On Monday, in the biting afternoon cold at Wright-Tree Stadium, the Wasps returned to the practice field after a much-needed four day break.
“They better be ready to get back,” joked head coach, Steve Coburn. “They haven’t had to listen to me for four days, so that out to help them.”
Coburn was referring to the opportunity to rest his warriors after a mid-week game last week at Spanish Fork. The game was a tiring, emotional defeat and set the stage for the short rest period.
With Timpview High, the leading team in Region 8, coming to Heber with its highly touted superstars, Coburn stressed the belief he has in his guys.
“Everyone will tell you that you don’t have a chance,” Coburn pronounced sternly to his team after practice. “But I don’t believe that, and neither do you. I don’t care who they have and where he’s going to play college. They’ve got to come here and play us first. Today was a good practice. But tomorrow has to be better.”
The game against the Thunderbirds is the final region contest for Wasatch this fall and the last game at home. A week from Friday, the Wasps travel to American Fork where they will face the 5A Cavemen to finish out the season.
