The Rocky Mountain football team picked up a high honor this afternoon from Maxpreps.com. The grizzlies finished the season with just one loss and captured the Idaho class 5A state championship with a win over rival Mountain View. This year's state championship is the fist for the grizzlies since fielding a varsity football team eight years ago. Rocky Mountain received a national ranking of 67th out of 15,000 high school varsity football teams. Head coach Scott Criner was also awarded the 5A coach of the year honor.
"Its is all the work of our coaches, parents, and administrators. We get a lot of support here at Rocky and this is a nice way to cap off a great season. We want to this to continue and we want to keep it going. We are hoping that the older coaches, the older kids, and the older players will pass on the way we do business here at rocky. They all see how it is this isn't the first and we will do it many more times.” said Rocky Mountain head coach Scott Criner.
