Get better young man.
Syracuse was a great host, classy players and fans and it was a great
atmosphere. Alta's offense was outstanding, but it's nearly
impossible to win in the playoffs when you don't hang onto the ball. Four
turnovers were the difference.I think in all the years I've watched
Alta play this was the best group of receivers ever. Likely all four will play
D1 ball. The seniors, Handley at Utah, Barker at UCLA, and the two juniors Mack
Richards and Logan Harrison already have schools recruiting them heavily.
Lucero had an awesome season, 3500 yards and 35 td's. Those three juniors,
along with Trevor Hill will be a great base for next season.Good luck to
Brock Anderson, tough break but was a big reason Syracuse won last night.
Game was over in the first quarter and mostly due to Alta not being ready to
play in the State Quarter Finals. Seemed to take till the second quarter for
Alta to realize they were playing a football game. The first two fumbles
Syracuse did not even have to touch the ball carrier, Alta just put the ball on
the ground. Also two of the fumbles from their star receivers. I thought
Alta's tougher schedule was suppose to prepare them for this game? Did not
look like they were ready to me. Rest of the way it was a good game and both
teams were able to move the ball and score points, however, the game was decided
in the first six minutes.
Terrible injury for Anderson, I wish you a successful recovery.I
have to agree with Football Fan a bit, several people talked about Alta's
schedule this past week calling Syracuse overrated. I said if Alta came into
Syracuse thinking the same thing they would get smacked in the mouth, and in the
first half that is exactly what happened. Yes, I know Alta contributed to some
of their own demise with the early turnovers. Both teams have exceptional
athletes, and I wish them all luck in their futures. I don't know about
next week though. With Anderson out I am not sure 'Cuse can hang with
Bingham. But in defense of Syracuse, they do play exceptional team football and
that just may give them hope. Good Luck next week 'Cuse, yo udeserve to be
where you are at. And congrats to you Alta boys, you had an amazing season and
I am sure there is still much ahead for all the athletes.
Sad way to end a very good year for the Alta Hawks. Alta was the better team for
the final 3 quarters of play. Had Alta not handed, and yes, I mean handed,
Syracuse 17pts in the first 6 minutes of the game, the final score would've
been 24-14 for the Hawks! Once again, Alta was their own worst enemy. Once Alta
decided that they had to play in order to win, they had already dug themselves a
really big hole against a really good team. Hats off to Syracuse for
capitalizing on Alta's misuces and great field position for the first 6
minutes of the game. That was just what Syracuse needed in oredr to be able to
beat a really good Alta football team. Was a great ending to a hard fought game
though! Sad though to see Anderson go down, as i don't see Syracuse beating
Bingham without him. Hope he has a speedy recovery!
It's so sad to see this all-state quarterback get injured right before the
biggest game of the year. I really hope him a speedy recovery. He's an
incredible play-maker and the heart of the Syracuse offense.
great game Dang Bingham caught a Break there with there QB goin
down.Should still be a fun game next week.
I don't agree that Alta was the better team for the rest of the game. Yes
they did make a run but they really did not stop Syracuse. The last 9 minutes
of the game, Syracuse was trying to kill the clock and kept the ball on the
ground. When the game was tied and Syracuse needed to score, they walked down
the field and put the ball in the endzone. I saw nothing special
about Alta's defense. They were good and I would say on par with North
Ridge, not on Syracuse's level. They did get a pick which most teams
cannot claim against Cuse. Other than that they got some key stops but every
team gets a few of those every game. They did a decent job vs. Syracuse's
number 1 wide-out, but that was it. Every other receiver, tailback, fullback
and QB had productive nights.
Sorry, provided inaccurate information. First fumble the halfback did not get
the handoff clean and then got hit. Second one Syracuse's safety defiantly
caused the fumble. Could not see that my seat, however, watching the play now
and it was a take away.
Last nights game was awesome being a "Cuse" fan. I need to disagree with
Prep Fanatic. I went home last night after the game and told my wife we got
lucky to win the game. She told me no Syracuse deserves to win. I thought the
game was handed to them but if you really look at the game that was Alta's
fault for dropping those ball and Syracuse capitolized on it. I know people have
said they lost players in last years game and they couldnt move the ball. Hey
that football people. Syracuse came to play and punched Alta in the kisser. On
film Alta looks average but in person they have a great team. Ammon Barker has
IT!!! Syracuse on both sides of the ball played just as hard as Alta. Say what
you want but Alta didnt come ready to play. It happen's thats life thats
sports. The back up quarterback is a great kid and football player. I know the
team is behind him and will be ready to battle Bingham on thursday. Syracuse can
play with any team in the state any given day. I hope for a great game next
Congratulations to the Titans, you played a good game and forced some much
needed turn overs to take that lead in the first; 17-0 was a touch hole to climb
out of. Alta, good fight. You tied it up and, in my opinion, moved at will
against a talented Syracuse defense, once you held onto the ball. But Syracuse
made the stop atthe end, when it counted most.I was really sad to
see Anderson go down! He's an increadible QB, and I've enjoyed
watching his career. I wish him the best. Good luck to the Titans against
Bingham. I think they could have possibly beat Bingham with a healthy QB, but
I'm afraid that without anderson, Syracuse will be in the same position
that Alta was against Syracuse in 2011. What would have been a competative
semi-final round just became a dominant victory for Bingham.I hope
all the guys who haven't been giving Region 1 any credit will calm down a
bit. They made a great run this year, and have as much to offer as Regions 3 and
I was proud of my brother, Ammon Barker (as my name suggests). Pretty sure he
put up his 8th 100+ yard game last night. Wherever he ends up playing D1 ball,
UCLA, Utah, or wherever, he has a bright future!I hope the Syracuse
backup QB can get ready! I would love to see a Jordan vs Syracuse in the final!
Ammon Barker is a stud. He was fun to watch last night. Like I said I was scared
he would take over. He is fun to watch. Great player. He would do great in the
First i want to say, I TOLD YOU SO!!! All you Region 1 non-believers. I knew
Syracuse can compete with the people down south of us. Just goes to show you
that there schedule wasn't a factor. And second I want to wish Brock a
quick recovery. You played a really good season. We would of really needed you
Brock against Bingham. And Binghamalum your boys did catch a break, Syracuse
would of made it to the Finals if Brock didn't get hurt. But Lets i
shouldn't count us out quite yet. We still have a really strong defense. I
hope it will still be a close game come Thursday. Go Titans!!!! And
best of luck to you Brock! Are record wouldn't be what it is if it
wasn't for you.
Rememeber-the-titans,No one didnt believe Syracuse wouldnt be
solid,I just keep saying no one is affraid of Region 1 because they can
make the turf all they want and be able to play in the title game,but
lose, No football titles for region1 since 2004, so why would they have started
now.You have no idea about Bingham, and who they are currently, and
they like being the underdog, and Im sure had Anderson not gone down, everyone
would of probably picked them to beat Bingham. Bingham will win with
a biggeR stronger offensive and defensive line, and I dunno if anyone wants to
know, but Bingham hasnt let up more then 20 points in a game this season.Not even that amazing SYRACUSE defense can say that. (24 to alta at home) There front 3 are all D1, boise state, utah and byu.There LB just
commited to Hawaii, the other two are going to BYU.They moved weiters back
over to DB to help. he is going to BYU.Bingham would of been ready
with Anderson there or NOT.Feel horrible for the KID. They have now
0 chance now31-7 Bingham
@BinghamalumSyracuse has 4 defensive lineman that have D-1 talent
and strength, they just have D-2 size and High School height. One thing all of
you salt lake schools are unaware of is that Syracuse is missing their best
offensive lineman who is out this season with an injury.(only a junior and will
be back next year, along with most of the offensive and defensive fronts) If he
was playing you would not have as big of an advantage up front. The linebackers
are small but they pack a punch, and the secondary has a D-1 corner, a 1-AA
safey and Fonua is being recruited by an SEC school(Missouri). The defensive
game plan against Alta was conservative because of their receiving corp.
Additionally, one of Alta's drives was 3 yards, set up by an Anderson INT.
I would say Bingham is the favorite without Anderson playing but Bingham better
come ready to play,just ask Alta.
have sBinghamalum Come on dude wake up.Quit puffing your chest out
and beating it like Tarzan. You talk about how good yur team is and who has what
offers, if they cant play as a team they wont win. Sorry we beat the team you
wanted to play at RES but im here to tell you its time to scout another team for
this week. I think you are one of the haters that thought Syracuse doent have a
snowballs chance in heck to beat Alta and if they did the streak would be over
at 11. You have blown hot air all season, even when Lone Peak beat you guys
there is always an excuse why the team got beat. Syracuse is and will be a good
team with or without Brock Anderson. Brock is an awesome kid and athlete. Whats
cool is how do you know we dont have another offense with the back up
quarterback. I think Lone Peak beat you with a back up as well. Binghamalum, do
you home work on what your talking about. The "Cuse" will be ready to
play. Get ready for a game!!!!!!!!!!!
What GoAggies and Football Fan and TitanJake and RememberTheTitans said. Just
don't want to get wrapped up with BinghamAlum again, the guyjust
doesn't get it.@ProudBigBrotherI wish your brother
all the success in whichever school he chooses. As a UCLA fan and having seen
your brother play. I would love to have him at UCLA, I would have loved to have
seen him catch one or two of the nine touchdowns UCLA scored last night against
AZ. Thanks for the insight that you have given, I hope you are not gone just
because Alta is now out.And because I have decided I don't like
BinghamAlum and his rhetoric. GO CUSE!!!!!!
Binghamalum just because region 1 hasn't won the finals in a few years
doesn't mean they won't. Syracuse is really talented and if they had a
healthy Brock Anderson then i would say they would walk past Bingham straight
into the finals. But we don't and that just means what ever film bingham
watches won't work because Syracuse is going to change up its Offense and
will come hard. Syracuse is going to have a hard time adjusting but its not
going tobe a blowout. Yes you guys have big people so we are at a disadvantage
there but Don't count us out just because we arn't as big as you guys.
We probably have the best Defense in the State and you guys are going to have a
hard time with us. Syracuse will show to the game and they will play there
hardest. We fell short last year and Diante Micthal will make sure he is not the
one who comes up short. Syracuse has worked hard and will not come up short
again. Prepare Bingham, the TITANS are Coming to this game.
It does mean they wont! Fremont was this talk last year, played LP
and got beat by 30 points@remember the titans"if anderson
was healthy they would walk past Bingham"ha oh typical Region
one fan! Bingham knows the TITANS are coming, you should be be siked
about your team and what they have accomplished this year. But this
is Bingham, there defense is better then Syracuses you will see really fast. BUT ALL of our talk is for nothing because my favorite to win state is
still.....Jordan. No one has showed they can stop them, so all of
our talk is for nothing at all. But yes Bingahm is my pick thursday
Thanks, Utah Bruin. I would love to see Ammon playing in Blue and Gold!
UCLA's freshman QB, Brett Hundley, is looking really good, and will be fun
to watch over his college carrer, especially if he's throwing to my
brother! Great win over AZ, who had just upset USC. I like that balanced UCLA
offense.I'll still be around, giving my two cents. I've
been saying all year that I expect Syracuse to be the team to upset Jordan in
the finals, and I'll be cheering for them next week against Bingham.
However, with the loss of Anderson, I fear that I'll be cheering for the
under dogs instead of the upstart Region 1 surprise favorite. But Syracuse has
several powerful offensive weapons other than Anderson, so they may be able to
get things together. Having seen them in action, I have no doubt they will put
up a fight!Does anyone know the condition of Koa Mo'o (DB/WR),
the other Syracuse player who got injured? Was it a concusion?
Both Bingham and Syracuse have very powerful defenses. With that in mind, if
whoever advances can get some early stops against Jordan's offense, who has
been having some very slow starts late in the season, and capitolize on those
stops with some good offensive drives, putting points on the board, then they
may be able to dig a hole deep enough that Jordan won't be able to climb
out. Because Jordan WILL make a run, for sure, and threaten to climb out of any
hole they find themselves in! That is the only way I see Bingham or Syracuse
coming away with the title, is if they can control Jordan's offense early.
Because you can't shut down Jordan's offense, all you can hope to do
is slow it enough to allow your offense to outscore them. And if Jordan gets
into an offensive rythme early, then I think they'll run away with it, and
Kafentzis will likely get his first of three championships.But
we're getting ahead of ourselves :) We still have the semi-finals to worry
Bingham 42 Syracuse 14Jordan 49 Lone Peak 21
binghamalum...Fremont didn't lose by 30 to Lone Peak last
year...41-21 is 20...where did you learn to do math? Let me guess, Bingham High
School?? Lol. And don't talk like you know anything about Syracuse's
team saying "they would have had a chance with Anderson, but now they have 0
chance with him gone." FYI: Football is a team sport and
that's why 11 people play on either side of the ball, in case you've
never watched a game or played the sport.Go Titans! You need to
dedicate the semi-final game to Anderson and crush the arrogant Coal Miners!
Are you kidding me, You guys said that Syracuse is to weak and that they played
and easy schedule. Now that they just knocked out Alta no one stills believes
that Syracuse is good. How could you say that the best Defense in the state will
give up 42 points to Bingham. I can't believe how much hate Syracuse and
region 1 gets. This is why i hate all the Schools down south. You guys
don't know what a good team is, because one of those good teams just
knocked out the favorite alta and still no gives them credit. Syracuse just
knocked out Alta!!! and still no respect. I agree with the 14 points but 42
seriously, give Syracuse's defense credit.
Binghamalum, how has Jordon shown that no one can stop them and Syracuse
hasn't? No one has stopped Syracuse!! Why is it so hard to believe that
Syracuse is good? They are 11-0 and i can easily see them going 12-0 but then
Brock went down. So yes we will be missing something on offense, but our defense
is still going to be playing. I sure hope Syracuse finds something to go on
offense. because man i would like to just rub it in your face that Syracuse is
better then Bingham.
I love that none of you have a clue, I can't wait for thursday.
Markymark which side are you talking to?
@ProudBigBrotherHundley is for real and would love to hear the
Hundley to Barker for six over and over and over again.@RememberTheTitansHey, don't say "you guys", I have
been chiming with BingdumAlum for a week now trying to get him to remove his
homer goggles and see past Bingham and give some others some credit, I have been
Syracuse's biggest advocate for over a week now. So don't say you
guys. With that said...Syracuse proved themselves
Friday night to be worthy of credible talk and quiet the naysayers (BingdumAlum)
who kept crying about 'Cuse schedule. As I said, schedules mean nothing,
and papi makes a great point and the point I made all last week about it being a
team sport. Is it going to be a bit tougher this week for 'Cuse losing
their star QB, sure it is, but like I said all last week, 'Cuse plays
disciplined assignment football. The coaches will come up with a new game plan
on offense, but the defense is still the same with one new DB minus Anderson. I
still like Syracuse and Jordan to meet in the title game.
Markymark you are still mad your Mustangs got beat. There will be next year when
they are rebuilding and maybe make the playoffs. Dont be a hater just because
your team went out early.
Thanks go aggies, but don't assume that herriman is my team. Cause the
happiest day of the year for me was when herriman drew east. My team is still in
it and will walk away with the trophy. You just put yourself in the category
I'm talking about. Don't assume.
Markymark, all Im saying is dont be a hater if ya dont know. It would have been
a great game to see if our teams met this year. We had a home and home with East
last year and my understanding is they backed out and picked up Pineview
instead. Dude it would have been a good game.
