Stark Truth: Ex-Wolf Peterson Also on EWU’s ‘100 for 100’ List

Oooooops!
Had to tweak the original post.
South Kitsap grad Kevin Peterson was inadvertently omitted from a list of football players with Kitsap connections who were named to Eastern Washington’s “100 for 100” All-Time Football Team.
Peterson, a ’73 SK grad, started 43 straight games for Eastern from 1994-97 and earned first-team All-American honors in ’97.
Peterson’s now coaching at Heritage High in Vancouver, Wa.
Offensive tackle Kevin Sargent from Bremerton, linebacker Derek Strey from South Kitsap and former South Kitsap coach Ed Fisher, a cornerback and punter, were also on the list of 100 of the top football players in school history as Eastern prepares for its 100th season of football.
Eastern’s had a legacy on outstanding linemen over the years, and Sargent was among the best. The 1987 Bremerton High grad played four seasons at Eastern (1988-91), earning first-team All-America honors in ’90 and ’91. He played seven NFL seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals. He was inducted in the Kitsap Sports Hall of Fame a year ago.
Strey, a 1993 SK grad, played played middle linebacker for EWU from 1993-97 and did it well enough that he earned NCAA Division 1-AA All-America honors three times in his four-year career, He finished No. 2 on EWU’s all-time tackles list with 319. He once had 18 tackles in a game. He once returned an interception 95 yards for a touchdown. He played two pro seasons, including a year with Frankfurt in NFL Europe.
Fisher, a legendary Hall of Fame high school coach who South Kitsap on the map during his time at the school, was a graduate of Shadle Park in Spokane. He was a cornerback and punter at Eastern from 1967-70 and earned all-Evergreen Conference honors his last two seasons.
Gig Harbor’s Matt Alfred, a two-time first-team All-American offensive guard from Gig Harbor, also made the list. He played from 2003-07.
