Prep Sports Weekly for Thursday, March 4, 2021. Finally, after 364 days without talking about local high school sports games; we get to do just that. We open with Austin Johnson, the Mountlake Terrace baseball alum that recently ran 80 miles to raise funds and awareness for mental health. It’s our first guest live from Hawaii. Then it’s our first Coaches Carousel of the season with the Head Coach of the Granite Falls Tigers Football Team Brandon Davis; his team defeated Sultan 22-20 in overtime in Friday night’s Black & Blue Bowl. The Head Coach of the Jackson Timberwolves Volleyball Team Mindy Staudinger is next, her team defeated Edmonds Woodway 3-0 in their season opener on Tuesday night. Finally, our resident historian Larry O’Donnell is on with the story about the 1894 football game between Everett and Snohomish.
