    Have no fear, Bellevue Faithful, the East Channel Bridge rivalry is very much alive. Due to state-wide ref shortages, the Wolverines’ trip to “the jungle” at Mercer Island High School was moved from Friday night to Thursday. Despite the short week, the Wolverines came out fast against a spirited Islander squad, thanks to TDs from Ishaan Daniels, Carson Rubin, and Kaden Matsudaira, culminating in a 35-0 halftime lead. 


    In the second half, Bellevue let their young guns get a taste of the MI rivalry under the big lights, and played out the remainder of the game under a running clock.  Final score 42-0.

    The Wolverines will look to keep extend their conference win streak next week, at home, against the Knights of Newport. It should be a Homecoming to remember!


    After two rigorous non-conference games, Bellevue kicked off KingCo 3A conference play this past Friday night against Liberty High School of Renton. The western-themed student section brought the energy all night, and the Wolverines did not disappoint.  On the shoulders of some hard running by junior Carson Rubin and sophomore Ryken Moon, a long reception by senior Ishaan Daniels, and a heaping helping of stingy defense, Bellevue took a 47-7 lead to the locker room at half time.  The second half would be spent in running clock, ending in a final of 54-13. Coach Kneip said after the game, “great to see our men get out and have fun tonight, energy on the sidelines was awesome. Lots of work to be done to get where we want to be, though. Brick by brick!”


    After their work in the back half of the Friday night game, the Bellevue JV made the Monday drive to the Sammamish Plateau, to face off against KingCo 4A opponent Eastlake Wolves. A talented Wolves team got out to a very fast start and never looked back, and the Wolverines found themselves on the wrong end of a running clock in the second half. Final score, 49-6, Eastlake. JV Head Coach Danny Salonen was upbeat after the game, “we never like to lose games like this, there are plenty of fundamentals on both sides of the ball that need cleaning up, but I can’t imagine a better opportunity for our young guys and newer players to play a ton of football. I’m already excited for next week.”  JV plays at Lake Washington on Monday 9/26.


    After starting the season in Sports Illustrated’s SB Live Top 25, the Wolverines found themselves on the wrong end of two tightly contested losses to start their 2022 campaign. 

    The first loss came at the hands of back-to-back Oregon 6A state champions, Central Catholic, on a field goal as time expired, which gave CCHS the first lead they’d had since early in the second quarter. Of the 24-23 loss, Coach Kneip said, “They’re a really, really well-coached, high quality program. These are the kinds of challenges we look for.”

    Then, this past Friday, the Wolverines made the long drive up to Lake Stevens High School, home of the preseason 4A #1 Vikings. It was a back and forth affair from the beginning that saw the Wolverines take a 21-17 lead into the locker room at halftime. But Notre Dame-bound RB Jayden Limar led a second half comeback, eventually closing the game out 37-28. After the game, Coach Kneip said, “Our job is to put our kids in the best position to win a state championship, and that means challenging ourselves against the best opponents we can possibly find for our non-conference games.”

    In both games, seniors Ishaan Daniels and George Kruger were standouts,

    The Wolverines will look to build on their learning from week 1 and 2 as they start KingCo 3A conference play against Liberty High School this Friday.

    Bellevue runs over Marysville-Pilchuck to return to state football championship game

    The Bellevue High School football team is one victory away from the ultimate return to glory. It was a reminder of the Wolverines’ glorious past that got them fired up this week thanks to comments from Marysville-Pilchuck star running back Dylan Carson that fueled them for Saturday’s matchup. Senior William Wang piled up 182 yards rushing and three touchdowns on 32 carries, and the Bellevue defense was tough as the top-seeded Wolverines laid a 27-3 licking on No. 5 Marysville-Pilchuck on Saturday in the early game of the Class 3A semifinal doubleheader at Memorial Stadium.
