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.
The defending 2A state champs are taking a step up this year, and will need to take down defending 3A champion Juab to earn a repeat title and add to the Rabbits’ state-record 34 state championships. Juab won the Divisional B meet.
Delta is sending 18 wrestlers to the state championships, including five who won their divisional weight classes. Jayden Petersen (113 pounds), Jake Jackson (152), Tanner Shields (170), Yair Moran (182) and Brandon Atkinson (195) will lead this year’s Rabbits into the state finals.
Day is in his first year at Delta, after replacing Jason Thomas, winner of four prior state titles as a coach, and has a chance to pick up No. 1 of his own after leading his team at the divisional round, making Day our Anython boys team Coach of the Week for the week of Feb. 5, 2018.
Nominate a deserving coach for one of our weekly honors by sending an email with the name, school and sport of the coach and the reason we should honor him or her to firstname.lastname@example.org.
