Back-to-back champs! Dutch Fork runs to 5A state title

Looks like I’ll be honoring Coach Knotts and his team again in the State House Chamber in the coming weeks! Congratulations on a FANTASTIC FINISH!


Dutch Fork repeated at Class 5A champion in dramatic fashion.

Senior linebacker Hugh Ryan tackled Dorman’s John Gelotte at the 1-yard line on a game-deciding 2-point conversion attempt to give Dutch Fork a 28-27 victory Saturday at Williams-Brice Stadium.

“Well, 5A has been in existence two years and we’re the champions. The climb to the top of the hill is hard, but staying there is harder,” Dutch Fork coach Tom Knotts said. “That’s going to be our motto, and we’re going to stick with it.”
