Athlete of the Week

The senior quarterback completed 11 of 20 passes for 150 yards in Friday’s 9-7 state playoff quarterfinal victory over Tahoma.

Big plays were tough to come by for Kamiak, which was facing one of the best defenses in the state. Jones kept the Knights alive several times during the game with crucial completions.

The first-year starter heaved a 37-yard bomb down the sideline on third-and-24 on the drive that ended with Ryan Carlson’s game-winning field goal with 3:10 remaining in the game.

Jones refuses to take credit for the victory, which sent the Knights to the Tacoma Dome for the first semifinal game in school history.

“Our offensive line dominated,” Jones said. “The receivers caught the ball and the running backs ran hard. We kept driving and not getting there, but it finally worked.”

Jones attempted only two passes on the winning drive, which started from Kamiak’s 20-yard line. He completed both for 64 yards. Jones said he was confident that the Knights were going to find a way to win in the end.

“I knew it in my heart,” Jones said. “I had no doubt.”

Other top football performers: Reid Wilson, Kamiak; Matt Stiner, Kamiak; Jason Mullavey, Kamiak; Dan Klumper, Kamiak; Nolan Perkl, Lake Stevens; Joey Daube, Lake Stevens.
