I have heard that my son Stephen's Football team's game (Westlake vs
Timpview) will be broadcast live on KJZZ (K-Jazz) Oct 1, 2010 at 7pm.
If you have nothing to do next Friday and you have KJZZ (channel 14 in
the Salt Lake city area), you could watch him play.
Westlake is a new high school that just opened last year. However this
year, their team is undefeated (6-0) and ranked either 3 or 4 in the
Utah in the 4A division. They will be playing defending state champion
Timpview High school. Timpview has won the past 4 state championships in
the 4A division.
Westlake is now the 3rd highest scoring offense in the state behind
Bingham and Springville. Westlake as 2 great coaches, including Jason
Walker, former assistant coach at Timpview, and Tyler Anderson who was a
standout player at BYU. Westlake as a phenomenal quarterback, John
Ursua, who has already been offered scholarships at top Division 1
colleges. Westlake uses a "wide open", "run and gun", quarterback option
style of offense that is fun to watch and hard to defend.
Stephen, who is an exceptional soccer player, has never played football
before 3 weeks ago. He was recruited by the Westlake football coach
because their field goal and extra point kicking had been inconsistent.
Stephen has now made 12 consecutive extra points without a miss. He is
also consistently kicking kick-offs into the end zone. Stephen is a
sophomore but has quickly been recognized as one of the best football
kickers in the state.
