The Mirror's All-City football team

The Mirror

The 2004 high school football season in Federal Way wasn’t the best, in terms of wins and losses. The schools — Beamer, Federal Way, Decatur and Jefferson — finished as the bottom four teams in the South Puget Sound League South Division with a combined record of 12-28. But there was still plenty of individual talent across the city.

Here’s a thumbnail look at the members of the Mirror’s All-City Football Team:

All-City Offense

Quarterback — Erik Fitzgerald (TJ)

The senior was second in the SPSL South with 1,154 yards passing (128 yards a game), including 326 in the Raiders’ victory over Beamer in their last game. He tallied eight touchdowns, but Fitzgerald did have a problem with interceptions — throwing 14.

Running back — C.J. Green (FW)

The senior went over 1,000 yards for the second straight season for the Eagles. Green finished with 1,031 yards and 17 touchdowns in 10 games.

Running back — Dominique Small (Beamer)

The 6-foot-2, 200-pounder was a difference-maker when he ran the ball for the 4-6 Titans. Small rushed for 1,072 yards on 158 carries (6.7 yards a carry) and 11 touchdowns. He is being looked at by schools like Eastern and some 1-AA schools.

Wide receiver — Tim Satterwhite (TJ)

The junior caught 21 passes for 337 yards and four touchdowns for the Raiders.

Wide receiver — Mike Waller (Beamer)

The Titan senior was a game-breaker all season long and might be the fastest player in the city. Started the year as Beamer’s quarterback, but moved to wide receiver and even carried the ball as a tailback at times. Had two touchdown catches in the Titans’ final game, a win over Kentlake.

Wide receiver — Larell Ezell (FW)

The senior caught eight passes for 183 yards and a touchdown and also ran the ball 37 times for 251 yards and two touchdowns.

Offensive line — Jason Summers (TJ)

The junior was a solid pass blocker from the guard position for the Raiders, despite being undersized at 6-1, 205.

Offensive line — Alex Grays (FW)

The 5-11, 185-pounder was a ferocious blocker from his tackle position. Grays opened holes for 1,000-yard rusher C.J. Green.

Offensive line — Eric Cerf (FW)

The senior was the anchor for the Federal Way offensive line. The 6-3, 290-pounder played guard for the Eagles.

Offensive line — Ryan Tober (Decatur)

One of the tougher players in the SPSL South, Tober was a solid blocker in the Gators’ Wing-T offense.

Offensive line — Elliot McFeely (Beamer)

The junior might have been the Titans’ most effective lineman during the season from his center position, according to Beamer coach Jeff Housman.
