Teams were targeting Cage Schenck. When you’re a 5’7” tall cornerback, that can happen. It was during his sophomore season of 2017, as Woodinville went all the way to the Tacoma Dome. Teams like Graham-Kapowsin and Richland challenged him over-and-over with long passes down the sideline. But time-after-time, Schenck leapt high with his athletic ability to swat the ball away.
Accolades started pouring in his junior season. Schenck was named First Team All-Kingco 4A as a cornerback, wide receiver, punt returner AND kick returner. A local sportswriter even festooned his growing legend with a garish nickname. In a 46-7 win over Redmond on Sept.28, Schenck intercepted a pass, scored on a touchdown pass, and returned a punt 52 yards for an electrifying touchdown.
