Portland High senior trades basketball for rowing
Charlie Lyall has his sights set on a powerhouse crew team at the University of Washington.

... “I’ve almost fallen in love with the fun aspects of it, being on the water, working out with friends,” Lyall said of rowing. “Now I want to succeed at it. I want to push myself to be the fastest that I can be and to see if I can realize the potential that people are telling me I have.”

Lyall, 18, is a 6-foot-4-1/2, 225-pound recruited walk-on for Washington. Finding a spot in the lineup will be difficult but not unprecedented at a renowned program with a deep history.

“Development is a cornerstone of Washington rowing,” said Matt Rung, the men’s assistant coach and recruiting coordinator. “Every year there are five, six walk-on guys who do very well.”
