Can Kralik turn South Kitsap’s fortunes around?

Now that Gavin Kralik’s hiring as football coach at South Kitsap is official (it took a while, didn’t it?), I’m eager to know what people think about the move?

The Wolves went 13-17 under three seasons with Eric Canton leading the program, winning just three games last season. Canton resigned in December.

I’ve spoken to several people with ties to South Kitsap football who believe that this program is in serious need of rebuilding with some issues (grass field, lack of modern facilities/practice grounds, size of coaching staff) having been ignored for too long.

Can a new coach bring a quick fix? Or is this going to take a while for the ship to get righted?

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.

Oklahoma football semifinals put on hold

An interesting story out of Oklahoma where the state football semifinals were put on hold so a judge can decide who will play in them.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma judge says a high school football semifinal will not be played Friday so he can consider whether a team that lost in the quarterfinals is entitled to a replay.
Locust Grove’s Class 3A semifinal against Heritage Hall was postponed until next week at the earliest.
The little school from northeastern Oklahoma beat Oklahoma City’s Douglass High last week after game officials misapplied a penalty with about a minute to go. The crew mistakenly erased a touchdown that had given Douglass a 25-20 lead.
The state board that oversees high school athletics rejected a Douglass protest Wednesday, so the school went to court Thursday.
Douglass wants to replay the entire game or the final minute. The judge said he wouldn’t rule on Douglass’ complaint until next week.

Jensen, Burggraaf share football MVP award

North Kitsap senior T.J. Jensen and North Mason senior Daniel Burggraaf were named co-MVPs for Olympic League 2A football earlier this week. Coaches met on Wednesday to vote on the all-league teams. The full list of selections hasn’t been released yet.
Jensen, who leads North Kitsap (10-0) against Hockinson on Saturday in the first round of the Class 2A state tournament, had 86 tackles on defense for the Vikings. Offensively, Jensen rushed for 600 yards and three touchdowns while adding 173 receiving yards and three more scores.
Burggraaf led North Mason (4-6) to a third-place finish in the Olympic League and a district playoff berth. A receiver/defensive back, Burggraaf had 582 receiving yards and five touchdowns, while posting 75 tackles, two interceptions and three fumble recoveries on defense.
Burggraaf also served as punter, kicker, kick returner and punt returner for the Bulldogs.
