field for the Dragons. He Said, “Tanner, like the rest of our seniors, gives us 110% at all times. He is a high-energy guy and a great athlete. He pushes himself and his teammates at practice, in the weight room, and during games.”

The Dragons are coming off of a bye week and have been preparing for district rival West Side for the past two weeks. “We always want to go out and get a win against West Side,” Lewis said. “They like to run the ball and are very aggressive on the defensive side of the ball. We have been watching a lot of film and going hard during practice for the past two weeks. We will be prepared to come out in front of our home crowd on Senior Night and get a win,” he continued.

Tanner also noted that Malad’s success starts with the offensive and defensive lines. He said, “Our offense relies on the line to keep our quarterback protected and to get our run game going. We have to be on top of our game against a very aggressive West Side defense in order to be successful Friday night. On the defensive side of the ball we have to take on blocks and stuff the run game, and that all starts with the defensive line pushing the opponents’ offensive line back.”

This will be Malad’s final regular season home game of the season and the Dragons want to make it a memorable night. “We want nothing more than to go out and beat West Side on Senior Night. It is crazy that the season has gone by so fast already and that this will be the last time the seniors will suit up in front of this crowd under the lights on our home field. We want to go out and perform well on both sides of the ball and get a win,” Lewis finished.

Malad and West Side will kickoff on Friday at 7:00 p.m. in Malad. Come out and watch the game and cheer on Tanner and the Dragons on Senior Night.

MHS Featured Football Player of the Week

This week’s Malad High School Featured Player of the Week is

senior wide receiver and defensive back Ilan Anderson. Ilan is a 5’9″ 135 pound speedster for the Malad Dragons. He brings a great attitude to the team both on and off the field. He is a vocal leader and can be found helping his teammates both before and after practice on the field. At times, Anderson will also return kick offs for the Dragons. Ilan also participates in track and cheerleading for MHS.

According to Head Coach Coda Tchida, Ilan brings something special to this team. He said, “Ilan is a high-energy player. He is quick to praise his teammates when they do their job on the field, and is their to help them get it right and push them if they need that extra confidence boost.” Anderson is not only a speedy wideout, but a lockdown defender as well. “Ilan is fast enough to cause mismatches on the outside but is disciplined enough to lock down opponents,” Tchida continued.

While the Dragons are on a bye week, Anderson and his teammates have been spending the week preparing for their final three games; all of which are district games. Their main focus has been on district rival West Side, whom they play at home on Friday, October 11. Malad has had trouble stopping the run so far this year, and Ilan knows that West Side is going to come here and try to establish their powerful running game. He said, “West Side is like every opponent we have face so far. They will try to establish their run game, and they are really good at doing that. We have been practicing hard and watching a lot of film and are really lucky to have 2 full weeks of practice to make the necessary adjustments on the defensive side of the ball to be successful against them.”

While stopping the Pirates is key to winning the game, Anderson knows that the offense has to stay sharp and disciplined as well. “Our offense has been spot on the last few weeks, but we have not been able to pull out a victory. We have to continue making plays and putting up points and eventually I believe everything else will fall into place,’ he said. “Having a bye week is good for the team, because it allows us to get healthy and it allows us to figure out exactly what we are going to do on the offensive and defensive side of the ball. It also just makes it that much more exciting because we have been waiting for two weeks to get out their and play against a tough district opponent. I know we will be ready to go.”

Ilan and the Dragons will be in action for their final home game against the West Side Pirates on Friday, October 11. Kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m. here in Malad.
