Ballard High School student Jacob Ta’ase was chosen as one of the Athletes of the Week by the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) for his achievements in football.
Each week throughout the school year the WIAA recognizes twelve varsity athletes, a male and a female from each of the six classifications, who exhibited an outstanding performance the previous week.
Ta’ase was nominated by a member of the community and was selected last week for his achievements on the field during the Nathan Hale game at Memorial Stadium
Ta’ase completed 7 of 16 passes for 225 yards with four touchdowns to help defeat Nathan Hale, 38-28.
To celebrate their accomplishment, each Athlete of the Week winner awarded receives a congratulatory letter from WIAA Executive Director, Mike Colbrese, a commemorative WIAA State Athlete of the Week t-shirt, and a certificate. Winners are also posted to the WIAA website.
