Skyline draws national ranking
Maxpreps.com, a popular high school sports Web site, honored the Skyline football team with a No. 20 overall national ranking earlier in the week. The Spartans were the only team from Washington recognized in the top 25.
According the Web site, Skyline earned the recognition because of its returning core of players, including quarterback Jake Heaps and wide receiver Kasen Williams. Texas and Florida had the most teams on the list at three apiece.
