It must have been terribly frustrating for the East High defense.
Britain Covey, Timpview’s shifty and shaky quarterback, spun and twisted his way past East defenders all Friday afternoon.
In the end, Timpview claimed its second-consecutive state championship by beating East High 33-28 at Rice-Eccles Stadium largely due to the efforts of Covey.
The Timpview fans couldn’t get enough of their crafty QB chanting “Covey! Covey! Covey!” immediately following the T-Birds win.
Covey, who’s only a junior, finished the game with 273 yards and two touchdowns passing and 120 yards rushing.
And, following a rough start, the Timpview defense did just enough to hold off the hard-charging Leopards.
After allowing more than 300 yards and 25 points in the first half, the Timpview defense made second-half adjustments and held East to a mere 78 yards and three points in the second half.
