High school football: Felt's Facts Week 6 (21 items)
Note: This week’s highlights include some of the top single-game performances for the 2013 season. Also included are more comprehensive lists than appeared last week of all-time single-game passing records for 94 schools and rushing records for 101.
Milford and Rich both compete in four-team Class 1A North. Last week, when Milford played at Rich, it marked the Tigers’ final region game, while the Rebels played their first. Meanwhile, Regions 2 and 3 finally commence league competition this week.
Although the playoffs are weeks away, remember that in the 5A tournament, Region 1 meets Region 4 and Region 2 plays Region 3 in the first round. In 4A, it’s Region 5 vs. Region 6 and Region 7 vs. Region 8. In the other classifications, it’s simply North vs. South.

1 of 21. Undefeated and Winless
There’s just a single possible meeting between undefeated teams during the rest of the regular season: Brighton at Bingham in two weeks if the Bengals get past Alta and the Miners defeat West Jordan.
And there’s only one potential contest between winless teams: Monument Valley at Whitehorse during Week 10. However, with games against out-of-state Navajo Nation teams, both Utah schools have a good chance of picking up a victory before they meet.
2 of 21. 5-0 Starts
As a recap, other schools that haven’t been 5-0 for at least three seasons: Bingham (13-0 in 2010), Davis (started 7-0 in 2010), Grantsville (8-0 in 1992), Pleasant Grove (7-0 in 2009), Richfield (6-0 in 2010) and South Summit (5-0 in 2009).
Speaking of South Summit, the Wildcats have won their first five games several times in their 76 seasons. But their best-ever start was 6-0 in 1951 with victories over Wasatch, Morgan, Murray, Judge, Park City and North Summit. SS then lost to Tooele, ending its season with a 6-1 region record as every contest was also a league game.
Desert Hills, of course, enjoys its best-ever start.
3 of 21. Turnarounds
4 of 21. Shutouts
Grantsville has posted three shutouts in five games, the most for the Cowboys since 2000 when they whitewashed four during the season. Duchesne has also held three opponents scoreless and allowed just a touchdown to each of the other two.
5 of 21. More Duchesne
From Week 6 of 2007 until two weeks ago, no player had returned two punts for touchdowns in the same game. Now there are two in one season. Duchesne’s Matt Muir raced 90 and 55 yards in the Eagles’ 48-0 demolition of Grantsville JV. He joins Pleasant Grove’s Spencer Romney who accomplished the feat two weeks ago. Incidentally, the 2007 player, Tyler Reinhardt, also competed for Duchesne. Or maybe they’re one of the only schools that report such achievements.
