    The Utah schools will not get him. Austin's sights are set on a national scale. USC would be a great place to set him up for a run at the NFL. It will be fun to watch this kid's career unfold before our eyes the next 5 years.

    What is Seminole talking about??? From an OLD Beetdigger, but a current Thunderbird. Thank goodness the DesNews was smarter than KSL Sports which honored Eddy Hall as the MVP of 4A after Timpview outlasted them in the state championship final. It was Lloyd, a drop-dead formidable defense, his great receivers and a dependable kicker that made the difference in the state championship game. Go Beetdiggers!! Go Thunderbirds for many years to come!

    Careful with BYU! Not sure they would know what to do with a QB like this.

    Congratulations Austin. Great accomplishment. Lou Holtz said. "Coaches have stopped recruiting the athletes because of tHe Parents". Lets hope the Dad will head head these words. He could be a concern for many great opportunities for Austin. I wish the best for him.

    Congrats all around! Quite an accomplishment!

    I too was banking on Loyd from Timpview. Bet it was a tough decision to decide between the two-both well deserving. Both were the cream of the crop this year in a pool of great players. I figured Loyd because he was a Senior and Kafentsis is a shoe in the next two years. Will be fun to follow him.

    The future looks bright for both Kaf. and the Jordan program.

    Always great to hear about an athlete whose head still fits in his helmet.
