What is funny to me is the lack of respect for Herriman. True...Herriman did lose to Riverton and Skyline. I will remind everyone that Riverton was a neutral site and Skyline was away...it happens sometimes. However, no mention of the East loss to Logan...other than to say...well the kids weren't into that game. Well I saw the film....East was deep into the game...East's just doesn't know how to defend the pass!!!

FACTS:

Herriman Win%: 80
East Win%: 88

Region 7 vs Region 6: 3-2
Region 6 vs Region 7: 2-3

Herriman/Highland Score: 31-14
East/Highland Score: 34-13

Herriman/Clearfield Score: 50-7
East/Clearfield Score: 47-0

Herriman Home Wins: 4
East Away Wins: 5 (includes play-in game)

Herriman Home Losses: 0
East Away Losses: 1

Herriman Points Scored Rank: 1st
East Points Scored Rank: 2nd

Herriman Points Against Rank: 14th
East Points Against Rank: 7th

Herriman 1,000 yd rushers: 2

Herriman is an 18 point underdog. Herriman will not get killed in the game and I believe they will actually win the game.

If east biggest weakness is the pass isn't herrimans strength the run not the pass

All the people still bashing the UHSAA for letting east play will feel foolish to judge once disney makes this a movie and we all go home with that feel good feeling in our hearts. You MIGHT know some facts, but there is more to this than the transcript of the hearing. You'll just need a good director and actors to prove it.

The dude bigbenzo88 with the stats. Of course Herriman's stats would be that high due to the weak schedule you play in Region 7. Example: Olympus, Skyline, Westlake, Hillcrest, and Murray. Come on now! Even Juan Diego (3A) can compete in this region. East comes out and puts it to Herriman this saturday. EAST TAKE STATE!

Not only could JD compete in that region

They would have won that region this year easily and could win it again next year if they were in it

I don't believe you have to be better than everybody else. I believe you have to be better than you ever thought you could be.
GOOD LUCK HERRIMAN MUSTANGS

Region 6 on a roll in first round, while region 7 is on the brink of Oh-no and 4!! No pressure Herriman! Might have to put the Dynasty label on hold for awhile....love it! High school football is the best!

The kids on the team are not at fault. The players that were ineligible were not integral to East's success this year. I am not saying East will win state, but if they weren't allowed to play in the tournament then whoever won the state title would deserve a an asterisk because they would not have had to play the best team 4A team in the state. UHSAA did right by letting the kids on the team go and try to earn something together.
