There are many topics to consider, such as:
Why do you think Woods Cross has had such trouble establishing sports programs?
Who's the best soccer team you've seen this season?
What football players are the favorites to win this year's MVP awards?
Should the Utah High School Athletic Association be able to prevent Viewmont from hosting a playoff game because of poor sportsmanship?
I'll give you my quick take on these subjects, and look forward to hearing your voice on these issues and many others. Wildcats on the rebound
I really believe that Woods Cross is on their way to reviatalizing their football, baseball, and basketball programs.
The reason they have struggled in various sports over the past 15 years comes down to one thing -- the administration.
You could point to various other reasons, such as student transfers, and the coaching carousel they've endured, but ultimately, the administration hasn't had the emphasis on sports that is needed to help their programs thrive.
An example of this was their past unwillingness to provide coaches with an opportunity to have their own staff. No coach can be a one man show and have success.
The administration can do so many things to foster a supportive environment, from easing coaches burdens with field preparation, to attending every game.
The current administration appears to be on the right track.
The gold standard in this county is Davis High. They are competitive every year in almost every sport.
It is no coincidence that their administration has three former football coaches on it.
Vikes edge Braves, 'Cats and Knights as best team
The best soccer team I've seen this year is Viewmont. This is a tough one to answer, be-cause Davis County is loaded, but the Vikes play with such a cool confidence, and they have the best balance of any team.
Binks is the most valuable
If I were to cast a vote on the MVP of the county it is a no-brainer. Nick Binks of Bounti-ful.
The Braves could have fallen apart with the rash of season ending injuries, but Binks has held them together with his leadership off the field, and he is the most dominant player in the county on it.
Defensive ends aren't supposed to register 10 tackles a game, but Binks always does.
There's a reason he'll be playing at Rice-Eccles stadium next year.
UHSAA on the prowl
It's about time the UHSAA stepped in and did something about some of the shocking displays of poor sportsmanship that occur at high school athletic events.
They had to do something, but prohibiting Viewmont from hosting a home playoff game was wrong.
They penalized players for this upcoming season for something that they had no part in.
The association should have acted swiftly and suspended those players involved, last year, or suspend the head coach, but don't penalize players that work hard this season for something they had nothing to do with.
