Team to watch
No school has won more Class 4A state boys soccer titles than Jefferson (seven) – and the Raiders are loaded for a run at No. 8. Their entire front line returns, but they also get back premier goal-scorer Isidro Prado-Huerta and goalkeeper McKay Owsley. With their firepower, the reigning SPSL champions will likely see opponents play them with 8-9 players behind the ball.

League favorites
SPSL North – Jefferson. SPSL South – Federal Way. Narrows 4A – Stadium. SPSL 3A – Bonney Lake. Narrows 3A – North Thurston. SPSL 2A – Fife. Evergreen Conference – Aberdeen. Nisqually 1A – Seattle Christian.

Player to watch
Jefferson’s Isidro Prado-Huerta left after two seasons with the Seattle Sounders Academy to get his grades up – and has decided to turn out for the high school team as a senior. The goal-scoring machine is powerful with quick feet, and will see lots of attention near the penalty box.
