CODY HOBBS, Roy, football: Whether it was dropping punts inside the 5-yard line, hauling in an 81-yard touchdown pass or his game-saving interception, Roy's Cody Hobbs did a bit of everything last Friday night.
The most important during Roy's 27-20 victory over rival Fremont was his interception with 28 seconds left to thwart a Fremont fourth-quarter rally.
That interception helped Roy wrap up the preseason with a 3-0 record heading into next week's region opener against Mountain Crest.
Offensively, Hobbs finished with six catches for 208 yards and an 81-yard TD reception. Three games into the season Hobbs is one of the state's leading receivers with 20 catches for 503 yards and three touchdowns.
HAILEY SKOLMOSKI, Riverton, girls soccer: A Deseret News all-stater, this senior midfielder has picked up right where they left off. She's scored 11 goals this season, tied for most in 5A, and has Riverton off to a 7-0-1 start and a No. 5 ranking.
Last Tuesday Skolmoski scored both Riverton goals in a 2-1 victory over American Fork, including the game-winner in the 60th minute. Two days later she picked up a pair of assists in a 2-0 victory over Lehi.
The future Ute has scored in six of eight games this season.
In 2013, Skolmoski scored in 15 of 17 games and finished with 24 goals, tied for fourth in 5A. Riverton was eliminated in the first round though, and Skolmoski is hoping to lead the 'Wolves deeper in the postseason this year.
