Great games today. Congrats to Jordan of course, but also congrats to PG for a
great run through the one-loss bracket. They did better than I gave them credit
so kudos to them and Coach Henry.
Every single team in the state tourney "faces adversity" at some point
in the season. "We have all been through so much" is too cliche and is
not worthy of an article heading or article reading any more.
It was a great tourney this year...I enjoyed watching the last two days at UVU.
Jordan was the best team "assembled" this season, and Bountiful was the
surprise of the tourney.....congrats to both programs!!!
Pleasant grove not a class act. Their head coach can be seen sliding head first
past first base after they beat bingham. A classy coach would walk over
congratulate the opposing coaches let the kids celebrate the victory. What I
witnessed was appalling to all of us in the coaching profession. Bingham
coaches had to seek out coach henry to shake hands. Maybe they can win the non
existent summer state title again. Congrats jordan
Congrats to Jordan on the 5A championship. They had a terrific season!
It is nice to see a new winner emerge out of the talent in 5A.This
year's tournament especially the last 2 days has been once of the best we
have seen.PG players held their own against Jordan until Championship
game.As you watch Jordan's position changes you could tell a
different confidence came about them.Shaver behind plate, Gomez on mound,
Krueger on 3rd. You through in Lisk at short and keep Hathaway at center, those
players cover your entire field. There is alot to be said for players that know
play style of one another like those players do. Jordan losing 10 seniors
next year will make a long rebuilding phase, Fife was lucky to take over when he
did, because he has the CREAM OF THE CROP in Utah. Anderson must be regretting
his step down.Shaver - Mr. Baseball, Gomez - MVP. Bingham lost out on 4
of the states top players with them going to Jordan.Great season Jordan.
Nice to see Bingham out early. Copper Hills was a surprise this year and
Cottonwood out early was a surprise.Nothing like High School Baseball
PG fans are spirited but could also step up their sportsmanship. Their constant
heckling of Jordan players after striking out was out of bounds. Time for their
administration to step up a bit on this issues...
Agree with 'Playaplaya' and 'Eagle' comments. Too much
mustard on that PG hotdog for me.
PG fANSlove them or hate them, I never seen so many people be all about
one team in my life, that if nothings going on right, they are the worst fans
around, but if they are winning they make sure to let people know. There Head
coach showed one of the worst displays of sportsmanship I have ever seen,
especially out of a team who everyone picked to win it this year! He did a
wonderful job with his team through the losers bracket, they survived three
games because every bounce went there way, but that's baseball you have to
get every break! I laughed at how EXCITED he was when he played
BINGHAM, PG acted like they had just won the state title! To bad another
title for the SL valley schools! OH and I loved his fantastic giving
of SIGNS when he makes it about him self giving about 30 seconds worth of signs!
They are passionate which can be good, but they are horrible
compared to the school down there street, the respectful AF cavemen! Congrats to the Beetdiggers, this years best 5A TEAM!Jordan and Bingham
the last 3 state champs in both baseball and football!
