Talent on the high school football fields in Utah increasingly draws the attention of college coaches around the country, and last January two of them got the chance to line up against the nation's best.

Bingham's Harvey Langi and American Fork's Ryker Mathews both participated for the West squad in the U.S. Army All-American bowl in San Antonio 11 months ago.

Langi, who just finished his freshman season at the U., made his commitment to the Utes on national television during the bowl game. Mathews, who'd already committed to BYU and ended up redshirting this year, was praised as being one of the best linemen in the game.

Past local participants in the Army All-American Bowl are: Brighton's Ricky Heimuli (2010), Bingham's Austin Holt (2008), Cottonwood's Lynn Katoa (2008), Bingham's Justin Sorensen (2008), Cottonwood's Simi Fili (2007), Timpview's Matt Reynolds (2005), Hunter's Ray Feinga (2004) and Highland's Haloti Ngata (2002).

Should have included the 108-3 girls basketball game that brought national attention. That started a big debate about sportsmanship and the desire to always play your best, and whether you should keep playing or just lay down and stop competing.
