Six other boys you should have seen
A look at a half-dozen other boys who stood out this school year.
Seattle Times staff reporter
Trent Riley, Mount Si
One of the state’s best receivers in football, Riley was a Seattle Times all-state selection. After missing the 2011 season with a knee injury that threatened to end his playing career, the UNLV-bound senior had 59 catches, 872 receiving yards and a school-record 22 touchdowns as a senior. In basketball, he was first-team All-KingCo 3A/2A after averaging about 20 points.
Sean Elledge, Glacier Peak
Elledge had more than 800 receiving yards and was a standout defensive back in football; the Everett Herald named him the defensive player of the year for the area. Elledge also won a state championship at 182 pounds in wrestling and was a key contributor on Glacier Peak’s baseball team.
Marquis Davis, Rainier Beach
Davis is a powerful athlete who is explosive in three sports. He played running back and was a first-team Metro League Sound Division football selection. In basketball, he was a first-team All-Metro pick and a starting guard for the Class 3A state champions. He capped his year with a state title in the long jump. Davis, a senior, will play basketball at Santa Clara.
Budda Baker, Bellevue
Opposing football coaches marveled at the way Baker played defensive back. He made some big runs and returned a punt for a touchdown in the Wolverines’ state championship victory. A junior, he has received recruiting interest from every Pac-12 school. In track, he was the 100-meter state champion, was part of two state-champion relays and finished third in the long jump.
Carter Osborne, Shorecrest
Osborne did a little of everything for the Scots. Last fall, he finished 17th at the Class 3A state cross country meet. In the winter, he hopped in the pool and swam to sixth place at state in the 200-yard freestyle and helped the school’s 400 freestyle relay finish seventh. Osborne capped his impressive year by winning the 800 and placing third in the 1,600 in the state track meet.
Caleb Hamilton, Woodinville
A slick-fielding shortstop who made even the tough plays look routine, Hamilton was the KingCo 4A MVP in baseball. He made just three errors all season and also led the conference with a .419 batting average. On the football field, Hamilton was the All-KingCo 4A Crest Division quarterback after passing for more than 1,000 yards for the 6-3 Falcons.
