OUTLOOK

Of all the unlikely places for a big-time college recruit. Tiny Brethren Christian, enrollment 580 and 4-6 last season in the Olympic League, is where Division I recruiters have been flocking to watch Priestley, one of the top quarterback prospects in the state. Brethren Christian is no stranger to the recruiting game. Since 1990, six Warriors have headed to Division I football programs. Priestley completed 144 of 256 passes for 1,600 yards and 10 touchdowns last season with 10 interceptions. Last season, his two primary targets were Christensen, who caught 54 passes for 598 yards, and Kevin Cooper, who caught 49 for 543 yards. Cooper, a first-team, all-county selection last season, is at Washington, but Christensen returns. Eien, a Warrior assistant the past six years, replaced Ken Sharrar in January.
