The start of Utah's high school football season is just a little over three weeks away. The Utah High School Activities Association's Jeff Cluff, who assigns officials to games, was kind enough to share the first week's schedule and there are some interesting matchups that include all six defending state champions.
The season kicks off on August 21 when Class 1A power Duchesne, which has won four straight state titles and owns a 47-game winning streak, travels to Class 2A Layton Christian for a 3 p.m. Thursday game. This is a great venue to open the season. Layton Christian's field is located in a natural bowl and is one of the state's prettiest stadiums.
The rest of the state opens play the next day.
