Future Coug footballer nears basketball milestone

Isaac Dotson, who earlier this month signed a national letter of intent to play football at Washington State, scored 17 points in a critical basketball victory Tuesday for Newport High of Bellevue and now is just three points shy of the 1,000-point mark for his prep career. Dotson also was just named first-team all-Kingco 4A at forward. Tuesday's victory, over Mount Vernon, clinched Newport a spot in the Class 4A regional tournament. The Knights will open this Saturday in Wenatchee against Eastmont, with the winner advancing to the quarterfinals at the Tacoma Dome on Feb. 28.

On the gridiron, Dotson is a dual-threat QB and hard-hitting safety who could play a number of positions at WSU. This past fall he earned All-Area honors from the Seattle Times for his multi-positional excellence, and was named first-team all-Kingco 4A at quarterback after rushing for more than 1,000 yards with 17 touchdowns. He also passed for 700-plus yards and seven TDs.
