Bingham shot their selves in the foot time after time with turnovers and costly
penalties. But this game came down to Bingham being totally out coached! They
take 2 timeouts on the drive just before LP went down for the winning score.
Instead of taking the delay of game on 4th down to give them an extra 5 yards to
work with, and punting it away and try to pin them deep, they go for it. Even
if it goes into the end zone, it's still an extra 25 yards they make LP go
to get the score. Poor calls all night long. On the 4th and 25 play that
Shumway scored on, how are there no safeties back deep? Bingham could run at
will on them, and continued to put themselves in 3rd and long situations by
incomplete passes on 2nd down. Bingham should have won that game by 2 touch
Gunner, great analysis. I thought Bingham might be able to capture their 4th
title in 7 years, but looks like they go on the road for a second round game and
lose like last year. I'm believing that Jordan and the Northridge/Syracuse
winner will play in the final (have not actually looked at the bracket to see if
that is possible but it is looking like those are the 2 best teams).
I wasn't that impressed with LP really. I could see them losing a region
game or 2 possibly. Probably not though. But I think Bingham can overcome this
and still win on the road in the 2nd round. But it was a costly loss for sure.
Gunner you are something else.Just take your beating and
give props to Lone Peak. Only thing that matters is scoreboard.You
always have excuses...cmon. Wasnt that impressed with LP? Well all that
comment does is cut your team down becasue they lost to them. Quit critisizing
the coaches and man up. You lost.
As an avid LP fan and supporter, I honestly can't see why Miles isn't
the starter. When you run the spread, you need someone who can pass the ball.
Miles certainly has that ability and can even run pretty well too. Too bad that
a kid can move in because he doesn't like his current situation and
displace a kid who should be the starter. Come on Tony!
Hope LP's QB is alright. this was a great game even with all the turnovers
and mistakes. Bingham's management of the game late was atrocious, after
getting a big pass play to just try two pitiful run plays was bad. Bingham will
bounce back at least I am hoping
I really enjoyed this game, it was exciting. Loved seeing kids that grew up
around here and that I coached when they were young do well. Even though
Highland is a split city as far as high schools is concerned, and my kids attend
American Fork, it is still great to see all of the kids we've known for a
decade do great things at both schools. Love it.
It was great to see Miles come in and lead his team to victory. Great
performance by the young man who is a senior and been there his whole high
Great game last night and a nice comeback by LP. There were enough turnovers by
both teams to lose that game and Bingham had their chances in the 1st half to
put the game away. They didn't and couldn't stop a hot QB who came in
the 2nd half to lead LP to the win. I'm not sure where the mindset comes
from that if you're a senior and just because you've lived in one spot
your whole life, that means it's your time to start on a team? Get over
that and go with the player who will help your team win the most games. Kids
transfer and move all the time. If the senior QB was head and shoulders the
best above the junior QB then he likely would've been starting and playing
most of the minutes. He did start the first game against Bountiful and they
lost so both of them have had off nights. With that said, he was the hotter of
the QB's last night and did an great job, along with the defense to lead
the Knights to the win.
This game was very Horrible as a bingham fan to watch.Its been the
typical Bingham, They have a awesome front 7 u cant run on! But what
is Binghams weakness every year???Corners and Safetys, and Lone Peak
got a gift with the better throwing backup QB, and he was smart, Throw to both
of my D1 caliber recievers, who are muchhhhh bigger and stronger then the
Bingham DBS,The starting QB ran everyttime he dropped back where the
2nd string realized throw it to your athletic wide outs! they are much more
athletic then binghams, just get past the bingham front 7 AND its easy.Lost to them and Alta by 4 total points! becuase of one thing! BAD PASS
Defense! Im so sick of the dual QB options Bingham does year in and
year out! won it in 07' dusty heap only QB to play, in 09, 10 you
have one QB in Cantwell, Pick one and stay with that! unreal, Tonga
has the bursts, but you keep doing wide pitch lefts to #30 who is not a RB!Bingham got OUTCOACHED ALL NIGHT! Thats something that doesnt
As a former All-State DB from Bingham it is not the matter of the athletic
ability of the Bingham's DBs, it is a matter of the defensive coaching
staff at Bingham leaving them on an island constantly. The front 7 at Bingham is
always dominant, because of that the Bingham defensive scheme is to bring a
relentless blitzing package majority of downs. It is impossible for any DB (for
any team) to play man to man all game long. The front 7 always gets the credit,
but whenever the Bingham DBs get apparently picked apart it is because that
front 7 does not get near enough pressure. This has been the case in the recent
Bingham success beginning in 07. How about mix up a defensive scheme against
spread offenses (LP, Jordan, Alta) and not putting so much pressure on the DBs?
These spread offenses are starting to figure out how to attack this blitzing
Bingham actually plays more of a tampa 2 against those teams. Didn't play
very much mad at all the other night. and when they did it was in a nickel
package that was man with two safeties over the top. I guess you didn't
really know the scheme to well when you were there.
Re; Bingham AlumIn 2009 there was a 2 qb system Cantwell and
Hannay#30 Is a running back as always has been, He's the one
that averaged about 10 yards a carry the other night.
I had the opportunity to coach Braden Miles for a few years in Little League,
he's a great kid. I havent been able to understand why he has not started
all year. If there were any questions as to his ability to do the job I am sure
there arn't any now. Job well done. It was also great to see
Joe Malenga and Braxton Smith and Garrett Harris play for Bingham whom I also
had the opportunity to coach.Nice job boys and best of luck to all
of you on the remainder of your seasons.
