Mariner has been huge so far. Catching balls from a good quarterback has made a big difference for him!!

Re: FNL Scores Week 1 2019

Viewmont over Davis 16-13. High value entertainment, a dog runs onto the field during the game and lays a deuce. On live TV (KJZZ) the Davis coach yells “The dog s*** on the field”

Re: Kevin White interview with Jordan Love

I'm no orthopedic surgeon, but from my understanding a torn meniscus isn't fully debilitating. I'm dating myself, but I remember Dan Marino tearing his meniscus during a game and giving the doctor the diagnosis himself and then continuing to play. It would definitely affect mobility and range of mo...

Re: Beer being sold in more stadiums

We drove up to Boise last month for the Garth Brooks concert on the blue. People were saying that it was the first time alcohol had ever been sold in the stadium.

I spent the last three years as a district president in the Ute Conference little league football. The best thing to help with the parent problems was to move the sidelines back. The wider the sidelines the less problems with parents.

I am surprised more players don't go into the portal. It gives you a chance to talk to other schools and perhaps gauge your value. It is not binding.
