-As we told you they were going to do last week, the program honored longtime assistant coach Eric Riley for his 25 years of coaching the Wildcats at Friday night’s game. In a pregame ceremony, Mount Si athletic director Greg Hart and head coach Charlie Kinnune presented Riley with a plaque recognizing his service to the program, and Hart also presented the now-former Wildcat assistant with a lifetime pass to all Kingco sporting events, also in recognition of Riley’s long service to high school athletics. Hart and Mount Si football booster president Jeff Mitchell also made remarks to the crowd praising Riley for his long career as a coach and the impact it had on players in the program.

-Also, MSHS’s football boosters are holding an auction this coming Friday night, October 2, at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge. The event, running from 6-10 pm, costs $60 per person to get in, and proceeds from the event will help go support the Wildcat football program helping them pay for suuch things as jerseys, equipment, and fees for offseason tournaments. Seating is limited. To purchase tickets, visit the Mount Si football website at right in our news links.
