Garfield/Palouse to meet Sunnyside Christian Friday


September 6, 2018 | View PDF

After a bye week due to Touchet not having enough eligible players for a game Aug. 31, Garfield/Palouse will start their football season Friday at home against Sunnyside Christian.

The game is the debut of new head coach Garrett Parrish, a four-year assistant to Will Woltering, who resigned earlier this year after five years as head coach.

Parrish, a 2005 Garfield/Palouse graduate and former Vikings quarterback, looks to have his team ready to play the Knights, expected to be the top team in the Southeast 1B league.

Sunnyside Christian quarterback Kyler Marsh continues the tradition of talented Marsh boys leading the team. For Gar/Pal, sophomore Austin Jones is the new starter at quarterback after the graduation of Evan Weagraff, a three-year starter. The Vikings return a veteran line, led by seniors Tanner Anderson, Ely Hawkins, Riley Pedersen, Tyson White and Clayton Clarkson. At running back is Kaden Sanderson, another senior, who moves from the line last year. Jacob Reed, also a senior, suits up at tailback. Hawkins may also carry the ball at times.

Gametime Friday in Palouse is 7 p.m.
