Christmas came early for fans of Graham-Kapowsin High School football program. Saturday, the 4A Washington State champs shocked Georgia 7A champ Collins Hill 40-36 in the GEICO State Champions Bowl Series in Las Vegas.
Collins Hill entered the game ranked No. 15 in the High School Football America 100 national rankings, powered by NFL Play Football. Graham-Kapowsin was unranked in our national rankings, meaning the Eagles were ranked outside of our Top 300 teams.
Senior G-K quarterback Joshua Wood, an Eastern Washington-recruit, tossed a 32-yard pass to Stephen Mars for the game-winning score with just one second left on the clock.
Graham-Kapowsin showed a national television audience that is deserved to be in the national rankings. The Eagles entered the contest 14-0, having won its games by an average of 41 points.
