Archbishop Murphy High School recently enshrined its first class of inductees into the school’s athletics Hall of Fame.
The Wildcats inducted legendary football coach Terry Ennis, football player Shiloh Keo, two-sport athlete Sarah (Schireman) Linse and the 2015-17 boys soccer teams during a ceremony Feb. 2.
Ennis, the Wildcats’ head football coach from 2000-07, compiled a career 287-87 overall record over 36 years coaching for Stanwood, Bellarmine Prep, Renton, Cascade and Archbishop Murphy. His career mark ranks in the top-10 of winningest coaches in Washington state history.
Ennis went 75-12 while coaching the Wildcats, including a 34-game winning streak between 2002-04. He won back-to-back Clas 1A state championships for Archbishop Murphy (2002-03) and one 4A title with Cascade in 1991. In 1999, he was named the Washington State High School Coach of the Century by The Seattle Times.
Keo, a 2006 graduate, helped lead the Archbishop Murphy football team to two Cascade Conference titles as well as third- and second-place finishes at state as a defensive back.
Keo was a four-year starter at the University of Idaho before being selected by the Houston Texans in the fifth round of the 2011 NFL draft. He played for the Texans, Cincinnati Bengals, Denver Broncos and the New Orleans Saints from 2011-16. He was a member of the Broncos’ Super Bowl winning team in 2016.
Linse, a 2009 graduate, was a two-sport athlete for the Wildcats in soccer and track and field. She helped Archbishop Murphy to back-to-back third-place finishes at the 2007-08 2A girls soccer state tournaments. She also claimed a 2A state track and field title in the 100-meter hurdles in 2009 and took second in the 300 hurdles, long jump and triple jump, leading the Wildcats to a fourth-place team finish as Archbishop Murphy’s lone participant at the meet. She captured 15 Cascade Conference titles in track and field across her four seasons as a Wildcat.
At the University of Washington, Linse was a four-time letter winner and three-time Pac-10 and Pac-12 honorable mention.
The 2015-17 Wildcats boys soccer squads secured three consecutive 2A state championships with a 63-2-1 combined record under head coach Mike Bartley, including a 43-game winning streak from 2016-17.
Archbishop Murphy had 12 seniors in 2017 that were members of all three title-winning teams, including 2017 Gatorade Player of the Year Matt Williams. Bartley was named The Herald’s Coach of the Year in 2015, 2016 and 2017, as well as Cascade Conference Coach of the Year (2016-17) and NCSSA Coach of the Year in 2015.
