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
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
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
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
@ burger_fries_footballIt 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.
@viper - Posted under my other screenname diddy.
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.
SeeingClearly or DiddyOK I'll bite.....who did you coach & what
year. Who on the Fremont Staff have a State Ring in their cabinet.
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.
