State champs set for clash, Interlake hopes to open on right foot under Myers | Prep football news
The 2013 prep football season kicks off Friday at fields around the state and a pair of teams from the area are looking to get back to the state tournament.
Bellevue, winners of the past five 3A state titles, will open the season Saturday at renovated Husky Stadium against the two-time defending 4A state champs from Skyline in the finale of the Emerald City Kickoff Classic at 7 p.m.
The two did not meet last year as Bellevue made another undefeated run to the state championship and last played in 2011, a 31-17 Bellevue win at Skyline.
The Spartans were also the last team to hand Bellevue a defeat, winning 28-21 in 2010.
Newport begins life after two-way superstar Isaac Dotson with a trip to Olympia to face Capital.
The Knights, which made the first round of the state tournament last year before falling 41-14 to Mead, lost 29-22 to Capital last season.
Sammamish and head coach Brian Tucci hope to get back in the win column after going winless last season and open in Duvall against 2A Cedarcrest.
The Red Wolves won 41-28 at Sammamish to open last season.
Interlake begins the Dave Myers era against 4A Issaquah, which made the 4A playoffs last year.
The Saints finished with a 3-7 record last year, losing 24-13 to the Eagles in the season opener.
