Good game but a frustrating one at that. With the Region 1 being sewn up I expected to see the offense stretch their legs and use this game as tune up for the play-offs........I was sorely disappointed yet again in the disjointed offensive play calling. WIth no disrespect to Layton at all, I expected a 72-0 game. Offensive play calling was again the achilleas heal for the Silver Wolves with the Red-Zone play calling being the most alarming. Defense was again the best in the state and appears to be what will carry Fremont thru the playoffs.

I remain hopeful that Fremont the team will not be let down by the man in the booth. The next 2 stops on the way to the championship game require an offense that so far has not materialized on the field nor in the game plan. Now is the time to place the big dawgs on the field for the entire game.

Congrats to the Silver Wolves for wrapping up the regular season. No major injuries and an ever improving play on the field. I for one am very tired of watching the opening offensive drive stall out. What should be 3rd and shorts turn into 3rd and longs and the play called almost always has me saying "huh". Let us recall the championship game last year, and it was a noticeable lack of offense especially in the second half. I agree with @viperguy Layton was surely a perfect opportunity to show some new teeth, some new moves, some new strategy some new players. Brighton, Alta, Bingham, Lone Peak are not teams that will be forgiving to stalled-out 1st quarter drives or the same old play calling. Here is your formula.....Hollingsworth@FB and Vigil@TB have Hollingsworth bang it up in the middle and allow the opposing defense to have to key on 2 very credible backs instead of keying on Nick each play, the result will huge yardage for both and increase opportunities for the receivers to get open. Best wishes to Layton and we will see you next year.

Heaven help this coaching staff when they dont do well. Fresh off a region title and the two posts are critiques and advice for better play calling? I guess you are both driven to perfection, but take some time to enjoy yourselves and give your coaches a break. Plus, things may not always be so fortuitous. The Vigil era is nearly over. See what your head coachs record is without Vigil in the backfield and this may help temper your expectations. Enjoy your good fortune this year and be nice to your head coach when the best running back in the school's history is no longer there.

Great game by the Wolves. I actually expected this game to be a little bit closer, considering Layton only lost 24-21 to Northridge, but the Lancers just didn't show up to play. This game was disappointing on the offensive end. Fremont's defense was perfect as usual since the closest Layton even got to scoring was the 47-yard missed field goal. I see Nick Vigil carrying the offense for Fremont and the defense stepping up during the playoffs. Goodbye Region 1, hello Bingham, Alta, and Lone Peak!

I think they did an ok job coaching wise as I sat by Mimnaugh and heard him doing the play calling all game. My one concern is with the extra point/2 pt conversion attempts. Layton was ready for their 2 pt attempts when they saw Preator in their instead of # 80 George. They had obviously seen it on film and were able to stop them both times. In close games in the playoffs, they can't afford to not make the PAT or 2 pt attempt. I think they should put Preator in and have him kick the PAT on their first touchdown in the playoffs so other teams don't automatically expect a 2 pt attempt when he is in there. Otherwise, great game by the defense and I expect them to carry the Wolves through the playoffs.

congrats to Fremont on their Region title and good luck to them in the playoffs. They will have the toughest road to the title in my opinion, they may have to open with Jordan since Region 3 will have a 3 way tie for second meaning a coin toss between Cottonwood, Jordan, and Brighton for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place.
If Fremont gets by their first round game they'll have Bingham in the quarterfinals and then Alta in the semi's. If Fremont survives those three games they'll get Lone Peak in the final so you'll surely earn your title if you get there.

Great job Fremont! You did everything asked to roll through the region. Your reward for winning the #1 spot in region is: Hands down the toughest road to the title! Good luck boys! Now we will see if the staff has some wrinkles in that play book. Vigil is a great back, but Vigil up the middle is not going to fly in a couple weeks. The teams your going to face is built to stop the run. Go getum boys!

Fremont Congrats. What a mountain you now have to climb. @cliff your comments are a bit odd when the year-long criticism of Fremont has been their lack of offensive production. The kids have worked their tales off and kumbaya is not the song to sing right now.

@papi_chulo I agree with your comments, additionally is it not a confidence killer (Fremont kicker) to have the coaches choose the 2pt route?

@mondaymorningqb spot on analysis. Vigil is being focused on too much, he needs a power runner (Hollingsworth) to take advantage of the middle which would allow so many more areas of play to open up.

@viperguy I am very concerned about the opening drives coming up empty. In the playoffs they better produce 14 points minimum in the 1st quarter and keep their defense off the field as much as possible.

I cannot believe region play is over, and only one really bad weather night. Silver Wolves have done something that does not get enough credit, they have improved (on the field) in every single area....the corners & safeties are playing much better, the linebackers have made the most dramatic increase and the vaunted defensive line is anchored by 2 remarkable athletes in #31 and #81. I am amazed at how many double teams...triple teams we have seen this season and the 2 defensive tackles have embarrassed them all. On offense much improved play from Smith the tight end, and both QB's have made tremendous strides. I have confidence that Coach Bosgieter will demand a plan that will take this team to the State Championship, as Fremont may not have this level of talent again for a long long time. I remember when many of these seniors played at Rocky Mountain Junior High and we all knew this was going to be something special. Lets grow some big claws Wolves and take it to the next level. We Love You guys and are very very proud. Thanks for the memories.

For a minute there I thought I was on the Weber High article. Come on you guys! Some of these comments are not rational at all.

Give the coaches some credit. They are with these kids at least 3 hours a day at practice. You see 3 hours on Friday night and you think you have all the answers. I know those coaches put in 35-40 hours a week outside of school studying the opponent and game-planning. The coaches work hard to make these kids the best student-athletes they can be and you have the audacity to criticize them because they only won by 40. A few weeks from now what play was called won't matter, it will be all the important lessons that were taught everyday in the classroom and at practice. You should be grateful someone will do it because it's obviously a thank-less job.

@ burger_fries_football
It does probably get to the kickers confidence a little bit, but Fremont needs to do what they need to do to win. The kicker has improved as the season has gone on, but can he handle the pressure when it comes down to him kicking the game winning or tying field goal? I hope it doesn't come down to that, but it's the playoffs now and I'm sure it will. Get better every day Fremont. I know that you can beat anybody in the state if you play up to your potential. Excited for playoffs in 2 weeks. Fremont definitely has the toughest road to the finals, but if you are going to be the best, you have to beat the best. Go Fremont!!

seeingclearly "not rational" I stand firmly behind my remarks. You show me a state championship team I will show you a relentless demand for constant improvement. Yes a few weeks from now what play was called will matter, it will matter in the minds of this team that has had the latent capacity to roll the kind of offensive numbers that will be required to beat Alta, Bingham, Lone Peak etc. Fremont has an outstanding defense, outstanding defensive coaching, and outstanding head coach that understands the importance of character. Fremont has outstanding offensive players.....what is lacking is strategy....what is lacking is fundamental understanding of what the strengths & weaknesses are on offense and making changes for the better. As burgernfries put it "kumbaya" is all that some of the nicey-nice crowd have to offer...accepting criticism is an anathema in your mind but it is the cornerstone of improvement.

These kids do not play to accept second place, they play to be champions. Inside 9 months 4 of these kids will be D1 student athletes, a level where "almost" is not enough for an offensive game plan. This isn't peewee.

@viperguy - As someone who has coached a state champion team I don't believe I need you to preach to me about what it takes to do so. I know that many of the coaches on the Fremont coaching staff have also coached a state championship team. You're right this isn't Pee-Wee. High school football coaches spend hundreds of hours studying their opponents, crafting strategies and training these athletes. Have you watched every Alta, Bingham or Lone Peak game that has been played this year? I guarentee that these coaches have or will and they will craft the strategy that they believe will give them the best chance to win. Again... you might think you have the best strategy to win but you probably can't back that up with the countless hours it takes to know your opponent.

You're right it isn't Pee Wee. All I'm saying is you need to give the coaches some credit because they deserve it.

Wolves congratulations on a job well done! Climbing a tough mountain only makes the view from the top that much more sweet.

Diddy I have watched every game you described in person or on film. I tend to agree with the general sentiment that Fremont has the States best defense but at this moment its offense (or offense production) is not in the Top 3.

OK I'll bite.....who did you coach & what year. Who on the Fremont Staff have a State Ring in their cabinet.

SeeingClearly
Salt Lake City, Utah

Kory Bosgeiter - (Head Coach, Weber High '99) and Rafe Maughan - (Offensive Line) both have Utah State Championship rings. Most of the Fremont staff have coached or played at the next level. Along with coaching high school football for a very long time Kory Bosgeiter spent some time at Snow College as a coach and he also played at WSU. The O-Coordinator played and was an assistant at WSU. As I'm sure you are aware the coaching staff also took their team to the State Finals last year.

These guys aren't little leaguers.

@Viperguy...I know for a fact that Bosgieter led Weber high to a state title back in I believe the 98-99 season. Funny, that Weber team was know for great fundementals, discipline, above average special teams, and a opportunistic defense that made big plays all year long.

Regarding the Layton game, although it was the only game that I missed all year I have to say I am very supprised and pleased with the outcome. To win by the score of 40 to 0 is impressive no matter who you play.

Every game presents different challenges and aside from 2 games Fremont players and COACHES have risen to the challenge.

Go Wolves!

@gridironfan2011 - That's a great observation. I would probably agree with that. Show me that has anything to do with strategy and game-planning. They are putting up a lot of points. It might not be Lone Peak numbers but they are pretty good numbers.
