WOW! What a start. I guess I would have to root for Bingham because my dad graduated from there in 1949 and my grandpa graduated from there in 1922.
Both of them were on the school's baseball team.


Definitely rooting for Brighton!! Go Robbie Hutchins!!!!

Scott Schulte checking in from Milford, Connecticut...cheering for family friend, Kyle Gearig and Bingham.


Schultz may have the worst hands I've seen for the "best tight end in America." Two games in a row he's dropped easy balls to give the other team life.

Bingham dynasty lives on.

From an 07 alum... It's still a great day to be a Miner.

Congrats to Bingham! A well deserved championship. But Dynasty? Yeah, No!

7 min to go in 4Qtr...down by 2 1/2 scores and Brighton throws in the towel and punts. You know with that backup QB in that cant throw for Bingham they were going to run it and run clock.

glad the Brighton staff wanted to keep it "closer" instead of trying to win it and punted.

What a joke.

congrats to Bingham.

Great game. Congratulations to Bingham on the title. Congratulations to Brighton on a fantastic season.

Both 5A and 4A produced some amazing football this season. Can't wait until next year.

I guess this game, and this day can put to rest who the best team in the state is, and which team has the best O-Line in the state! Bingham with a dominating O-Line, and defensive performance!

I think that statement about best team was made when the starting quarterback went out, it shows what a team truly is. It is not one individual star, it is not a bunch of stars placed on one team, it is a collective synergy of will, desire, and effort by an ENTIRE team!!

Congratulations to the Bingham Miners on a perfect season!!

Bingham definitely deserves to be called the best team in Utah. I would love to see Timpview and East play the Miners. East might be too one-dimensional on offense to beat Bingham. IMO Timpview is as good as Bingham right now, but their loss to PG early in the season means the T-birds are #2 in the state. Congrats, Miners!!

I'd love to see a 4A vs 5A game as well. Seems like such a no brainer from a financial point of view if nothing else. The turn out would be massive and the profit from ticket sales alone would do both schools some good. They could also put it up for charity or something since it would fall within the holiday season. Oh well.

I am also okay leaving it as is. I cheer for both 4A and 5A anyway. Ultimately I'm a Skyline fan, but I love watching Bingham, and Timpview as well. Someday I hope to see Skyline return to glory. The late 90s team was legendary.

Husker1, Timpview lost before Covey took over at QB. After watching him dismantle a decent Salem team, I knew he was something special. Not a better playmaker in the State. It would be great to see a Bingham vs Timpview true STATE championship game.

fact check

It was the 2006 team that went 14-0, not the 2010 team. The 2010 team was only 13-0 because the financial backing for a match-up with an out-of-state team at Rio Tinto Stadium fell through at the last second.

One word to define the best team in Utah.... UNDEFEATED. Bingham is defiantly #1 2013 State Champs no question there. Good game Brighton, you guys have some of the most faithful fans. Nobody on the Brighton stands left early and they were loader than us!!! Brighton will be pretty solid next season. I love and miss high school football. Thank you Bingham for an unbelievable season. MiNERS RUN UTAH FOOTBALL!

South Jordan, UT

Great performance by Bingham. How big was that when Bingham comes out in the second half without it's starting QB and runs a nine-minute drive, even if they only got a field goal. It turned the momentum and put all the pressure back on Brighton.

Huge props to the offensive line. Brighton knew that Bingham was just going to run the ball at them in the second half and they couldn't do anything to stop it. Best O-line in the state. Outstanding defense gave up only 1 TD on a short drive following a turnover. This against a team that led 5A in scoring ppg, well, before this game anyway.

Gritty running by Scott Nichols.

Congrats to the team and to Coach Peck and his staff on an outstanding year!

UtahBruin: I don't know what you call 4 championships in 7 years. I'd say that's close to dynasty level in my book. I think this game answered the question of who has the best O line in the state. The 2nd half, Brighton knew Bingham was going to run the ball, and put 8 guys in the box. Still couldn't stop the run. That's the line saying put it on our backs! So good to be a Miner! Great job boys!

South Jordan, UT

I had hoped that with the East loss and the Bingham win, the questions would end about who is the best team in the state. It's clearly Bingham, period. Bingham was #1 in the entire state from wire-to-wire. They proved their mettle one game at a time and NEVER faltered. East couldn’t beat Timpview, which couldn’t beat PG, which couldn’t get to RES in the 5A. Can we please let it die!

Against the other seven teams to reach the 5A final 8, Bingham went 7-0, beating #2 Brighton twice, semi-finalists Jordan and Lone Peak, and then Alta, Riverton and Herriman. They already are the undefeated TRUE state champion.

Bingham also beat Valor Christian which is 11-1 (only loss to Bingham) on their turf and VC will play tomorrow for Colorado’s 5A title.

I can’t help but wonder if the 4A fans in Colorado do the same thing as the Utah 4A fans.

Great Game Bingham. Coach Peck deserves an atta boy for the consistent and successful program he has helped build. The Bingham kids came out and dominated on both sides of the ball. Brighton hold your heads up. You hung in there with a top 25 team.

Since 2006 (last 8 seasons), Bingham is 95-12. 24-4 in play-off games. 8 appearances in the quarterfinals (actually been there for 10 straight years). 7 semi-final appearances. 5 finals appearances. And 4 state championships.

What do you consider a dynasty?

South Jordan, UT

oops, fact check myself now

VC, CO is in semi-final tomorrow, not the finals
