Good job, Miners! Way to represent Utah against a very talented opponent! I hope the Bingham coaches can get their offense squared away, like their defense seems to be. It sounds to me like Bowles beat out Stout in the QB roll this game, so maybe they can get rid of this inefficient 2 QB offense and finally nail down their leader so their offense can show some confidence and consistency. Both are skilled QB's, so I understand the dilema, but with Region play around the corner, it's time to make a decision.

Stout: Passing Stats - 0.524% on 11-21 pass attempts, for 142 yards. Rushing Stats - 10 carries for -10 yards and 1 TD. (Stats are from first two games played)

Bowles: Passing Stats - 0.600% on 6-10 pass attempts, for 58 yards. Rushing Stats - 26 carries for 110 yards (most rushing yards on team) and 2 TD's. (Stats are from first two games played)

From the sounds of it, Bowles performed better than Stout in yesterday's game, and since he can accurately throw and also run with the ball, he's the more practical choice.

Thoughts anyone?

Oh Great Writer of the Headlines, it was not 2OT, just OT.

That was a fun game to be at. Valor was the best team Bingham has played since trinity I think. The #5 kid is the best player I've seen plain high school in a long time. Great game.

I don't know who I would go with, just when I think one is pulling away from the other he starts to fall off and the other one steps up. It will be interesting to see what they do.

What a game!! Bingham's D once again is proven to be a dominating force, except for a few big plays by #5, they held them in check all game long. The O needs serious help. I would go with #11 at QB he has toughness and emotion when he is out there. You have got to go with one QB. It just doesn't allow the O to gel with 2 QB's. Valor is a quality team with classy players. #5 is a stud but blew it on that muffed punt, not sure if the coaching staff made that call or he was just trying to make a play. Loved to see Bingham pull out this win against an out of state powerhouse. Go MINERS. I don't see Bingham losing another game until the playoffs. But hopefully state can be achieved if the O gets it going.

I don't think so, that California team was huge and athletic, better than this Valor team by far IMO. And Bingham's O was a lot better last year.

@ markymark

Alta had a higher national ranking than Christian Valor. So did Jordan. That is not the best team that Bingham has faced since Trinity. Maybe you could have said that last year about Valor Christian, but they now have lost two straight games. The top Utah teams rank higher than the top teams from Colorado this year in high school football. Nevertheless, it was a great win for Bingham. Way to make Utah High School football shine.

I was at the Orange Lutheran game and the Valor game. And from my point of view Valor was a much better team. Bingham just didn't even show up against OL. Its hard for high school teams to travel. Bingham's O is basically the same minus the running back from last year, who was a stud. They lost an average qb from last year and have average ones this year. Good thing they have the best staff in the state to get it figured out. A lot of there problems have been injuries in my opinion. they have had 2 tight ends playing O-Line.

@ Prep fanatic

If there is anything I know its that ranking mean nothing towards how good a team really is. Especially in the national rankings, its impossible to get it right or even close. So the fact that other teams are ranked higher than Valor means nothing to me. Im just telling what i saw with my own eyes and I've been to almost every Bingham game for a long time. Out of state Included

Personally, I'd prefer that they not play these games against out-of-state teams.

I heard that the Bingham TE was poked in the eye, which is why he dropped 3 more passes. That is too bad. Maybe Bingham will just go to the ground game the rest of the year and switch #6 to DB full time. Maybe even move Cantwell over to defense as well.

Will you call Stanford and tell them he dropped 1 pass on saturday, they might pull his offer.

Ok....

Good win for Bingham... much needed.... and it showed how much better they can be with 2 division one recruits back on the line that both missed the ALTA game, Hicks and Lotellelie or how ever you spell his name the Nose Guard... so It was good to see them have some more push, I still think Jordan is the team to Beat this year.....

Which hurts me to say more then anything in the world... but I was very happy to see that they were losing to EAST, and that both there two athletic WRs they got in from CALI both got denied hardship by the UHSAA. The only reason both of them came to Sandy was for Kafentziz, and football. A uncle in Sandy ???

Really how dumb do you think UHSAA IS?

Back to Bingham,
Needs to find more offense, realize you have weapons to use, and your not doing much of it... but Im soooooo sick of this TE from Bingham... who is talked up by peck.. is skinny, and is SCARED to get hit. OVERRATED.. shows ya its all about potential. HOLT was the same way, talked up, ALL TALK.

markymark....I am sure the Stanford coaches have seen film. I get it....your son is a great player, I hope he finishes the season strong. I am sure with hard work he can get his catches over 50% by the end of the season.

Binghamalum:

The uhsaa approved one of the 3 kids that moved here for football from cali. So they at least got 1.

Bingham will get it figured out I wouldn't worry too much about them, they have the best staff out there.
