Shorewood and Shorecrest open their football season Friday night

From the Shoreline Area News Sports Desk

The Shorewood T-Birds open the 2012 football season with a non-league game on the road Friday night, playing the late  (8 PM) game at Everett Memorial Stadium against a rebuilding Cascade team. 

Third year coach  Rob Petschl is brimming with optimism as his T-Birds return several players to key positions.  Aaron Miller will handle the reins of the SW offense at quarterback for the third year.  Wide receiver Chris Namba is a big fast kid who scored 7 TDs last year, and running back Levy Diaz was hard to bring down in pre-season camp.

One newcomer (with good bloodlines) to keep an eye on is sophomore Mo Holley.  Older brothers Dorian Lair and Eugene Holley, and sister Kendra Holley-Lair, all excelled in many sports for the T-Birds. He'll be playing linebacker, and word is that he's faster than the speedy Eugene.

Cascade comes into their first game sporting a new coach and a 24-game losing streak.

Next Friday SW plays at 8 PM against Lynnwood, at Edmonds Stadium.

Their home opener will be Friday September 14 against Marysville -Getchell.

Shorecrest opens their season at home Friday night at 7 PM, in a non-league contest against Lynnwood.

Scots coach Brandon Christensen is overseeing a squad that's facing wholesale changes. After three years of featuring the passing game, the Scots can be counted on to pound the ball more than in the past.

Two big linemen, John Daniels and Johnson Jones, hope to pave the way for speedy running backs Keegan Small and Keegan Lockler. 

QB Nik Hendricks will be looking for targets Aaron Kelly and Keelan Tidwell to help keep opposing defenses honest.

The Royals bring with them their aptly-named  mainstay lineman, Andrew Basham, who has verbally committed to play for the UW next year.  Fans will want to keep their eye on the big men in the trenches all night long.

As has been their custom for years before all home games, the Shorecrest Booster Club will be sponsoring a barbecue prior to the game. 

Fans are encouraged to arrive early, bring their appetites, and root for the Scots.
