Jerome CollinsLast Season:
27-2 (WIAA Class 4A finalist)
Players to Watch:
Dec. 16-20 - Tarkanian Classic (Las Vegas, Nev.)
Federal Way has gone 105-8 over the last four seasons, with back-to-back state title runs in 2014-15 and 2015-16.
Last year, the Eagles came up just short of capturing their third state title in the last four seasons, falling 54-52 to unbeaten Gonzaga Prep (Spokane, Wash.)
in a thrilling WIAA Class 4A title game.
In 2018-19, Federal Way will again be led by their quickly rising 5-star forward McDaniels, who has developed into a top 5 player in the Class of 2019 and is set for a monumental senior season in the Evergreen State.
Alongside their 5-star senior leader, the Eagles return their starting point guard Womack and add talented Garfield transfers Eason and Crockrell Jr to a loaded roster.
Federal Way is set for a special season, with a strong likelihood of running into Gonzaga Prep again in the state title quest.
