West Jordan - Wicked wind, snow, light rain or blistering heat will not deter West Jordan and Copper Hills little league football teams from storming the field to take on their next opponents.

“We had lots of kids this year. It was exciting and awesome. I have nothing but praise for our volunteer coaches and board members. I am thankful for the time they put in,” Copper Hills Ute Conference president Rex Fivas said.

The Scout Division (7 and 8 year olds) at Copper Hills, coached by Preston Sweeney, had a very successful season. They captured a division championship with a 21-19 victory over Olympus on Nov. 14.  They finished the regular season with a 7-4 record overall. They defeated Cyprus in the first round of the playoffs 28-6.

“Overall our Scout program was a great success. We had four teams of 7- and 8-year-olds. It was great,” Fivas said.

West Jordan little league also celebrated its own championships.  Bantam Division (13-year-olds) head coach Conrad Capel led his team to a 28-14 victory over East for a division championship.  Jethro Knox helped guide his Midget Division (12-year-olds) to a championship with a 20-19 thrilling victory over Taylorsville. The Mity Mite Division team (11-year-olds), led by Steve Coffman, defeated East 25-24 for its championship.

West Jordan and Copper Hills youth football programs participate in the Ute Conference Football Program governed by the national organization USA Football.

Copper Hills had nearly 380 participants and 19 teams; West Jordan had 10 teams.

Both programs are run by volunteers. They help with uniforms, equipment, snack shacks, scheduling and safety.

“I cannot wait until next season,” Fivas said.

Ute Conference Football was established to promote the opportunity for all players to enjoy and participate in the game of football. West Jordan hosts its league games at West Jordan Middle School, and Copper Hills plays at West Hills Middle School.
