Ebert Goes Down to Georgia

Scotty Ebert and his Jordan High School teammates traveled over 2000 miles to take on Valdosta High, the sixth-ranked team in the football factory that is the state of Georgia. It would seem to be a daunting task for most, but for Ebert and the Jordan Beetdiggers, there was no intimidation factor, just a resolve to win.

"We expected to win," said Scotty Ebert, who plays wide receiver and cornerback for the Beetdiggers, "We went a long way, but we knew we were as good as they were going in and we proved that we were the better team."

Ebert is a 5-foot-11, 190-pound WR/CB prospect who, earlier this year, committed to sign a letter of intent with BYU next February. While Ebert is pleased with how his team did, he did not have a standout individual performance against Valdosta. It was and is all about the team for Ebert, however.

"I only had one catch," said Ebert. "We spread it around pretty good, and I only got one, but I was pleased with how I played on defense. Although I didn't have one of my better games, I couldn't be more happy about the win."

Before playing in front of more than 10,000 fans the Jordan high team took a trip to a nearby Air Force base.

"It was great going there," said Ebert about the visit. "Just seeing all the planes up close was great. The whole trip was one of the best experiences of my life, but the best thing was that we won the game."

Jordan got off to an early 14-0 lead and went into halftime up 21-7 before eventually finishing Valdosta off 21-13.

"We held them off," said Ebert. "They came back, but we were able to hold on to win."

The schedule does not get any easier for Ebert and his teammates as they set to square off against chief rival Bingham this coming Friday. Bingham has Cougar commits Jordan Pendleton and Star Lotulelei on its roster along with super junior prospects Austin Holt and Derek Tuimauga.

"It's a huge game for us," said Ebert. "Bingham and Alta are our biggest rivals. We can't wait to play them. We're very confident now off our last win, but beating our in-state rivals is what is most important."
