The rivalry between the Alta High School Hawks and the Corner Canyon Chargers is a relatively young one. Going into its fourth year, Corner Canyon hopes to continue to prove that it is more than a split off from Alta High School. After last season’s 38-21 victory over the Hawks, the Chargers look to continue their current undefeated season and maintain their #1 state ranking. While both rosters have depth thanks to future collegiate talent, don’t sleep on the Hawks, who bring in several future DI athletes who have committed to big name schools like Washington and Idaho State.
Despite the age of this rivalry, the communities of Draper and Sandy, UT come out to cheer for their hometown team with the promise of a year of bragging rights to the champions. Look for MJ Tafisi (Alta), Tu’u Afu (Alta), Zach Engstrom (Alta), Zachary Wilson (Corner Canon), Mikey Petty (Corner Canyon), and Easton Peterson (Corner Canyon) to be playmakers throughout the game on Friday night.

Josh is an outstanding example of Alta Hawk’s history.

In his senior year alone, he rushed 2,645 yards putting him at 8,327 yards for his high school career. His speed made him a lead competitor on both the track and the field. Eventually his talents and hard work landed him at Weber State where he has been driving force from start. He was named, only last month, National Freshmen of the Week.
This one was all Corner Canyon from the start. The state's #1 ranked team looked unstoppable in this game, defeating the Alta Hawks by a final score of 49-21. The win builds on last season's win over the Hawks 38-21 and cements Corner Canyon as a force in the state of Utah this season.
