Until the WIAA’s postseason formats were formed in the 1970s, state football champions were crowned by The Associated Press. Coaches refer to this era as the “mythical state championships.” This week on the SBLive Washington podcast, the team explores why most active football coaches polled are in favor that format returning in a pandemic-shortened season with no traditional postseason.
Then, Mountain View senior and Wisconsin golf signee Graham Moody joins (15:21 minute mark). Moody won a 3A state championship as a freshman, placed third as a sophomore and as a junior last year won his district tournament by a landslide before the state tournament was cancelled due to the coronavirus. He talks about the return of high school golf in Washington, why he’s overjoyed to have a senior high school season and how he’s preparing for the Big Ten.
