Preview: Kennewick at Mt. Spokane

SPOKANE -- Kennewick coach Bill Templeton might experience a little dja vu when Wildcats' RB Chase Naccarato hits the field.

The 5-8, 150-pound playmaker might remind Templeton of former Kennewick standout Robbie Mitchell, who led the Lions to the 2007 3A quarterfinals.

"He's a very good athlete with good speed. He makes catches and he's a very good corner," Templeton said of Naccarato. "He's somebody we're going to have to account for.

But Kennewick will bring it's own playmaker, QB Drew Loftus, who ranks second in the CBBN 3A in rushing and fifth in passing and has four interceptions on defense as well.
