in Local Roundup/sports

Head coach: Ed Larson

2018 record: 3-2 in 5A Region 6, 5-6 overall

Playoffs: Lost to Jordan, 56-28, in 5A first round

Players to Watch: Carsen Manookin (Sr. RB), Jacob Vasquez (Sr. LB), McKay Wall (Sr. WR), Josiah Westover (Jr. TE/DE), Ryder Hatch (Sr. DL), Tyler Ehat (Sr. LB)
