Columbia Basin Big Nine Cascade Division players to watch

Columbia Basin Big Nine Cascade Division players to watch.

Ryan Craig

OL/LB, Hanford

-- Should be more of a playmaker on defense with move from tackle to middle linebacker.

Taylor Elmo

QB/DB, Eisenhower

-- An electrifying athlete who can beat you with his arm or legs; he's projected to play defense in college.

Peter Girgis

OL/DL, Richland

-- His addition to offensive line at midseason helped Bombers' attack get on track; also a disruptive force on defense.

Corey Hutchison

QB, Kamiakin

-- Braves ready to open up offense thanks to this left-hander who throws a good deep ball.

Seth Kline

LB, Eisenhower

-- An all-league pick as a sophomore, he packs a wallop with every hit of his 6-1, 220-pound frame.

Dane Knapp

WR/LB, Kamiakin

-- Injuries have derailed his career so far, but if he can stay healthy, he'll have a big season.

Jamison Rowe

WR/DB, Richland

-- The 4A's Defensive MVP last year, the Bombers want to get him involved more on the offensive end this year.

Cody Shepherd

TE/DE, Richland

-- Baseball is his favorite, but several coaches say he could be a legit D-I football recruit.

Kyle Siekawitch

RB/LB, West Valley

-- Took advantage of injuries to move up the depth chart and show he deserves to stay there.

Kyle Wagar

WR/DB, Hanford

-- Didn't get fully healthy until midway through last year, yet still caught team-high 30 passes.

Kody Winsor

RB/LB, Hanford

-- A former regional 100 champion in track whose true calling card is at linebacker.

Gary Winston

QB/DB, Walla Walla

-- Move behind center allows this playmaker to control the action on every down.
