Red Devils have victorious homecoming

Welcome to Red Devil Territory!

Springville High’s homecoming game was electrifying; the Red Devils lit the field up for homecoming with a booming start to the game.  Bennet Hullinger sparked SHS with a 30 yard touchdown run early in the first quarter.  A few minutes later, star quarterback Jantsen Thorpe threw a 75 yard touchdown pass to Hullinger to make the score 14-0 early on. Hullinger ended the night with 2 rushes for 30 yards, 1 touchdown, and 1 reception for 75 yards.  Shutting out Spanish Fork again, SHS got the ball back in Thorpe’s hands. The result was a 40 yard touchdown pass to Brennen Rymer making the score 21-0 in the first quarter of the game.

But, Springville’s win was all but certain with Spanish Fork out-scoring the Devils 27-6 over the course of the next 3 quarters tying the score at 27-27.  Going into OT, Spanish Fork received the ball to start.  The Don’s drive was short lived when it ended with a fumble turning the ball over to SHS. Thorpe going 5 for 12 for 128 yards, 2 TD’s and 1 interception drove the ball down the field, ending with Payton Kelepolo running in a 2 yard touchdown giving him 35 carries with 182 yards and two touchdowns to end the game with a Red Devil hard fought victory, 33-27.

FFA Serves at Reams


On August 6, 2016, Springville FFA members traveled to Reams for an Agriculture Awareness Day, Field to Fork. Families shopping at Reams were able to attend workshops about food and were entered to win a $50 shopping gift card for Reams donated by Harward Farms. There were five stations set up around the store to teach children about dairy, meat, fruits, vegetables, and grains.

At each station FFA members taught children about the different parts of My Plate. FFA had a blast teaching kids about where their food comes from and how it’s made.  The parents thought it was a great idea to teach children about food and were very excited about the $50 gift card.

We would like to thank our sponsors that made Field to Fork possible: Utah's Own, Utah/Nevada Dairy Council, Utah Beef Council, Utah County Farm Bureau, USU Extension, Utah Pork Producers, and McMullin Orchards.
