Friday is the season opener for the Mountlake Terrace High School football team. They play Lynnwood at the Edmonds stadium at 5 P.M. on Friday, September 4. Here’s what the Enterprise has to say about the match up:
Lynnwood vs. Mountlake Terrace
Game time: 5 p.m. Friday at Edmonds Stadium
Last year’s records: Lynnwood 0-4 in the league, 0-10 overall; Mountlake Terrace 1-5 in the league, 4-6 overall
Last year’s results: Mountlake Terrace 29, Lynnwood 6
Players to watch: The buzz around Lynnwood is that California transfer Typhis Cochran is a player with Division I potential. Cochran was one of the Royals’ top sprinters last spring and brings speed to the backfield. He’ll join quarterback Michael Stanley. Mountlake Terrace is led by senior quarterback Brandyn Eckhart, who set a record for rushing yards by a quarterback in the team’s final regular season game, and four-year varsity running back Casey Ellersick.
Breakdown: Mountlake Terrace returns one of its most veteran squads in recent years and is looking to continue the momentum of last year’s solid season. The Hawks’ experience on both sides of the ball should be a major advantage against a Lynnwood team that is looking to start a new tradition after a winless 2008 campaign.
Enterprise pick: Mountlake Terrace 35, Lynnwood 13
