I hit three practices on the first day of the high school football season on Wednesday and I wasn’t the only reporter making the rounds. Here are some reports from around the state:

Mike Cane of the Everett Herald wrote this story on Marysville-Pilchuck losing five players to other schools, including four that landed in Juanita. Seems odd because Juanita is about 40 miles south of the M-P.

Cane also made it out to a few WesCo practices. One piece of vitally important information I gleaned from Cane’s report is that South Whidbey has a player named Chuck Norris.

— Over in Spokane, Greg Lee has this story about Central Valley quarterback Gaven Deyarmin almost dying from a burst appendix. Lee also hit practices at 4A powers Gonzaga Prep and Ferris.

— The CBBN-centric has a look at Chiawana, Richland and Kamiakin. gives a report on Evergreen, which will play at Lakes this season, and Camas, one of the top 3A teams in the state.

Meg Wochnick of The Olympian has this look at Tumwater, North Thurston and Northwest Christian. And here’s a take on Black Hills and River Ridge.

— The Bellingham Herald’s Joe Sunnen attended the first day of practice at Sehome, where new coach Darren Tinnerstet has taken over.

— Wahkiakum High School hit the practice field at one second after midnight on Wednesday morning. Ben Zimmerman of The Daily News was there.
