Wow, what a team Bergen Catholic is. If they didn't turn the ball over a few times and take the pedal off the metal in the 2nd half they could have scored 80. They are a team of studs, well conditioned and disiplined. We had no answer for their offense.

I hope Jordan can figure out some things defensively.

This is not last years JHS team. They have been "dismantled" now twice this year. Looks like no repeat this year.

Why is a high school team from New Jersey playing a team in Utah?

Don't mess with Jersey!

Jordan's team from last year would dismantle this year... no story there. They lost that O-line, goes to show you where the real value lies. There is one thing that remains constant, Jordan's inability to stop anyone defensively. This year or last year teams could always drop 30+ points, just last year Jordan could drop 40+.

Why not?


D-cord needs to go!

Eagle, this is high school, not college or pros. It not only costs a lot of money, but it begins to distort the game at the high school level. I have a number of problems with this. It's not good for the sport nor for the kids.

Esquire, there are sponsors that pay for the travel and the stadium. It didn't cost the teams that traveled in anything. Parents had to pay to get here but the schools had no cost

And Jordan at 1-3 is still ranked #5 in 5A by the D-News?

@Parry is a Farce - I think its because Jordan is 1-1 in Utah and lost to a powerful East team and then lost to two powerful out of state teams.

It is hard to judge where Jordan actually falls because of the teams that they have played. Jordan killed an 0-4 Fremont team and then got killed by a powerful 4-0 East team. So, only time will tell. I'm hoping Herriman can repeat their Lone Peak performance against Jordan and get the "upset" win. Ironically enough, Jordan will still make the playoffs in Region 3 with either the 3rd or 4th seed. Jordan plays 4 ranked teams in their last 6 games...so each week will give us a better clarity of where they rank.

Big Ben,

Of course Jordan makes State. If they beat Copper Hills and West Jordan, which they will, they finish 4th in Region 3 and go to State. I still think they are way over rated. Press and coaches picked them 3rd at best and mostly 4th in their own region. You just don't lose your entire offensive line and not have a drop off. They are scary, but week in and week out just not that good, definately not #5 in 5A, and way below where they were last year.

Jordan still has Offensive fire power, against Bingham, Alta, and Brighton; it could be a track meet. Scoring 60-90 points combined.

Pig skin fan:
Bingham will destroy Jordan

Coach Kafentzis played for the Chicago Bears, so that makes him a genius on the defensive side. Just ask him.


Frankly i don't think anyone will destroy Jordan, they are too good at putting points on the board to be blown out. All of the Region games with Alta, Bingham, and Brighton should be fun to watch and high scoring.

Jordan has a lot of back seat drivers out there, I guess if you all were really good enough to coach high school, you would coach.
