Grant wins Barton 7-7
There were nine teams, some full high school teams like Grant, Lakes, Oregon City, King's (Shoreline), and Rogers (Puyallup, Wash.). And even some of those teams, like Grant, had some renegade players chipping in. For the Generals, they drafted Portland (Ore.) Jesuit WR Adam Winterling and Eugene Willamette ATH Jordan Visarraga to help.
There were some star-studded renegade teams included: Team Sewell - coached by O'Dea Head T&F Coach Colan Sewell - was filled with talent, including his son Trent Sewell (Bothell), Parker Mays (Seattle Prep), David Fontenette (Bethel), Caleb Saulo (Kentlake), Caleb Smith (Kentridge), Keivarae Russell (Mariner), Jayshawn Jordan (O'Dea), Tatum Taylor (O'Dea), and Curtis Taylor (O'Dea).
Team Washington had players from Juanita, like 2013 top prospect Darrin Laufasa, and Rainier Beach (Anthony Segi). They also drafted 2011 standout Terenn Houk from Enumclaw, a BYU signee.
Team Oregon was the top Rose City-based renegade team, with players from Eugene Sheldon (Sam McCaskill and Dawson Housley), as well as Portland Lincoln (Koleman Vance). Evan Sanders (Canby), and Reece Hack (Stayton) were the quarterbacks.
Team Parmley was the last renegade team, and their group included Kieran McDonagh (Vancouver Skyview), and Ty Saathoff (Tacoma Curtis).
Here's the results:
Quarterfinals: Team Oregon over Team Sewell; Team Washington over King's.
Semifinals: Lakes over Team Oregon; Grant over Team Washington.
Finals: Grant over Lakes 22-8
"I would love to make this an annual thing, where we made this a big Memorial Day weekend Tournament with our youth flag football, with our high school flag football…bring in teams from all over the country," Barton said. "Today we had kids in from Canada, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. I'd like to have teams come in from all over the country. I'd love to have players coming in…and all the local kids too. I just think it's a great chance, not just for the big-name kids, but for all the other kids that are flying under the radar - to get some exposure."
