Awesome work! One of the stats floating around Hurricane is we have the most
second place finishes without taking state. I know of at least six, 83, 84, 90,
08, 09, and 10. Is that stat accurate? And what about three second's in a row.
Who own's that honor?
South Summit had 3 second place finishes from 1998-2000. I believe Hurricane had
a second place finish in the 1989 season losing to San Juan in the final.
@sjh BroncosThat was the graduating class of 90. 89' was ranked first and
lost to Grantsville early in the playoffs.
San Juan has also had their fair share of coming in second place, 1991, 1993,
1994, 2001, and 2005 if I am correct. Not really a stat you would like to brag
You are right on the graduating class but it was the 1989 football season.
LOL @ people scoffing at a runner-up finish...all those teams while they came up
one win short of their goal were still better than all but one of the teams who
played ball that year. It makes me laugh every time people make fun of the
Bill's teams from the early 90's, they did something no other team has ever done
played in four consecutive Super Bowls. That in itself is an amazing
accomplishment but most people just remember Scott Norwood's errant field goal
attempts. Making fun of second place when your team may not have even been to a
championship is ridiculous.
To Tigerfan and others: 2nd is disappointing when the goal is to take State, but
advancing to the finals multiple times is still an achievement in and of
itself.Sentiment aside, Hurricane does have the most title game
losses without winning a championship: 6 (82, 83, 89, 08, 09, 10 seasons). Park
City and Wasatch are 0-5 in the finals. But 11 others have lost at least 6
times in the finals including Millard, Skyline and San Juan (SJ lost in 60, 91,
93, 94, 01, 05).Box Elder and Davis have the most final losses: 10
(but also won 6).Skyline lost the most consecutive finals, 4 from
2000-03 (after winning 5 straight). Box Elder (1949-51), Beaver (1985-87),
South Summit (1998-2000) and Hurricane (2008-10) lost 3 straight.As
the playoffs approach, Ill try and include charts of playoff and other records
that may be on interest.Thanks for reading and enjoy the games this
weekend.(PS, I believe the 88 Tigers class of 89 lost to Union in
a first round game.)
Sorry Tyler from Felts Facts, Deseret News, 9-30-2011Timpview's
Tyler Solorzano has kicked 118 career extra points, 11th most in state history;
he needs one more to jump into a tie for 10th. He was missed in last week's
stats. [He wasn't missed in the Timpanogos game last week]2011

To Kaysville Utah Oh i know San Juan has had a lot of tough losses
in the championships. I think in 4 of those 5 years you listed they lost by 3
points. On the other hand since 1998 We have won 5 state championships.
@G Felt, You're correct. Union won the game against Hurricane in 1988 14-9. I
remember the game quite well.
@G Felt,Good Catch, I wasn't sure and as soon as you mentioned it it came
back to me. @sher khanThat '88 loss was horrible but the Hail Mary JD came
up with two years ago had to be the biggest blow in HHS history.If
JD and Hurricane win their regions they will not meet in the Championship this
year due to the bracketing. Too bad, that would be great.If the six
losses is an omen to winning six I'm cool with that.
