Washington was picked by the coaches to win District 2A-3 this season, just ahead of defending champion Lindsay.

The Warriors’ most pressing void to fill from a season ago is at quarterback, where Glenn Stowe is set to be the starter.

The 6-foot-2, 190-pound junior is replacing graduated standout Brock Harmon.

“Glenn had been a wide receiver for a long time, but we knew we’d have a day when we’d have to replace Brock, so we started working him at quarterback,” said Washington coach Brad Beller. “We’ve tweaked the offense a little bit, because Brock could do things that other guys just can’t do. Also, Glenn has a lot of veterans around him that can help ease him into his role.”

Those veterans include seniors Brady Kulbeth (WR/DB), Luke Ladlee (RB/LB), and Jake Massey (WR/DB).

“Those guys are home-run threats with a lot of speed,” Beller said. “They don’t have a lot of size, but they can really create big plays with their speed. They’ve also been playing since they were freshmen, so they understand the offense well.”

Washington finished as the district runner-up last season after falling to Lindsay in Week 10, a game in which Harmon suffered a significant knee injury.

OFFENSIVE LINE, QB LEAD WAY AT LEXINGTON

Lexington coach Jeff Hall expects the strength to come from an experienced offensive line led by three-year starter Tyler Brown.

The 6-foot-6, 300-pound junior will help provide protection for veteran quarterback Kyle Hokett.

The senior is entering his second season as the starter. He threw for 2,000 yards and rushed for 700 last season while leading the Bulldogs to the playoffs.
