THREE TO SEE

Caadyn Stephen, USC, Camas football

Caadyn Stephen, offensive tackle

The most decorated of the Papermakers’ stout O-line. The three-star OT (per 247 Sports) holds offers from USC, Arizona, Cal among others.

Jackson Clemmer, Camas football

Jackson Clemmer, receiver

The tall wideout has grown since his junior season, and will be the top target in the Papermakers’ pass-heavy offense.

Tristan Souza, offensive lineman

Stalwart offensive guard. Souza holds an offer from Northern Colorado.

OUTLOOK

Camas could be one of the few teams across the state that can lose seven all-league selections and return a much more sound team in 2019. 

The Papermakers return quarterback Jake Blair, who started on and off as a sophomore last season, and Jackson Clemmer, a tall, athletic receiver who coach Jon Eagle anticipates will have a breakout year. 

But what separates Camas, and makes it a state contender, is its offensive line. Caadyn Stephen, who has fielded multiple Pac-12 offers, headlines a line that mirrors the size and strength of a college line. 

That will give Blair ample time to operate, but will it be enough to separate the Papermakers in a league that contains defending 4A state champion Union and Skyview, which returns the vast majority of its starting lineup?
