SB Live Washington Top 25 football rankings: No. 1 Lake Stevens vs. No. 13 Mount Si one of many top-ranked showdowns this week

Every Monday during the 2019 football season Scorebook Live will rank the top-25 high school football teams in the state of Washington, regardless of classification.

Here are the Week 12 rankings (Nov. 18) as compiled by Scorebook Live Washington reporters Andy Buhler and Todd Milles.


1. Lake Stevens, 11-0 (4A)

Vikings needed every one of RB Dallas Landeros’ season-high 272 yards to put away Union in 4A title-game rematch

2. O’Dea, 10-0 (3A)

Holding Kelso to 40 yards in first round, Irish defense in fine form facing Mount Spokane star Kannon Katzer

3. Eastside Catholic, 9-1 (3A)

When you need a big play, just ask DE J.T. Tuimoloau. Nicely. His blocked punt sparks Crusaders’ recent rout 

4. Graham-Kapowsin, 11-0 (4A)

It wasn’t pretty, but Eagles beat Gonzaga Prep to earn fifth 4A quarterfinal trip in past six seasons

5. Kennedy Catholic, 11-0 (4A)

It is “go” time, and that apparently means DL/LB/WR Sav’ell Smalls becomes new short-yardage back

6. Camas, 11-0 (4A)

Fresh off first state playoff shutout win since 2011, Papermakers are now solo 4A GSHL bearers

7. Woodinville, 10-1 (4A)

One of weekend’s most intriguing matchups – Falcons’ secondary against Kennedy Catholic pass game

8. Tumwater, 11-0 (2A)

Against Franklin Pierce, T-Birds invoke “mercy rule” for seventh time this season. Not slowing down

9. Lincoln, 9-2 (3A)

Ever since Abes went to “full house” backfield as primary set, they’ve looked unstoppable – and unbeatable

10. Puyallup, 10-1 (4A)

Good news – Vikings won’t have to play at McKenzie Stadium on southbound trip. Bad news – Camas up next

11. Bothell, 9-2 (4A)

Cougars have ended unbeaten runs by Eric Kurle-coached teams in 2003 and 2013. Guess what?

12. Hockinson, 10-1 (2A)

Well, for this wondering who would be Hawks’ heavy-set rushing threat at key junctures – it’s QB Levi Crum

13. Mount Si, 9-2 (4A)

QB Clay Millen not only won first state playoff start, he passed for school-record 500 yards against Chiawana

14. Mount Spokane, 9-2 (3A)

RB Kannon Katzer (2,473 yards) needs 50 yards against O’Dea to become GSL’s all-time leading rusher

15. Bellevue, 9-2 (3A)

With ability to change tempo, and running backs who pass – Wolverines keep opponents off balance

16. Marysville-Pilchuck, 11-0 (3A)

Waiting for this upstart to finally crack? Not happening. 3A Wesco champs legit state contender

17. Bethel, 8-3 (3A)

Shootout or shutout (like last week against Garfield) – it doesn’t matter. Braves think they can match all styles

18. Kennewick, 10-1 (3A)

Nine of 10 wins have come in Tri-Cities, but now Lions face first legitimate road test in big-play Bethel 

19. Steilacoom, 9-2 (2A)

What’s the best way to get the state to pay attention? Play Friday quarterfinal when everyone else is off

20. Lynden, 8-2 (2A)

After dominating 2A CWAC No. 4 seed Othello, Lions get 2A GSHL No. 3 seed Washougal in quarterfinals

21. Archbishop Murphy, 8-2 (2A)

Ah, what would the 2A playoffs be without ATM-Tumwater? This is seventh meeting since 2010

22. Prosser, 9-2 (2A)

Just when you get a beat on Mustangs’ pass game – RB Logan Candanoza goes off (three TDs)

23. Royal, 11-0 (1A)

Nobody in the 1A ranks does more on both sides of the ball than senior RB/SS Lorenzo Myrick

24. La Salle, 11-0 (1A)

Best Lightning team ever? Kershaw cousins (Ryan, Kieran) keep this group at least in conversation

25. Lynden Christian, 9-1 (1A)

Many think with their size and two-quarterback threat, Lyncs are best threat to upending Royal
