That 68 yard pass looked a lot like a run.
Looks like PV isn't such a pushover like the JD fans on here thought they
would be. Tied 28-28
nice cheapshot on the PAT, PV
Congrats to JD they are a great team! This was a fun game to watch! I'm
hoping for a Dixie/JD final!
Wow! I jumped the gun. Tied 42-42
Craziest ending ever wow. JD should have gone for 2.
Congrats PV! Go Region 9!
@podunk utah--Don't be bitter just cause the great soaring
eagles lost. Congrats to PV on the win!
Beyond the incredible finish what impressed me most was the sportsmanship on
both sides. This was high school football at its best. What a shame somebody
had to lose this game. Congrats to the Panthers for keeping their composure and
to the coaches for making some very nice adjustments at the half. PV has finally
shaken the curse of imploding in a big game. Next week should be very
bummer for JD, good job PV. that was crazy
@adwightIf JD goes for two and misses, they wouldn't have even
had a chance to go to OT, they did the right thing in kicking the PAT. Besides,
who thinks that a team is going to drive the field on you in two minutes with
one timeout. And if JD just wraps up a player (The last TD pass by PV) they
win.So glad Pine View won. Just as Don Jose said above. Pine View
was not the pushover that JD fans did think they were. And not one JD fan can
say otherwise. Comments all week about how Pine View can't beat JD. Well,
they just did! That southern region is by far and away the best 3AA region this
year. The north region had JD and that was it. Now they are bounced. Dixie
and D.Hills is going to be a lot of fun tomorrow. Good luck to both teams
tomorrow. A very good P.View team awaits you next week.
Pine View spots Juan Diegc 14 points and still wins, yes the better team did
JD should have kneed the ball instead of scoring that last touchdown... That was
That may have been the craziest football finish I've ever seen, hats off to
both programs, all those kids played their guts, amazing! GO BENGALS!!!!!!!
Bruin: Obviously this is a decision that comes down to coaching philosophy. In
my opinion, if you score to make it a 7 point game pending the extra point, you
go for two to make it a 9 point game and make it impossible for the other team
to win. It doesn't hurt you because they still have to score and kick the
extra point to tie it up. I understand your thinking as well, it comes down to
philosophy in my opinion. I'd rather make it impossible (9 points in 34
seconds, 2 possessions, at worst 7 points with them still having to go the
length of the field) than possible for them to come back (8 points/1
possession). Hats off to Pine View and that runner on that last catch, that was
Juan Diego has great coaching....the record speaks for itself. But to score
that last touchdown with a one point lead gave Pineview the keys to the kingdom.
JD should have taken a knee on that last play and not gone into the end zone.
Pineview let JD score knowing that was only way they were going to get the ball
back with workable clock-time remaining. Still a great season for JD, but right
I don't wish any ill will to Juan Diego or their team, players and Coaches
but I am glad Pine View won this game. Juan Diego should play in the 4A class.
It's been a bee in my bonnet for the last few years and we all know it,
Juan Diego has an unfair advantage in the 3A or 3AA class. The wired thing is
this, Juan Diego would still be a top tier team in the 4A class and for the most
part they would probably do well in the 5A class as well. As a student body,
school and coaching staff wouldn't you want to play in the upper class?
That's just my opinion. Nice job on the Victory Pine View and
best of luck next week!
Wow, JD just take a knee and win. Poor decision and it cost them.
@ Don Josecongrats to PV on a Great win.but can you please tell me
which JD fan said this was going to be a push over? I know that the JD fans were
very worried about PV. like I said earlier the team with the least mistakes will
win, and that was PV. unlike others we give credit were credit is due. PV came
to play the fought a hard fight and came out on top, I am happy for them,and
wish them the best in the state finals. Our boys gave them all they could
give,but unfortunately it wasn't enough. we are proud of our boys for all
that they have accomplish through the years. how many seniors that you know of
can say that through 4 years of playing high School football as a group,have
only lost 1 game. thats pretty good if you ask me. PV will be a team to consider
next year with the return of that stud QB, but JD will also be a great team. So
enjoy this victory your boys deserve it.!JD FAN TO THE FULLEST.!!
@MykaljordanThere are many parents who are proud of their boys who
have accomplished min losses. You always refer to these boys who I have come to
understand is the seniors. You share no credit to the underclass men who is part
of that same team you refer to. It may be one loss for them but one that will
haunt you forever. Why? Because you let this one get away with questionable
decisions. PV I thought exposed your weakness which I posted before and that is
your corners. Lineup in empty set and throw slant routes all night long. I can
imagine the frustration of having a career like this senior group and leave high
school with no State championship. It was JD's to lose but I gotta give a
shout out to PV who never gave up. Very edge of your seat game. At least these
boys have region championship. Not every team get that award.
Mykal Welcome to region nine every week Maybe JD should schedule some tougher
teams later in the season Down here we have tough games all region long I
actually had JD by twenty eight congrats on a great season Trust me I know
that feeling of losing on the last play of three championships in a row on the
last play of the game
@mykaljordanI never fail to be impressed by how classy JD players,
coaches and fans are. Best of luck to JD in 2014.
When will the UHSAA (high school activities association) wake up and not try to
bleed the money coffers dry and give the popularity edge to a Salt Lake team
when they schedule the semi-finals and final game in the back yard of one team.
I know the field was scheduled way in advance and maybe SUU and Dixie fields
were not available for these days, but it would have been easy to look a little
into the future and have a back-up plan for the finals just in case it ended up
this way? I think the UHSAA pays for the buses and housing of three teams from
Washington County to travel to Salt Lake for these games. Since high school
sports are so out of control, financially, wouldn't it have been better to
play the games nearer home so that the three teams could have equal
representation in the stands? Parents and fans will make the trip no matter
where it is played, but it just seems wise and equatable if smarter minds had
something to say about this situation.It appears that the Salt Lake schools
(like East last year) got the advantage.
I agree oldcoach...JD had the game won, but decided it would be better to try
and score again. Didn't think it through completely. Feel bad for JD, but
not too bad cause they beat Hurricane 3 years in a row in the state title game
on the last play of the game. At least they didn't have a 5 hour bus ride
back to their school to think about the loss. I feel bad for the teams that got
stuck playing today in the snow...hopefully Dixie and my former Coach Monkres
can win today cause the PV/Dixie rematch would be a great state title game.
@justmethoughts,Our senior do have a state title, they play on the
championship team when they were freshman.! Just a thought. I can show you my
sons ring if you want to see it.! 1 state title 4 region championship . Pretty
good don't you think ?
Also I give the underclassman a lot of credit. But I'm talking about my son
that is a senior. I haven't watched to many underclassman games, but I hear
their real good. So sorry if you feel offended. Is you kid one of the
This game was the game of the year, hands down. Gutiest catch and run by a prep
player this year, was the one at the end of regulation. Give that the highlight
of the year, also.
@MykaljordanYes my son is a underclassman. Also congrats on that
ring. I do remember. Even though he was not a big part of that team, he did
contribute a little. I would think the Senior, Junior and some sophs had a major
part in that state championship. That is my point. You forget any underclassman
(Juniors, etc) who contribute to this team this year to assist in the wins. All
you talk about is the Senior class (or your son) which I agree was talented
however how about last year and the year before? They were all talented and
pretty good group. That ring you talk about is great but not the same as winning
a ring your Senior year where you are a major contributor to the team rather
than a little. I was at the game. JD parents walked around like they just had a
ton of bricks fall on them. They look dazed in unbelief. Why? Because for four
years we all had that this class will take State and when it came that day, no
dice. Your son had a great career at JD. He will do well.
@Justmethoughts, I know what you mean. A lot of underclassman played
a big role this year, but here's my point when my son was a freshman there
was no underclassman. When he was a sophomore the underclassman had their own
freshman team, when he was a junior the sophomores had their own team, and now
as a senior the underclass were there to help them. I'm not the only one
that thinks this my friend. You should listen to Coach Colosimos interview
before the park city game. As for not winning state this year, it doesn't
bother my boy as much as you may think. He is moving forward and getting ready
for college ball and a LDS mission. He did have a great Career at JD, it was the
best thing that ever happened to him and he will always remember the moments,
good or bad. Good luck to you son and out JD eagle next year, I know I will
still be coming out to watch them play.
@mykaljordanWell said. Young men are resilient. They get over these
things a lot quicker than adults do. Wish him much success in his future.
Everybody is just glossing over the real issue. JD should have run away with the
title this year. How do you not win a 12 team playoff? This was their best
chance to win a State Title for years to come. JD looked slow and undisciplined.
Jumping off sides, 12 men on the field multiple times and clock mismanagement.
As far as region titles, I would be shocked if they didn't win it every
year. Anyway, Chargers are on the rise and made history this year. JD opens with
Corner Canyon next year. My prediction is 42-14 CC. Good luck!!!!!
Do feel bad for Cameron Hansen. This kid is the best athlete on the team and the
only D1 kid. I hope this loss doesn't hurt his chances.
I'm glad Charger Fan is the authority on JD football... Will we get your
opinion on JD football next year on a weekly basis or will you actually be
sticking with posts about Corner Canyon football going forward?
@mykaljordanYou have always energetically supported JD and have been
nothing but a class fan! Congrats to you, your boys and all the JD faithful!You and I were going to meet at a restaurant a few years back during the
playoffs when I was up from So. Utah but I wasn't able to make it. My boys
played at PV, my nephew at Desert Hills.Congrats on your son's
mission call best of luck to you in the future!
@ SoUtHapaWe can still meet for lunch. Thanks for the wishes for my
boy, he is real excited about his future, and knows if he does what he needs to
do, Heavenly Father will bless him.I have 2 nephews that play on the current PV
Team and 2 that play on DH, so it's going to be fun to watch. I'm
excited for JD and wish them the best in the future. I still have a lot more
High School football since I still have 4 more boys that will be in high school
soon. It's always fun reading the comments of all the different fans on
here. The support of the fans for their teams is unbelievable and I love it.
When ever your up for some sushi let me know my friend. Good luck to PV and DH
@ chargerfanC'mon save your post for next year. No need to
predict scores for crying out loud. We just finished a great season but
disappointing ending. We were at the game. No need to tell us how the game went.
CC did have a good year so let us congrat you rather than leading to not like
you. You thought we should roll through easy huh and we didn't.Be careful,
you say CC will roll over JD next year and if you don't, what will it make
you then. Relax and let us enjoy our complete season and worry about next year
I can't agree more with justmethoughts ..@chargerfan, Talk about making history, JD made history by becoming the the team with the
highest winning percentage in the state. I know CC will be good next year, why
wouldn't it be since it has a lot if athletes that transferred from good
football programs, one if the was from JD. Since you have some coaches that
moved there from JD as well, maybe they can give the kids some if the JD winning
karma. Good luck to your chargers. And good luck to out soaring eagle in the
future season. @justmethoughtsHope for a great season
for your boy..JD FAN TO THE FULLEST
@mykaljordan,Sounds like you are a regular football filled family.
Awesome!With your family in St. George, especially at those schools, there
is no doubt we overlap somehow.Good luck again to your boys at JD, and all
these hardworking young men.I'm in the SL valley now, so, sushi
anytime is always a plus!I'm free for lunch today, brah. You just say
ChargerFanHansen is a stud, no doubt, phenomenal athlete and great kid.
There are also two other players being actively recruited by D1 schools, albeit
