I'm a Ute fan through and through, but I'll give credit where
it's due. And this kid is the real deal. Why can't we be happy for a
local kid to succeed no matter where he attends college? Last night was the
first time I've personally viewed this team play, and they are freaks! Yes,
in the best way.
The Lone Peak basketball team represents our state well (more than can be said
for many of the posters in these comments!). Congrats to Lone Peak.
Noway coach Biff! He's number one fer sure.
@duckhunted and motortrikeI did coach Talon in both football and
basketball for several years. He is the best ahtlete coming out of this state
this year. He is big, tall, very fast, and he has a 40" vertical jump. He is
an athletic freak. Yes you are utah "fans" and he only had 3
stars, and he didn't go to utah, and all of the other things you guys whine
about, but it doesn't change the fact he is the best athlete in the state.
BYU got him and he will be giving the utes fits in the coming years. Prepare
yourselves to just have to deal with it.
Coach Biff,"so you can choke on it when Ute players are eating
the dust from his cleats whenever he gets to the field."I
somehow wouldn't count on that if I was you.
Cats,A great example of what you stand for like raising money to move
families into your schools boundries? whoops that's footfall of course not
our basketball boys?
You live in happy valley coach Biff...where unicorns are real..Shumway is
another slow Utah County receiver/dback! Have you ever been out of Utah County?
Hey, Ernest, you just may eat your sarcastic words. Shumway is probably the
best all around athlete coming out of the state this year. How do I know?
Coached against him in football. Watched him for the past 3 years, so you can
choke on it when Ute players are eating the dust from his cleats whenever he
gets to the field.
mmm the only aggressive player on lone peak is a football guy!!
Hey, I cannot find this story in my Dnews this morning... did I miss
something. There is a story about Lone Peak Football, not basketball. Where
did it go?? Not in the Davis County edition??
I hope he gets the chance to try both sports at BYU. He'll be fun to watch!
Talon has always had the ability to do this, he has simply accepted a role on
the team that doesn't call for him to do it very often. He is the best
athlete on that team, and it isn't even close. He would be the star
I can't wait to see these guys playing for the Cougars!
Number one football player in state!
Go Lone Peak. You're doing a lot of great things for us and being great
examples of what we stand for.
Saw the game today and was very impressed. That lone peak team is the best I
have ever seen. I expect them to breeze to the finals. Davis probably had the
best chance to beat them although I was impressed with Brighton in the earlier
game. I just think that Lone Peak is too tough this year and should win another
He was unconscious BUT scored anyway? Wow, that takes talent.
Next dual sport athlete at BYU?
Maybe another Kaufusi from the #2 or #3 position... BYU needs some consistant
outside shooting in a very bad way.
Talon Shumway is an amazing player that would be one of the best players if not
the star at any other school. He's done a tremendous job in accepting his
role as a role-player when he could've been doing so much more all this
Congrats to the entire team. Keep it rolling and finish it out. Another shout
out to Talon Shumway. The defensive stopper showed why he is in the top 10 LP
scorers of all time. It's been fun watching you play both sports the last
couple of years. Good luck at the next level son.
