Portland Interscholastic League football preview
Three-year glance: 7-20 (.259)
Last year: 5-4, 4-2 PIL
Playoff history: Cleveland has made the playoffs in 1984, 1986, 1988, 2006 and 2008. Cleveland is 0-5 all-time in playoff games.
Coach: Wayne Harris, first season
Outlook: Wayne Harris has worked at Cleveland for 18 years, serving students with special needs, and also coached the Cleveland track and field team for nine seasons. But there was one job that he always coveted: the school’s head football coaching position. “My dream job,” Harris said. Not only is Harris excited about his new role, but he’s also thrilled with the amount of talent he gets to work with in his first season. Junior Jonathon Weaver is a versatile athlete at wide receiver and defensive back. As a sophomore, Weaver earned second-team all-league honors at defensive back. Cleveland also features junior quarterback Scott Brant, who will get to grow under new offensive coordinator John Percich. Last season’s 5-4 campaign (aided by a forfeit win over Roosevelt) was Cleveland’s first winning season since 2006. It came two years after a frustrating 0-9 record in 2010. From 2007-2011, Cleveland went a combined 9-37. But last season’s success has boosted the team’s spirits and Harris is eager to deliver the school its first playoff football victory. Harris, a former all-state running back at Putnam who played at Portland State, has been a football assistant for six area high schools over the years and has taken information from each stop to formulate his own vision of a program. Harris replaces Gary Sletmoe, who resigned after five seasons.
