Northridge basketball: Chad Sims profile

In mid-October, I interviewed Northridge (Utah) boys basketball coach Chad Sims. I'm helping Northridge with its game program this season, which will be available at all Northridge home games this season. Here is the article about coach Sims that will appear in the program.

Head Coach Chad Sims:
Second-year man won region last year
and has come far from his Clearfield roots
By Bruce Smith
            Last year’s victory by the Northridge Knights over the Weber Warriors was more than just a game for coach Chad Sims.
            The win was also a championship. It was the first region title for Northridge since 2002 and a big change for a team that had just three victories the year before. For Sims, being able to cut down the nets in his first season here was a huge step.
            “That has to be my coaching highlight,” Sims said. “To win it here was just really special. It was a great night and I’ll never forget it.”
            There had been a lot of changes in the previous year and Sims felt he had to convince the non-believers. He was named head varsity basketball coach in May 2011, coming over from Davis and replacing Bryan Veazie. 
            Northridge’s administration was looking for a way to resurrect the basketball program, and the selection of Sims seemed like an easy transition. He grew up in northern Utah, was familiar with Region 1 basketball and had an impressive sports background.
            The oldest of four children, Sims grew up in Syracuse, an area that was far more rural than it is now. At Clearfield High, he was a three-sport athlete. In football, he played running back and linebacker, anchoring the Falcons’ defense that shut out Davis and Bonneville in its final two games in 1992 to win the 4A title.
            He called that feat his greatest sports memory. That year, Sims was one of seven Clearfield players to be named to the Deseret News’all-state team.
            Clearfield coach Randy Johnson’s squad finished 11-2. Johnson described Sims this way:
            He always found a way to win.”
            Wins didn’t come as often at Weber, where he spent seven years. However, in that time, the Warriors were competitive in Region 1, made the state tournament twice, and one year upset heavily favored Alta to advance to the second round.
            For much of his life, the 37 year-old coach has been a staple in northern Utah sports. At Clearfield, he was busy playing sports all year. After football, he helped lead the basketball team to the 4A semifinals, and then joined the boys soccer team.
            “It was a great sports year for us at Clearfield,” Sims recalled. Ironically, that was also the year Northridge opened.
            After graduation, spent a year playing football at Snow College and then went to Argentina on his LDS Church mission. When he returned, he enrolled at Weber State and walked on to play basketball. He also met his wife, Jodi.
            “I played for coach Ron Abegglen,” he recalled. “I didn’t play much, but I learned a lot from him. I had some really good (coaching) influences growing up. I always knew I wanted to go into coaching.”
            Sims got his first job back at Clearfield. He took the Weber position and also spent time assisting Davis coach Jay Welk, who is easily the “dean” of Region 1.
            In a sense, Sims has come a full circle. Has anything changed?
            “There is a lot more skill now in basketball because kids put a lot more time into it,” he said. “The game is also more physical than it has ever been.”
            Sims has also changed. He has more basketball experience and a family. The Sims clan includes five children: Braden (14), Tanner (11), Colby (8), Hadley (4) and Tyler (1).

Skyline basketball: Derek Bunting profile

In mid-October, I interviewed Skyline (Utah) boys basketball coach Derek Bunting. I'm writing his bio for the Skyline 2012-13 boys basketball program, which will be available for sale at all Skyline home basketball games later this year. Here is the article for the program.

Skyline Coach Derek Bunting:

 Fifth-year mentor has Skyline playing
a rare, but proven, basketball style

By Bruce Smith

             In the mid-1980s, Derek Bunting walked on to play basketball at the Ivy League’s Dartmouth College.
            For a while, the coach couldn’t remember his name, but recognized that he was excited to play. When Bunting graduated in 1988, the school created an award for him, naming it after John Dilorio (a similar-style player in the 1950s) Award for “hustle, drive and determination.”
            Now, almost a quarter-century later, Bunting’s attitude is being passed on to the basketball players at Skyline High School.
            "The kids look at their need to step up as an opportunity," said the 46 year-old Bunting. "Our teams are balanced and unselfish, and if we maintain our consistency, we will be pretty good."
            Bunting has come a long way. He grew up near Manchester, N.H., played basketball there and went on to be part of coach Paul Cormier’s Dartmouth teams in the late 1980s. He wasn’t a standout player, but became known for his “court smarts.” It was the experience he gained there, as well as the team’s opponents, that still affect him today.
            “We played against Princeton and their offense, and it was the most difficult team to prepare,” he said.
            Princeton was coached by Pete Carril, and employed what it known as the “Princeton offense.” Dartmouth had a good, sharp-shooting team back then, but still couldn’t beat them. Later, Princeton drew heavily favored Georgetown in the NCAA Tournament’s first round and lost just 50-49.
            The game drew national attention, and so did Carril’s playing style. Bunting has spent countless hours since then studying it.
            “I’ll never forget it,” Bunting said. “We had more talent, but that offense was difficult to defend. They took good shots, played great ‘help’ defense, dictated the tempo and stayed in games.
            “The offense requires that every player be able to dribble, pass and shoot. We have to be able to move our kids around and utilize space. We have so much flexibility.”
            Bunting earned an English degree at Dartmouth and followed it with a Masters in Education at Stanford. He taught and/or coached in Hawaii, Maine and Massachusetts before coming to Utah, where he first accepted a job at Rowland Hall-St. Mark’s School. In his fourth (and final) season there, the team finished 15-6 and advanced further in the 2A state tournament than any time in school history.
            Skyline recognized him for his exemplary teaching schools, as well as his coaching success, and now every Eagle opponent has to be ready for what is known here as “Bunting Ball.”
            In four seasons, Bunting’s record has been 55-32 (.638). That’s second-best in Skyline’s 50-year history. Only Neil Roberts, who won two state championships here in the 1970s, has fared better.
            “It’s the style of play … not me,” Bunting said, smiling. “It works well for us because history has shown that we don’t have a lot of size but we do get intelligent kids who know the fundamentals. If they don’t, there will be trouble. But it’s something we can teach them.”
            Bunting replaced Paul Jeppesen in 2006 and, after an 8-11 record, hasn’t had a losing season. In 2008-09, the Eagles got local attention for winning their first 11 games en route to an 18-4 season. That year, their tallest player was 6-foot-4.
            Bunting resigned shortly afterward for personal reasons and moved to Portland, Ore. and then back to the Boston area. Last year, he returned and Skyline administrators were happy to grab him.
            Bunting was also happy to be back. This time, he is married (Cynthia, a physician) and anxious to see if Skyline basketball can have as much success as the school’s storied football program.
            “Not sure if we can do that, but we’ll certainly try. The football team has shown what it can do with the same type of athletes. We try to create a chemistry and the kids take it from there.”

Prep football: Felila makes his move

On Oct. 17, I covered the Kearns-Granger high school football game for the Deseret News. Here is the article that was published in the newspaper the next day.

By Bruce Smith
For the Deseret News

                KEARNS – James Felila may not be so well known outside of Region 2, but his senior season has been … well … unforgettable to many others.
                Felila put the finishing touches on Kearns’ impressive regular season, rushing for 277 yards and five touchdowns as the Cougars beat Granger 49-34 Wednesday to secure the school’s first postseason home game in almost 20 years.
                “It’s what we wanted … right from the start of the season,” said Kearns coach Bill Cosper, whose team is scheduled to play the winner of next Tuesday’s Layton-Davis winner. “We played really well up front. I told the kids the way they were playing, they could be the best line in the state.”
                The Cougars shook off a 1-4 start to win four of their last five games. A 22-21 loss to Hunter prevented them from the region crown. Helped by Felila, who has six 200-yard games this season, they dominated their other region opponents.
                With a lot on the line Wednesday, Felila broke the school record for most touchdowns in a game, and then added the school’s single-season and career rushing marks to his resume. Cosper said he’s a sure-bet to make the all-region team, and he’s more than happy to promote him for all-state.
                “I promote my kids for all-state every year,” he said. “If he doesn’t make it, it’s a travesty.”
                Felila had plenty of help. Kearns’ line play – on offense and defense – dominated the Lancers. The Cougars had 656 yards total offense. Quarterback Jordan Floyd also had a great night, connecting on 15 of 24 passes for 282 yards.
                “Bottom line is we didn’t get enough stops,” said Hunter coach Cecil Thomas, whose team could have played host to a first-round game with a win. After a 4-0 start, the Lancers are 7-3 and will travel to Northridge for a first-round game.
                “It’s been a good season … so far,” Thomas added. “But there’s still a lot of football left. This team isn’t done.”
                Granger never gave up on this night. The Lancers’ star back, Tani Lehauli, couldn’t find much running room, but quarterback Alex Tuinei had a lot of success throwing the ball. He had nearly 200 yards passing and three touchdowns in the first half alone as the Lancers stayed within 28-21.
                The second half had a lot more defense. Tuinei missed on his first seven attempts after halftime and Hunter’s running game still couldn’t find much room, netting just 131 yards overall. It wasn’t until Kearns’ Hetu Mataele returned a fumble 12 yards for a touchdown in the game’s final minutes that the outcome was decided.

Prep football: Oly downs Skyline again

On Oct. 12, I covered the traditional rivalry game between Skyline and Olympus. This is one of my favorite matchups. The schools are only a couple miles apart and both teams know each other well. This year, it was played on Oly's beautiful field, but it in a driving rain. Here is the article that I wrote and will also appear in both team's yearbooks.

By Bruce Smith
For the Deseret News

                The annual “Battle of the Rock” got a little soggy Friday night, but the Olympus Titans didn’t care.
                Corbin Anderson ran for two touchdowns and passed for two more and the Titan defense shut down Skyline in the second half, lifting Olympus to a 27-9 win and forcing a three-way tie for first place in Region 7.
                “Wasn’t that great … how we came out in the second half?” said Olympus coach Aaron Whitehead. “We started out slow, but we’re peaking at the right time. Great win.”
                Afterward, the Titans celebrated on their still-new field as heavy rains fell. It was a great football atmosphere between two neighborhood rivals. While construction continues on the new Olympus High School nearby, crews managed to finish the stadium’s west side stands in time for Friday’s game and it successfully handled the big crowd from both schools.
                Jake Jones rushed for 113 yards on 22 carries. However, the biggest play he made came early in the fourth quarter. Leading 14-9, Oly faced 1st-and-goal from Skyline’s 1-yard line. Anderson took the ball forward on a quarterback sneak, but dropped the football. It lay still for a split second near the goal line while the huge crowd roared.
                Jones leaped forward and cradled it to keep the drive going. Anderson scored on the next play.
                “They got all the breaks,” said Skyline quarterback Tyler Snyder. “We didn’t play like we’re capable. Now we’ve got to regroup and get ready for the playoffs.”
                With the region season over, Olympus, Skyline and Herriman (a 55-7 winner over Westlake Friday) each finished on top with 4-1 records. A coin flip Monday will determine seeding for the 4A state playoffs, which begin Oct. 26.
                Skyline had a chance to end a three-game losing streak to the Titans, regain the rivalry’s keepsake and sew up the region with a victory. Snyder led the Eagles right down the field on their opening drive, and then Skyline took advantage of a turnover deep in Oly territory to claim a 9-0 lead on Stuart Barrett’s 30-yard field goal.
                But the Eagles’ offense was stymied after that. Playmaker Garrett England made a few big plays on kick returns, but also had a few blunders, including intentionally kicking the ball on an Oly fumble that allowed the Titans to keep the ball and add 15 yards because of the penalty.
                Skyline also blocked one punt, and got a hand on another, but couldn’t turn either into points. The Titans’ defense stuffed Skyline’s running game, and limited the Eagles to just two first downs after halftime.
                Anderson completed 7 of 11 passes for 69 yards and had scoring throws to Nate Goldsberry and Tate Benson. He also ran for 48 yards. Anderson’s 15-yard pass to Benson put the game away.

Girls soccer: Skyline nips Timpanogos

On Thursday, Oct. 11, the Deseret News asked me to cover the Skyline-Timpanogos girls soccer game. This was a rematch of last year's 4A state championship. Afterward, my 12 year-old daughter (and soccer enthusiast) got to meet Skyline's top player, Ashley Aberton. It was a great game, but the highlight was seeming my daughter's eyes after she hugged her hero.

By Bruce Smith
For the Deseret News

             For most of the season, Skyline has relied on the speed of Ashley Aberton and Jaslyn Masina - and the offense they created.
            Thursday afternoon, the Eagles needed some defensive help.
            Aberton scored the game’s only goal with a perfectly-placed corner kick and goalkeeper Ali Spencer saved it time and time again as Skyline downed Timpanogos 1-0 and sent the defending champions home in a 4A girls soccer tournament quarterfinal.
            “I reminded my players they were Timpanogos,” said Skyline coach Yamil Castillo. “They were the defending champions and they wouldn’t go down easily.”
            That certainly proved true. The Timberwolves, a soccer power who also won the 4A title in 2009 and had reached the title contest in each of the last three seasons, gave up Aberton’s goal in the first five minutes. Despite a huge effort, they were never able to recover.
            “This is literally the first time these kids haven’t been in the championship game,” said Timpanogos coach Natalyn Lewis. “You can’t ever really enjoy what it takes, but watch out for us next year.”
            Amanda Marshall, Katie Henderson and Madison Moreno each had multiple chances to put the ball into the net, but Spencer came up with a big stop each time. On one play, a hard shot bounced just off Spencer’s fingertips in front of the goal. The play seemed to move in slow motion, but she managed to retrieve it.
            “It was a big play,” Spencer said. “I didn’t feel comfortable until I had it safely back in my hands.”
            “Those last 10 minutes were the longest 10 minutes of my career,” added Castillo.
            Afterward, Skyline celebrated, but it was difficult for the Timberwolves to leave the field. They finished with an 11-4-3 record, but it was a late-season loss to eventual Region 7 champ Maple Mountain that forced them into a No. 2 seed and a second-round matchup against the Eagles.
            Timpanogos, of course, defeated Skyline 1-0 in last year’s championship game. In many ways this game duplicated that contest, except it went the other way.
            “We have a lot of players who remember how it felt to walk off that field last year,” said Spencer. “We knew it wasn’t going to be easy, and it’s not going to any easier from here.”
            Skyline improved to 15-1-2. The Eagles haven’t lost since their opener against Davis. They moved to the semifinals, where they will play Bountiful at 6 p.m. at Juan Diego Catholic High School. Bonneville will meet Woods Cross in the other game.

Girls soccer: Brighton holds off Riverton

On Tuesday, Oct. 9, I was asked by the Deseret News to cover the Brighton-Riverton girls soccer game. This was a state tournament game and was a great effort by both teams on a beautiful afternoon. Here is the article that appeared in the D-News, and will also be published in Brighton's girls soccer yearbook.

By Bruce Smith
For the Deseret News

             There were eight 5A girls state soccer tournament games Tuesday afternoon, but few games had both teams looking forward to a contest like Brighton and Riverton.
            Almost two months ago, the Bengals routed the Silverwolves 6-0. Riverton was eager for a rematch. Brighton? The Bengals wanted to make up for a first-round tournament exit last year.
            Mati Long and Stephanie Ringwood scored goals and goalkeepers Carli Olson and Tamaryn Braun teamed up for another shutout victory as Brighton advanced to the second round of the 5A tourney with a 2-0 victory at Albion Middle School.
            If coaches counted moral victories, this would have been possible for both.
            “They came out with fire in their eyes,” said Brighton coach Mark Stoker of the Silverwolves. “The tournament is different. Everyone knows it’s win or go home.”
            Brighton advanced to the second round, and will play at Davis Thursday. The Darts whipped Hunter 14-0 in another first-round contest.
            The Bengals’ only losses this season came to top-ranked Alta. The players won’t admit it, but they are hoping for another shot at the Hawks, and that can only take place in the championship game Oct. 19 at Rio Tinto Stadium.
            “Our focus is on 40-minute halves,” Stoker said.
            The Bengals were particularly pleased when Long’s 17th goal of the season found the net. It came only seconds before halftime in what had been an evenly matched contest. Long took a nice pass from a teammate and got the kick past Riverton goalie Pume Currie, who had several big saves up to that point.
            “She (Currie) kept us in the game,” said Riverton coach Paul Moizer. “She had three or four really good saves.”
            The second half was a different story.
            “We spent a lot of time chasing the ball,” said Moizer. “They (the Bengals) controlled the ball most of the time, and they always seemed to have an extra man in the middle.”
            That left Currie busier. Several Brighton shots went over the net and one caromed off the post. Finally, Ringwood’s score gave Brighton a cushion and the Bengals were never threatened afterward.
            It wasn’t 6-0, but it was still a victory and got the first-round jinx off their back. Riverton ended its season with a 9-7 record.

Brighton holds off West Jordan

On Oct. 5, I covered the West Jordan at Brighton high school football game. It was a cool night and it ended up being a great game. Here is the article I wrote that will appear in the Deseret News, and eventually in the Brighton 2012 football yearbook. There are statistics at the bottom.

By Bruce Smith
For the Deseret News

             Uaea Masina reverted to an old Little League football trick to keep the Brighton Bengals in contention for the 5A playoffs.
            Early in the third quarter, Masina ripped the ball away from the West Jordan running back near the end of a nice run. He ran it back to set up a touchdown that lifted Brighton to a tough 20-14 Region 3 win Friday over the Jaguars.
            “All game long, they (the Jaguars) kept running away from me and my brother (Osa Masina),” he said. “I don’t think he saw me and I just ripped it away. I did that a lot in Little League.”
            The “fumble” led to a 2-yard run by Masina that extended Brighton’s 10-7 halftime lead. The Bengals eventually took a 20-7 advantage and that proved important as West Jordan rallied and almost ruined Brighton’s “Senior Night” activities.
            “That’s a good team,” Brighton coach Ryan Bullett said of the Jaguars. “They came in 2-0 and we were 0-2 (in region). They knew that if they win this, they’re in the playoffs. They played Bingham and Hurricane and those guys didn’t score much on them. They play tough.”
            In the end, though, Brighton ended up being the tougher team. Masina rushed 20 times for 84 yards and scored twice on offense. Freshman quarterback Drew Jensen added 79 yards on 11 carries and completed 4 of 6 passes for 115 yards.
            “We never had the feeling that we were going to lose this game,” Masina said. “The last two weeks, we lost the fourth quarter and we didn’t want to see that happen tonight.”
            What saved the Bengals is they didn’t commit a turnover and improved their record to 6-2 overall and 1-2 in region. With two games remaining – at Jordan and then Copper Hills – Brighton must win at least one game to reach the playoffs, then the Bengals can worry about the first-round matchup from a representative from Region 4.
            West Jordan dropped to 2-5 overall, but still 2-1 in region. The Jaguars still have a good chance to make the postseason, but finish the year against powers Alta and Jordan.
            Bullett acknowledged that Masina’s defensive play was the difference-maker. Later, the Bengals extended the margin on a 22-yard field by goal by Hunter Dall, his second of the night.
            Those plays were important because the Jaguars rallied behind the hard-nosed running of Kaden Maddox, who had 51 yards on 13 carries, and a well-executed on-sides kick by Brandon Naylor. The recovery had had Brighton fans on edge until Brady McCloyn broke up a pair of passes by Jags quarterback Colton Michaelsen.
            West Jordan had just 190 total yards, but seemed to make the most of them. The Jags also were hurt when they failed twice to score deep in Brighton territory. In the first quarter, they were stopped on downs at the Bengal 3-yard line, and then Alec McArdle ended another drive with a one-handed interception in the end zone.

Mtn. View 48, Boise 28

On Sept. 28, I drove to Boise and covered the Mountain View-Boise football game. It was the Mavericks' homecoming and drew a good crowd. It was my first MV home game and I really enjoyed. Afterward, I spoke to both coaches. It felt good to see them at midseason and assure them that I will be producing a quality yearbook for them afterward.

Mavs give fans a homecoming win

By Bruce Smith

            Coach Judd Benedick has a theory. Whenever Josh Buss handles the football, good things happen.
            On Friday night, several other players proved the same thing. Buss, Kai Turner and Connor Armstrong all had big games as Mountain View accumulated 552 yards and went on to handle Boise 48-28 in its homecoming game.
            “You’re supposed to win your homecoming, aren’t you?” said Mavericks coach Judd Benedick afterward. “Some games we play lights out. Other times, we’re not the same team. We’d like to put two in a row together.”
            One week after losing 35-21 at Borah, the Mavericks looked like they couldn’t be stopped. Turner threw for 358 yards and three touchdowns, Buss was a double threat running and receiving and Armstrong had nine catches for 98 yards.
            Bottom line: Boise had trouble stopping the Mavericks. Braves coach Bob Clark said his team had its chances, too. After two straight wins, Boise has dropped three in a row and its future is uncertain.
            “We couldn’t stop the short pass,” Clark said. “That took (linebacker) Brett Walton out of the game. If just a few plays go differently, this would have been a different game.”
            One of the biggest plays came late in the second quarter. After taking over the ball on their own 26, Turner engineered a 14-play drive. The Mavericks moved the ball to Boise’s 1, but were stopped on three straight plays.
            Benedick called timeout while facing fourth down. Mountain View declined to try the chip-shot field goal and Turner scored on a quarterback sneak.
            “We thought about it, but figured we should be able to make it,” Benedick said.
            The Mavs came back on to the field. Turner lined up in the “Maverick” (pistol) formation with an empty backfield to spread the defense. Just before the snap, he got behind the center and bulled into the end zone for a 22-7 lead.
            “That was a big play,” Benedick said. “It could have gone either way, but it made me look like a hero.”
            Boise rallied. Clark said the Braves “picked up the pace” in the second half. That was noticeable immediately as quarterback Tanner Gustavsen connected with Deion Hardy and Skyler Rowe a few times before hitting Cameron Mayne with a 36-yard scoring pass.
            Gustavsen threw for 228 yards – with no interceptions – and ran for a touchdown. Clark praised his senior leader, as well as Walton, for never giving up. The Braves’ offense ran 89 plays and accumulated 458 yards.
            But they also were guilty of 14 penalties and the only times they really stopped Mountain View was when J.B. Durham and Rowe came up with interceptions.
            Turner didn’t let his first two picks get him down. Mountain View answered Boise’s third-quarter threat when Turner ran for his third touchdown, and then Buss got into the action. He had almost all of his rushing yards, and both touchdowns, in the second half.
