Dick are both high-volume running backs who are expected to split series’ this season. Thurman is pure power; Dick is a one-cut burner who can also barrel over defenders.

And with an all-senior offensive line, Inglemoor certainly wants a shot to get into the 4A KingCo crossover game to reach the postseason for the first time since 2007.
