Readers of Sports Illustrated should be familiar with the magazine’s “Go Figure” feature. In this week’s edition, the Emerald Ridge football team was singled out.
Here’s the copy:
5: Co-head varsity football coaches employed by Emerald Ridge (Wash.) High.
19: Consecutive losses by the Emerald Ridge Jaguars, before they won last Friday.
Now, there’s not a lot of context there. Most of us in the South Sound know that the five co-head coaches took over this season, so only five losses are on their shoulders. And I suspect if Emerald Ridge had one head coach there’s almost no chance they get mentioned in Sports Illustrated for ending a 19-game winning streak. But good for the Jags. Always cool to see local high schools in a national publication.
You can see all of this week’s “Go Figure”here.
Good thing for the Jaguars they weren’t mentioned in this article in the current edition of Sports Illustrated.
