Coach comment: “After last year’s (2018) successful season that resulted with Beavers first region title and having lost to a quality team in the state semi-finals. 2019 promises to be a challenging and exciting year. This team prides itself in hard work. Many of the starters have been starting for three years. With the experience of this team the different style of play is fun and exciting to watch. The experience of the team along with a tenancies defense hopes to make up for the lack of depth.”

Coach comment: “Parowan soccer is coming off of a very difficult 2018 season when we had very little in the way of team chemistry or knowledge of the game. As the new coach at PHS I have made it my mission to bring these boys back to a place where they can compete against the best. We have a handful of returning players who bring with them the fortitude that only hardship and struggle can produce as well as a new crop of fresh young talent hungry to prove themselves worry of notice in the sport.”
