UPDATE: Lancers Could Have A Quarterback in Rhys Gervais

Lakes Lancers tells Patch that Rhys Gervais, the son of Lancers' quarterback coach Dalton Gervais who played at Puyallup last year, will be donning burnt orange and blue this fall.

UPDATE: 3:30 a.m., 7/2/12

Just got this report from the Lakes Lancers group:

Rhys Gervais transferred to Lakes for the 2012 football season. He's getting 95% of the work with Sammie Long, Marquin Russell and 1st string offense.

Thanks for the update!


Here's some apparent big news for Lakes Lancers football fans to get excited about over the summer.

The Lakes Lancers group tells Patch that the school has found its quarterback: Rhys Gervais.

It appears that Lakes has found a QB ... Rhys Gervais, 6'-3", 195lbs, Sr.

Last year, Rhys played at Puyallup; he's a legacy (Scott Gervais is Lakes' QB coach and Dalton Gervais was Lakes' QB)

All of a sudden, I'm think the possibilities to go 9-0 into the playoffs is highly probable for Lakes football.

Gervais is considered one of the top football players in the state heading into the 2013 season, according to Northwest Prep Report.

Rhys is a solid prospect.  A smart kid who is on the rise and a coaches kid. Gervais is a great name to have in football around Washington!  We like his chances.

Looks like it could be fun season in Lakewood this fall. Patch will more on this story as information becomes available.

This is good news ...

Dalton Gervais played for the Lancers in 2007 and 2008 before transferring to Rogers High School in 2009. As a sophomore, Rhys attended and played QB at Santa Monica High School. Last year, Rhys Gervais played football at Puyallup High School with Josh Garnett. In the Summer of 2012, Rhys Gervais transferred to Lakes High School. Thus far, No. 6, Rhys Gervais, got 90-95% of the time at QB with Lakes' 1st string offense at the CWU camp. Since Rhys was selected as an all-league (SPSL 4A, South) 2nd Team QB and the Lancers don't have an all-league QB, I'd guess that Rhys will be No. 1 QB for Lakes in 2012. Scott Gervais is the QB coach for Lakes High School. I don't know what Scott's relationship is with Rhys, Dalton or both. I can guess. ; )
