Thankyou Tigers for getting it done.This will be remembered for many generations to come. Congrats!!! It must be the greatest feeling in the world.

Congratulations to a classy Coach, Team and Community! 4th time was definitely a CHARM!

It seems that the Tigers don't "rebuild" but rather "reload"! With many Juniors coming back, they seem to again be in the drivers seat for yet another return trip to RES and a return date with destiny... For those who will disagree - refer to the past four years for evidence...

This Coach/Team/Community proved they are truly Champions by not giving up when they were put to the test the past three years...and kept coming back until they got what they came for - a 3A State Championship!

Congratulations to the Desert Hills Thunder Coach/Team/Community for not giving up all season long and proving that they are a force to be reckoned with in the future...

Though I will still look forward to next season and a possible H-Town/JD final match-up...yet another one for the ages...

BTW - this is the first time in UHSAA history that the 3A, 4A & 5A Champions in Football are "undefeated" - AMAZING!!


Great Job Tigers! I can't wait to see that State Champion trophy displayed at HHS. It has been a long time coming. I think this team really showed a lot of heart and character this year. MVP goes to Brian Scott. Great Year and amazing job in the Championship game playing through an injury. The D played great especially Edwards and Prince. Yardley and Thompson ran great and kept the sticks moving.
Too bad for both teams the game was played in a snow storm. Would have been ten times more exciting in So Utah.
I had fun chatting with all of you fellow board followers and look forward to starting up again next August.

Thank you to all of the Hurricane faithful who made the trip to SLC and supported our team! You are the best!

Congratulations to Hurricane--2011 State Campions!

Way to step up the big D and leave them with a goose-egg. Everybody knew it was going to snow and the pass game is hard to use in it. Congrats to all the players on both teams, what a fun time it was up there. It is nice to have undefeated teams in all the title games taking home the crown. Now lets enjoy this 60 degree weather down here. I love the how they kept saying that the southern teams are not use to the weather, tell me what other team played in the snow this year ha ha.

Very happy for coach, his staff & players and HHS. You will never forget a state champion team, ever. No feeling in sport like winning a state championship. Enjoy the moment fellas, well done.

See what happens when you don't get the chance to eliminate Morgan in the playoffs!?!? Good job Hurricane, you guys really deserved that win!!!


Congratulations to the Hurricane Tigers! They are really a class act. I've been watching you guys play for several years now and you deserve everything you get. Great team effort. Brian Scott is awesome. Taylor Parker has been a fantastic leader and outstanding safety. My son has been to several football/basketball camps with Taylor and says he is everything people say about him.. Outstanding!. Couldn't have happened to a better group


Congratulations to the Hurricane Tigers! what a great team victory. Brian scott is awesome. Taylor Parker is a fantastic leader qb/safety. my son has gone to football/basketball camps with taylor and says he is everything they say...a great kid. good job Hurricane


I have to say this @southpride "Defense Wins Championships"

Great year !!

Too bad dhhs seniors on offense didn't show up. Defense did their job. It is hard to stop hurricane again and again when you are on the field the entire 2nd half. Congrats to HHS. Snow storm was unbelievable and a memory maker for sure.

DH had some great chances in the first half but couldn't take advantage,the offense has been the weak spot for DH all year.Congrats to Hurricane for kicking the door down,I think they will be there for a few more years.


It's obvious your a parent of a junior. Probably the one the coach had to tell to shut up during the game. Classless. Good luck next year with your senior, you'll need it.
