“Dason Youngblood is simply a winner. You can’t argue with a starting guard on back-to-back state championship teams. He is one of those kids that coaches joke that they hate as an opponent but would love to have on their team. He has that X factor that every coach wants in his players that can’t really be taught. He is an ultimate competitor and just knows how to win. He comes from a great family with quite the basketball legacy, and this kid has definitely added to that legacy. He is an explosive scorer. If he wants to get to the rim, there is really no stopping him. He developed his outside shot to a level that you would have to honor that as well. He has the ability to just simply put his team on his back and carry them to a win… as evidenced by him scoring all 22 of his team’s 22 points at half in our first meeting. He is an excellent passer. He sees the floor so well and just has the unique ability to find the right guy at the right time. He rebounds as good as any guard...
The Class of '87 Thirty-Year Reunion will be held August 26, 2017 at Canyon Rim Park in SLC. Mark your calendars and start making travel plans now! Details and costs are being worked out, but Jason Bennion states that it will be a relaxed daytime event; the venue DOES allow alcohol, so those that want are welcome to BYOB, but there are no plans for a formal bar or bartender. Tickets will start selling soon, and they will likely be around $25-30 per person. More news will be posted as the committee does further planning. In the meantime, Jason asks that everyone reading this help to spread the word. He wants to make sure everyone in the Class of 1987 knows about this! He encourages class members to post this information on social media, call, text, send old-fashioned snail mail... even talk face-to-face if that's your thing! The committee plans to mail out physical announcements later, but wants to get some buzz going now. ...

Sierra McNicol, Bingham Sr., Guard 2016-2017 statistics 16.7 point per game Season high 27 points vs. Taylorsville on Feb. 14 Opposing coach scouting report “Sierra was unquestionably one of the most difficult players to defend in our region. She is a good shooter... but she is at her best when she is driving to the basket. She has excellent strength and body control, and is an expert at initiating contact, drawing fouls, and finishing around the rim. Really improved her quickness and overall conditioning from her junior to senior year.”
Ogden • Dason Youngblood was left by his lonesome in the open court. The high-flying guard known for his ability to play above the rim despite his diminutive stature passed on the opportunity to throw it down in favor of the more secure layup. Bingham was on the verge of blowing open the Class 5A state boys’ basketball championship at Weber State University at the juncture, so the safer play was more logical. However, when Youngblood found himself in the exact scenario moments later Saturday, the senior rose to the occasion and hammered down a two-handed dunk that sent the blue-painted student section into a frenzy. It was the beginning of the end as the Miners were able to close out Lone Peak with relative ease from there to claim their second consecutive title with the 49-42 win. “They’re all sweet,” Bingham coach Jake Schroeder said. “I’ve been really spoiled with great players, great school, great coaches around me. It’s sweet.” Youngblood finished with...

5A championship: Bingham rallies past Lone Peak to win second-straight state title By Brandon Gurney@brandoncgurney Published: March 4, 2017 1:45 p.m.Updated: 3 hours ago Jeffrey D. Allred, Deseret News OGDEN — Some players dubbed it 'Miner magic' while others could say it was simply an exercise of the cream rising to the top when it mattered most. But no matter what exactly happened, the end result was another 5A state championship for Bingham basketball. Miners' guard Dason Youngblood put the exclamation point on his team's dominant fourth quarter on Saturday — putting through a break-away layup to push his team's lead to 42-36 with just under a minute remaining. He then decided to get up a little higher during his second opportunity — dunking the ball on an almost identical play to extend the lead to 44-36 a few seconds later. "I don't know if I went up meaning to dunk it, but it just happened. I w...

Another basketball tournament is over and Jordan reigns as the Class A champion for 1963. What a game basketball is and how hard it is to predict the outcome of a game by past performance. This year was a good example as Jordan only lost two games in regular league play and both defeats came at the hands of the Bingham Miners, who finished sixth in the tournament. A basket made or missed or a few foul shots made and Bingham may well have been the champs. Anyway, the boys from Bingham gave a good account of themselves and they undoubtedly took enough out of Bountiful the third night of the tourney, to make the victory for Jordan easier Saturday. Stellar star Jim Jimas joined the long line of All Staters from Bingham and was the leading scorer in the Class A classic. Guess we can claim a bit of glory the selection of Tom Marriott from Jordan on the All-State team and rated by most of the writers, the outstanding...
