Each week throughout the school year, the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) recognizes twelve varsity athletes, a male and a female from each of the six classifications, who exhibited an outstanding performance for the previous week.
Jack Van Dyke , a Senior from King's High School, was nominated by a community member and selected by WIAA staff as one of the Athletes of the Week for achievements in Football.
Van Dyke sparked the early charge for the Knights by returning a fumble for a touchdown, and then 20 seconds later returning an interception for a touchdown. He also kicked six PAT¹s, 2 for 2 passing, and had 16 yards rushing in the 60-33 win over South Whidbey.
In recognition of their accomplishment, each Athlete of the Week winner receives a congratulatory letter from WIAA Executive Director, Mike Colbrese, a commemorative WIAA State Athlete of the Week t-shirt, and a certificate. Winners are also posted to the WIAA website.
