A successful high school football season for Tooele County’s three teams featured exciting playoff runs and thrilling action on the field.
The Grantsville Cowboys advanced to their first state semifinal since 2005, and enjoyed their first 10-win season since 1998. A high-flying passing attack and a dominant defense had the Cowboys among the top teams in Class 3A throughout the entire season.
The Stansbury Stallions, whose defense stifled the run while their offense thrived on it, advanced to the quarterfinals in Class 4A after finishing second in Region 10. A good mix of seniors and underclassmen propelled Stansbury to its eighth winning season in a row.
The Tooele Buffaloes went through some growing pains, but still had enough success to earn a first-round bye in the Class 4A playoffs. While the Buffs’ win-loss record wasn’t what they hoped for, there is plenty of optimism for the future.
