The Skyline High School Spartans have traditionally featured a pass-happy, wide-open offense, but last week they showed they can also play bruising, run-between-the-tackles football.
Skyline amassed 286 rushing yards, including 151 from sophomore running back Rashaad Boddie, and played stellar defense to earn a 21-6 victory against the rival Eastlake Wolves on Sept. 20 at Spartan Stadium.
A dominant first half proved to be enough for Skyline (2-1), which didn’t score in the second half after Boddie was sidelined with an ankle injury.

In a battle of high-school football programs with 18 state championships between them, it was the Bellevue High School Wolverines who looked much more comfortable in a big-game environment.
Bellevue High School, winners of the last five Class 3A titles, forced three turnovers and ran up 418 yards of offense, leading to a 45-7 victory over two-time defending 4A champion Skyline on Sept. 7 at Husky Stadium in Seattle.
The Wolverines took control early on both sides of the ball, using their size and speed to overwhelm the Spartans at the line of scrimmage. At halftime, Bellevue led 35-0 and had three scoring plays of 40 yards or more.
