Middle School football squad goes undefeated and never scored upon


The Granite Falls Middle School seventh and eigth grade football squads had incredible seasons.

A year ago, our Middle School program finished 1-11. Our combined record this year was 9-3. This is an impressive turn around!

Specifically, the seventh grade squad did what has apparently only happened one other time in Granite Falls' football history.

They went undefeated with a record of 5-0 and they were never scored upon. Granite Falls scored 155 cumulative points, with 0 scored against us. The scores were as follows: 41-0 vs. Sultan, 12-0 vs. Coupeville, 26-0 vs. Sultan, 43-0 vs. Kings and 33-0 vs. Langley.

These boys may not truly grasp the accomplishment they pulled off.  With an overall new coaching staff this year, the boys were lead by Head Coach Ryan Blacker, Assistant Coach Dion Smith, Assistant Coach Larry Lawlis, Assistant Coach Randy Harris, and Assistant Coach Shawn Roberts.
