Senior lineman Logan Johnson in a three point stance during the first game of the year against Millard West’s biggest rivals down the street, Millard South. In his final first game of high school football, Millard West lost against Millard South with a result of 28-27. “I wanted to strengthen my knee as much as I could,” Johnson said. “I wanted to come back as a better player than before, and focus on making what used to be my weakness my strength. I think the surgery made me closer to the game and love it a lot more.

Coach Jacque Tevis-Butler gives a presentation on Title IX at the Women in Sports and Leadership summit. Tevis-Butler spoke about the importance of female representation in athletics. “Representation matters because if you can see it, you can be it,” Tevis-Butler said. “When women are not equally represented in leadership positions, it sends a subtle, but extremely powerful and negative message about women.  It sends the message that men hold all power. We need more perspectives.”
