We need to develop seniors and juniors. AF seems to always be playing for the future. A great program has Seniors and Juniors to lead the way. Why are we always building and not having experience lead the program! AF played a great game, but the toughness and compusure of a Ben Beddes should be with most of a starting five! Thanks to Rod Davis for giving the program so much experience for the future!


Have fun AT Jordan. Its rough over there.


American Fork's inexperience also showed against Jordan on Wednesday. Jordan kept their composure down to the last min. and came away with the win. EVERY GAME will be tough in this region. There is not one easy game on the schedule.


I wish that all regions could be this exciting and tough!! Brighton Coach Lyndon Johnson said it best after the L.P. win when he declared to all how good this region is, "Welcome to reigion 4"!! This region is legit, no shabby squads, or nights off like the other regions!! You gotta love it baby!!!


The last time I checked. Rod Davis wasn't the coach at American Fork.

I'm glad you appreciate all the hard work we put in over the summer. Until those kids reached the 9th grade they were probably playing more games than the Jazz. Against some of the best kids in the country. The kids are young but they are very experienced.


notice its the metro boys who is winning the brighton games. when the game is on the line its the metro boys and sam. there is a good chance that brighton is going to win state this year and for sure next year. good job corbin, loi, austin, derek.

to many seniors

I agree with metro. It's the juniors who are carrying the team along with Sam. Johnson should probably get even more younger kids into the games.
Sam: Legit. maybe the best player on the team
Xan: Decent. Good backup for Austin
Moses: Banger and hard worker. Good backup for Loi
Jace: okay defender. Just don't touch the ball if you don't have to. Brandon miller should be getting his minutes.
Jordan: has had one good game. He might be the slowest player in the state.
Matt C: decent defender. can grab a few boards, but there are a couple of younger kids that could do the same.
Mike: good shooter but doesn't play, so it doesn't matter.
Matt A: Weak. He might be better hurt then when he's not.
Coach should let some more juniors and maybe some sophomores show what they can do.


what is metro? When Brighton has a bad shooting night theyll tank.


false, this group of senior boys has been winning all throughout there lives in super league and at the high school level. They have been playing with each other for so long, it is foolish to add a freshman into the mix who is not physically ready for the varsity level, the older miller brother is great, but his younger brother does not deserve to be on the floor, keep felix on the floor and he will give you his all on the defensive end and hang with many top players, put the younger miller in and your chances of a state championship will fade very fast come on johnson

Coach Hill

It is a "TEAM" effort and everyone on there team has a role. They don't look at it as the "METRO" boys or one particular individual. It's selfish people who put me before "WE"!!!!! There is no "I" in team. And each one of the "SENIORS" contributes in there own way, that's why Brighton has the potential to be special because of the Senior leadership they show everyday on and off the court. They should be commended for excepting there roles and putting the team first and not themselves. This is a lesson that will translate well when they become apart of mainstream society. Kudos to the Brighton seniors especially Matt Aiken who gives his all and would do anything to play this year. It take a person with his character and team spirit to understand that even though he's not able to play(Ruptured patella)that he contributes in other ways. Those are the types of young men who will be successful in whatever they decide to do. Go Bengals!!!! Coach Hill

Not blind

It is easy to tell who wrote the above comments.


what and who is metro can someone explain

re: Metro

Metro is a super league traveling team ran by Coach Hammer and his sons. These guys are freat and they have great connections to the college world. If you would like to play for him or get trained by him and his sons, it would be great for you because of their knowledge of the game of basketball. They are also the ones who put on the showcase called, Intermountain hoops. My son has had an opportunity to be involved with these great guys and he benefited from it greatly and so should you.

bret miller

metro players are the best andy will win state for Brighton. Brandon Miller should get more playing time


Last time I checked, basketball was a team sport. Why single out individuals?? What I find funny is that AF JV team is undefeated this year. And the handful of players that carry JV don't even get minutes for Varsity. That make sense??


AF has plenty of experience. Most of it just sits on the bench. If is funny that the AF JV team is undefeated this year and the core of players that keep winning games in JV don't get Varsity minutes.. Explain that..


LOL..... Are you serious! Varsity is a whole new level. Speed, Strength, Knowledge...

Rod Davis

I second that. The varsity game is a totally different game. Just like the collegiate game is totally different from high school and the pro game is a different level than the collegiate game. You can't compare the level of competition. How many division one players has the jv played against? The varsity has played against at least 3.
