Pacific Lutheran University yesterday announced its list of 31
recruits for its football program this fall and among those who will be joining the program is running back Bailey Takacs. Takacs was tha top running back this past season for Mount Si as he helped the Wildcats make another trip to state off a 10-2 season.

Two other seniors have also found spots at the next level. Receiver/defensive back Jake Smith will be hooking up with PLU’s arch-rival, the University of Puget Sound, and fellow receiver Trevor Daniels will be taking his talents south, to Menlo College in California. These three commitments bring the total number of Mount Si seniors heading to play college football this fall at six, and the overall number of ex-Wildcats playing at the college level to 26.

“We are very proud of our 3 latest commitments to play college football. Bailey, Jake and Trevor were integral in our program these past 2 seasons. These three student athletes did extremely well in the classroom and on and off the field,” said Mount Si head football coach Charlie Kinnune in a statement emailed to the SVSJ. “Bailey, Jake and Trevor join our 3 other commitments, Nick Mitchell(Oregon State University),Jack Nordby and Bradley Christensen (both going to Western Oregon University). This rounds out 26 former Wildcats playing football at the university level and earning college degrees.”
