Mission Hills High School opened their football field up for the first time this year against the Utah based Desert Hills High School. Tonight the standout players from Mission Hills played a game that did not disappoint. Seniors Jack Tuttle (QB), Sam Dixon (RB/LB) and Chris Olave (WR/DB) can talk the talk, and after tonight’s game they’ve proven they can walk the walk.
At the beginning of the 1st quarter Maurice Jones (WR/DB) completed a 21yd touchdown pass by Jack Tuttle. Within 5 minutes, Jack Tuttle hands off the ball to teammate Damon Wigand who completes an impressive 57 yd. touchdown. By the end of the first quarter Tuttle once again makes a strong 16 yard pass to Jones in the end zone, where yet another touchdown is complete. The Grizzlies end the 1st quarter with a strong 21-0 lead.
In the 2nd quarter Desert Hills Noah Sewell was greeted by two Grizzly sacks. Isaac Anderson (OL/DL) claimed the first while Ryan Barraza (RB/LB) and Logan Mundt (OL) tag team for the second. Dynamic duo Jack Tuttle and Chris Olave looked ready to work some magic in the end zone. Before the end of the 2nd Olave racked up a 16yd and 19yd touchdown. The Grizzlies finish their first half still leading the way 35-0.
As the game progresses into the second half, Jack Tuttle throws yet another pass to teammate Chris Olave. Olave completes the 40yd pass in the end zone, touchdown Grizzlies. With 6 minutes left in the 4th, a very scrappy, very determined Noah Sewell completes a 1yd-rushing touchdown.
With an efficient offense and aggressive defense the Grizzlies walked away from the Friday night-lights with a 42-7 victory. They are now (2-0).

PREVIEW: Another week, another high school football game to preview. This week the Desert Hills Thunder makes their way to Mission Hills High School from St. George Utah. These out of towners are currently 1-1 in their preseason record and hold a great deal of talent expected to make their fall 2017 debuts.
The Desert Hill Thunder welcomes back head coach, Carl Franke for his 6th consecutive season. Two players to keep your eyes on from Desert Hills are sophomore, Noah Sewell (OLB/MLB/RB) and senior, Brock Parry (RB/FS). Both of these players hold impressive stats. In just two pre-season games, Sewall holds 358 passing yards and 7 touchdowns. His stats showcase tremendous potential for not only the fall, but his high school career as a whole. Seasoned athlete Brock Parry is a double varsity athlete in football and soccer. His rushing yards in preseason can attest to his speed on the soccer field. With 208 rushing yards, 1 rush touchdown and 4 touchdowns, Parry will likely put the cherry on top of what is remaining in his high school career.
Seasoned with a history of success and a pure love of the game, the Mission Hills Grizzlies welcome their first and only head coach since the school opened in 2004, Chris Hauser. Entering his 13th season, Hauser leads a team filled with star prospects and college bound players. Three guys to keep an eye out for are seniors Jack Tuttle (QB), Chris Olave (WR/CB) and Samuel Dixon (RB). Olave is a 3-star receiver who also plays for Mission Hills Basketball team. Quarterback Jack Tuttle a 4-star Utah commit was mentioned as one of MaxPreps “Elite 11 Quarterbacks in 2017”. Samuel Dixon a Naval Academy commit has a need for speed. His legs are a essential part when running routes to complete his plays.
