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 30 2017-2018 boys team coach of the week is Danny Ipson of the Dixie High baseball team. The defending state champions stay perfect in Region 9 play as they head towards season-ending matchups with the league rival they beat for the title a year ago, Snow Canyon. The Warriors are also unbeaten in region play.
Winners of seven state titles all-time, the Flyers win last year was their first since 2006, but Ipson’s team certainly has to be considered among the favorites this season as it hopes to make it two in a row. Tyson Fisher leads the way, 7-0 on the mound and six doubles and six home runs in the batter’s box. Cooper Vest is 5-0 on the bump, while Chase Lunden (6 HRs, 7 doubles) and Kayler Yates also power a potent offensive attack.
With his team at 20-2 overall, Ipson is our Anython boys team Coach of the Week for the week of April 23, 2018.
