Some great players. Strong work kids. Remember to study too....

Springville, Utah

What about KJ Hall of Maple Mountain coming in and playing QB. He helped direct a 20 point come from behind win against Lehi...with only 8 minutes to go???????
He also finished the game with 140+ rushing yards on 13 carries. You only cover the "BIG" schools and don't touch the little schools.

Straight Forward>>>
utah, UT

please dont throw in anyone that the dnews doesnt already have on their radar, that would mean the staff would actually have to do some research and get around the state to evaluate talent that isnt already on the major recruiting network.....

congrats KJ, keep it up.....


Chase Christiansen- Stansbury, 200 rushing yards, 4 touchdowns, On Park City homers. Looks pretty good to me. Oh, by the way he a sophomore.

just fyi
American Fork, UT

The difference between Chase and KJ is that Chase performed against a higher caliber team. Plain and simple.


Lehi is not the same as in years past. They will hold their own in non-region games and maybe surprise some team in the region.


i think they made a list of best recruits called them the best performers i don't follow every game but i do know that stats of the kids on this list is not best of last week i think it shows how shallow the staff is. Also if were throwing a name in to the bucket how about dj nielson from logan 190 yards rushing 175 passing in leading the logan high grizzlies win over cottonwood

Bountiful, UT

I'll take those Gunter boys at Box Elder ahead of any of these guys on any day.

Logan, UT

I second that, lhs_grizz04, DJ is perhaps showing a little of Riley, in some ways maybe a bit better.

H-Town, UT

So, we just gonna act like Brian Scott from Hurricane didn't rush for 182 yards, and score 4 touchdowns vs. West Jordan? No love for Southern Utah?


182 yards and 4 tds against a west jordan is way good ill give props to brian scott he deserves to be on the list and hurricane will get there love in november res
