The Game Of the Year?

The Miners will have a chance for revenge this September.

By Kaleb Loftus

On Sept. 4, Bingham could be hosting the game of the year, as Bishop Gorman High School from Las Vegas rolls into town. It will be a highly anticipated rematch, either for revenge for the Miners or sure dominance for the Gaels.

The Miners fell last time when the teams met in Las Vegas in Sept. 2014, by kicking a field goal to tie the game in the closing seconds of regulation, but falling 20-23 in overtime. Both teams in the past 2014-15 season won their own state championships and enter this year as title contenders once again.

Gorman finished last season atop the MaxPreps Top 25 Composite Rankings and enter this season ranked third. Bingham, meanwhile, will enter the season as the 47th ranked team in the nation. 

Keaton Torre, a transfer from Oklahoma, will take reigns at quarterback for the Miners as he squares off against Tate Martell. Martell, as a sophomore last season, led Bishop Gorman to the national title and threw for 2,537 yards, 40 touchdowns and only two interceptions. 

The Miners will have their hands full, but can make their mark in not just state history but nationally as well. It will be a game worth seeing.
