Head Coach Coda Tchida loves everything Jensen brings to the field for the Dragons. He Said, “Josh, like the rest of our seniors, gives us 110% at all times. He will do what needs to be done in order to push his teammates to be the best they can be both on and off the field.

We have been working on tackling and staying low and we know we have to go out and do both of those exceptionally well in order to stay alive in our district,” he continued.

Jensen also mentioned that the main focus this week will be stopping Soda’s offense. He said, “It all starts with creating turnovers and forcing three and outs on the defensive side of the ball. We have to stay disciplined and do our jobs this week. We want to stay in the hunt for a district title, so beating Soda is a must; it is do-or-die this week.”

Malad and Soad Springs will kickoff on Friday at 7:00 p.m. in Soda Springs. Come out and watch Josh and the Dragons in a must-win district matchup.
