PrepsUtah.com has joined forces with Anython to announce this year’s coach of the week honorees. Each week during this school year, we select a boys team and a girls team coach who represents the best the state has to offer in coaching excellence.
Anython, a unique company helping teams and groups raise money to run their programs, is the sponsor of this award. The company will present to each weekly winner a certificate and a coach of the week water bottle and will provide the teams at the winners’ schools a special offer to utilize the fundraising services it provides.
Our Week 10 2017-2018 boys team coach of the week is Jason Lee of the Mountain Crest High football team. After taking care of Salem Hills 44-34 in the opening round of the Class 4A playoffs, Mountain Crest traveled south to St. George Friday night, where the Mustangs became the first team to win a postseason game on the road at Dixie with an 18-17 win Eli Wells hit a 21-yard fourth-quarter field goal and the Mustang defense got a huge stop as they hung on for the victory. Beau Robinson had a huge game and Jace Dart had 10 tackles and an interception, while Joshua Powell had nine tackles and Dylan Bostick picked up a pair of sacks to lead the Mountain Crest defensive effort. Nick Nethercott and Brady Hall led the way for the Mustang offense.
A major victory that that knocked the Flyers out of the playoffs and sends Mountain Crest to Rice-Eccles Stadium for the 3A semifinals makes Coach Wiscombe our Anython boys team Coach of the Week for the week of Nov. 6, 2017.
