Head Coach Brandon Matich led his Leopards to an 8-1 record thus far with the only loss coming from the hands of the Bingham High Miners. Currently, they are still scheduled to play a non-conference game against the IMG Academy on October 20. The leopards have a star in Sione Molisi who led the team (by far) with 20 rushing touchdowns. The next highest scorer is Charlie Vincent who had eight rushing touchdowns. Most notably absent is rival opponent Highland from this year’s schedule. East is looking to win their third straight state championship, though with a different classification than the last two years, it will most certainly prove to be a more difficult feat.
