Many people recognized quarterback Austin Filkins’ performance for the Seahawks football team, and deservedly so, as Filkins won the 3A South Puget Sound League’s Offensive Player of the Year award.
But most Peninsula fans know Price played just as big a role, maybe bigger. The senior recovered from a midseason knee injury to be the team’s leading rusher and one of its biggest defensive playmakers. He wasn’t too shabby on the baseball diamond last spring either: He excelled as a pitcher and an outfielder for the Seahawks’ state-qualifying squad.
“This was a new experience, being a senior, being a leader, and it really changed my view on this school and this program in general,” Price said after November’s loss to Bellevue in the state football quarterfinals.
