I've never seen a team like this at the high school level. I had heard the stories, but finally made the trip to Ogden last night to watch in person. Wow! Look, I'm a Ute fan, even when they are down, but I'm thinking this LP team could run with some college teams. Well done Knights

This is awesome to see. It shows the power of coaching since this team has had success before Haws, Mika and Emery arrived. You don't have to be from a traditional powerhouse city have a great team. It's the style and system of the head coach that makes the difference.

eastcoastcoug, I agree with you to a certain extent, because I have seen great coaches that have built programs in small schools that could compete at any level. They may not be able to dominate at any level, but they can compete. But are you saying that parents (i.e. Haws or Emery) of the players in the program don't make an important contribution to the excellence of the program by their support of the coach and the system? Or the natural talent level of the players themselves that makes a difference?

To do something like what is happening at Lone Peak, there needs to be a confluence of all of the elements that I listed above, kind of a "perfect storm", one might say.

@eastcoastcoug: While Quincy is a quality coach, don't discount the talent. As I recall, before Haws and Emery there was another Haws (Tyler) and another Emery (Jackson), and someone named Funk. UGradBYUfan nailed it: "there needs to be a confluence of all of the elements."
