    The Bellevue Christian Vikings and their first year program was off to a good start, 2-0. Now 4-3, with one of those wins coming from a forfeit makes me question if they can even pull out a season above .500 with only two games left. Over the year they have had to overcome many injuries, one of the biggest occurred last game against Tacoma Baptist with All Star performer both on and off the field Rajan Hanstad broke his collarbone in the 1st quarter. Many people at the start of the season were questioning if Rajan and others part of the BCS basketball team should even participate in this inaugural season. Now two key players on the basketball team Josh Catlett and Rajan Hanstad are injured and questionable for this basketball season.

    This now opens up two spots in the top 6 for the Bellevue Christian Vikings basketball both spots being filled by two non-football athletes. Both Bo Foster and Tor Coyle have been great friends throughout school almost doing everything together being the classic one two punch on campus they decided to be some of the few students at BCS to hold off on football even though both very strong in the weight room. Together they decided to take their talents to golf, Foster being the #1 golfer on the team and placing #3 in the Emerald City League Tournament. Looking back on it now, it sure seems like a great move for these two. Before this football season they would of had very little playing time, but now one of the two will be taking on one of the starting positions and the other being the 6th man. But should more of the basketball team of held out like these two athletes Bo and Tor? But the real question is, can either of them handle all this pressure being dumped on them this basketball season?

    This is the delema that all small schools face with injuries, there are only so many athletes to go around.If thier coaches prepare them well there should not be alot of pressure. High school basketball at the small school level is alot of fun, especially when athletes can get a chance to step up and take advantage of an opportunity given them by injuries. these ballplayers could of broke a collar bone the first week of basketball the sport has nothing to do with it.

    Drawbar you do bring up a very good point, although Rajan Hanstad is a natural on the court and would very unlikely for him to get injuries during the basketball season with his great vision on the court. I have seen this basketball team play many times, and wow do they have a lot of talent. Maybe even a state championship this year with all their returning players, but one big loss to the team was starting PG J.J. Breilh and captain of the squad. Each player looked up to him as being the only senior on the team. Bust last year they could not get it done. This year was their chance but I am just still not convinced with the team this year if they really have what it takes to win state as they would hope to this year. What do you other readers believe would be the most important factor for this school to succeed in both football and basketball?
