@JJ2222Dispel the myth that Olympus did not play anyone? There is
nothing mythical about it. They played zero out of state teams. The top
nationally ranked team they played all year was Orem, who is 1,248th in the
country. The teams you listed ended the season ranked as follows:American Fork 1,886thLayton 1,317thWestlake 2,545thBingham
1,564thBountiful 3,703rdCorner Canyon 2,041stWest Jordan
3,310thThat is the definition of not playing high level competition.
They did not play the top in-state competition. Which would be Lone Peak, ranked
39th in the country and headed to another national tournament in a week. Olympus
should take notes and schedule some teams that will challenge them.
Maybe brother Jones will be hired by BYU then it would be good to see Rylan in
Cougar blue. Both the Utes and the Cougars put players in the NBA and have
great tradition. But playing for the Y is a great choice.
Olympus and PG are playing next year on November 27th. They are also in the
Elite 8 with Copper Hills, Bingham, Davis, Corner Canyon, etc.Can we
please dispel the myth that Olympus did not play anyone this year? They would
have played Copper Hills but American Fork beat Copper Hills at the Elite 8
tournament. Olympus then beat American Fork by 36 the next night. Olympus also
beat Layton, Westlake, Bingham, Bountiful twice (who beat PG), Corner Canyon
twice (who beat Riverton) West Jordan and everyone else they played. This years
Olympus team has absolutely nothing to prove. The results against top in state
competition speaks for itself.
so hope you play Lone peak, copper hill and pleasant grove this year.
For all the talk about how Rylan worked hard to put on weight, why not mention
how much he did put on?
GO RJ!GO UTES!
Correction to my first comment... NICO Mannion, not Niko.
Rylan's dad Chris Jones said I will let Rylan play all the sports he wants
and he will gravitate to the sport he is good at and loves. He is such a fun kid
to watch play. For Rylan its all about the game and not him. Congratulations MR
Excited for the day Rylan joins the Utah Utes. Now if Utah can add another
former player's son to play alongside Rylan. Niko Mannion, come on down!
Rylan is a great addition to a very talented incoming class to the University of
Utah. Exciting times ahead. Go Utes!
Nice to see Rylan get recognized for what he is, the best player in the state of
Utah. What an amazing year for Olympus!
