Does anyone know why Korey Rush is not playing and/or if he will play in the championship game?

They probably forgot to do the UHSAA paperwork. No worries, that just means he will be back for sure if that is really what happened!

midway through the 2nd quarter. I have obviously not given Oly enough credit. They are hanging tough. My apologies to Oly players, I have misjudged their talent.

This East effort reminds me of Logan in 2011. East players are not hustling off-ball. It is almost as if they expect Oly to tackle themselves in fear. At this point, East is playing entitled, and Oly is doing everything they have to do to stay in this.

You can actually see East players walking around while the play is live. They aren't sharp and they aren't earning it. That said, their size and speed is still impressive.

I love high school ball.

Based on what I have seen so far, I am not sure they will need Korey next week. East might be watching Olympus play in the Championship.

Logan, UT

I know that no body wants to hear this but I am so sad that Logan is sitting home today. As I'm watching the game I just keep thinking that Logan could have given East such a good game! Anyway Oly is doing pretty good. Hope they can keep it up in the second half. Not whining, just feeling bummed out:)

Oh Prep Fan you are brutal! But right.

Come on Oly you can do this. I love the fight you have put up in the first half now go get your birth in the State Championship in the second.

Go Titans.

It still feels so wrong saying that.

I am watching from Utah State University in Logan Utah, and I am supporting my Alma Mater Olympus!

All the way OLY. Rooting hard for you!

Ogden Utah! Gooooo East!


Korey Rush isn't playing because he is out with an injury.

Go Rams!

My name is masood and I'm watching from west palm beach Florida watching my boys finally take state like we should have the last 2 years!!!

Yeah it is over. East pulled a Bingham basically. Relaxed in the first quarter and turned on the gas after half time.

Chris Toronto, watching the game in Laie, Hawaii. I played for Coach Whitehead at East 2006-08, but I'm still a Leopard Fan. Go East.

I got to say though that if East plays like that against Timpview they are going to lose their shot at state....again. Bingham pulled the same thing earlier with that "this game is in the bag" attitude and come half time the score wasn't looking so good. When playing against top notch programs you HAVE to play hard. Even if you are the favorite to win.

East being upset again this year is entirely possible.

South Jordan, UT

I think it is unfortunate that Logan did not make it to this game. Not saying the outcome with the QB was wrong, just that I think Logan was the better team and this game would have been tighter in the end, even without East sleepwalking in the first half.

But congrats to Oly on a good season and a gallant effort in this one.

Salt Lake City, UT

If the championship game was played today"....East 13...Timpview 34.

Timpview would have rolled East. Sloppy play by the Leopards.

Should be a game next week...but I will take the team that has won 6 of the last 9 State Championships; a team that killed East last year; and the defending State Champion---Timpview. (instead of a team that hasn't won it in 25 years).

Tbirds 21. East 16

Sandy, UT

After watching both games today I believe Timpview will take this one from East. Covey is a great QB exspecially when he's out of the pocket. If Timpview can get a nice lead, it will be hard for East to play catch up against Timpviews Defense. They're fast and very athletic.

@tharef speed and athleticism is what they said with olympus but what happened? East was TOO STRONG, and FAST.
