    According to Wikipedia he is 17 so he'll be 18 next year and able to play.

    The state championship is this coming Friday, so wouldn't the moratorium start the 23rd, not the 16th. Plus, he can do all the "work" he wants during the moratorium as long as it isn't associated with the school or coaches (along with a couple other minor restrictions).

    "He'd probably do ok at Utah State. But he's not a QB in the Big 10."

    Only one problem with that comment, Keaton at Utah State is probably better than any Big 10 QB, before the injury.

    Jordan should get a new D-Fense Coordinator, easy fix. Offense is solid with QB coming back. Maybe then they will make it back to Championship.

    He may rewrite the record books. But my guess is he'd rather have a couple of championship rings. Unless they do something with that defense, it isn't happening next year either. I think Anderson fell in love with him for Utah State, and then when he went to Wisconsin figured he had an in on getting the kid there. He'd probably do ok at Utah State. But he's not a QB in the Big 10.

    I agree, throwing accruacy a huge mark against him and maybe not a College QB. But they will find a spot for him. And he will still rewrite the Utah record books for years.

    This season didn't answer my doubts, and this last game didn't either. He will have the records because he plays in a high scoring offense and has started since he was a freshman. I bet he is pretty close to the interception record too. Definitely not a college QB.

    "Gotta get back to work on Monday"

    Per UHSAA rules from the UHSAA handbook, football goes into a 'dead period' for two weeks following the state championship. So there won't be any "work on Monday" unless they break the UHSAA rules.

    Kafentzis said it the best, I will be Captain and lead the way in 2014. Can't wait for next year. More Region 3 domination. I am predicting Brighton and Jordan in the 5A Championship!

    Keep up the hard work Austin. Pretty shallow comments on here. I don't think I would let DNews put my kid in an article. It's crazy you can comment not factual information on here but when you try to call out some of the commenters on here it is filtered out. Does that make sense Desnews????

    Kafentzis will rewrite all Utah records at Jordan. Go Team Kafentzis. Don't be a Hater! Hate the game not the Player.

    Kafentzis is currently 17-years-old and was born in April of 1996. He'll be eligible for the 2014 season.

    If he doesn't turn 19 before January 1, I believe he should be legal. Interesting that a junior in high school (Kafentzis) is as old or older than Jamaal Williams of BYU, an 18 year-old college sophomore.

    Uh, no he won't. He will be back next year as a Sr. He can play as a 19 year old Sr.

    ummm.... He's an 18 year old Jr.. Next year he will be 19 and too old to play high school sports.

    ummm....he's only a Jr. He'll be back next year for his Sr year.

    Too bad he couldn't end his high school career with a win. Wished we could watch him play next year but I guess he will be too old to play high school football. Good luck in college.
