Yelm’s Jason Ronquillo Named Seahawks Coach of the Year

From The Chronicle (Centralia):

After Jason Ronquillo led the Yelm Tornados to their first ever state championship victory, the head football coach was met with some high and deserved praise.

During the Sunday, Dec. 11 contest between the Seattle Seahawks and the Carolina Panthers, Ronquillo was named the Seahawks Washington State Coach of the Year.

Ronquillo, who was also named Seahawks Coach of the Week, following Yelm’s 46-6 victory against Union in week two, guided the Tornados to a perfect 14-0 season.

After the team was questioned about whether they’ve “faced real opponents,” Ronquillo and the Tornados responded by defeating the Kennewick Lions who were the 2021 3A State Championship runner-ups, followed by the 2021 3A State Champion Bellevue Wolverines, and powerhouse Eastside Catholic to cinch the championship title this year.

In Ronquillo’s nine seasons at the helm for the Tornados, he has collected a record of 69-35 and three total South Sound Conference championships.
