PREP FOOTBALL: Quarterfinal players to watch

CASEY LOCKER

School: Ferndale

Position: QB/DB

Year: Junior

In addition to being the team’s scoring leader, Locker is one of the leaders of the defensive secondary that must find a way to slow down Erich Armstrong and the Franklin Pierce passing game.

DAVID GAYLORD

School: Lynden

Positions: RB/LB

Year: Junior

Gaylord was challenged to step up against Centralia, and he responded with a pair of touchdowns. He’s been a force on defense.

JEREMY RICK

School: Bellingham

Positions: RB/DB

Year: Junior

Bellingham will have to control the ball in this one and Rick has been the one to carry the load. He has rushed for 1,141 yards and eight TDs this season.

SEAN HURLBUT

School: Meridian

Position: RB

Year: Senior

Hurlbut has rushed for 1,694 yards and 24 touchdowns so far this season, and the Trojans will depend on him and fellow standout Andrei Lintz to help carry them as far as they can.

TONY WASHINGTON

School: Lummi

Positions: RB/LB

Year: Junior

On a team full of offensive stars, Washington may be the brightest. If he and the Blackhawks get going, say goodbye to the Elks.
