Jason Ronquillo: Yelm
Coach Ronquillo and the Yelm Tornadoes secured its first state football title with a 20-13 victory over Eastside Catholic in the WIAA 3A championship game. Senior Kyle Ronquillo made the play of a lifetime by ripping away an intercepted ball  from an Eastside Catholic defender and scampering to the end zone for the winning touchdown with under a minute remaing in the game. Yelm beat a formidable Bellevue team in a semifinal contest before meeting Eastside Catholic in the championship game. Winning back to back games against two perennial football powers, the Yelm Tornadoes have indeed earned their place in history as the 2022 WIAA 3A Football Champions and congratulations to head coach Jason Ronquillo for being voted as the 2022 WSFCA Seattle Seahawk Coach of the Year!
