PG has had some of the top talent in the past 6 football seasons, arguably 2009 had more than anyone.
Year after year the Vikings come up short and under deliver.
Players play the game but they perform on how they are lead.
There have been whispers fora long time but the time has come to be vocal.
Pleasant Grove needs an coach overhaul.
The question is how deep?
It starts with the head coach, but will that be enough?
PG clearly has a division in the coaching ranks.

Last night showed how far the program has fallen. No one has confidence right now. Coach Bayles runs the JV offense and we succeed nearly every week. Our Varsity couldn't move the ball against the same JV Riverton team that played the 2nd half last night. Our JV team rolled over the same kids on Thursday. Our Varsity players are clearly more talented than our JV kids. No question. The problem is,there are massive divisions within the Varsity team that the coaches need to addressed. Our JV kids are fired up, confident, and ready to play. The varsity doesn't know who is going to play QB until game time and that shows no leadership. This team needs stability and the boys are already whipped before kickoff. The one constant is that every kid loves to play for Coach Boban. He is a motivator and right now that is what we need. A TV game against Lone Peak awaits on Thursday. If we play this way again we will lose by 100 pts.

Unreal,

HA, Riverton gets beat 45-13 by Bingham, then they Demolish PG at there place, and looked amazing, is PG that bad? Coaches do affect a lot, but common PG never has been good in football, and your best year, you got blasted by the big boys, so its a tough day in old news PG, because of Lone Peak, and American Fork

The PG coaching staff has survived on talented players who were well coached by their dads through their freshman years. It is interesting that the same players that win and often go undefeated in the younger years are the same ones losing now, oh except for the 10+ players who left the program or quit after the 2009 season. Class of 2009=undefeated as freshman, 2010=undefeated as freshman, 2011 and 2012 top 4. That's the first time I've heard Boban is a players coach.
