Dixon, Moore at head of Oly League pack

From KITSAP NEWS Reports

The reason Olympic and Klahowya both advanced to the state preliminary round in football this fall was simple: It all started with the running game.

And while both teams used a multi-headed running approach, both schools had a standout not only on the team, but in the entire Olympic League.

Oly’s Larry Dixon was named the Oly League’s 3A Offensive MVP while Klahowya’s Andre Moore won the 2A honors.

But those were just the tip of the iceberg. Below are the 2007 All-Olympic League 3A and 2A Football Teams.
