Numerous others are on the Other Seniors to Watch list, including quarterbacks Lucas McGill of Eastmont and Deion Wright of Davis.

Othello’s Caleb Garza and Sunnyside’s Steven Montgomery are listed at running backs, while Walla Walla’s Moe Handcox and Davis’ Cooper Kupp are at wide receiver.

Lineman Dennis Christensen of Richland made the list, as did Connell’s Keenan VanHollebeke.
