Bellevue, the three-time defending 3A state champs in Washington (and eight of the last 10) travel to Southern California to take on CIF-SS Northern Division champs Oaks Christian, who knocked off three-time Washington State champs Skyline two years ago.
The Wolverines featured their vaunted Wing-T, which is never easy to stop for opposing defenses, especially early in the season, and they'll use the offensive line featuring Jake Eldrenkamp and Michael Kneip to lead the way for quarterback Tyler Hasty, who also plays cornerback. The Lions welcome in new quarterback Luke Falk, who moved from Utah to Southern California, and the junior already has an offer Florida State.
Oaks boasts four-star receiver Jordan Payton and four-star cornerback Ishmael Adams as well as three-star linebacker Mendoza, with Mendoza and Adams splitting carries in the backfield.
