MHS Featured Football Player of the Week Brody Hubbard, Senior Wide Receiver, Defensive End, Punter and Kicker

punter and kicker for the 2013 Malad Dragons. He plays a versatile role on offense, defense and special teams. While he was not voted by the players as a captain (they could only vote for four players), Hubbard is definitely a vocal leader both on and off the field, like the rest of the seniors on this year’s team. Football is not the only sport Hubbard plays for the Dragons, as he is also a standout basketball and baseball player for Malad High School.

Brody has been sensational so far this year for the Dragons. He has been the go-to target at receiver so far this season. Last week in a tough road loss against Bear Lake, Hubbard hauled in 8 passes for 174 yards and 3 touchdowns for the Dragons. “Brody has played so well for us this year. If he continues to push himself on and off the field, I really believe he has potential to play at the collegiate level. His speed and size make it difficult for opposing defensive backs to match up with him, and he just seems to make big play after big play when we need it the most,” head coach Coda Tchida said.

Hubbard works hard in the weight room, during practice, and on the playing field. In the offseason, he and his senior teammates set up conditioning and throwing sessions, and he attended weight lifting as well. When asked about the hard work this team has put in in the offseason and through the first four weeks Hubbard said, “We have put in so much work, that when it comes down to the district games we will be ready to compete and win a district title. Whether it is watching film, lifting, conditioning or throwing with my teammates, we have put in the time to have a successful season. We all (players and coaches) know we have a brutal schedule this year, but it is only making us stronger as a team.”

The Dragons are coming off of two tough losses to Firth and Bear Lake, but will look to rebound this week at home against another tough 3A team in Sugar-Salem. “This week is going to be mentally and physically draining,” Hubbard said. He continued, “We have been staying focused and have had a great week of practice. The scout team has pushed us and been very physical this week, which has helped us to prepare for Sugar. We will be ready to go Friday and we hope we can come out on top again Friday night.”

“I just want to get out there and get a win Friday night,” Hubbard said. Brody and the Dragons will be in action at home against Sugar-Salem Friday night with kickoff slated for 7:00 p.m.

Native American Dancers to perform at Malad Scarecrow Festival on Saturday

Dancers 3

Typical dance maneuvers include a lot of movement in the arms and upper body, and dancers wear intricately designed attire.

The Malad Scarecrow Festival will kick off Saturday, September 28, 2013.   Among the many-featured events of the day, one highlight is the Native American Dancers out of Salt Lake City. The group of drummers and dancers is made up mostly of youth who are learning about the culture and traditions within the powwow circle and their individual tribal customs. When they started out a couple years ago as a drum group, they drummed under the name Southern War Pony. Most of the drummers were already dancers in the powwow circle as well and were champion dancers across the powwow trail. Represented by our young group are many tribes, including Diné (Navajo), Ute, Hualapai, Shoshone, Pueblo, and a few more.

Because of their high energy and desire to uphold their cultural beliefs and traditions, they have been called upon to perform, educate, and help other

individuals, businesses, organizations, schools, and the community. The drummers and dancers love to share their knowledge and talents given to them by the Creator and do so with much respect and honor. They are considered leaders and role models for the youth by recognizing the discipline it takes to be a dancer and drummer in everyday life, according to Michelle Robb, the group’s spokesperson.
Another highlight is a band, Coyotee Moon, featuring former Malad residents – the Lewis brothers, Steve and Terry Lewis, along with Lisa Stubblefield. The western music harmony trio has performed at other Scarecrow Festivals in the past, at the Malad Valley Welsh Festival and just recently spent the whole day performing at the huge Malad’s 4th of July celebration. Their passion for preserving the western way of life is reflected in the songs they play and sing. They not only write their own songs and sing about the cowboy way of life, but rounding up the cattle, branding the calves and playing music around the campfire is what they love the most. The three part harmonies are tightly blended together with Steve Lewis on lead guitar, Lisa Stubblefield on rhythm, and Terry Lewis on bass.

Another fun event will be the Demolition Derby, which will start at 7:00 p.m. The Demolition Derby will also hold the Redneck Olympics. There will be many events in the Redneck Olympics. Events include the Si Lookalike Contest, in which participants dress up like the famous Duck Dynasty TV personality, the toilet lid toss, sprite banana chugging and a mustache contest. There are no entry fees and no pre-registration for these events.

In past years the Scarecrow Festival has been a huge success, and with a few new events, it promises to be even better this year! Displays will be open at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 28 and the concession stand will open at 4:00 p.m. New events for this year’s Scarecrow Festival are the Ugliest Dog Contest and Sheep Camp exhibits.

Other events include a chili cook-off, sponsored by the Oneida County Hospital, the Biggest pumpkin contest, Chicken Poop Bingo, scarecrow displays, an antique tractor show, a horseshoe pitching contest, a blacksmith demonstration by Lonnie Jensen, the announcement of the Where’s Willie? contest winner and lots of vendors.

The Festival is jam-packed with a lot of fun events and displays, head to the fair grounds Saturday and enjoy all of the fun events associated with the 2013 Festival.

MHS Featured Football Player of the Week: Senior Quarterback, Griffin Green

as one of the captains of this year’s team, Griffin is one of the vocal leaders both on and off the field for the Dragons. Green, along with his senior teammates, organized conditioning, lifting, and throwing over the summer, which has helped them prepare for this season also. Griffin also plays baseball and basketball for MHS and work at KJ’s in his spare time.

While the running game was on point for wins over Marsh Valley and Ririe, 
Green got the passing game going in a tough homecoming loss against Firth. Griffin threw for 228 yards and 2 touchdowns and one interception. Head coach Coda Tchida was proud of Griffin and how he stepped up last Friday. He said, “Griffin threw the ball really well, which was pretty much the whole game. Firth did a great job stopping our run game so a lot of pressure was put on Griffin and the passing game, and he stepped up and performed well.”Green also explained why the passing attack is vital if the Dragons are to continue winning football games. He said, “We have yet to have a game where we have both ran and passed the ball well. We need to have both in order to succeed. The passing game opens up our running lanes and is really important if we want to get more wins this season. Our players know we have the talent at every position and we hope to get back on the right track when we travel to Bear Lake Friday.”

Griffin continued by talking about the time he and his receivers and running backs put in this offseason to ensure they were on the same page for the tough slate of games in the 2013 season. “Over the summer, a bunch of us got together and ran routes and conditioned together. This allowed us to be on the same page and get our timing down and has helped us through the first three games this year,” he said. He continued, “I can’t wait to get back out on the field with my teammates Friday and to get back on track and get a win in Bear Lake.”

Green and the Dragons will be in action again Friday night when they travel to Bear Lake to take on yet another tough 3A school. Kickoff for Friday night’s contest is set for 7:00 p.m.

MHS Featured Football Player of the Week – Senior Running Back and Defensive Back, KC Snyder

MHS Featured Football Player of the Week, KC Snyder, carries the ball in space last week against Ririe. Snyder has ran for 275 yards and 5 touchdowns and also returned a kickoff 67 yards for a touchdown this season.

Malad Dragons. He is one of four senior captains for the team as well. He has had a stellar start to the 2013 season. In wins over Marsh Valley and Ririe, Snyder has accumulated 275 rushing yards on just 21 carries for a yards per carry average of 13 yards while scoring 5 touchdowns. He has also chipped in with a 67-yard kickoff return touchdown and 13 receiving yards. KC has also been playing shutdown defense on each opponents best receiver.

KC, like the other senior captains, is a vocal leader on and off the field for the Dragons. He is a beast in the weight room and even organized team activities throughout the summer, including conditioning and throwing. Head coach Coda Tchida was quick to praise all that KC brings to the team. He said, “KC is a great leader and competitor. He shows up to practice and games ready to work hard and push his teammates to be the best they can be.” Tchida also noted his outstanding athletic ability saying, “KC is a great running back and defensive back for this team. He hits the hole so hard and fast and is always running downhill, which is why it is so hard to bring him down. The running game is so vital to our success as a team, and KC’s ability to produce for us helps us out a lot.”

Snyder noted that he needs a lot of help from his teammates to continue to produce for the Dragons. He said, “the offensive line and receivers have stepped up and made it really easy for me to find the endzone. If they (offensive line and receivers) continue to open lanes for me to run through, we will continue to be successful.”

While Malad has started off with wins over Marsh Valley and Ririe, KC and the Dragons now have a tough three game slate before a bye week. Friday is homecoming against Firth and next week the Dragons travel to 3A Bear Lake for a tough road contest before coming back home to face another dangerous 3A team in Sugar-Salem.

“It is a tough next three games for us. But all of our focus and preparation is on Firth as they are going to be a very tough test for us on homecoming,” Snyder said. KC continued, “They have a lot of returning players and we know we have to play a perfect game against them at home to escape with a victory. Practice this week has been tough and we have watched a lot of film on them to help us prepare for the game. As a captain, I need to make sure that the players stay focused with all of the homecoming activities going on this week.”

KC and the Dragons will be in action for the homecoming game Friday night at 7:00 p.m. Make sure to wear your orange and black and come out and support the Malad High School Dragons in a tough contest against Firth.
