Overview: Gig Harbor traditionally has been a run-oriented team with big, talented linemen, such as current Washington State center Kenny Alfred. McKay still has good athletes with size, including Sefarian-Jenkins, who already has an offer from the University of Washington, but it’s inexperienced. That’s different than the skills position, where the Tides are talented and experienced, which is part of the reason why the offense has changed to utilize some of those players more.
