Saint Pride

Mormon Trail football team had an historic season. They made it to the playoffs for the first time in Mormon Trail history, and ended with a winning record of 6 & 4. All four teams that they lost to were ranked in the top ten in the state, and had a total of 5 losses between them. The team had a lot of community support throughout the season. Mormon Trail brought a bigger crowd to the playoff game than the home team. Coach Johnson said, “I’d like to say how proud I am of the team for all the hard work they put in and sacrifices they’ve made to make this season the success it was. The seniors had a goal of making the state playoffs from day one of freshman year, and even though they came up short a few times, they never stopped believing that they would reach that goal. It’s a testament to them and their work ethic. What a great group of young men!” Congratulations Saints!IMG_8128
