THREE TO SEE
Malik Agbo, offensive lineman
Has such leadership skills as sophomore, could be mayor of Federal Way right now.
Brycen Dillworth, quarterback
Versatile three-sport athlete moves from receiver to replace Brandon Niksich
Denny Tiumalu, defensive end/linebacker
4A NPSL Mountain defensive lineman of year plays popular hybrid role to perfection
The Titans don’t mind being the tough kid on the block — and under-appreciated defending divisional champion either.
They know after losing their starting offensive backfield, including all-purpose star Billy Vann, many followers figure they will take a step back to mid-pack.
But with their front-line players on both sides — a jumbo-athletic offensive line of Agbo, Lui and Jones, and five returning all-4A NPSL performers from the league’s top defense — Beamer is instead thinking of how to advance further than the district round of the playoffs.
Remember this name: Brycen Dillworth. He is the school’s best basketball player and a standout triple jumper. Coaches are confident he will be an impact dual-threat signal caller who can break off a big run at any time.
And Watson, Tiumalu and Haver will do just fine by committee filling in the rushing production of Vann.
