Langhi made an error of which he feels bad. He may lose scholarship offers and may not play in the Army All American game over his mistakes. The team didn't need him for Hunter and still won't for Northridge. We only hear about Bingham's offense. Their defense is better than the offense.

I think Inoke showed Harvi's #'s are not as great as some would think. I guess it proves the theory correct. That anyone can run for big yards behind their line. That shouldn't be meant as a diss on Inoke as he is really good but a compliment on their line


Good work Bingham, You are doing exactly what every fan expected. You have proven you are loaded and don't miss a beat when a starter is out. REAL NICE JOB!! I have watched several Northridge games this season and if I were you I would not take these guys too lightly. Northridge took fremont, the region 1 champs to double OT losing by 7, and lost by 3 to defending champs and last yrs state runner ups, Davis. They are very quiet with there success and are very scrappy. Northridge's offense is loaded with untapped talent that very few know about and the "D" is abusive. Bingham is no doubt the best in the state, but I think this MAY be a better match up than you think. It would be foolish to say any team will beat Bingham, but a good close game is expected. Best of luck to all!! What a great time of year.

Kameron and "The Truth Serum", thank you. Thank you for proving me right when I told Harvey yesterday that he's drawing so much attention simply because he's such a high profile target. The title of this article proves it as well.
Harvey is unlikely to lose scholarships over a trespassing charge. The same goes for the invitation to the U.S. Army All-American Game.
The college recruiters aren't a bunch of idiots who don't know how to assess talent. There's a reason that Harvey Langi has offers from all over the country, and it's not because he simply has a dominant offensive line in front of him.
Someone wrote in their comment the other day that the college recruiters know more than local "armchair quarterbacks" and that person was right.
Say what you want about Harvey Langi's abilities, he'll just go out and prove you wrong.

I would like to see someone push Bingham to make them earn it this year. But it won't be Northridge. Cottonwood and LP have the best chance of providing any pressure.

LP Fan!

lp might have the dfence to slow them down. But not stop them which is good for them. And who knows jordan might be the only one to put up the most numbers to keep it close. Anything can happen and maybe lp can stop them. That would be awesome

I think the only question left is who is going to bring the cupcakes to Binghams 5A Championship victory party.

What it showes is that Bingham is deep. Yes they have a good line but 2 of there linemen are barely over 200lbs. If inoke wouldnt have blown his knee out last year would have split time with harvey. He is a unbelievable back, always has been since he was little. Harvey will not lose one offer because of what happened. Bronco Mendenhall was at the game trying to get harvy to commit and if there not backing off no one else will for sure. Bottom line is that Bingham is better coached that any other high school around, there back ups are prepared.

"shows that Bingham is deep" and that "Bingham is better coached than any high school around"

Its a first round game and they were down one player. Not as big of an accomplishment as you're making it out to be.

To Truth Serum...Remember Harveys #'s usually reflect only playing half a game. If Coach Peck and his staff were only interested in #'s Harvey could have rushed for 2500-3000 yards this year. The o-line deserves alot of credit, they are a polished group, but Harvey is a special back and is dominate. He breaks takles that alot of less talented backs cannot, and he is a great blocker in passing situations. I look for Harvey to have a huge game against Northridge. I may or may not agree with the punishment Harvey received for his antics over the past two weeks, but I don't know the whole story either. None the less, he's a great football player and I hope he goes far.

I have not seen NorthRidge play and I am not putting them down or anything but I am going by the only common opponents they have had,
1. Bingham crushed Alta 49-26, NorthRidge 21-14.
2. Bingham destroyed Viewmont 51-0, NorthRidge 30-7.
And the only other observation I can make is NorthRidge lost to Davis, who just got hammered by Jordan. So I think it may be a good matchup but as usual I don't think it will be close, NorthRidge will not be able to stop the multiple weapons Bingham has on Offense. NorthRidge has traditionally been a pound it out on the ground team as well and we all know that spells Doomed with a capital D against Peck's Defense. Looking forward to the game though.

That isnt why they won that game, its just a fact I was pointing out.

Was Langi missing the reason Bingham scored fewer points? Yea, I know, 34 is respectable and maybe that is a tribute to the Hunter D but in the 9 games Langi has played, Bingham has scored: 48, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 52, 56, and 63. So 34 is way down from that.

I think Northridge is tough but this Bingham team is to good. Hope Riverton makes a run and we have an all region 3 final.

100 yards in 4 carries. Pretty amazing. Like I said more the line than the back.

Every article about Bingham or Langi brings out the haters. I love the constant comments on all the Bingham articles about how it is the O-line and you could plug in any RB. Give me a break. I am not a fan, but have seen them a few times this year and 4-5 times last year. The line last year was much better. They have 1 returning starter, who is solid. I think he is headed to USU. The moved a D-lineman over, who is by far their best lineman either side of the ball. From what I hear, they lost 2 year starters at Center (gone to Navy), Tackle (USU) and Guard who was Mr. Utah last year (BYU) and a TE (BYU). This year's center is a converted FB and undersized, the rest of the line looks big, but a few friends I have out that way told me before the season, the worries were O-line and DBs, both seem to be doing just fine. From what I understand, their line coach is awesome.

I also know #5 would be a starter at ANY other HS, he is amazing. They are deep.

love how all the disparaging Bingham and Langi comments get posted and those of us who have constructive comments about the actual game and responses to the bingham haters get tossed out. Thanks

Alpine, UT

I don't know much about Northridge, but I'm looking forward to the Jordan vs. Bingham game. Both very explosive offenses, but Bingham's D get the win. I hope Northridge can put up a fight this week, from what i've heard they are a great team.

Layton, UT

We'll put up a fight no doubt about it. Will it be enough most likely not but you never know what can happen! Im expecting it to be Bingham's toughest game of the season because we are a balanced team. The run will probably get stuffed but we have shown that we can throw the ball a bit if we need to. Good luck knights and give it all you got!

Roy, UT

I havn't seen Bingham play, but obviously they are a powerhouse and northridge has there hands full. But I have seen Northridge play this year and I wouldn't count them completely out. Afterall this is football and anything can happen under those friday night lights. GO FOOTBALL!!!

South Jordan, UT

RafeM59, I've seen them both play this year, Bingham just about every game. I'd count them out completely.
