I am proud to say that our Trojans have been playing like true warriors this year! Last week’s game was hands down amazing with a win to Ogden Tigers at 34 to 0, it qualified them for the Region playoff’s! It is stuff like this that makes me proud to be part of this school, and also brings school spirit and unity! I have come to know most of these boys and WOW! These guys are amazing! They know what it means to be a team, to have each other’s backs, and to be brothers.
Have you ever felt like that you are incapable of doing something? As if you aren’t strong enough or others will think less of you if you can’t do it? I can relate. Doubting yourself is second-guessing yourself, which will bring you down. I used to think that a lot of things were out of my reach or were out of my league.

Everyone in Morgan County knows Steph’s by their delicious food and satisfying Tangees. But how many of us know the history of Steph’s and how it came to be? Steph’s is a family run business down to its third generation now currently ran by J.R. Hopkins.
For the first time this season, our freshmen football team brought home a win! The offensive team was fantastic, and that defense sure did put up a fight! I have never seen so much yellow on that field, but our boys pulled through. Way to go Freshmen Trojans!
Our Trojans have done it again! Gaining another win from the Wasatch Wasps. With a win of 34 to 10. Being able to participate in our school sports is always a rush, especially when the Trojans display teamwork and dedication to their passion. The offensive line gave a lesson on creating holes to bring home this victory. The speed of #4 Joe Kippen, combined with the power of #34 Bridger Anderson and #11 Jose Patino created a hole that the Wasps couldn’t climb out of. Once again Morgan showed this on Friday as the offensive line created holes for 4, 34, and 11 and through the crushing run through tackles of #77 Davey Glover and #41 Boston Saunders.
Bailey Jo Pfannerstill moved to Morgan from Salt Lake County. She lived in Riverton and Herriman before moving to Croydon four years ago. She has a passion for writing stories, drawing pictures, and watching football with her family and friends, and learning in general. During her spare time she can be found working on stories, reading books, studying for college, playing a few video games, listening to music, drawing or spending time with her family. Her family raises Pomeranians and she has shown them in the AKC Jr. Dog Show Handling competitions, where she won 10th place in the nation. Bailey isn’t your average girl. She likes to hunt, fish, go four-wheeling, watch and play football, play golf, and most things outdoors. Her favorite NFL team is the Green Bay Packers (Go Pack Go!). She plans to go to college for Journalism and would like to write a series one day. She loves her internship at The Morgan County News where she will write about the football games and other things along the way, and hopes to excel in it.
Not only did Morgan bring home another nail biting win, they showed what it really means to not only be a team, but a band of brothers. Number 71 Landon Carter was represented by the team at the South Summit game last Thursday. Carter went in for heart surgery the same time the Morgan Trojans would be playing the South Summit Wild Cats.
