– “Yelm’s Palmer goes from new kid to captain”
“James Palmer loves football because of the camaraderie, the commitment and the challenge.
“His Yelm High School teammates have noticed.
“A year ago, Palmer started a few games on defense, but never earned a regular position after joining the program as a transfer student [ form College Place High School near Walla Walla] following Yelm’s first game. This summer the Tornados voted the senior running back and defensive back a team captain,” by Dave Weber, Contributing writer, The Olympian.
