Three former high-school football standouts from the Issaquah School District recently earned all-Northwest Conference first-team honors.

Willamette University wide receiver Jake Knecht, a Skyline High School graduate, and Pacific Lutheran lineman Rob Marlow, from Liberty High School, earned first-team honors on offense.

Knecht, a junior, topped Willamette in pass receiving with 35 catches for 679 yards and eight touchdowns. He averaged a team-high 19.4 yards per catch and ranked third in the conference in touchdown receptions.

Marlow, a senior, was a three-year starter on the offensive line after playing linebacker during his freshman season. He earned second team all-conference honors in 2010.

Pacific Lutheran defensive back Justin Whitman, a former Liberty teammate of Marlow’s, earned first-team honors on defense. Whitman, a first-year starter, had 33 tackles and two interceptions this season.
