2012 Football Preview: Olympia
Olympia: Lineman Connor Wilmosvky has aggression, size to lead Bears
Coming Tuesday: TimberlineOLYMPIA BEARS
Coach: Bill Beattie, 18th year
2011 record: 9-2, 2nd in league; lost in 4A first round.
Offense: Coordinator (set) - Bill Beattie (multiple).
Returning starters - 4.
Top players - RB Kyle Alfonso, 5-10, 200, Sr.; RB Casey Bond, 5-10, 190, Sr.; WR Alex Johnson, 6-5, 210, Sr.; OL Connor Wilmovsky, 6-5, 265, Sr.
Defense: Coordinator (set) - Todd McDougall (4-3).
Returning starters - 3.
Top players - DL Kyle Alfonso, 5-10, 200, Sr.; DL Tanner Hartsoch, 6-2, 215, Sr.; DB Randy Jones, 5-11, 175, Jr.; DL Connor Wilmovsky, 6-5, 265, Sr.
Outlook: Based on tradition, consistency and coaching, the Bears are threats to win the league. And while this might be considered a down year in the programs talent pool, Johnson is a bona fide go-to threat in the passing game, and Wilmovsky moves people from his offensive guard spot. Gabe Padukiewicz gets first crack as the full-time quarterback.
