With the spring sports season heading into its final month, it means summer is just around the corner. That also means the Friday Night Lights of high school football is now less than four months away.
In anticipation of the 2019 season, the Deseret News has gathered and published high school football schedules for every team at DeseretNews.com.
With three new high schools opening in 2019 (Crimson Cliffs, Mountain Ridge, Cedar Valley), there will be 107 schools playing football this fall.
Lone Peak, Corner Canyon, Orem, Summit Academy, South Summit and Milford are all defending state champs, even though with realignment, Corner Canyon and Lone Peak are in the same classification this season, as are South Summit and Summit Academy. There is no longer a 1A classification, so Milford will be competing in 2A.
Twenty-four programs across the state will have new coaches in 2019:
6A: Jayson Anderson (Weber), Tyler Garcia (Cyprus), Pala Vaitu'u (Granger), Olosaa Solovi (West), Carson Mund (West Jordan) and TBD (Taylorsville)
5A: Casey Miller (Cottonwood), Brock Bryant (Hillcrest), Mike Carlson (Skyline), Mike Meifu (Mountain Ridge) and TBD (Brighton)
4A: Jaron Tate (Crimson Cliffs), Lyndon Johnson (Ben Lomond), Weston Zabriskie (Cedar Valley), Eric Alder (Stansbury), Andru Jones (Tooele), Bart Bowen (Logan), Travis VanLeeuwen (Ridgeline) and Christopher Howell (Sky View)
3A: John Ramage (South Sevier) and Will Hawes (Judge Memorial)
2A: Ben Felder (Altamont), Patrick King (Gunnison Valley) and Foto Katoa (Layton Christian)
Here’s a look at some of the marquee match-ups this fall: Orem at Corner Canyon (Week 1), Dixie at Desert Hills (Week 3), Bingham at Corner Canyon (Week 3), East at American Fork (Week 4), Skyridge at Orem (Week 5), Ridgeline at Sky View (Week 6), East at Bingham (Week 7), Lone Peak at Corner Canyon (Week 7), Timpview at Orem (Week 8), Davis at Fremont (Week 9) and South Summit at Summit Academy (Week 10).
