Every- one's gotta stay focused on that one goal: working for a perfect season. And even if that doesn't work out, we still need to stay fo- cused on the ultimate goal, which is that state championship." After losing key players, like re- ceivers Gino Simone, William Chandler and Jake Knecht to grad- uation, Heaps may rely on his es- tablished connection with Williams. A graduating Joey Evans also left a hole at running back, but Taylor said he thinks Sam- mamish transplant Nick Beauchamp will fill the role nicely. Taylor said the team worked ex- ceptionally hard this summer, av- eraging 85-90 players at each workout session. "There's lots of program kids that are stepping up this year, and that's kind of the trademark of Skyline," he said. "It's really about kids working their way up to their senior year." Everyone's talking about Skyline's slated match-ups against Oregon's Jesuit High and California's Oaks Christian. The Spartans play Jesuit at 5:30 p.m. Sept. 5 at the Emerald City Kick Off Classic at Qwest Field, and will appear on ESPN U when it hosts Oaks Christian at 7 p.m. Sept. 18. However huge that game, Tay- lor and Heaps are adamant about focusing on the opener. "It's really exciting to have the opportunity to play at Qwest field," Heaps said. "We just have to shore up some things and we're just try- ing to get as perfect as possible for that first game on Sept. 5." Taylor said knowing Jesuit was first on the schedule kept players focused this summer. "They're as good as you're going to get. I think that's really helped by having that first game being re- ally tough," he said. "Everybody wants to talk about Oaks Christian, but when you have a game like Je- suit, you can't even think about that game yet. Because if you do, they're going to catch up on us." Skyline's strength this year will be its experienced returning starters -- seven two-year starters and four three-year starters, in- cluding last year's kicker, Brian Schwartz, Taylor said. Their expe- rience will be crucial in keeping the less-experienced guys calm, cool and collected when it comes down to the wire. "The competition that we face is unbelievable. Week in, week out, we face the toughest teams in the state. I think that's what helps us set our playoff runs. We definitely have to take care of business in this conference, because if you're sleepin' one Friday night, you're going to get shocked and woken up real badly," Heaps said. "This team is really talented. We're re- ally loaded this year. Everybody's pushing each other." Other games to watch: Skyline at Eastlake at 7 p.m. Oct. 9, and Skyline versus Issaquah at 7 p.m. Oct. 16. Christopher Huber: 392-5434, ext. 242, or chuber@isspress.com. Comment at www.issaquahpress.com. FROM PAGE C1 Fleischman could be one of the Issaquah players receiving consid- erable recruiting attention this fall. He has already heard from five Di- vision I programs. But Fleischman said he is more concerned about team goals than personal ones. He's proud of how hard the linemen have worked in preparation for the 2009 season. "We've worked hard in the weight room. A lot of the guys are stronger," he said. One of the major responsibilities for the line be blocking for senior Grant Gellatly, one of the most explosive running backs in the state. Gellatly rushed for nearly 1,800 yards and scored 25 touchdowns last season, despite nagging injuries. "He is one of those players you want to get the ball to as much as possible," Bennett said. "When we get down into the red zone, he has that nose for finding the end zone. He also has the knack for busting a long run." Gellatly is admired by his team- mates, not just for scoring touch- downs. "This guy just doesn't quit," Fleischman said. "He always works hard. He is so motivated that guys want to be with him." Gellatly, also a hard hitter at cor- ner back on Issaquah's defense, is receiving attention from a variety of programs. Most colleges are re- cruiting him as a defensive back. The Air Force, however, is inter- ested in Gellatly as a running back. i iiiiii~;ii i i NIk Landdeck, Issaquah linebacker, gets a bead on his side of the line of scrimmage during a play in practice. But the Eagles realize it takes more than just one running back to get them back to Tacoma. "We're real pleased with the backs we have," Bennett said. BY GI~EG FARRAR quarry on the other Nik Landdeck, a junior fullback, and Taylor Wyman, a junior run- ning back, will get some carries, too. Senior Ryan Bergman takes over at quarterback for Joey Bradley, who graduated. "Bergman had a phenomenal spring and summer. Although he's never started a varsity game, we're real confident that he will step in and do a good job for us," Bennett said. "He has a good arm. He's a pretty calm, level-headed kid on the field." Bergman dazzled people at the Washington State Camp, earning most valuable player honors. Among his primary receivers are Blake Miller, Adam Dondoy- ano, Mitchell Blair, Evan Peterson, Gavin Sehumaker and Gellatly. The kicking game features Schu- maker, a junior place kicker, and Wyman, a punter. Both are among the best at their specialties in the KingCo. Schumaker kicked a field goal last year to beat Bothell in the quarterfinals. "He has made a lot of big kicks for us the last two years," Bennett said. Defensively, the Eagles were one of the toughest teams in KingCo last fall. Among the top returning players are Landdeck, a three-year starter at linebacker, and Gellatly, a four- year starter. The big guys on the offensive line will rotate on the de- fensive line. Another key player on defense will be Chase Nielsen, who will move from the secondary to become a weakside linebacker. The Eagles realize returning to Tacoma won't be an easy feat. "We have a lot of work to do along the way," Bennett said. "We can't rely on what we did last year."

Cameron Talley, Uberty linebacker, blocks a tackling a teammate during a drill. BY GREG FARRA~ dummy being held by FROM PAGE C1 passing and rushing yards. He also serves as the team's punter, and he earned First Team All State punter honors for his work in the position in 2008. Last season, he averaged 42.08 yards per punt. With Jenkins, the team has yet another threat. "Chandler's a nice triple threat, because he can run the ball and he can catch the ball. He's kind of like a Marshall Faulk type," Valach said. "He's going to be our future running back. We need to find ways to continue to get him the football." Talley said Jenkins has become much stronger and faster during the offseason. "He's improved in the weight room a lot," Talley said. "Teams are going to have to prepare for him a lot." In 2008, Jenkins rushed the ball 68 times, racking up 542 yards. He averaged 7.97 yards per carry and scored seven rush- ing touchdowns. He also completed 13 catches, recording 236 yards and scoring two receiving touchdowns. In addition to Wheeler and Jenkins, Valach said Talley (6-0, 180 pounds), junior lineman Alex Kaser {5-10, 205), senior lineman Dan Eck (6-1,210), jun- ior receiver/free safety Jake Bainton (6-3, 200), senior line- man Coleton Langdon (6-3, 270), senior defensive back/running back Kyle Ahrens (6-0, 175), sen- ior defensive back/running back Marcell Bell (5-10, 170), senior linebacker/offensive lineman Troy Solly (6-4, 185), senior line- man Nolan Leifer (6-2, 170) and senior wide receiver Peter Wig- gum (6-0, 160) are also among the team's returning key players. In addition to Wheeler and Jenkins, Kaser, Eck, Langdon, Ahrens, Talley, Bell and Solly are returning starters. Eck in particular will be a player to watch in 2009. In 2008, he recorded three sacks and 26 total tackles. The team will also have the help of up-and-coming players, such as sophomore lineman Anthony Olo- bia (6-3, 180 pounds), senior wide receiver Troy Colyer (6-0, 160), senior running back Kevin Ton (5- 9, 170) and senior lineman Richie Weisberg (6-3, 190). Valach said physical size may be a weakness for the team. "Overall, we have good speed. We don't necessarily really have great size," he said. "We have a good line, but probably quick- ness and agility more than strength. Sometimes, you have the big beefy lines that are domi- nant, and that's not so much us." Without a doubt, Liberty's biggest game of the year will be Oct. 23 -- the school's homecom- ing game -- against Bellevue. Al- though the Patriots dropped two games to the Wolverines last year, the players say they are ready to face them once more. "I'm confident that we can play with them as we can any team," Talley said. "I think we're on the road to being a great team this year." The Liberty Patriots kick off their 2009 season at home against Ballard at 7 p.m. Sept. 4. The team will play its first con- ference game of the year at home against Mercer Island Sept. 17, and it will host neigh- boring Hazen High School on Oct. 9.
