SALT LAKE CITY — Utah prep football historian George Felt highlights a few rivalries, streaks and individual accomplishments heading into week 2.

Landmark games

  • Emery County (at North Sanpete) aims for its 250th victory.
  • Northridge plays its 300th contest.

Rivalry contests – 50 game minimum

  • 91st – South Summit at North Summit – North Summit leads 46-40-4 since 1942; last year North Summit won for just the second time in the last 11 meetings and snapped a five-game South Summit winning streak in the series.
  • 80th – Union at Uintah – Union leads 42-36-1 since 1951.
  • 61st – Tooele at Grantsville – Tooele leads 43-14-3 since 1914.
  • 53rd – Davis at Viewmont – Davis leads 36-15-1 since 1964.

Winning streaks

  • Corner Canyon has won 27 straight, tied for the fifth longest streak in state history. A victory over Herriman this week ties the Chargers in fourth place with Rich (1994-97).
  • Beaver has won 14 in a row (one shy of a school record set in 1973-74 and 2015-16), Sky View — 13 (a school record; the Bobcats won 12 straight in 2015), Orem — 6 and Morgan — 4.
  • At the other end, Cottonwood has lost 17 in a row and Rich, 10.

Individual notes

  • Last week, Ogden’s Logan Shobe compiled 387 all-purpose yards (vs. Union), the 24th-most in state history. His 316 rushing yards ranks 44th all-time.

  • Kjar is tied (with five others) for 21st in career touchdown receptions with 29.
  • He remains in 10th place in career receptions with 193, but is one shy of ninth and five away from eighth.
  • Sky View’s Kasen Erickson is tied for 25th in career extra points with 119; he’s seven away from the top-20.
