HHS' enrollment approx. 750. Skylines enrollment approx. 1400. This was
announced at the game!
well i think the eagles arent that good. hurricane has 700 kids skyline has like
1500 hundred and they bareley beat us the only reason they won is because we
came out bad if we came out hard the the score would have been 25-0
i love the way that the eagles take all these people that say bad things about
them and then beat them with out a word from them. people that have a lot to
say that is bad about others should really kram it! you need a good dose of
humility and be a good sport. go eagles!!!
skyline has the enrollment of a large 3A school. Hurricane has more players in
the program then skyline. Skyline is amazing for being as good as they are for
how few students they have
The whole first half of the article is full of nothing but excuses. Why not just
admit that the little 3A team put up a good fight instead of trying to make
excuses why you didn't blow them away.
Skyline wins with great coaching of the players they have. Maybe you should look
into why kids choose to go to Skyline. Another sour grapes loser using the
recruiting whimper at 6:00 am Aug. 24, 2009. Get over it and move on.
But they also can't win with there own players.
What's your point eaglekilla. Kids want to play for Skyline because they are a
perenial winner with a proven program from a coaching legend. Algernon Brown,
the team's star running back, knew about Dupaix's reputation before he came to
Skyline and playing under him has exceeded all expectations. "It's a
privilege to play for him," Brown said.Give the bogus "recruiting" whine a
Skyline could have blown out Hurricane but they didnt because they thought they
could coast the last three quarters and Hurricane dominated them. The held the
Eagles offense to ONE touchdown and several 3 and outs. Take away the first
quarter and Hurricane could have won this game. And in reference to Juan Diego i
think the Soaring Eagle could beat Skyline this year, that is if the Eagles
played like they did against Hurricane. Glad to see that the blue and gold
pulled it out though, take it to the Titans next week!
hey skyline try to make it through one season with out a star player that you
recruited from east cyprus(aldgerin brown)murry ect.
Kudos to Hurricane for traveling 5 hrs to play a perrenial 5A powerhouse and
giving a tough impressive effort. They will be the team to beat in 3A. Oh, and
ALTAFAN, you can't have it both ways. You make a sarcastic comment of congrats
to Skyline for an "impressive win", implying Hurricane was a weak opponent. Then
you discount Skyline's win over Bingham in last year's opener by saying "it was
the first game of the season and many of Bingham's starters were unable to play
that game". Hello McFly...this was the first game of the season and Skyline
played Hurricane without 2 starting lineman and their best defensive player. So
pick a position; you can't have it both ways. By the way, if it wasn't for
bonehead penalties by Bingham giving Alta a second life, Bingham would have
blown out Alta in last year's championship.
Congrats Eagles from Nagasaki Japan. Wish we could be there but we need to be
here. Take it to Olympus.
If anybody else noticed it was 21-0 at the start of the 2nd quarter. Skyline
thought they could coast and Hurricane did battle back. But the statement that
Hurricane dominated skyline the 2nd half? they scored ONCE more than Skyline
did. The facts are Skyline had 2 starting lineman out along with they're captain
best defensive player and MLB Garrett Battaglia. Plain and simple Skyline could
and should have blown out Hurricane. But with alot of younger lineman in they
thought after the 21-0 lead they could coast. Skyline will be perfectly fine.
They get both lineman back this week and Battaglia week 3. Watch Skyline work
they're tails off this week and take it to Oly next Friday. And "See how Skyline
does this week" at 9:04 please for the sake of others don't post on these
messages becuase you have absolutely no clue what your talking about. Your just
making a fool of yourself.
We traveled up with the team and arrived at Skyline about two hours before the
game. What a classy school! We were greeted by a welcome sign on their marquee
and also a sign on the fence going into the stadium. Every person we met was so
kind and helpful and one very nice person asked us if we were spending the night
and offered her back yard for us to sleep in if we needed a place to crash! We
have been to many great schools, but this was above and beyond what we had
experienced before. Thank you Skyline! I wish the outcome of the game would
have been different but what a class act you all are.
I was at the game...early jitters were shown by the Tigers which benefited
Skyline. Two long snaps over the punter's head by Hurricane plus one
interception was what helped the Eagles. I credit DuPaix for throwing the ball
a ton--it caught Hurricane off guard (as it did the Skyline faitful).Those who were at the game saw Hurricane settle down and outplay Skyline for
the remainder of the game. A questionable call cost the Tigers a 3rd qtr
touchdown--which would have pulled HHS within 6 points.Costly
victory--Algie Brown got injured.
Beagles, congrats. Really impressive win... For those of you saying you would
beat JD, you wouldn't. Think of JD as a smaller version of Alta. They are only
two miles away and get many of their kids from the same area/talent pool. You
did win it all in 05. Let me be the first to remind you though that despite
that, you've taken a pounding from Alta for the last six years (even in 05) so
don't go saying you could hang with anyone. As for the comment made regarding
the first game last year against Bingham, bear in mind it was the first game of
the season and many of their starters were unable to play that game. I'm sure
you remember how the next matchup against them went...
Hey "What??",Here's a little reading assignment for you to get your
history straight. This past Wednesday in Prep football: "A coaching legend still
going strongSkyline's Dupaix has piled up 281 wins during coaching career"
by Maggie ThachGet over your old, tired discredited argument about open
enrollment. Its the program and the coaching that makes Skyline a winner, not
open enrollment. Skyline is no longer the biggest school in the Salt Lake
Valley. Enrollment numbers have decreased steadily over the years but Skyline
continues to compete in 5A, even though the school has a student population of
just about 1,450 students.The Eagles have made it to the playoffs every year
since they took it all in 2005, advancing one step further every year. Last
season, the Eagles beat Lone Peak (1,900 students) and Layton (1,700)to get to
the semifinals against Bingham (2,250).
It was a good game skyline played good and so was hurricane good luck to both
teams next week!
Who ever skyline plays they are going to win. It does not matter if hurricane is
a 1a,2a,3a,4A OR a 5A team, it doesn't make a difference. Yesterday was my
birthday and what is the best birthday gift then seeing my eagles win the season
opener. Hurricane for all we know, they could be the best team this year. And by
the way "See how skyline does this week"...... GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT! We
don't play Juan Diego this week or this season for that matter. We play Olympus.
RETAIN THE ROCK!!!!! GO EAGLES!!! By the way, if we did play JD we would smack
those guys around too.
Hey, Get a life (and a brain),Nice revisionist history lesson! Skyline
has had low enrollment forever and started the "open enrollment" mess that is
Utah high school football. So, before you pull that excuse out of...whatever
orifice it's been festering in, it could easily be used against you as open
enrollment got you those more recent state titles. Hmmm, now we should hear
Hurricane was not lucky, they are just that good of a football team. Skyline
really needs to learn to play a full game of football or this will be a long
good job skyline! next week will 10x better....hurricane was so freakin lucky!
and they know it.
I was at that game and let me tell you Hurricane beat up on Skyline for the last
3 quarters of the game. As "Impressed" said take away those first quarter
mistakes and the Tigers could have easily won this game. Skyline needs to learn
to play a full football game in the future and honestly the Tigers are one of
the elite teams in 3A so it wasnt an easy win or a gimmie win. Heck i think the
Tigers would have beaten up on some of the worse teams in 5A. Way to pull out
the win Skyline, see you at Olympus next week.
we dont play juan diego smarty pants we play olympus a 4A school and a rivalry
Excuse me "See how Skyline does this week", but you're selective (or challenged)
memory failed to recall that Skyline opened preseason last year with Bingham and
shocked the mighty miners, who didn't know what hit them. Due to declining
enrollment numbers over the years, Skyline applied for 4A last year so they
could play against schools with similar enrollment size but were instead put in
a different region in the new 5A realignment. Even with 4A enrollment numbers,
Skyline has competed well in the toughest 5A region winning a state championship
in 2005 and advancing to the 5A quarterfinals last year losing to Bingham (a
MUCH bigger school). Let me also point out that 4A "powerhouses" Timpview and
Cottonwood got humbled by new 5A powerhouses Pleasant Grove and Alta in their
preseason openers yesterday. But I guess you know more than a legendary coach
with 8 state championships and 100+ more wins than any coach in the state.
why are you not playing 5A schools is this the best you can do what a joke .
I was at the game, Hurricane dominated skyline for the last 3 quarters, but
didnt have enough time to overcome the deficite. Hurricane started the game
terribly, interceptions, miscues, penalties, snaps from center over the head of
qb and punter, but settled down and played excellent football, the are definatly
going to be a good team.
They play Juan Diego, which only a few years ago was a mighty 2A powerhouse, but
still "Little League". Is Skyline trying to prove they are good by scheduling up
3Ateams? Wow, I am Impressed Eagles........Now if you can go .500 playing 5A
will it be a season worth playing? or a complete joke, and worthy of a move to
3A where you could be championship material...LOL!
