Cubs4life, this you must know,3A competes blow-by-blowYour 5A stars
could not competewith REGION 9 and all our peeps.
@Cubs4life,I think your 5A Granger lancer, care about 3A teams now,dont
you think? having their first lost on their new field at the hands of a 3A
school, should speak for the talent in 3A, Grangers RB only TD came because JD
fumbled on Grangers 6 yd line and then he recovered his own fumble on the 2 yd
line,other then that, JD's Defense keep the #1 RB in the state not only 5A
out of the endzone. In my opinion, you should take a good look at the talent on
alot of these 3A teams,before saying that no one cares abot 3A,because I for
one, and I know theres hundreds more, that do care about 3A..JD FAN
and 3A FAN TO THE FULLEST..!!
@ cubs4lifeyou know when alabama, lsu, florida, or auburn win
national championships, and fans of vanderbilt, or mississippi state start
gloating about it just because they belong to the same conference??? thats you.
lol, i can imagine you chanting "5A! 5A!" when syracuse beat down
desert hills. sounds like whether your team wins state or not, the fact that
they are 4/5A class is enough consolation for you. also, no matter how big and
bad you think northen 4/5A teams are (no disrespect to them) theres always
someone bigger and badder. *cough* trinity from texas *cough*
My heart goes out to Alta fans having a new school down the road it going to and
adjustment for sure You could have my school there lucky to get first downs in
the past 10 yrs 4 wins
For those still checking comments, East had two games cut short in 2000. The
Leopards' season opener at Riverton on Aug. 18 was called with 4:15 left in
the fourth because of lightning. East won 43-28. Then two weeks later, East
hosted Clearfield, and a severe windstorm knocked out power at halftime.
Clearfield won 23-3.Another game just a few blocks away, Granite at
Judge, was also interrupted by the outage. But those teams came back and
finished the game the next Tuesday, Sept. 5.
cubs4life. If you are so caught up in Overall STATE Rankings, maybe you missed
Hurricane in the #8 spot in the STATE. Yes, they did beat two sub-par 5A teams
this year in Skyline and West Jordan but how do you know they couldn't
compete at a higher level and put up a good fight against the bigger, faster,
stronger teams of 4 and 5A. Maybe you should scroll down the page and read
about teams below the #3 spot in the state because they are the ones that can
@ Mr. Felt's Facts, you forgot to mention that Granger started 4-0
last year,and their first lost was to JD 21-0. it seems like everyone is
underestimating the little 3A schools.JD,Hurricnae,and Dixie,just to name a few,
In my opinion could compete with alot of 5A or 4A schools.There is a BIG game
down south tonight,and hardly any mention of it...Dixie at Hurricane its going
to be a slobberknocker..I know that if JD wants to pull an upset over favorite
Granger,they are going to have to bring all they got,it wont be easy,because
Granger doesnt want a repeat of last year. its going to come down to the team
with the least mistakes,this is another game that could be game of the WEEK..!!
good luck to all the 3A schools tonight,you dont get enough credit,but you have
fans that believe in you....LET GET IT BOYS..JD FAN and 3A FAN TO
You do a great service Mr. Felt, always love reading your stuff!
G Felt I love that you come on here and help clarify when the commentors take
you to task. You do a great job keep it up. Love reading the facts!!
Another interesting fact to add coming into the Hurricane vs Dixie game tonight
is Hurricane is undefeated (at home) for a total of 28 games--2008, 2009, 2010,
& 2011 seasons--would be 29 but last year's West Jordan vs Hurricane
game was played at Dixie State College last year, and holds a win streak of 17
straight games now.
I think another golden era for Skyline was from 1976 to 1979 where Skyline won
three state titles in four years, with the other year a trip to the semi-finals
and those teams produced tons of college players. Of course Skyline has to be
regarded as the best football school in Utah but I think Skyline won three state
titles in the late 1960's. I heard that these Eagle teams actually
produced several NFL products and many college players.
To Felt's Facts' loyal readers: On Hurricane vs. Dixie, I'm
guilty as charged. The game was highlighted in the rivalry section, but not as
a game between unbeatens. I apologize for the oversight as I do my best to
cover and include every team in the state. On other interrupted
games, Logan did defeat Ogden 48-0 on Sept. 23, 2005 in a game that ended in the
third because of lightning.I was aware of Enterprise and Lincoln,
but it wasn't included because the game was completed the next day. There
have been several of those types of games over the years. I wasn't aware
of the Enterprise vs. Kanab game, which ended in the third because of a power
outage. Enterprise won 28-7 on Sept. 16, 2011.Thanks for calling
those to my attention.The Tooele-Mountain Crest game was tied 14-14
as the second half was to begin when the tower used for filming collapsed. Both
filmers were airlifted to the hospital where they recovered. The game was
cancelled and the game and stats did not count.Thanks for reading.
In 2000, under the direction of Coach Georgelas, East found itself in a similar
situation, but not as favorable. They were trailing at half when lightning hit
an electrical substation, knocking out power several blocks surrounding East
High School. The game was called, Coach Johnson's Falcons chalked up the
victory, and a pocket of Salt Lake City received power a couple of hours
Carl Franke at Desert Hills is a first-time head coach that has only one loss to
Syracuse, but I forgot, no one that reads the D News cares about anything but
5A. The biggest game in the state this week involves a PAC 12 team
and a team ranked in the Top 25. I'm curious, what 5A schools did both the
starting QB and the #2 QB (for the team ranked in the top 25)attend? Oh wait,
they both attended 3A schools, how could that be because no one below 5A knows
how to play football?Pretty sure "cubs4life" never played
@ IrrelevantI like your comment. Gotta love the big timers that
think they're so important.
@cubs4lifeWhat if i told you not everyone cares about the "big
bad" 5A schools. calm down man, he was just making a point that basically
the title for best team in southern utah will be played tomorrow. that's
all. lets take a deep breath we're going to get through this.
Speaking of Alta splitting...with the new region realignment, will that put Alta
and the new Corner Canyon school in 4A?
Ha because its in Southern Utah! And either Team would compete in
the Valley!!!!!!!!!!Yes Hurricane beat Skyline, who is a fading, NOW
4A school, who may not even make there own playoffs!!!Oh and One
more thing Tiger25......Alta #2 in state, Jordan #3 in State!
STATE!5A schools! Biggest and the Best! Why talk about
some 3A title game in St. George! Im sure allllll of St. George will be at that
amazing game with Dixie and the TIGERS.So dont worry about it! People all in 3A know who Hurricane and Dixie are and how good they are! But no one in 4A or 5A cares! Alta Jordan two of the most hated
schools in the valley goin at it! Plus Alta loses about 1000 kids
this year to the new Draper High School! there athletic program is going to be
SHOT in half! Which makes this game even more important for Alta! Jordan will win both games when Kafentzis is a junior and Senior because of
the split of students wanting to attend Draper. Good Luck Alta!
Humble the Diggers please!
Yeah, how can the Hurricane-Dixie game be forgotten!!! Huge game in southern
Utah this Friday! Go tigers!
Guess you forgot about southern Utah once again. Dixie and Hurricane are both
undefeated. It's kind of an important game in Region 9.
Interesting that either not enough research was done, or the small school get
left again. And judging from all the comments, I would think it is the research
side. Enterprise High School had 2 games last year effected by
weather. One was against Lincoln County, NV and was delayed from lightning.
The game made it through one quarter and then was cancelled and played the next
day. (So not really a time shortened game). The second was with Kanab.
Lightning again cut this game off in the 3rd quarter and the coaches decided to
call the game final.
Jordan: 31, Alta: 21. BOOK IT!! Jordan is finally gonna beat Alta. 6 years of
losing is gonna end tomorrow night Alta. I guarantee it! Book it! Mark it down!
Do whatever you want but this is the year Jordan beats Alta! Kick the hawks to
the curb Diggers cause Jordan is the favorite to win the championship!!!
12eadyornot - ironically despite the fact that Jordan has the same people (AD,
principal, coach, etc.) in the program, they did not have a problem counting the
game as a final of 27-26 in 2007 in their favor. The game was called and never
finished and Jordan was given a win. It's funny how that tune has changed
in 2012 when Jordan is down by 1 point.
I thought there was a suspended game between Mountain Crest and Tooele. I
can't remember exactly when, but it had something to do with lightning. In
the last 8-10 years or so.
2002 Tooele VS Mountain Crest was also a canceled game tied at the half due to
wind blowing over a scissor lift and badly injuring two film assistants. This
was a turning point for both teams, Mountain Crest was highly ranked going in
with the best QB in the state Zimmerman while Tooele was 0-2. From that game on
Tooele went undefeated and won state while Mountain Crest couldn’t ever
recover and never lived up to expectations.
Aug. 17, 2007 Just curious! was this game between jordan 27 and nothridge 26
ever made up?
Mr. Felt, Wasn't there a cancelled game due to bad weather between Logan
and Ogden in 2005. The score was heavily in Logan's favor and I believe it
was cancelled early in the third quarter. I could be wrong but thought I would
ask. The game was played in Ogden.
