Alta's entire offense has been strong all year, but beginning with the
second half of their game vs Don Bosco the passing game has been incredible. It
starts with the line, but Lucero has been finding the open receiver and making
good throws and the four receivers are making great plays. I don't
remember a high school team with four D1 receivers on the field at one time,
pretty impressive group.
Alta OFFENSE crushed Cottonwood Heights. Great to see Offensive Line give
Chipper the time he needed to connect. Baron Bruce(76)RT blasted denfensive line
members. (Hard to move a Junior weighing 282 and 6'4.) Rav on left tackle
had no comers. This line may destroy teams in the playoffs. Giving Alta Hawks
the edge for easy scoring. WR's are catching everything hitting their
hands. Agree w/Big Brother, Ammon's footwork and striaght arm smoothed
running lines to goal. A great spot to be in entering the playoff's.Alta Defensive line has improved 50% since beginning of season. Holding
Cottonwood 9 times before they ran for a 1st down. Thus, the 21-0 first Qtr.
Hawk's look tough to beat!
An Alta Highlight (one of many): 6'4" WR Ammon Barker catches a screen
pass behind the line of scrimmage. Makes one, two, three defenders miss with
some fancy footwork, then runs 67 yards to the end zone for his second
touchdown! Finishes with 172 yards on 5 receptions. I guess they should have had
a fourth defender in on that tackle...The Hawks have stepped up
their game on both sides of the ball. Up until half time tonight, the Hawks
points scored/points allowed over the last three games has been 146-6. Even
against these gimme opponents, that is impressive! On defense, they are hitting
harder and playing with passion, and their offense is clicking early and
effectively. Apparently Don Bosco's Humble Pie leaves an after taste!
Can't wait for the playoffs!
