Islanders hit the gridiron for annual Turkey Bowl

About 10 Mercer Island current or past residents participated in the 36th annual Turkey Bowl on Thanksgiving Day at Garfield High School. The core group of players includes Michael Schiller, Curtis Knopf, Rich Strauss, Matt Turetsky and David Schiller. This year, Michael’s 18-month-old grandson Jaylan was a participant and is included in this photo with his parents and Island residents Karli and Josh Niehaus. Photo courtesy of Mia Blake
