Happy to see Enumclaw, White River football rivalry renewed

The cross-river rivals White River and Enumclaw have been an awesome rivalry for decades. I have lived in Buckley all my 50 years and as far back as I can remember this game was one to look forward to. There are many generations of Hornets, White River and Enumclaw, that know and love this rivalry.

As a fan, former player and parent of players of White River Hornets football I was very disappointed when it was announced by the recently resigned Enumclaw coach that they weren’t interested in playing White River. I was very happy to hear Athletic Director Chris Gibson and his counterpart in Enumclaw appreciate the history of this rivaly and have made the effort to bring it back.

Thank you to all that have renewed this decades-old tradition.
