Major Milestone Next » 1 of 11 « Prev

Sometime in late September or early October, Skyline coach Roger Dupaix should reach a remarkable milestone. Already the all-time winningest coach in Utah high school football history, Dupaix is just six victories away from his 300th career win.
The big question is when will the magical moment occur?
With a preseason schedule that includes three 3A teams — albeit all very good ones — No. 300 could come fairly early. The earliest it could occur is Sept. 23 at Herriman if the Eagles start the season off 6-0. More realistically, it will likely occur either Sept. 30 at Hillcrest or Oct. 7 at home against Westlake.
Skyline ends the regular season at home against Olympus on Oct. 14. If Dupaix hasn’t locked up No. 300 already, beating Skyline’s fiercest rival in the battle for “The Rock” would be the dream scenario.
Dupaix has been coaching for 34 years, with a career record of 294-108. He posted a 55-38 record at Highland from 1977-85, and his record at Skyline ever since is 239-70.

after watching the Alta Black and White game on Saturday it's a major stretch to put them on par with last year's Bingham team. Perhaps the play calling was designed not to show any of the team's strengths, but their D-1 tight end only had one ball thrown to him and was wide open on several occasions? Either the qb doesn't know what he's doing or they didn't want to show Richards off.

South Jordan, UT

I watched the Bingham's Blue and White game on Friday and the defense is definitely their strong point. The first offense struggled to move the ball on their first defense. I know they had a couple of RB's sitting out with some pulled hamstrings I believe. Lail made a couple of nice throws and their WR's made a couple of nice catches. But I did see him miss a couple of quick slants that were either high or behind the receivers. I'm sure their O will get better in sync, but their Defense right now is definitely their strong suit so far.
