Matt Pugh, Brennen Hyatt, and Chris Clark, varsity players at Maple Mountain high school commented on their work ethic, teamwork, and learning experiences. They also stated their opinion about what they like about being on the new football team here at our new school.

Matt Pugh said, “We all get along very well coming from so many different schools. The team is learning to work together. It is exciting for us to set new traditions.” Matt plays center and has been playing football since 7th grade.

Brennen Hyatt said “It’s fun to make a lot of new friends and starting new traditions, but we need to learn to work together as a team and practice more.” Brennen is a senior at MMHS and has been playing since 9th grade but continued playing the sport this year as a senior playing defense corner (defensive back) and offense slot back.

Chris Clark said, “It’s a good opportunity to be able to start a new tradition at a new school, I really enjoy playing with new kids from different schools.” Chris plays wide receiver and defensive end; he’s been playing since 6th grade.

Our team is young, mostly composed of sophomores, but they have been working hard for months before school started. Good luck Golden Eagles football!
