Here are a couple more guys we just updated our files with and in the Double Dip we bring your Two Great Athletes In One nicely wrapped little story.
Moving on with our follow ups on this years squad we catch up to Auburn Mountainview's Nicholas Aumua and Kings High School stud QB Billy Green.
Let's start this off today with Nick. His team is finished for the season so we want to make sure we cover him right away!
Nicholas Aumua, 6'3"-250 Pounds- Defensive End / TE /OL- 2013
Only 1 or 2 guys in the Northwest can get off the football like this guy. And once he is charging the offense he is tough to stop.
His strength is his first step. He is going to win that battle 9 out of 10 times. His next move is going to set the O'linemen up to open his hips and is he does Nick is past him. He has a solid set of Rip / Swim Moves and is a very good hand fighter.
His best asset I think is his leverage and pad level. Add to that his ability to get O'linemen off balance and he is a really nice package.
Aumua says he has heard a lot from Big Sky Level Schools but not too much recently. He is planning to take some visits and thinks that PSU or EWU as well as CWU might be a good home for him. Time will tell.

Billy Green - Kings High School 2013 QB
6'2"- 201 Pounds - BYU Commit
The kid has his squad at #1 and for a reason. He has 2,870 yards 46 TD's so far and has rushed for 400 yards and 5 more TD's. That is about 3,200 yards and 51 TD's and pretty sweet. He threw for a 70% completion ratio and that is exactly why BYU loves him. This kid is poised, accurate, and does not make many mistakes.
King's beat Hoquiam in the First Round of the 1A WIAA State Football Championships 28-13 and scored 3 TD's in a row to come from behind to win. They play Monetsano this week in round two.
We talked to Green about the come from behind win last week.
"It sure was a come from behind situation but we were never worried nor rattled. We knew we were going to make a comeback. The offense got things going and the Defense stepped up," said Green.
How did they do it exactly?
'We had 4 total drives in the second half. We scored on three of them and the defense stopped them on 5 drives in a row; 3 were 3 and outs, an interception, and a fumble recovery."
Are they ready for Montesano?
"Yes I think so. It is one week at a time but this is the week we want to win. This is our 4th straight year to the Quarter finals and we have lost the last three years. So this is the year to get past this. 2 More Weeks has been our Motto this year. We need to get over this hump," he concluded.
Two more weeks indeed. That will put Kings in the Tacoma Dome for a State Title shot. That for Billy Green and his team is the mission no doubt.
We will keep tabs on all of these guys as the year comes to a close. Nick Aumua and Billy Green are just two of the top players we continue to monitor and cover here.
