Prep boys’ basketball » Lone Peak played — and defeated — some of the nation’s top teams.

< Previous Page

For Emery, whose older brother Jackson starred at Lone Peak eight years ago, playing basketball with his best friends is what he knows. He is set to leave on his LDS mission to Germany in May and says the light at the end of the tunnel is shining brighter with these six days left in his high school career.

And capping it with a third state crown?

"It’s been my dream," he said.

When Shumway realized just how close the end is, he took a deep breath. He’ll be a wide receiver at BYU, meaning his days of finishing off a lob from his friends or a game-changing block at the rim are numbered.

"I’ve been playing since I was 5," he said, "way longer than I’ve played football. It means a lot to me."

Now, if things go according to plan for the best team in Utah high school history, four games remain. That’s 128 minutes left for echoing cheers — to encapsulate all those hours on cross-country flights, in laughs shared in hotel rooms all across the country — 128 minutes to make everyone remember what they did on the court.

Not just as Lone Peak Knights, or as state champions, but as the team to never forget.
