Wildcat football players named to all-area team

December 5, 2012

By Staff

The Seattle Times announced its Star Times all-area football players Nov. 27, and three Wildcats made the grade.

Times all-area players are selected after the regular season by The Seattle Times staff and freelancers from schools in King and Snohomish counties, or in Metro and WesCo. Named to the offense team were:


Trent Riley

Mount Si, WR, 6-2, 194, Sr.

After missing last season with a knee injury that threatened to end his playing career, Riley rebounded with 59 catches, 872 receiving yards and a school-record 22 touchdowns. He also returned an interception and two punts for scores.

Cameron Van Winkle

Mount Si, K, 5-10, 160, Sr.

Committed to the University of Washington, Van Winkle is the state record holder for field goals in a career (39) and season (18, last year). This season, he made 10 field goals, 61 of 62 extra points and had all but four of his kickoffs go for touchbacks.

Named to the defense team is:


Griffin McLain

Mount Si, DL, 6-4, 245, Sr.

McLain is a big reason Mount Si’s defense allowed just 11.3 points per game, with four shutouts. During the regular season, he had six sacks and anchored a stingy defensive line. He also had five touchdown receptions as a tight end.
