Football Kicks Off 2015 Season

August 19, 2015

RENTON, Wash. – The 2015 high school football season begins Wednesday, August 19 with the first official practice day of the year. Two-hundred and ninety one teams throughout the state will take to the field today to begin their journey toward a Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) State Championship. During the 2014 season, 21,149 student-athletes represented their schools and communities as members of their high school football teams.

Teams will play a maximum of 10 games (plus a jamboree) in the regular season, culminating with the Gridiron Classic. The 2015 Gridiron Classic will take place in the Tacoma Dome on December 4-5 for all six classifications. This year marks the 20th year the Championships have been held in the Tacoma Dome.

The 2014 1B Champion was the Neah Bay Red Devils (14-0). The Red Devils beat the Liberty Christian Patriots (12-1) 56-38 to take home the Championship trophy. The win was the third State Championship for the Red Devils in the past four years.

The Okanogan Bulldogs (14-1) prevailed over the Napavine Tigers (12-1) 17-14 to earn the 2B Championship in 2014. With the win, the Bulldogs captured their second State Championship in school history, their first in the 2B classification, and made their 15th appearance at State.

The 2014 1A Championship game took overtime before the Cougars of Cascade Christian (13-0) could take down the Colville Indians (12-1) in an extremely close game with the Cougars coming out on top, 27-26. The Cougars have reached the Championship four times in the past seven years.

In the 2014 2A title game, the Sedro-Wooley Cubs (13-1) took on the Lynden Lions (12-2). The Cubs avenged their regular season loss against the Lions by winning the Championship, 42-13.

The 2014 3A State Champions were the Eastside Catholic Crusaders (13-1). The Crusaders beat the Bellevue Wolverines (13-1) 35-13 for the title, ending the Wolverines’ State Championship win streak of six as well as their state-record 67-game win streak. Eastside Catholic had lost to Bellevue in the previous two Championship games.

The Bothell Cougars faced the 2013 champion, the Chiawana Riverhawks (12-2) in the 4A Championship game. With a 24-14 victory over the Riverhawks, the Cougars finished their season undefeated with a 14-0 record. This was Bothell’s first football State Championship trophy.
