Three phenomenal Canyons District athletes and one record-breaking football game have been nominated by the State Sports Commission for top honors in the Governor’s State of Sport Awards. Winners are determined by an online vote.
The epic, triple-overtime Jordan ‘Diggers vs. Brighton Bengals football game, which resulted in a high-as-a-basketball-game score of 78-76, has been nominated by the State Sports Commission as the Athletic Event of the Year. Last year’s winner was the University of Utah’s football team for its winning play against No. 5 Stanford.
