Football: Washington OK with flying under the radar

Drew Karpen profiles the Washington football team.

"There are certain teams in each classification that are expected to not fold under playoff pressure. South Fayette and Aliquippa are two in Class AA that pose as a WPIAL championship threat.

But they aren't the only two.

The Washington Prexies are possibly the least talked about undefeated team in the WPIAL. After a 42-7 home win against McGuffey in Week 9, the Prexies completed their second consecutive undefeated regular season, capturing the Interstate Conference championship.

"We don't mind flying under the radar," Washington coach Mike Bosnic said. "If anything, it helps us. We are capable of playing and beating anybody.""



Football: Washington dominating the Interstate Conference

Written by Brad Everett on .

Washington has been the class of the Class AA Interstate Conference this season.

And it's not even close.

Few teams in the WPIAL have looked as dominant as Washington, which appears to be headed for a second consecutive conference title. The Little Prexies are 7-0 overall and 6-0 in conference play. They have won each of their games by at least 30 points, boast the No. 1 scoring defense in Class AA (6 points per game) and the No. 2 scoring offense (50.6 points per game).

Coach Mike Bosnic's team is coming off a 49-7 non-conference win at New Brighton last week. Markel Pulliam had a big game, passing for two touchdowns, rushing for a touchdown, and returning an interception for a touchdown. Kurt Adkins rushed for a pair of 63-yard touchdowns.


Washington 2015 Football Preview

Washington coach Mike Bosnic said practice has been a lot different this year after the school added a turf field in the offseason. But once the season gets underway, don't expect things to change much at all.

Bosnic's bunch has a ton of talent back and is the favorite to repeat as Interstate Conference champion. The Little Prexies went 38-8 the previous four seasons, reaching at least the WPIAL semifinals twice, including last season when they finished 11-1.

"I think we've been successful, and that has created high expectations," Bosnic said. "Right now, I think the expectation is to win the conference title and to try to win the WPIAL title."

"Washington High School's DeQuay Isbell was the second-fastest 400-meter runner in WPIAL Class AA his sophomore season.

He held that same distinction his junior season.

Isbell will end his high school career at the very top.

After finishing as the runner-up the previous two years, Isbell claimed the 400-meter dash title at the WPIAL Class AA championships last week at Baldwin High School."
