Throughout the month of August, the Deseret News has feverishly published comprehensive information about every single high school football program in the state of Utah. It's safe to say the sheer volume of information about Utah high school football on DeseretNews.com goes unrivaled in the Utah sports media market.

In Utah high school football, there are 103 teams, 15 regions and six divisions, but only one question on hand today: how much high school football knowledge has sunk in to your mind during the month of August?

Take our high school football quiz based on the 103 team-by-team previews the Deseret News high school sports team has published throughout August and find out.

Note: The answer to every question can be found in at least one of our high school preview articles. To make it easier, here's a page that links to every single one … and don't feel guilty if you look for the answers. It's an open-book quiz.

The question about who has had four coaches in four years is in correct. Bonneville and Ben Lomond both have had four head coaches in the past four seasons. Do I get some bonus points for pointing that out?!?!

Allen, TX

Just Saying 2: I'll give you a bonus point, but I'm taking it away because you misspelled (ironically) 'incorrect'.

The only thing I know about Utah HS football is, it's inferior to Texas HS football. :-)

J-TX, Yeah, but isn't that like saying, college football is inferior to the NFL (on the basis of talent)?

TX HS football pretty much surpasses all other states HS football. I mean Friday Night Lights wasn't based around CA or FL HS football.

Also it might also be the word "new". While Bonneville has had a different coach in each of the last 4 years, I believe that the first coach in that line would be Matt Williams who coached for a number of years. So he would not have been considered a "new" head coach in his last year.

But that would imply that Ben Lomond has had 5 different head coaches in the last 5 years.

OK, I cheated and looked at the articles. Ben Lomond did not have 5 coaches in 5 years. It has had 4 coaches in 4 years. The 4th coach back was also a multi year coach. So Just Saying 2 is right. The answer to the coaches question is both Bonneville and Ben Lomond.

Argh. Thanks for catching my mess-up, guys.

According to Maxpreps there are 7 schools playing football with Eagles as their mascots. American Leadership Academy, Duchesne, Juan Diego Catholic, Layton Christian Academy, Maple Mountain, Millard, and Skyline. Juan Diego Catholic are the Soaring Eagles and Maple Mountain are the Golden Eagles. The Eagle is the most commonly used mascot for Utah High Schools.

Your answer on the largest game crowd is incorrect. The 3A state champion in 1987 was Timpview. They beat Bear River at Rice stadium.

Former Sports Director
Ogden, UT

Looking at the Utah football almanac site it says both Timpview and Mountain Crest were 3A state champs in 1987. Obviously one was 3A and one was 4A. Not sure which was which.

Former Sports Director

I take that back. That site says Timpview lost in the semifinals to Mountain Crest. So I am not sure what is right.
