State Champions

The Eagles finished what the team started at the beginning of the season winning the 4A state title beating Davis 65-46 Saturday night at the Tacoma Dome.

Federal Way used a variety of presses and defensive schemes to keep Davis off balance.

In the second half the Eagles offense opened up shooting 52 percent.

Jalen McDaniels lead the scoring with 16 points, grabbing eight rebounds.

Christian Jones knocked down 12 points and grabbed 13 boards.

D’Jimon Jones scored 12 with two assists, three rebounds and Flavors scored 11 with two assists and four rebounds.

Viont’e Daniels scored eight with six boards and five assists.

Coach Jerome Collins lead the Eagles to a state title in 2009. He said the win was even more fulfilling than 2009.

“Not to take anything away from what was accomplished than, but with Malik (Montoya – the team leading scorer the previous two seasons) going down the way he did, a week before the season, we had total buy in and they dedicated the season to Malik,” Collins said. “Complete journey, and that’s what it is was.”

Malik Montoya torn his anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee ending his season.

Viont’e Daniels said, “I am never going to forget this the rest of my life. Good group of guys, good group of coaches.”
