Football: Cowan selected West offensive MVP in all-star classic

The East team routed the West 37-6, but local prep football standouts on the West squad shined at the 25th annual Earl Barden All-Star Classic at Zaepfel Stadium on June 22.

One of four quarterbacks used by the West, Sequim quarterback Riley Cowan was named the West’s offensive MVP. The SHS graduated senior threw the only TD of the game for his team in the second quarter, a four-yarder to Tyler Nevin of Concrete.

Cowan, who helped lead Sequim to an Olympic League 2A Division championship and was named the league MVP, had 35 yards rushing on five carries and was 4-for-8 passing for four yards.

It was Cowan’s final high school football game; he will be playing football for George Fox University in Newberg, Ore., this fall.

Also playing in the game were Logan Storm of Chimacum and Robert Comstock III of Quilcene. Storm had two rushes for nine yards and two receptions for nine yards. Comstock, who has signed to play at the College of the Siskiyous in Weed, Calif., had a reception for nine yards.
