ON THE RADAR
Kamiakin’s Head Coach Scott Biglin will be coming into his 4th year. In his previous 3 he has established himself as one of the best young Coaching minds in the State. In 2009 Kamiakin lost in the State playoffs to eventual State runner up Ferris, 2010 Kamiakin went to State and lost to dynasty Bellevue and in 2011 lost in the State semis to eventual State Champion Bellevue.
Coach Biglin has accomplished this feat with 3 different Senior quarterbacks running his high powered spread offense. In 2009 Corey Hutchinson had 21 touchdown passes to lead the Cascade division of the CBBN, In 2010 Joey Jensen had 28 touchdown passes to lead the 3A CBBN and a Kamiakin record and in 2011 Jason Hutchinson had 21 touchdowns which also led the 3A CBBN.
That is why when Coach Biglin told me that 6’1” 180 pound Sophomore Quarterback Kylle Robertson has the potential to be the best Quarterback he’s ever had, this automatically caught my attention.
Robertson will have the rare opportunity to learn the position by starting for Biglin for the next 2 years.
“I plan on attending the Nike Football Training Camp on June 10th in Oregon.” Said Robertson when talking about off-season plans.
Robertson has only been playing quarterback since his 8th grade year. In 9th grade he led Kamiakin’s Freshman team to an undefeated year.
“He threw 23 touchdown passes for our freshman team.” Said Biglin.
“For a kid who’s only been playing the position just one year previous, that’s an amazing accomplishment” Said Biglin when talking about Robertson’s Freshman year
As a sophomore last year Robertson sat behind Senior Quarterback Jason Hutchinson. Although Robertson was Kamiakin’s backup, his number would get called against Seattle Prep in the State playoffs. He didn’t light things up offensively, but he displayed incredible poise and leadership. He made good decisions, didn’t force too many throws and used his legs to get first downs and helped control the clock in a defensive battle.
“He showed me that he could keep his cool in high pressure situations.” Said Biglin about Robertson’s playoff performance.
After it’s all said and done with Robertson’s strong arm, and athletic ability, combined with Biglin’s knowledge, Kamiakin may have to rewrite some passing records.
This is definitely a young man to keep your eyes on.
