Lone Peak was expected to waltz away with the title in Tyler Haws' senior
year. Coach Lewis is beatable.
Agree. I'm a big LP fan, but I remember that game when everyone expected
LP to win since Haws had championships his junior and soph years. I think that
team had Haws, Nate Austin, Josh Sharp and Tebbs and lost to a very good West
Jordan team by double digits....
He may be beatable but not as often as others in the state tournament. He won
the last 2 with teams not nearly as good as this one. The team Haws played on
his senior year was average compared to the more talented ones in his junior and
sophomore seasons. Outside of Haws and an improving Nate Austin, their other 3
starters were average role players. In Haws soph year they had, I believe,
Haws, Funk who was a junior, Clegg and Lindquist, both who went to play for
Dixie St. In Haws junior year all five starters 4 of them seniors signed to
play college ball. Besides Haws, if my memory is correct, they had: a PG who
signed with Dixie, Funk who signed with Fresno St and now is at BYU Hawaii,
Sharp who plays at BYU and Hamilton who signed with Iowa St, then LSU and is now
in the NBA with the Miami Heat. Everyone's beatable but this year I would
sure like my odds against the field, if I played for LP.
Any team is beatable in highschool basketball. The games are so short that if
your off for just a bit it can slip away. However LP has way to many weapons. If
they all stay healthy and humble, under the direction of Quincy they will not
lose. Next time your in Highland stop by LP high and go look at the basketball
trophy case. Coach knows how to work it.
Why do you all compare apples and oranges?Comparing that team when Haws
was a senior,That West Jordan team, had lost twice all year.PG
went to Boise state, SG went to Nebraska, and there junior gallegos or something
like that was there best player, and he went to suu, and didnt play after one
season there.They worked the mighty Knights, which I loved.But this years LP team has more. Tolson is just a boss, and does everything
rightYou have the best DEFENDER in the state who is going to BYU for
football. Who also by the way is 19 years old, parents held him back a
year. Playing vs boys this year, and he is not affraid of anyone.Mika
would roll over Nate AustinEmery is leaving after this year at LP for 2
yearsHaws still has another year, then he will go on a mish to, So I
still hate BYU restrictions. Notice in 2007, they had to play 2-3
zone, they were big and long, and couldnt guard people but could stand with arms
out and be ok.
@binghamalum interesting points, but Shumway is 18 until April
The only team that could realistically compete with Lone Peak is 2A So. Sevier.
They have the most balance and arguably the best coach in the state.
@JD Brooks.......That's nice, I enjoyed a good chuckle. Everyone who
follows basketball knows how well S.S. played at the Great Western Shootout at
Orem. Not quite ready for the big time but they are a great 2A team and they
should be the favorite come tournament time.
JD you're a real hoot. Gotta love the nonsense in your posts. SS 0-3 at
the Orem Shootout, LP 3-0. SS loses all games by double digits. LP wins their
games with an average margin over 20 points. That says it all.
