SALT LAKE CITY — Check back here for the latest scores from all the Week 2 high school football games across the state.
Game of the Week: Weber at American Fork
Why did we choose this game?
For the last few years, Weber has been an up-and-coming program in Region 1 and are the favorites to win the division. But their path is daunting as it faces one of the toughest schedules before region play in September. The Warriors found themselves on the opposite end of a 20-point deficit against Bingham in Week 1, and it doesn't get any easier in Week 2.
Weber dropped one spot to No. 12 in this week's KSL.com Top 20+1 poll but are still one of the top teams in the state. The problem is they're running up against the No. 2 team in the state in American Fork, who dropped 60 points on Granger last week. Oh, and the Cavemen held Granger to no points.
Check out Boise State commit Maddux Madsen, who has been picking apart teams for the last few years. Last week, the senior signal caller threw five touchdowns on 19 passing attempts and had an 84.2% passing accuracy. Can Weber's defense hold him more than Granger? That's what makes this game worth watching.
