OUTLOOK

The West Seattle Wildcats had a tough year in 2018, going 3-7 and finishing near the bottom of the Metro League Valley Division.

That team was made up of a huge senior class, but head coach Jeff Scott said the ‘Cats have “deep sophomore and junior class[es]” ready to step in.

Offensively, they’ll rely on the legs of first team all-league running back Tom Nguyen, who enters his senior year.

On defense, the Wildcats have a skilled secondary and some physical players on the defensive line, and will hope to improve from last year’s effort, in which they gave up the second most points in their division.
