Even though the football season ended in disappointment with a 1-9 (1-4 SYL) record, Mountain football was able to notch some individual highlights at year’s end.

Some notable achievements occurred in the passing game, where a traditional run-first program gave way to standout performances at quarterback and wide receiver.

Highlighting the individual efforts was wide receiver Trent Adams, who set new school records in receptions in a single game (12 against Independence) and receptions in a season (42) to go with a record he set in 2018 as a junior with the longest kickoff return for a touchdown (96 yards against Taft). Adams is also fourth all-time in reception yards in a season with 575 yards, second all-time in receptions yards in a single game (188 against Taft), while also securing third all-time in receptions in a single game with seven recorded against both Taft and Bakersfield.

Tye also logged in three touchdown passes against Golden Valley this season, which puts him at a tie for third all-time.
