The Skyline Spartans are state champs for the fourth time in five years after beating the Skyview Storm 38-7 Saturday at the Tacoma Dome.

Skyline used a strong running attack and typical air attack to take it to Skyview.

But The Spartan defense also played a huge role in the dominant effort at state. Three different defenders intercepted passes from Skyview’s Kieran McDonagh, including Jack Valencia’s 74-yard interception return for a touchdown with 34 seconds left in the game.

Junior quarterback Max Browne finished the night completing 15 of 22 pass attempts for 222 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.

Running back Damian Greene ran the ball 16 times for 76 yards and a touchdown. Valencia finished with 43 yards rushing and also punched through for an 11-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.

    Spartans have some great players, they keep winning and they are rightfully praised, but very little is said about the supberb coaching team that spends countless hours training these young athletes. They sacrifice their family time and social time in training, scouting, pouring over game films and developing the hidden talents. Lets hear it for these unsung heroes.
