For Michael Matthews, one of the two defining moments of his senior year was four years in the making. The other began to manifest much, much earlier.

Matthews, a linebacker from Camas, Washington, completed two dream scenarios during his final year at Camas High: As an all-state linebacker, he helped lead the Papermakers to their first state football championship, erasing heartbreaking memories of a last-second loss in the state title game four years ago; And he joined his dream school when he committed to Montana on Nov. 10.
