    Good Luck to both teams should be an awsome game, if mother nature helps in the mix maybe a factor for aiding East. The weather would aid in slowing down the passing game, as for the running game of East ball security would be the key and playing a close to perfect game. By all means it can be done, I would throw a wrench in it and run a little spread has everyone forgotten East was running a variation of the spread before Matich got there. Its gonna be a great game hopefully its a nail bitter and not a one sided affair. Good Luck to both teams .

    If the TV coaches were bit more humble and stop making excuses for tough game and losses than people wouldn't take shots at them.

    In their win against Westlake, it was about their mistakes that kept the game close rather than Westlake outsmarting and outplaying them. If anything, it Westlake that made the costly mistakes and practically handed TV the win (WL should have been up at least 21-0 at halftime).

    East spotted them 10 but overcame it because they had smarter coaches than WL ( don't know why they tried to pass in second half when they were running at will in the first half).

    All Wong did was say it was TV mistakes and barely gave credit to the other teams. Enjoy the humble pie again.

    Your also wrong about them rising again as their demise is here to stay. If their smart, they'll go 3A after next year. Many of the poly players in that area will start going to LP, WL and now even back to Lehi.

    The back up kicker is a girl. She was brougt onto the team half way through the season so she isn't rostered. Rumor has it that she was messing around, kicking a football after soccer practice , and te coach asked er to show up for kicking practice with Van Minde the next day.

    Logan is a beast. Don't go into the game with a bug head about it. But everyone was betting against Highland last year... So best of luck to our rivals. Bring Region 6 another trophy.

    What's the big deal about "dethroning Timpview?" Don't most people hate the Yankees and the Dallas Cowboys because they are on top too much of the time? Timpview has a quality program every year and if you know anything about athletic teams, you know that you can't stay on top forever; it runs in cycles and don't count TV out in the future. As long as Wong is there, TV will be strong and competitive. They have young men who can afford to attend summer camps and benefit from the training and proximity available at programs and individual coaching that others cannot. They have tradition on their side and that makes a lot of difference. Polynesians are competitive athletically just as Asians are competitive academically; that's just the nature of things. Count the number of Polys on the all-state teams and hear what I'm saying. Now I've shifted gears and I apologize for that, but don't count the Thunderbirds out yet!

    I love all the people that dismiss East. I hope, they all read the negative comments people give them. This will serve as motivation that they need. All East needs is more heart and motivation and trust me they are probably hearing it all from Sports pundits and blogs all over... This will drive them.

    All people love to talk about is the 46-14 win. Played starters, rest starters, Whatever. They locked the region win. They didn't want to risk injury. Their mentality was to play and not get injured. Even if they won, most likely would be playing the same team. That game didn't matter. That's fact. I honestly don't know why that game was scheduled that late anyway. I love the underdog and i'm an East 05' Alum. but East does have a difficult task. But wait you'll be seeing a lot more heart then they showed in a (Non-factor game after a region title)

    East didn't look that good, Logan will smash them. This game is over already

    Well, Jake2010, I will point out to you that East not only beat those reigning 4A State Champs, but shut them out. Let's just save all the posturing and see what happens.

    With Logan having beaten the reigning 4A State Champs it will be them, not East that reigns the next 12 months as State Champs. You can bank on it. :)

    Cheese Fries: I think the girl is #98 I don't know what position. But East is a great team and their mistakes can be fixed (QB pitch relationship w/RB). I was very happy to see that East's pass defense improved. Their pass rush has always been good but to see the DB's step up was amazing. #8 & #23. East should utilize their best player more too. #16. The Championship game will be a great game but I am going for Logan. Good Luck to all.

    It's pretty entertaining to see how you supposed adults take yourselves and your opinions about high school football so seriously. Let's let the boys (and girl) play, and just see how it all shakes out.

    Hey UtahUtes10 -- you are resting on semantics by saying East's varsity team hasn't been beat. Lets keep it accurate here . . . while a large number of JV players played in that game, there were also some first stringers that played as well. Claiming East's varsity hasn't been beat is just wordsmithing because the record book shows a 1 in the loss column.

    And it is also worth noting that the Logan "varsity" players were liberally substituted out in the later parts of the game.

    What surprises me is you didn't attempt to wordsmith the player's quotes - - suggesting they meant something else.

    "Apparently, this team leader suffers from amnesia as the 46-14 score did matter. Maybe the QB was on the bench preparing for the playoffs (resting)"

    How exactly did that game matter? East had already won the region (the only games that mattered) And yes, East's varsity team hasn't been beat. The game against Logan where the JV team played doesn't count. Tune in next friday to see the first actual meeting of logan and East.

    Didn't these 2 teams already play earlier this season? And didn't East decide to "rest" its players for the playoffs then soundly get whooped. I love the East QB's quote in the article "It doesn't matter what the score is or who we're playing". Apparently, this team leader suffers from amnesia as the 46-14 score did matter. Maybe the QB was on the bench preparing for the playoffs (resting). Someone is later quoted "we can't be beat".

    Look at the stats boys . . it looks like you were beat . . and I believe it was by the Griz. Very funny how some players love to hear themselves talk, but they don't even know their own team record and apparently have a very short memory.

    State playoffs are a fun time of the year that's for sure - - and the quotes and dumb things the kids say are equally as fun to read in the paper as the play on the turf. Good luck boys . . I expect Logan to complete their dream season next week. East Leopard quotes in the sports pages won't be nearly as entertaining then!

    Congratulations to East!You got off to a slow start and played 3 quarters of good football. You will need to play 4 quarters of great football to beat Logan. Good Luck!

    Dear Writer:

    I think you mean "floorin'" and "awry." I stopped reading after those two gems.

    How great is it that we don't have to see Timpview, Bingham, Alta, or Juan Diego in the state championships. I will be attending all the finals, they should be some solid (new) competition. Congrats to East, you will have your hands full with Logan though.

    East definitely outmanned TV.. TV needed to play perfect to win and obviously didn't.. Missed some opportunities when they went up early. Credit to East.

    Thinking Logan wins by 2-3 TDs but in a state final anything can happen.

    East when they face the up tempo of Logan offense they will wilt. The key is to stretch the defense forcing them into a lateral pursuit angle game then you have them, tired and leaning and reaching instead of getting there feet and hips to the play.

    Defensively, Logan will need to stay at home in gap control and East will be forced to bounce to the pitch where they are turnover prone. If East fails to keep the football away from Logan they are done, over.

    East plays with heart and they didn't even have their A-Game going.
    They will with Logan. East will shock all. State Champions...
