Justin Haase was a receiver for PHS for two years. In his senior year, he gained 1,065 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns.
Haase had three offers: Weber State University in Utah, Central Washington University and Western Oregon University. He decided that Weber State was the best fit for him.
“Going [to Weber State] seemed like the right choice for me and I wanted to get a good education,” Haase said.
Haase took a break from football in his sophomore year but then he came back in his junior year, deciding that he wanted to stick with the sport into college.
“It’s been a lifelong dream to play sports beyond high school,” Haase said.
Haase has just a few more months left of high school, then he is off to Weber State. However, Haase says he will miss his Viking teammates.
“I’m excited to get on to the next level but I also really enjoyed the team we had this year,” Haase said.
As Darius Morrison’s high school journey comes to an end, he has seized an opportunity to play at the next level.
Morrison recently committed to Central Washington University on a football scholarship. Morrison was a three-year starter and became a three-star-recruit wide receiver at the start of his junior year. Football has been a part of his life he says, as he has been playing since he was in grade school.
“Football is my favorite thing to do so I don’t want to end it after high school,” Morrison said.
Morrison put up a strong senior year with 1,956 total yards and 11 touchdowns. These statistics helped Morrison with the offers he received from Central Washington University, Montana State University and Northern and Western Oregon University. Out of all the schools he could choose, Morrison committed to Central.
“I signed [there] because of the brotherhood at Central and a lot of past PHS students attend there,” Morrison said.
