North Kitsap’s Hecker headed to WSU

Andrew Hecker
Andrew Hecker

North Kitsap senior football player Andrew Hecker is headed to Washington State University as an invited walk-on.

Hecker, who helped the Vikings win the Olympic League 2A title and reach the state tournament in the fall as a receiver/defensive back/kicker/punter, accepted the Cougars’ invitation to walk on in December after receiving interest from several smaller schools, specifically Central Washington, Whitworth and George Fox.

Prior to receiving an invitation to attend WSU’s game against Washington, Hecker took the initiative and sent emails to a couple WSU coaches — as a “long shot thing” — to gauge their interest in him as a potential recruit. Within an hour, WSU assistant coach Eric Mele responded and set up a meeting with Hecker on the Sunday following the Apple Cup.

“It was just cool to get a reply,” Hecker said.

After getting a tour of WSU’s football facility, Hecker returned home and kept in correspondence with Mele. After a few weeks, Hecker received an offer to walk on — and he took it.

“I’m just glad and excited that it happened,” Hecker said Wednesday. “It kind of set up the rest of the year.”

As an invited walk on, Hecker said his roster spot is fairly secure — for now.

“It’s all the same as a scholarship player besides the fact that they aren’t paying for your schooling,” Hecker said.

The 6-foot-2, 185-pound Hecker said WSU would like him to start out as a defensive back with the possibility of playing some on special teams and at receiver.

Kingston appears in state hoops poll

The Kingston girls climb into the Associated Press state rankings. The Bucs are ranked No. 9 in the 2A classification.
They slipped in just as the Central Kitsap girls slipped out. They went from No. 8 to unranked after losing last week. CK hosts No. 9 Wilson on Wednesday night. A win could put them back in the rankings next week.

National LOI signing day quickly approaching

National Letter of Intent signing day is just around the corner. On Wednesday, Feb. 4, high school athletes — mostly football players — from around the country will put pen to paper and make their college destinations known.

In Kitsap, there are usually a few football players mixed in with a handful of girls soccer players who’ll hold signing day gatherings.

Crosspoint’s Desere’e Doty, who is heading to Grand Canyon University for women’s soccer, will have a gathering Wednesday at the school. Central Kitsap football player Brion Anduze, who is heading to the University of Arizona, is also planning something for next week.

If you are an athlete or parent of an athlete who is planning a signing day ceremony next week, send us a message at sunsports@kitsapsun.com or call us at 360-792-9200.

 

SK’s Mud Bowl revisited

If you’re jonesing for some football while you wait for the Super Bowl, be sure to check out a little local flavor brought to you by South Kitsap’s video program. In an effort to showcase some of the program’s hard work by the video students, Matthew Swager, the video technician for SK, is “digging up some of our old games and posting them on YouTube.”

Swager is kicking off with the Mud Bowl, from Oct. 19, 2007, one of the messiest games to be played at Joe Knowles Stadium as the Wolves battled the Gig Harbor Tides.
