Skyline grad Kasen Williams stars in Apple Cup
November 29, 2011
Kasen Williams, who had many memorable moments at Skyline High School, likely won’t forget his first Apple Cup, either.
The freshman wide receiver caught five passes for 74 yards and two touchdowns Nov. 26 to help the University of Washington beat rival Washington State University, 38-21, at CenturyLink Field in Seattle.
Williams caught a 16-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Keith Price in the first quarter to put the Huskies ahead 14-0. Then, with just 24 seconds left in the first half, Williams hauled in a 21-yard pass from Price to put Washington ahead for good at 21-14.
Three other Skyline graduates saw action in the game. William Chandler was the holder on all Washington placekicks and linebacker Cooper Pelluer also played some on defense. For the Cougars, Gino Simone caught a pass for 32 yards.
Chandler recently earned Pacific-12 Conference All-Academic Team second-team honors. He has a 3.83 grade point average and is a business/accounting major.
