That pro bowl player also went to Logan High.....
It's all speculation. Hansen and Nelson definitely don't care who s
better in HS or in college. Those who doubt DJ's prospects should probably
explain to his brother Riley why Riley is starting over a
guaranteed-true-blue-All-American High School recruit-model type-Jake Heaps.I'll tell you why...because you can never be sure who will show up at
the next level. Utah's last homegrown NFL Pro Bowl product didn't even start
until his Junior year in high school...and only got one offer to play D1--- from
USU. Best player I ever played with/against in high school never started a D1
game. You never know.Who cares?They are both fantastic
players to watch. I haven't had this much fun watching a high school football
team since Logan's 2005 team. As for Logan v. East, obviously East
has something to prove. I still have Logan winning by 20+. East will likely hold
LHS to below 30 points, but I don't think East can score on Logan's defense.
No doubt, Hansen will be the better D1 prospect. And will contribute at then
next level. DJ prolly not... But DJ is the better high school player, plain
and simple. No one dominates the game this year like DJ does. Just like the
year his brother took it all, Yea Riley is not in college what he was in High
school. cause he's flippin 5'10" He still holds the national record for
touchdowns in a year in high school (84) His brother is not too far behind..
Can't deminish the skill just cause it doesn't translate to the next level.
Also I take issue that Logan's D is said to be not as good as LP's LP has
given up 40 plus several times this year. Logan's Highest is 30
That was my 3rd time seeing D.J. play and I've seen Chase Hansen play 3 times as
well. I will tell you that they are comparable. Their passing ability is about
equal. Chase may be bigger and stronger but D.J. knows HOW to run, he has
running back instincts. The only thing is that though they may be neck and neck
right now, Nelson seems to have hit his ceiling. And Chase Hansen looks to have
more room to grow. Go Logan beat East.
I hope Logan gets beat bad. I hope East wins by 50+ points. The way they pad
stats for the QB is ridiculous. Logan should have ran the clock out at 8 min
left in the game. They should be ashamed.
Hansen will be a better college player. DJ is a better High School player. The
difference is DJ controls every play, no huddle, line audibles, he runs it or
throws it on every play. He is the guy.Hansen has options around him,
other guys get touches etc. I watched both teams play Bountiful, and Logan is
the better team. I said it three weeks ago, not changing the story now.Logan and East,The Braves will be great the next four years, so enjoy the
DJ looks and plays like his brother. Don't know how well that pans out at the
next level (I don't think his older brother is a good D1 QB). I'd give him a
shot at another position. Regardless, at the high school level he is incredibly
smart and tough and very good at running Logan's offense and making big plays
out of nothing. With that said, the truth is Logan has spent the year making
big plays out of something because they've got a well oiled machine. DJ is a
great leader and playmaker for them. I don't think he holds a candle to Chase
Hansen talent-wise, but after seeing both Logan and LP in person 4 times this
year (3 times against my Braves), I'd say Logan would win a hypothetical
head-to-head. LP's defense is better, but Logan's offense could outlast them in
a track meet and they have more offensive playmakers than LP does.
I've heard all the comments on East and them keeping out their starters against
logan, but the only two I really followed were the quarterback and the running
back and they came in after two series. Who else did they hold out? I'm just
curious. Yes I'm a logan fan, but I just wanted to know who else, becuase I
don't follow east I didn't know. thanks
@cclute4 Yeah, because East's skill players are slow...
Dear Logan fans,Congratulations on your victory over the East JV team.
Keep thinking that youve already won the game next week. Im afraid youre all in
for a rude awakening. Games are won and lost on the line of scrimmage and Easts
line looks like a college team. You will witness this first hand come next
Friday. Enjoy the next 6 days of being undefeated because your season will end
with a loss.
Gotta love the Logan fans trying to take little shots... "DJ is great,
Chase is good" "Logan would play LP, but LP wouldn't" And I've
followed your little computer rankings all year. This is the very first week
Logan has been ranked higher. LP was ranked 8 points higher than anyone else
after they beat Bingham. It is solely based off schedule. It is no indication
that Logan could beat LP. So if/when LP beats Jordan and then Fremont/Syracuse,
LP's ranking will skyrocket. How about ESPN's rankings where LP is ranked 14 in
the west? We could debate rankings all day but they don't matter at all. And
Lindsayii, if you were really at the Nridge game, than you saw literally the
only game all year Chase has struggled at all if that's what you want to call
it. Also, I'm sorry to say it but DJ is not a D1 QB. D1 athlete? Absolutely. But
his skill set will not transfer to a D1 school.
Sportz Nutz, 2 East starters came in after it was 8-0. The big boys on the line
I love all the conversation on here great points. Look we all know that Logan is
a great team and you cant account for their tempo. They are fast the D has no
time to think. Dj is a great high school qb. If you all remember correctly his
bro did the same things in high school and put up crazy numbers too. But size is
the key here. He is too small to play D1 qb. Look at his bro granted he plays
for BYU but what is BYUs problem this yr? They dont have a qb. If he is so great
why doesnt he have more offers from bigger schools? Hansen is the same player
except he is 6'3 not 6'0. Thats why he translates to the college level better.
Look im not taking anything away from logan they are really good. If any team
can beat them its East. They are big upfont and we all know the only way to be
logan is to keep the ball out of Nelsons hands. Slow the game down long drives
and have to get a few stops. Easier said then done Logan wins but closer this
time for sure.
re: glendale, The East starters came in after it was 8-0! Logan wins by 2 or
@GlendaleLet's see how East does against the fastest and most
explosive team in the state.
Lindsayii,Is this based off of Logan vs Bountiful? Did you happen to catch
Lone Peak vs Bountiful? 37-0 Lone Peak. Chase Hansen is the best player in the
state of Utah without question.
"I hate to tell you east fans but logan is the real deal and they are deep
at every position not just at QB"Let's see how Logan does
against the East varsity team... The biggest, most physical team in the state
"I think they need to extend season one week and have Logan play Lone Peak
if they both win out. Would be a very interesting matchup! I watched Lone Peak
struggle last week and think Logan has the better quarterback after watching
Lone Peak play."LOL
Logan and Lone Peak did play 7 on 7 in a passing league scrimmage this past
summer and Logan stayed with them. Hansen is a good QB and DJ is a great QB,
both are D1 caliber athletes and both might play defense. As far as a 5A vs. 4A
battle after the 18th LP would never sign up for that but Logan's Coach Favero
would! LP has more to lose than Logan would in playing that game.Logan is ranked #1 in the state and #77 in the nation at maxpreps. LP is tied
for #2 in state with Fremont and #114 in nation based on Freeman rankings (like
a BCS computer ranking).
hsfootballfanYes, I watched Lone Peak play last Friday on their home
field and will be watching them play today too. I will also be watching Logan
play in the state championship game this coming week.
Come on Logan, crush East!
Totally need an "and 1" this year LP & Logan,...Would be fun to
watch only real comparible we have is Lp beat highland like 55 to 41, and Logan
beat highland 28 to 13. Gotta think it could go either way.. As for
Logan/East. It just feels like destiny just like the year his brother won it
all. Can't fight the waves, it'll keep comin. East will hang in there thru
halftime but Logan will extent to a 17 to 24 point win. Logan has to be
the funnest team to watch in the state. Regardless who would win. Most
emotion, fastest, most big play's, Int's, touchdowns, and broken tackles, smart
and gutsy coaching. Just relentless been a pleasure to watch
LindsyiiHave you even seen Hansen play? If so when? Because when it
comes down to it, it's no comparison. Hansen is the best player in the state bar
Logan is good, east isn't very good. Game over
I hate to tell you east fans but logan is the real deal and they are deep at
every position not just at QB
DJ makes Logan fantastic. But without him, I they still have 5 really good
receivers who run good routes, no drops, make the first tackler miss. They also
have a great running back. Remember, a really good qb left Logan when DJ got the
starting job.Also, they still have, arguably, 4a's best defense. If #22
doesn't bite hard and get burned on a trick play and pump fake, Bountiful
doesn't score in the 2nd half against LHS starters. (If...if...but he did and
props to Bountiful for scouting it and going after him).Without DJ, Logan
is vulnerable but still a contender, with DJ they are a video game.East gets a chance to explain themselves next week. Until then, nothing any of
us say matters.
lindsayii Whoa now, let's not get to out of control here. Bountiful
is not NR. Hansen would have dismantled Bountiful as well. DJ is a great QB but
let's keep things real.
I think they need to extend season one week and have Logan play Lone Peak if
they both win out. Would be a very interesting matchup! I watched Lone Peak
struggle last week and think Logan has the better quarterback after watching
Lone Peak play.
Since you guys want it so bad. Thank you kipp. If it wasn't for D.J. Logan
would be in big trouble. Now it's Easts turn to get some revenge. Sorry
Bountiful didn't get it. If East wins I hope you fans give them credit. If
logan wins I'll give Logan credit. PBR and BYUtough I hope I made your day. And
it's just Stang08 BYU tough. It looks like your just as confused as the people
on the Herald Journal.
I really get tired of the running up the score argument every week. If Logan had
stopped playing, it would have been offensive to Bountiful. They were still
playing and competing and scoring, and it would have been quite arrogant and
foolish to have stopped playing earlier. A coach also needs to keep his team on
the field to make sure the conditioning is there for the next team and game. I
think there is no question about that at this point. Great conditioning! Then
when coach does put in the subs and the other coach doesn't, and our sophomores
start getting beat up a little, the coach says, okay, if we are still playing
our starters.....I guess we will still play our starters. You cannot stop the
production of this offense. I bet the Bountiful coaches and players do not feel
like Logan ran up the score today. I bet they just felt honored to play with and
stay with them for much of the game.
KippSad thing for East is.... they probably will bring it.
Oh Kipp, The Grizz will bring it and everyone will be complaining about them
running up the score again. The SEC of Utah sure gives up a lot of points!
@SincerelyDavisEast fans keep trying this lame excuse. The Starting
QB for East was out the first two or three series, the coach then inserted the
starter realizing he was in a free fall. It simply does not matter,
what will the story line be next week ?Um we wanted to wait for next
year when we are all rested and we have a new team yeah that's the ticket.
Too many people are fast to write off East. Remember Logan played East JV team
while Varsity was resting..
Bring it on Logan.
Can't deny that Nelson is an outstanding quarterback, but without him, Logan
would be in trouble. As much as I don't want to admit it, they should have an
easy time against East. DJ stings teams on the run and then stings them on the
pass. How do you stop him? Your only chance is if he isn't playing.
Why is that with 5 minutes left in the game and a 30 point lead Logan leaves DJ
in the game and throwing? Padding the Stats or running up the score this sucks
It was a Region 5 #1 vs. a Region 6 #2. Also, that would be DJ, not RJ, but you
are right about his ability.
Spoke too soon and jinxed them. Bring on East. Let's all spend the day in Salt
Lake next Friday and hope for a glorious football day and weather day. Could it
have been any better than today? Next week will be better.
Jacob's Dad, you spoke too soon in hoping for Timp View. It looks like East is
in control going down the stretch.
it was not a 1 vs 2,Logan is ranked #1, if anyone was ranked #2 it
was olympus or Timpview or East, and who ever wins between Timpview and East now
will get to learn just how stinkin good RJ Nelson is. He will not
lose, and will beat either East again by 30, or Timpview by 40! Good
luck everyone! RJ IS GOOD!
DJ and the rest of the offense were a factory of production today, and if all
our factories in America were that productive, we would not be in a bad economy
right now! Wow describes it well! I also like how Tom Kirkland described it when
he said, "DJ Nelson went off"! I hope that performance can quiet those
who say DJ is not ready to be a quarterback at the next level. He is ready to be
a quarterback at the next level. That should send a message that usu didn't
commit him to come on to be a safety. Who do we get next week? Who do we want? I
know the default answer is always whoever wins, but it would sure be nice to get
another shot at Timp View.
Mustang 08, where are you?
KGThat's all I can come up with too.WOW!
I know, right? That was a 1 vs 2 and a blowout. Bountiful gave a valiant effort
but it just didn't seem to make a dent as Logan's advantage just snowballed. If
you're on the opposing sideline it's just a helpless, helpless feeling.
