As of last week, Washington state ranked 44th in deaths per capita and has had a better handle on the coronavirus than most states in the U.S. If the rest of the country achieved the same death rate, “about 220,000 fewer people would be dead,” according to The New York Times.
Can the state continue to be among the national leaders in case rate and deaths per capita while allowing for a safe return of high school sports? Should it? The SBLive Washington podcast discusses where prep sports falls into the state’s response as the high school sports world gears up for a potential return-to-play.
Then, Mount Si quarterback Clay Millen joins the podcast (17:08 minute mark) to talk about his recent de-commitment from Arizona, what his new phase of recruitment looks like and how he’s preparing for a potential senior high school season.
