The Red Devils football team beat the Emery Spartans 33-6 on Friday, Sept. 20 at the 2019 Homecoming game in Moab as quarterback Bryant Troutt ran wild. Grand County improved to 3-3 at the season’s midway point.

Troutt was king – literally. Before the game, he served as homecoming king. He rode atop a Cobra Mustang alongside Queen Breahna Bisco in the parade and smiled and waved to Red Devils fans who lined Main Street.

During the game, Troutt ran for a kingly four rushing touchdowns, three that came in the first half.

Troutt put on a fantastic offensive show for the hometown crowd, but no man can win a game on his own. Offense and defense clicked in sync for the Red Devils on Homecoming night.

Brayden Troutt matched his brother’s performance. He made a few decisive defensive plays, had an interception and got a touchdown of his own late in the second quarter.

Joey Cloud celebrated a birthday on homecoming night. The cheerleaders serenaded Cloud with “Happy Birthday” and as always, he had significant runs and catches that put Grand in excellent field position.

Ryelan Jones intercepted the Spartans’ quarterback as time expired in the first half. Chance Arbon had an interception with less than a minute left in the game.

Grand County will be on the road for the next two weeks. They face the San Juan Broncos in Blanding on Friday, Sept 27. Grand County is scheduled to take on the Carbon Dinos in Price on Friday, Oct. 4.

The Red Devils will return to Moab on Friday, Oct. 11 to play the South Sevier Rams. Seniors will be recognized on that day.
