  • The football team at Payson took first place in state fall of 2008 in our division. The coaching team had to kick many "star" players off the team for drinking and inapropriate behavior off campus the year previous. It was a hard decision that I am glad they made. The boys on the team are all very respectful and reliable. Speaking as a community employer I am proud of the boys on last years team.

  • The football team at Payson High is the worst football team in the nation. My son feels like his self esteem lowers each day, the coaches arent modivating them in any way to win and he feels shut down. He plays on the defencive line and at his old school he was the star of the team, but now he feels like he is the loser of the team. He's thinking about just giving up. All i can say is, the coaches need to get it together.
