    Okay, let's back up. I didn't say the QB got them anywhere, but that he helped. I never saw him anywhere but at the finals but I sat amongst his fans as our DH boys would also be on the west side of the stadium to follow the 5A game. The Fremont fans I sat near were very classy. Their QB was struggling but they weren't throwing him under the bus, they simply said he has had better games and that this wasn't a true reflection of his ability. Syracuse demonstrated that they had one of the toughest defenses to do anything against in the playoffs. And, no one compared him with Hansen, except you.
    Finally, if Preator is #6, yes, he is a player. Actually, he's not a bad QB. He had a decent release and threw with some zip on the ball. Could be a consideration for next year?

    I saw Fremont live against Bingham, and just cuz I am not a "player" type doesn't mean I can't judge a good player or not. and even if, 37 passing yds against Syracuse. 0 tds and 1 int. You don't need to be a player to know that isn't a good stat line. And when you watched them against Hansen it was pretty evident who has the QB skills. It was Vigil that got Fremont to the finals, not their passing prowess. Preator is a great runner I'll agree with that, he's not a QB. Fremont should move him to RB next year to replace Vigil.

    @Football PRO

    Have you ever even met Chase Hansen, do you even know him? Okay, I didn't think so. Your points are dumb. Your play on words = #epicfail

    Nov. 21, 2011 11:19 a.m.

    I can give you 7 reasons why Chase Hansen picked the UTES over the Kitten's, I will treat these 7 reasons like 7 Turn overs being #1, #2 I can give you 54 more reasons after the 7 if you like? 54-10. #3 PAC 12, #4 Automatic Bowl Eligible or shall I say National Championship Eligible every year not playing for the Fiesta or Sugar which they have BOTH already. #5 being coached by one of the top 10 BEST current college coaches Coach Whittingham. #6 No 2 QB system, who do I start coach Whitt doesn't play that game. If Chase is the man he will earn and get the job. #7 No Honor code to violate. Just kidding I think the honor code is an awesome thing to have in Junior High. But 75% of BYU players violate all the time but who am I to judge. It's there and at the U it's not. But Chase is a great kid and would have his honor code for his own to up hold. It's sad if you really need a piece of paper to enforce your belief just saying. I'm a cougar fan also. GO UTES

    Attended all three games.

    Hansen is a man. Agree that he is the major factor for LP.

    Vigil is too. Actually, Vigil kept things close until hobbled and eventually sidelined.

    Too many negative comments from many of you non-player types, i.e. Fremont QB was not very good. He simply may not have had his best day. It happens. Cut people some slack. He was apparently good enough to help them get to the finals. Also, I'd keep an eye on Fremont's #6. All Star quality kid.

    As said all week before this game, the Big Dogs would be the game changers. I not only want to give Chase Hansen a ton of credit but the O-line from LP stepped up big to stop the Fantastic 4! Congrats Lone Peak

    Congratulations on winning state Lone Peak!

    After Hansen threw that amazing corner route to Hannemun, I had a feeling it was going to be a long day. It was!

    Hansen deserves alot of credit for making plays, but I feel that the whole team stepped up and contributed in a big way. Shumways pick on that option pitch was awesome, he is defintely an amazing athlete.

    Fremont congratulations on a great year! already counting the the weeks until next season.

    Lone Peak was the superior team by far. Hansen is outstanding. He had his way with a defense that was talked about quite a bit leading up to this game. He actually reminds me of the Fremont QB (Hannum) who took the Silverwolves to the title game in 1995-1996. Hannum, like Hansen, was an exceptional passer and would rather run you over than run around you. The only team to challenge and confuse Hansen in the playoffs this year was Northridge. The NR approach is probably the only approach that would work to contain him. I wonder what their secret was because nobody else seems to know. Even when you do contain him, he still finds a way to win. When you dont, he beats you by three scores. He is a classy kid who may have a legitimate chance to play QB at the U.

    Chase is an amazing young man, and he deserves a lot of credit in Lone Peak's wins! Without him, who knows what would have happened. But I want people to think about Lone Peak's defense yesterday... think about Brodi Barry and the difference he made. Hansen gives credit to his O-line and his defense, and he should, because without them, he would do nothing. He knows it. By the way, I know Chase very well, and he is a neat young man and he willingly gives credit to those on his team. He KNOWS this is a team sport and is very well aware that he could not have done this without his receivers.

    Thank you SUPERTONGANMAN for making a logical post. The LP/Jordan game came down to whichever offense had the ball at the end with enough time to score. Both teams marched up and down the field until time ran out. As far as 3A,4A and 5A comparisons, the lower classifications win frequently. Many 3A teams beat 4A and 5A teams this year just like they do quite often. Hurricane beat Skyline and West Jordan this year and Delta beat T-Ville, to name a few. With the population expanding and more and more schools being built to replace older schools, the talent gap is shrinking rapidly.

    Ya know, sometimes you are just wrong. Chase Hansen is a great high school football player and showed that yesterday. Congrats to him on almost single handedly winning the state championship. You made a believer out of me. We had no answers for him, and he couldn't be stopped. I'm excited to watch him with the Utes.

    Congrats to Fremont on another great season, you made your school, community, and fans proud.

    Sad that Deseret News is stifling posts in an arbitrary and capricious manner. It is my sincere hope that posts are allowed that fully comply with DN's written standards vice being left un-posted and un-replied!

    Nov. 19, 2011 1:52 p.m.

    Congratulations to Lone Peak. You guys are without question the best football team in the state, but don't say that no one is even close. We all saw your game against Jordan last week. Though you can compare Logan and Lone Peak, I think we all know that Lone Peak is the better team, but it is not always that way @Serenity remember when Logan beat Skyline in the regular season and then Logan went on to win the 3A State Title and Skyline won 5A. Honestly the lines between 3A,4A,and 5A are starting to get a lot more blurry than seasons in the past. Anyways Congrats again to Lone Peak. That Chase Hansen is one special player.

    Congratulations to LP. No question Chase Hansen is a great leader and the best on that team. But football is a team sport and it takes everyone giving all they've got to win. That whole team was a well-oiled machine. One example is when Chase starts running everyone down field looks for someone to block. I love watching that type of football.

  • razorback South Jordan, UT
    Nov. 19, 2011 12:32 p.m.

    I have been wondering the same thing as Jarka-rus. Where is he? (you know who)

    Wait, this just in. Chopper 5 has just flown over RES and spotted a lonely blue-clad fan still sitting at the 50-yard line yelling loudly . . . at somebody, anybody. Is that you man? Go home. It's over. Nothing will change. That must have been like deja-vous all over again.

    I just watched that game again. That is one serious can of whoop-stuff that LP opened up yesterday. Yeah, we would know. Mr Hansen brought a similar can to Bingham. But we got over it, and you will too. LP was simply the better team. Much better. The sting goes away - eventually.

    But first, get out of the cold. Have a hot bowl of soup to warm up. Crow is optional, though in this case it should be mandatory.

    Us fans from all the schools that were contenders will go sit in the corner, lick our wounds and come back next season for more. It was another great season, thanks again Silverwolves.

    One thing I KNOW that Fremont excelled at was the tailgate party. Well done and thanks so much to you folks that put it together.

Fremont, great season! You played well all year, but LP was too much for everyone this year. A lot of fun this year, congrats to all the young men who have given us a lot of fun competative entertainment this year!! Thanks all.

    Are you the hardly heard from "caveknights" of old and still crying over Chase and his appropriate transfer to Lone Peak from AF?
    Get over it already, it has been over 2 years ago.
    Chase is a great player and even greater young man.
    Get a life and quit your non-stop complaining about Chase and his successful transfer from AF.
    He came to a better program with far better Coaching and an administration that supports its athletics. AF spends more on their Band than any of their sports programs and it shows. Now go and support the AF Band and be proud of it.
    Role on Lone Peak.

    LOL thanks I'm beginning to like you, I watched the Bingham/Fremont game and think the same thing. But It never fails that I always see Vigil scampering 80 yds to the house.

  • jarka-rus Layton, Utah
    Nov. 19, 2011 10:30 a.m.


    And obviously Vigil is a one man team for Fremont. Once they had to pass it was very clear that their Qb's are not very good. Most high school teams have a few great players they ride. look at Logan, Nelson is the team. Bingham had to rely too much on RB Palepoi. Not sure what your point is. Almost any team in the playoffs, you could point to one or two players that got them there. We all heard from Fremont fans how "Offense sells tickets but Defense wins championships". LP blew that saying and theory to bits.

    Without him, LP does not even make it to Rice-Eccles.
    The supporting cast has helped him, but without him, they clearly have no chance!
    Too many times has Chase completely taken over the game and single handedly won it.
    Yes LP you are state champions, thanks to the UHSAA board of appeals and a caveman.

    What the 5-A title game did was to showcase Chase Hansen and his remarkable skills. Every time I watched him on KJZZ this year, he was a man among boys. We're all looking forward to seeing you for a lot of Saturdays to come in the PAC 12.

    Go Chase, and Go Utes!!

    Okay, to sit here and say that jordan would have beat LP if not for some questionable calls is completely bogus. First off, if not for one completely bogus call on lp on 4th and 20 when jordan was ready to punt, there would not have been a final drive. 3 knees and the game is over. Second off, the questionable call on jordan was on first down with lp at the 20. You honestly think you were going to stop them from scoring without that call? Get real, no chance. LP is the state champions. Undefeated. Now it is time for chase and talon to repeat in basketball :)

    And how is it that you know for a fact that Jordan would have won the game, have some kind of crystal ball that we don't? LP is the best team in the state, with the best player. Who had the better day yesterday? Nelson or Hansen. That's an easy one.....

    Where is Papi? not surprising this poster wouldn't back up all the smack talk. but Fremontsilverwolf. I have a lot of respect for you manning up and getting on here and giving credit to LP for their dominating win, now you know how we Bingham fans felt as we watched in awe as Hansen did what he does. We won't see another QB as talented for a long time if ever. I wish him and Vigil good luck in their college careers.

    Great game Lone Peak! We are very proud of you. It is not easy to go undefeated and you did it! After our last two games I was a bit surprised that Fremont was such an easy opponent. We nearly lost to Jordan and Northridge, so I didnt expect a cupcake opponent in the final, but that is what we got. The game was not even as close as the lopsided score would suggest. Fremont may be the fourth or fifth best team in the state, but they certainly are not the second best. I thought it was interesting how Fremonts coach blamed the loss on poor execution (implying that he had an excellent game planif only the kids could execute it). Classy comments, coach. Way to stand behind your players. Chase probably could come up with 475 reasons why the plan to contain him was not all that good. If it were not for some outstanding plays from some of your superstars, you would have lost 55-0.

    Hansen is the real deal. He obviously did what needed to be done all season. Without a doubt Jordan played LP as well as anyone this year and who knows what would have happened without a critical injury to a young man who will be the real deal too. Perhaps the championship game was last weekend. Looks like it on paper. If Alta wouldn't have had three critical players hurt in the first round it's likely Fremont wouldn't have been at Rice Eccles today. Bottom line is Lone Peak is the champion, they will have the trophy and they played well enough to deserve and earn it. They have a year to enjoy it.

    Congrats athletes, Touchdown Tony, staff and students! And thanks so much to the LP community! What great support!

    When LP opened 15 seasons ago, there was not the unified community support that was so evident in the stands at Friday's game. Lone Peak's patrons live in Alpine, Highland, Cedar Hills, parts of Pleasant Grove, parts of Lehi, and even parts of Draper (Suncrest). Each city had their own identity and were very competitive with each other.

    There were no old men talking about their glory days on the LP football team, wearing crusty old ball caps and 20 year old letter jackets. There was just a motivated football coaching staff, determined boys, and supportive parents. Little kids didn't run around in little league Knights shirts because there were no programs yet.

    Previous coaches, led by Monte Morgan and Tom Longenecker, set a high standard, the first years of players were talented and hard-working and the program was successful. But community unity has been a long time coming.

    It took 15 years, but finally the fans, students and team came together. Thanks to ALL for becoming the LP community I've been waiting for!

    Serenity Now, your #5 "point" is laughable. Not because that team wasn't amazing because they were, but because you tried to pass that statement off like it was some sort of hard fact. It isn't. That is 100% your opinion, and nothing else.

    The division system has never, and will never be a measurement of skill. That is a common, and frankly ignorant misinterpretation of the system. People see the "5" and think "Well... 5 is greater then 4 so that must be it!". The only cold hard "fact" is that there are no facts. Now if we ever had the "Utah Bowl" where the division champions played each other to find out who was best then you might have something to go on.

    Truth is most years the smaller divisions field teams that are completely capable of running with the "big boys". 3A teams often beat 4A. 4A teams often beat 5A. Juan Diego last year beat Springville, who beat a undefeated Timpview, who slaughtered Alta. JD would of likely dismantled a bunch of 5A schools had they of been given the chance.

    Bottom line is this. LP is amazing. Logan is amazing. Both could beat the other.

  • Serenity Now Highland, UT

    For all you Logan fans taking issue with LP's claim to be the state's best, consider:

    1-Lone Peak outscored its opponents by the largest margin of any team this year (see earlier DN article);
    2-Lone Peak crushed Bingham on its home field, ending a 3-year long winning streak, a Miner team that had blanked Cottonwood 37-0 earlier (Logan sneaked by Cottonwood);
    3-Lone Peak and Logan had 3 common opponents: Mt. Crest, Highland, and Bountiful. Both champions crushed Mt. Crest, beat Highland by 2 touchdowns or so, but Logan played Bountiful twice, giving up at least 30 points each game. LP's game against Bountiful? 37-0.
    4-Logan's 4A victory came in the final seconds with a 40-yard touchdown over an East High team better known as Troy Bolton's alma mater. Come on--East High?
    5-The only time a 4A champion was the best in the state was during the Timpview glory years and specifically 2006 when Covey, Unga, Reynolds and Ashworth played together for them--a team that beat LP 42-0 in the championship.

    Congrats to all the teams! It was a great play offs and championships this year. Some outstanding players shone and it was great to see Hurricane finally get the big win. Chase hansen was a pleasure to watch. It really doesnt matter who is the very best of all, but I like to just play around with this for giggles. Here's what I come up with: if Hurricane plays Desert Hills 10 times, they win 8 of those. If logan plays East 10 times, they win 6. If Lone peak plays Fremont 10 times, they win 9. If Hurricane plays Logan 10 times, they win 1. If Logan plays Lone Peak 10 times they win 3. But all the state title winners are indeed #1.

  • hsfootballfan SLC, UT
    Nov. 18, 2011 10:56 p.m.

    Not apparently the best in 5A, they are the best in 5A. And if not for very questionable calls against Lone Peak on Jordans final drive, the calls you are referring to don't matter. There are questionable calls in high school athletics. Lone Peak overcame and made the plays necessary to win the game. Also, Jordans backup played as good if not better than the freshman. I feel bad for the backup I thought he should have played all year. As far as classifications go, there is a reason they are put in place. Most of the time, key word most, the top 5A teams are clearly better than the other teams in the state. As far as Logan goes, anything anyone says is completely speculative. Other than Logan fans and Lone Peak haters, most people believe Lone Peak is the better team with the best player in the state. Like I said, speculative, but non biased observers that know what they are talking about, believe Lone Peak would win and I personally don't think it would be close.

    LP is head and shoulders above the other teams. A couple teams did play them very good in the playoffs but they didn't win. As far as 2 other teams being undefeated and close. Having watched all 3 games state championship games, you can spare me the line of all undefeated teams are close. Hurricane's state championship is well deserved but being a small school, they would get worked by LP. As for Logan, played well enough to win but you also wouldn't score enough points to hang with LP. For those who think the Logan QB is as good as LP's, ( he even made the comment in the other SLC paper that Chase is having as good a season as me.) but look no further than the state championship game states for the Logan QB. Rushing 33 yds on 20 attempts and 135 yds passing on 8/23, yikes. Check out LP's QB stats against a better team. Case closed. Fremont is a good team but they were fortunate to not have a 50 spot dropped on them tonight.

  • kspncr West Jordan, Utah
    Nov. 18, 2011 10:14 p.m.

    No questions asked hsfootballfan? I have a question-how do you know they are the best in the state? They are apparently the best in 5A based on winning the championship but how do you know they are better than Logan or Hurricane? Did they play either of them? 5A tends to have the attitude that they are the best in the state regardless of what any other classification does. I believe that Logan would give LP a run for the best team in the state and I couldn't care leass about Logan.

    And if Jordan doesn't lose the starting QB and doesn't get some very questionable penalties on LPs final drive, yes they do beat Lone Peak.

    Good job LP what a season! You deserve all the recognition you've received and then some! Hansen and crew were too much for anyone to handle. So much more than a one man team the talent and speed of the whole team was incredible to watch! Hats off to Fremont on a tremendous season! Your community should be proud!

    Lone Peak won dominantly in the championship game but to say that nobody is close is absurd. It wasn't like Lone Peak steam rolled through the playoffs. They barely beat Northridge and should've lost to Jordan. Fremont is a good team but they clearly don't have the offense to match the other top teams in 5A. Congrats to Lone Peak for winning but they are not head and shoulders above everyone else, especially when there are 2 other teams that finished undefeated today.

    My hats off to Chase Hansen and the rest of the Lone Peak team. You whooped us and deserve to be called Champions. I really thought we could contain him, hang close and win it down the stretch but it just wasn't meant to be.

    Thanks for the memories Silver Wolves, it's been a great run and you have no reason to hang your heads.
    For you seniors, good luck with your future ventures and remember you'll always be in our hearts. And the rest of you we'll see next season.

    Congrats LP. You guys absolutely dominated the Silverwolves. You'd think with what all the Fremont fans were saying before the game it would have been closer. It will be interesting to see if all those fans give credit where credit is due to a clearly superior team.

    Great job Lone Peak. That was a bigger blow out then last years championship game.

    There was no real competition.

    Almost embarrassing how easy that win was.

    Lone Peak! way to go. No one in the state is even clos. The championship game was a blow out. Lone Peak Dominated! It was like the Varsity vs little league!

    I was totally bored after the 2nd quarter.

    It's almost like Lone Peak is in it's own class way above anyone.
