MHS Featured Football Player of the Week

Ilan Anderson, Senior Wide Receiver and Defensive Back

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.

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.
