Football: Four Washington kids shine at All-American combine

Four Washington football players shined at the U.S. Army All-American combine in San Antonio last week.

Bellarmine Prep quarterback Sefo Liufau, Eisenhower (Yakima) quarterback Kolney Cassell, Newport (Bellevue) quarterback Isaac Dotson and Graham-Kapowsin defensive back Kahlil Dawson were named to the all-combine team.

Liufau, Cassell and Dotson received honorable mention for quarterbacks and Dawson was honorable mention at his position. All four are juniors. None have given oral commitments.

Factor in Skyline junior quarterback Max Browne and Washington appears to be rich in quarterbacks next fall.
