SMS football: Timberwolves look for growth in gridiron tests

Sequim Middle School’s Timberwolves took their figurative and literal lumps on the football field this fall.

Coached by Sam Salanoa, Marcus Hollan and Quinton Delph, the T-Wolves went 1-5 this season with a 14-6 win against Blue Heron (Port Townsend) and a close loss to Stevens (17-12) in the second game of the campaign.

With 34 athletes turning out the Timberwolves saw a number of injuries this season, said Hollan, who is also the school’s athletic director.

”Most of our top playmakers this year had never played football before,” Hollan said. “The team faced a great deal of adversity this year … but they ended up coming together as a stronger unit. The group showed a lot of commitment to each other and played much better then the record shows.”

Hollan noted that quarterback Lars Wiker and receiver Dylan Allen connected for seven touchdown passes this year, putting them toward the top of the league in passing touchdowns.
