Pasco, WA--- There's no long term contracts in high school football. You get four years to play. That's it.

     Chiawana wishes maybe there could be a rule change, as they return only four starters from last year's team that won the league and went to the state quarterfinals. The Riverhawks will most likely start 11 sophomore's on both sides of the ball, including sophomore quarterback Joey Zamora.

     He will lean heavily on senior running back, Jordan Downing. A first team all league selection last season, who hopes to help make it a smooth transition for Zamora, so Chiawana can try to defend its league crown.

     Zamora said, "It takes a lot of pressure off of me. Even coach said he won't ask me to win games for him. He'll just ask me to make plays. Make simple plays and stuff."

     Downing said, "We're just going to need him to manage games you know. It's really important we settle him down. Us seniors have been working with him. He's got great receivers you know. Just a day to day process. Get better everyday. Learn something new everyday. He's doing really well so far."

     Head coach Steve Graff added, "He'll be a little nervous under the lights the first time. But pretty good competitor. Great athlete, and hopefully we can get him to do things we need him to do to win football games."
