Should be a great game. Two veteran coaching staffs. First-time match up between
these schools. Have to go with the Mustangs, though. Their speed, athleticism
and depth overwhelms the Eagles in the end. Herriman has already seen the option
this year and defended it nicely (win vs. Riverton with their wing-t option). I
just don't see the Eagle's run game being that effective against this Mustang
defense. Watched Skyline's victory over Juan Diego a few weeks ago and just
wasn't that impressed. We'll find out tonight! GO MUSTANGS!
This should be an awesome game. The winner is guaranteed one of the four Region
7 playoff spots and has the inside track to the Region 7 crown.Skyline has a good team and staff. I believe this will be a hard fought game
that won't be decided until the 4th quarter. I believe Herriman has the
momentum, talent and coaching to triumph in this game. The juniors and seniors
have valuable experience from last year being in 5A and the playoffs. I believe
the Riverton game will prove to be more valuable than most think. The Riverton
game gave Herriman experience running against the Wing T/option; experience
being down and coming from behind to win and it gave them experience playing in
overtime.The fact that Skyline is the long time elite program in
Utah and Herriman is the new upstart, the fact that Coach DuPaix and Coach
Wilson were former rivals (Skyline vs Highland) and the fact that Coach DuPaix's
son is a coach for Herriman make this one of the most interesting games of the
year.Look for Herriman to pull off the "upset" and move to
6-0 2-0 GO MUSTANGS!
Coach Dupaix is such a stud. Skyline has been extremely fortunate to have him
for so long.While the Eagles were lucky to have such a talent pool during
the 90's, that talent pool is waning due mostly to an aging area (a few other
factors as well).Because of that I just don't see Skyline being able to
get back to the top anytime soon, but with Coach Dupaix there they should remain
respectable whereas otherwise I don't think they would be.By the way, for
all those who pointed at Skyline for recruiting back in their hay-day,
completely false. It's not to say they didn't get some good out of area kids
that wanted to play there, but Coach Dupaix never recruited a day in his life.
That was always such a downer to hear that bantered about instead of giving
props to an incredible and ethical high school Coach.I hope when Dupaix
gets to 299 wins (2 more) that Skyline alumni will get to the following game and
pack it out wherever it is to show thanks to the greatest high school Coach in
state of Utah history.Go Eagles!
I think this will be the"Game of the Week"..Good luck to both teams.
If I didnt have to Drive to vernal to watch my son play,I difinitely would be
watching..!! Herriman and its high scoring offense matched up against coach
Dupaix and his greedy Defense....!!May both teams have a great and
injury free game..!meanwhile,I get to drive 4 hrs to watch my JD
SOARING EAGLES vs Unitah..!!!Gotta love High School Football...GO JD SOARING EAGLE..!!
I am with Motorbike. Let's all get behind Coach Dupaix. This will be a good
game. Eagles will win.On a side note, is it any surprise that
BigBenzo has commented? Love his school spirit! I wish that more Skyline
boosters were like Benzo, any article that implies anything about Herriman, he
is all over it. Skyline supporters need to step it up.
Great comment Motorbike I agree with you 100%. I have to say I
gained mad respect for the Herriman program at the JV game yesterday. Probably
the best football game I have watched in years. Both teams represented their
schools and communities well. It was sad some one had to win and some one had
to lose. Both teams wanted it and gave it everything they had. I expect the
Varsity game tonight to be no different.Benzo/Mykal/Golden
Helmet:Great comments it's always good to see you guys post. I always
enjoy your comments. Be careful on the road Mykal and best of luck to your
Soaring Eagles for tonights game.It goes with out saying that I am
picking my Eagles to pull out a hard fought victory tonight. It's going to be a
great game either way, I can't wait!Best of luck to both teams!Go EAGLES!
Where is binghamalum? She is usually ripping Herriman on every article and
commenting about how they would never make it in 5A. It is also a shock to not
see some comments from Gunner on how Herrian has not played anyone.
MMMustangs - Herriman is a good team. Hard to bet against Skyline though.
Should be a Great Game.
Just watched Herriman. Tremendous team. They will make some noise in the
playoffs. I wouldn't be surprised to see them on the turf!Eagles, a
couple of more weeks and the Rock will be home!
