Scappoose coach Sean McNabb, plus Scappoose, Rainier players in game
When the 61st Annual East West Shrine All-Star football game gets under way on Saturday the Scappoose Indians, Rainier Columbians, and Cowapa League will be well represented.
The West team is co-coached by Scappooses longtime coach Sean McNabb. The other head coach is Jim Lockwood of Hosanna Christian. Other coaches include Ben Lane of Oakland, and Mike King of Rainier.
The West team looks good, McNabb said on Wednesday. We have some really talented kids, a mix of all different levels up through 4A. The 22 starters are all all-stars. We just need to get the ball in their hands.
The teams are made up of graduated seniors from 1A through the 4A ranks. There are several alternate players added as well. The game benefits the Portland Shriners Hospital for Children.
Included among those all-stars is the Tribes Paul Revis, Cowapa League Offensive Player of the year. At 5-feet, 9-inches, he had 88 receptions for 1,591 yards for 25 touchdowns and 2,277 all-purpose yards and 33 total touchdowns.
Another county resident player is Derek King of Rainier, a 5-9, 165 pound running back and linebacker.
Cowapa League players include: Lucas Clark (6-3, 230 DE/TE) of Seaside; Jeremy Poyer (6-2, 225, QB/TW/P/DB) of Astoria; and Zach Olson (5-9,170, WR/CB) of Banks.
