Bellevue searches out elite football competition

The Bellevue football team, winners of six of the last eight 3A state titles, continues to look beyond Washington’s borders for competition.

Two weeks ago, it was announced that the Wolverines would travel to Texas to face two-time defending 5A state champion Katy High School on Sept. 12.

Now, the Wolverines are trying to line up games against Hoover (Ala.) High School and Jenks (Okla.) High School for the 2010 and 2011 CBA Football Classic. Hoover — you might recognize the name from the MTV reality series Two-a-Days – would travel to Washington in 2010.

Bellevue will meet Sacramento Grant High School in the 2009 CBA Football Classic on Sept. 19 at Seattle’s Memorial Stadium.

Bellevue is no stranger to facing out-of-state elite teams. The Wolverines exploded onto the national football scene in 2004 when they ended Concord (Calif.) De La Salle’s record 151-game winning streak at Qwest Field. Bellevue followed that game with a win over highly-regarded Long Beach Poly in 2005.
