What an interesting week. Wind storms have caused a lot of problems for Utah over the last few days, and almost everyone was impacted in someway. Power outages, damages, school cancelations, and even football practices were cancelled across the state.
Although it may not seem like a big deal, missing an entire practice when prepping for a game isn’t easy to come back from. That is a whole day not learning plays, assignments, and not getting reps to become the best player you can be.
Even though practice was canceled, and teams could have been gloomy, Utah high school football still put it work. Many teams took the day off to go help the community clean up after the storms. The Davis High Football team posted on instagram, showing the O-Line serving their community, as pictured above. Members of the Layton High Football team spent the day helping others as well. Layton and Davis face off this week in a rivalry game on Davis’ home field.
These two teams were not the only ones who helped out, as many clubs took to the neighborhood to help others clean up. This shows what football is all about. Team work and helping each other. It also shows that Utah High School athletes have class, and are always willing to lend a helping hand.
