Congratulations to Pleasant Grove.Just a quick observation however.
Is the Pleasant Grove quarterback Jeremiah Evans, the same kid who in the last
few years has played at Provo, Timpanogos, Spanish Fork, American Fork, and now
Pleasant Grove?Maybe I'm wrong, but I've heard a similar
name at all of those schools the last few years.
West side: you better believe it! He's a perfect example of what is wrong
with high school sports.
To clarify the record, he didn't actually play for Spanish Fork but just
enrolled there in the spring of his sophomore year before moving on to AF for
his junior year. He actually has played or will have played at four schools...
It was funny to see him at the UTE shoot. Jumping up and down being a real rah
rah guy. I am sure that his teammates realize that the only reason he is at PG
is because he could not start at the other 4 schools. He did start
summer workouts at SF, but was behind Money. I wonder what
school's class reunion he will go to? I agree with adwright, all that he
has been taught is that when things are tough, or the starting job isnt given to
you, we will just keep looking for a new house to rent at a different school
until you can start.
Wow,what an honor to be able to play football at 5 different high schools in
your career, most athletes only get to play for one. Think of all the close
friendships you can develop by meeting so many new people by going to a
different high school each year. Maybe Felt's Facts could do some research
and see what the record is in Utah for playing and the most schools. My bet is
we may just have seen a record broken.
The irony is that if he would have stayed at Provo, he would have likely have
been a two-year starter, perhaps even started three years. Provo has struggled
but it isn't like Timpanogos or AF was tearing it up either those years and
AF missed the playoffs last year. Now Provo is entering a new era with a second
year coach and a brand new facility, and he might have been the first signal
caller for this new era.
Honestly having been to 5 high schools myself i do not see the issue. Clearly
some of these post are from coaches, and/or parents of players with an ax to
grind. If it was all about the starting position as many have commented, then as
eagle states staying at Provo would have been the right course of action.
Clearly there are many other factors happening that people outside of this
family are unaware of. I do not know this families story, but as one who was
dragged from city to city state to state i can tell you from personal experience
there are many other reasons for people to move.
Maybe Wasatch will get lucky and have someone "move in" this year like
the other kid did the last two years. Things don't look too rosy for them
moving up to play with the big boys without a QB. Maybe there is a kid out there
who doesn't want to sit the bench at his school and could walk right into a
starting position at Wasatch. Last time I checked there are a lot of houses for
sale or rent in the Heber Valley right now. Wait, they had someone, but he moved
on to PC. Too funny...
