Duchesne's winning streak Next » 1 of 10 « Prev

The Duchesne Eagles are just a few weeks away from the records books.

The 1A football power has won 34 straight games — which includes three 1A state championships — and Timpview's state-record 36-game winning streak is easily within reach.

Duchesne opens the season against underdog Layton Christian this Friday, which should easily result in win No. 35. After that, the Eagles hit the road for games against North Summit (2A) and Carbon (3A), games they'll also be favored in.

If Duchesne gets through the first three weeks unscathed, it could be well on its way to shattering the record book with another 13-0 season. Kanab, Rich and Monticello are the three toughest 1A games on the schedule this season, and Duchesne faces them all at home.

Head coach Jerry Cowan is doing his best to keep his team focused.

"We just talk about how we're trying to be 1-0. We're looking at our first game. What happened the last three years means nothing to this team. They have their own thing to prove, and they have to set their own destiny."

Morgan did just fine in 3A football and were a yearly contender for the championship.
