    Cantwell is the best QB that I have seen come out of Bingham for as long as I can remember. He really is impressive. If you could have a fantasy game of between last years team and this years i think 2010 would win hands down. Last year was a great team but i've never seen a group of athletes this talented play together on a high school team ever. They are so good, that this season has been kinda boring with nothing but blowouts! Just knowing that they are so superior to the rest of the competition makes it hard for a fan to really get excited for the games. Think how hard it is for the coaches to keep these kids motivated! Great year Bingham!

    anderson was a stud, know him personally! he went to SLCC for baseball, he turned down USU AND alot of small small D1 D2 to play baseball at crappy JUCO, but anyways, not a dad at all,
    that line last year was great, but against ALTA and against DAVIS, cantwell and langi ran over ppl, the line did not do that great, yes they were stinkin good, but so is this years TEAM.
    who did offense throw to last year??????????
    you know agianst Trinity last year, if cantwell played it would of been different, same reason for state, if he didnt play against DAVIS they would of lost, this year, they could play a backup qb and probably still win it!
    bottom line is way beter offense then last year.
    Heap was a STUD center, TUNI DOES NOT EVEN PLAY for BYU right now, so how can he be the best lineman ever?
    Not giving your own bingahm team this year who hasnt lost as a group for about 10 years, is bad buddy!!
    go miners! parents of kids are funny!

    Biker 100-
    Take away the players you claim Bingham "recruited" and you still have one of the best teams in state history. And as mentioned earlier Bingham has one of the lowest numbers of athletes that are out of boundaries so don't make it sound like this is a team of all-stars gathered from around the valley. It is a group of all-stars from Bingham. Most of them have played together for years so lets hear the next excuse that their state title this year should be "tainted"

    Hey binghamalum or should I say O-lineman dad.

    I don't care one way or the other. I follow BYU football and from what I understand, Tuni was the best lineman they have ever had, their TE is also a redshirt at BYU. They had another one go to USU and one to Navy. That is 4 D-1. This year, you have 1 going to BYU, can't remember his name #64 I think and the kid who was hurt v. Jordan who is going to USU. (Keep in mind he started last year too). I am sure he is a little better this year.

    If you want to go back and read my post, I did say Cantwell won the championship game for them last year. I just said IN MY OPINION the Offense was better last year. You come back with how much bigger and stronger they are this year. I know about all the D-1 talent, but only 2 are from the O-line. I thought the QB was good last year. My bad.

    DBs? Anderson had some issues the law, but he was a stud. Not even sure who hansen is. sorry

    I'm glad to see that somebody, yankee doodle, will admit that the best teams in the state got that way by recruiting the best players from other schools.

    For one, you are just some parent not wanting to let go of last year, yes they were stacked last year, but this year all DL AND LBS are signed D1! so both them DBS didnt even go play, anderson and hansen didnt play college football, and the offense was not stronger last year, this year they are all bigger and have more threats on the outside to pass to because cant well is 62 percent and cantwell had to rush for 4 touchdowns against DAVIS and your saying the other QB hanney was better? you need to let go sir
    This is now, that team was great, bu this is the best bingham team to every play!
    top 3 in utah football history!
    Better believe
    60-10 BINGHAM 2010 State football champs, another white banner in the gym!

    Good article. I am still not convinced this Bingham team is that much better than last year. Defensively they are a year older and more experienced with most of the D-Line and Linebackers. They lost a good MLB and a couple great DBs. The Bingham games I saw this year, they D looks better. #19 and #17 are studs and much bigger and stronger than the 2 they lost. Teams MAY be able to beat them deep, but the QBs have not had time to throw. Should be the same story today.

    I think the offense was stronger last year, mainly because of that line. Tuni was the best and strongest lineman I have ever seen play. The center in the Alta semi-final game was straight up awesome. The QB was extremely athletic last year and a little better passer, but Cantwell is just one of those kids that just win. They would not have won last year without his running.

    So if this Freemont team is just as good as the Davis team last year, which I doubt. I still see Bingham winning by 30

    Bingham also kept hearing how good #2 was for Davis last year, and he was good, almost 2,000 yards rushing for the year. He just wasn't good against Coach Peck's dominating run D.
    Great day to see the last game of the greatest Utah team ever.

    And before Sid 6.7 or any other Bingham haters get on here, open enrollment is part of high school sports so deal with it.

    #2 was held to 51 yards against Bingham's team from last year. This year's Bingham team is much much better.
    Fremont will not run roughshod on this D. Bingham will score often and blow them out in the 4th quarter, no rally needed today.
    GO MINERS!!!! Can't wait to head up to the game in a few hours.

    First off Fremont is no Davis of 09, the spread will be much larger this year and the sizes of the Miners will eventually wear down the Wolves as it did the Darts last year.

    At least next year Bingham will actually have teams to play in there new region that will offer some type of a challenge. Perhaps they will actually play there first string in a complete game next year.
