A pair of prep athletes with ties to the local area will pack up their football talents and head to Newberg, Ore., where they will take the field for George Fox University.

Logan Hanbey, who just a few years ago was suiting up for Thunder Mountain Middle School in Enumclaw, is listed as an incoming wide receiver/tight end for the Bruins.

The son of Glenn and Shari Hanbey, he is graduating from Rainier Christian High School in Covington where he is class valedictorian.

Athletically, during his senior season he was named first-team all-league (SeaTac 1B) on offense for his play at running back and first-team all-league on defense as a linebacker; he was a first-team all-league linebacker as a junior and served as team captain his junior and senior years while also earning the school’s Vanguard, Team MVP and Defensive Player of the Year awards. As a senior, the 6-foot-3, 190-pound Hanbey was No. 2 in the state in passing receptions (60), No. 1 in receiving yards per game (115.4), No. 2 in total receiving yards (1,039), No. 4 in total tackles (84) and No. 3 in total sacks (4). During the winter sports season, he was Defensive Player of the Year in basketball.

He plans on studying mechanical engineering at George Fox.

Riley Teed, who graduated from Bonney Lake High School on June 19, will join the George Fox football program as a linebacker.

The 5-11, 207-pound Teed earned first-team all-Pierce County League honors as an outside linebacker as a senior, was named his team’s defensive MVP and led the league with seven interceptions.

George Fox participates in the eight-team Northwest Conference, competing against Linfield, Whitworth, Pacific Lutheran, Pacific, Willamette, University of Puget Sound and Lewis and Clark. A season ago, the Bruins finished third with a 5-2 conference record (5-4 overall).

Riley Teed is going from Sumner to Newberg, Oregon. Submitted photo.
