As the Football Season is coming to a close it reminds people of one of the most important times of the year- The Football Playoffs! This is a cherished time of the school year because not only does it challenge our Football Team, it brings excitement to the school.
We recently played against Lone Peak and for the tenth time in a row we won! And now, it's time for the State Football Round 4 at the University of Utah, then a championship game the week after.
To hear from the students and their opinion of how the last couple of years have been was a shocking yet a very spirited conversation. Many interviews went down and some people shockingly had low hopes for our team, but many more had a high and strong opinion of our school football team and solely believed that we would win. I spoke to many students about this and one student, discussed that we likely will not win due to our past history, and although that isn't what we want to hear from the student body it is something that some students have expressed with us.
Another group of students stated that considering how much the team has been winning these last couple months they have incredible hope and believe that the team will win it all this season.
Regardless of any of these opinions, the football team has been training often and have been working very hard to win this year, and as this time is very tense for all the players, our student body can only cheer on the team and believe in them to motivate them and continue to move forward with this so far, incredible season.
Finally, let's make sure to be unified and cheer on the team, motivate them, and show them that they are a strong team and they can do it. This is a final goodbye to the football season until the next one next school year, so cheer them on, on friday and the following week after that. GO CHARGERS!
Supporting the team:
Now that the time of playoffs is coming the team is under lots of pressure and really needs the support of the student body. Even doing small things such as being kind to the team and showing support and cheering them on will motivate the team and make them feel the kindness from the students. Supporting the coach as well will be very nice. Dressing up for football games as well will show spirit.
Football: PLAYOFF GAME!
By Will Lewis
On Friday, October 27th, at 4:00 p.m., marked the second round of football. The Corner Canyon Chargers played against the Layton Lancers in the Charger Stadium. Liam Fowler, a sophomore at Corner Canyon stated, “It was a really cold game and I almost didn’t want to go watch the game, but it was the playoffs so I had to be there.” This game was again another blowout. The Chargers again showed why they are the dominant team in the state. They showed the 18th-ranked team no mercy. The final score of the game was 52-0 with the Chargers taking the win. The Chargers momentum during the game was unmatched.
In the first quarter, they scored a total of 21 points, a 13-yard run from Bryton Brady, a 5-yard pass from Isaac Wilson to Boston Snow, and a 60-yard pass from Isaac to Bradyen Eyre. In the second quarter, the Chargers landed an additional 21 points, a 3-yard run by Zion Finau, a 17-yard pass from Isaac Wilson to Tate Kjar, and a 10-yard pass from Isaac Wilson to Bryton Brady. In the third quarter, 10 more points were scored. A 10-yard pass from Isaac Wilson to Crue Wignall and a 23-yard field goal scored by Preston Rasmussen. This made a total of 4 touchdown passes from Isaac Wilson and an additional six different Chargers finding their way into the endzone, with Bryton Brady snagging two of those.
The Chargers defense completely locked off the Lancers. Not a single touchdown was scored by Layton. Kennedy Blackner, a student at Layton said, “Yeah my school is really bad.” After this game, Corner Canyon’s record was 10-1 while Layton’s was 1-10. Hopefully, Layton will have better luck in the next season.
Nate Gibbons, a senior at Corner Canyon says, “The game was a little uneventful. It was honestly too easy for us. I hope we actually have a challenge in the next game.”
Next week the Chargers will play in the quarter-finals against Lone Peak at home @ 4:00 p.m., November 3rd. Lone Peak has a season record of 5-6. See you at the next game!
Football: Corner canyon vs herriman
BY WILL LEWIS
On Friday, October 13th, at 7 p.m., at Charger Stadium, the Corney Canyon Chargers (9-1) went head-to-head against the Herriman Mustangs (5-5). The Corner Canyon student's theme for this game was “USA out.” One student, Brax Kjar says, “It was a pretty cold night, but I'm happy that I still went because I was able to support my school’s team.” Clearly, the Corner Canyon student body is unmatched in school spirit and loyalty.
This game had a higher score for the away team than previous games, but the Chargers still dominated the field. The game's final score was 45-14 with the Chargers securing the win. Both teams played amazingly well.
Corner Canyon set the pace for the game in the first quarter with two touchdowns, carried by Tate Kjar. According to the Deseret News, “Herriman displayed their determination in the second quarter, with a 37-yard field goal from Imaj Hagan, narrowing the score to 17-10 at halftime.” The third quarter of the game is when things ramped up for the Chargers. A total of three touchdowns were scored by the Chargers. One was a 5-yard run by Bryton Brady, one was a 15-yard touchdown run by quarterback Isaac Wilson, and the other was an 18-yard reception by Kash Dillon. Herriman had a touchdown this quarter as well. They had a 42-yard touchdown pass from Frederick Ta’ai to Noah Malloy, however, the Chargers maintained their fiery momentum.
The Chargers secured the lead with a 19-yard touchdown reception by Roman Caywood. In the fourth quarter, Herriman landed yet another touchdown, a 1-yard run by Frederick Ta’ai, however, it was not enough to overpower the Chargers, who secured the game with a score of 45-25. Christian Pettit, another student at Corner Canyon says, “It was a very fun game to watch. The other team didn’t get absolutely destroyed by us so it made the game more eventful. I have way more fun at the games when the teams go back and forth.”
There will not be another football game this Friday due to Fall Break. The next round of football will begin the following Friday, October 27th (which is also the last day of quarter one) at 6 p.m. See you next time!

Why People Should Attend Sports Events.
BY DEANNA ARUTYUNYAN
At Corner Canyon, we are famous for our sports and great community. Our football team at Corner Canyon is known to be one of the most incredible teams; we are ranked #18 nationally and #1 in Utah.
Now, attending sporting events are an incredibly long lasting tradition when you enter high school; people usually go to sports events for the fun atmosphere and great opportunities to make more friends, learn more about different sports, and more.
According to Cheer Coach Whitney Lunt, “I feel like its good to be involved, it builds school spirit. When I went to highschool and attended football sports events, I builded close bonds with people and I still talk to those friends now.”
This wonderful quote for Whitney Lunt shows us that going to games can build close friendships, and that they also builds school spirit and keeps us closely connected to our fellow students.
Specifically, probably the most popular sporting event at Corner Canyon is football, so I spoke to the football coach about why people should attend football games. he told me this: “Its a fun and amazing opportunity to socialize and cheer on football.”
Football games have some wonderful things there, such as a great popsicle stand, the most amazing hot chocolate, spirit wear for sale, the world famous Charger Fries, the fantastic burgers and hot dogs, the great spirit leaders, and the spectacular show of school spirit. Going to the football games is a genuinely exciting experience especially if you go to Corner Canyon.
Another amazing school sport we have here at Corner Canyon is volleyball. Volleyball is a very intense and competitive sport and a very entertaining one to watch.
I had a conversation with the volleyball coach, and we discussed how going to the volleyball events is such a rush to watch. It’s great to show some school spirit for other teams as well.
Attending these marvelous events at Corner will heighten and strengthen your highschool experience and there's no negatives to it.
Going to sporting events at corner will only show your school spirit and give you more opportunities to socialize and have more memorable experiences.
Sports at CCHS!!

Will Lewis and camden trudo showdown!
BY WILL LEWIS
Last weekend, Saturday, September 23rd, at 10:30 P.M, Will Lewis fought against Camden Trudo in a Boxing Match.
Will and Camden are friends and their friend group decided to do a “fight night,” so they decided to box each other for fun. They didn’t have a boxing ring to fight in, so they chose to do it in Ethan Peterson's garage.
Camden weighs 15lbs more than Will and he is much more experienced. So, it's safe to say that Will was at a major disadvantage.
In their fight they decided to do three rounds total, each round lasting around 3 minutes. Will and Camden were the main fight for the night, they were the last match.
Jet Piper and Merrit Aho fought first, then Cale Bjourgard and Ethan Peterson fighting second. Jet Piper and Ethan Peterson were the victors of their matches.
Before the main match, Will and Camden spent 15 minutes warming up and hyping themselves up. Some of the more experienced boxers were giving the two some tips, then it was time to start. The two met each other in the middle of the garage. They touched gloves, and then the match began. Right from the start they started going at it. Exchanging blows, jabbing, and throwing hooks. Headshots and Bodyshots.
“They’re tanking,” Ethan Peterson said in the first round after Will and Camden exchanged a series of right hooks to each other's heads. The three minutes ended and the first round was over.
The two went to their corners to catch their breath and cool down before the next round which would start in two minutes. Austin Squire went over to Will and said, “He’s bigger than you, but you're not doing too bad. Keep parrying his hooks like you have been doing, but instead of only focusing on his head, throw in some body and liver shots.”
The second round was about to begin. The two touched gloves again and the round started. This round was similar to the first. The two continued to exchange blows, but Will used more body shots, like he was told to. Although head shots were still the primary focus because they do more damage.
The last round was the least eventful of the rounds. Will and Camden were extremely tired from the previous rounds. Their punches were slower, their footwork was worse, and they were missing more and more of their punches. After Will missed a series of punches on Camden, Ben Wyman said, “He’s gassed!” Not much else happened in the last round.
The round ended and Camden was announced the winner, because he had more hits landed than Will.
