"Dayton is smart and creative in his offense. He's intuitive on defense and he brings his entire team up with his significant effort and positive attitude."
SHANE FERRIN, Head coach at Spanish Fork High


The 5-foot-11, 155-pound junior defender and midfielder had led the Golden Eagles to a 12-1 record at the time of his selection. Dayton scored 8 goals and passed for 14 assists through 13 games. A veteran of the Region IV Olympic Development Program and Real Salt Lake Academy, he leads a Maple Mountain defense that has recorded eight shutouts and allowed just seven goals.


Dayton has maintained a 3.79 GPA in the classroom.


A devoted member of his church community and a peer tutor in his school, he has participated in multiple trips to assist orphanages in rural Mexico.

Ian Stonehocker, Maple Mountain (Jr.)

The Golden Eagles are perfect in Region 8 this season with just two matches remaining, and this junior is a big reason why.

The forward has scored 12 goals and handed 17 assists this season, and was instrumental in a pair of easy wins over Salem Hills and Springville last week.

“Ian’s unmatched creativity on the ball, commitment to defense from the front line and endless work ethic makes him one of the most dynamic players on the pitch. Ian’s goal total is impressive, yet the more impressive thing about him is the ability for him to open chances for his teammates, partially shown by his impressive 17 assists on the season,” said Maple Mountain coach Mike Klauck.

MMHS Spotlight - Abby Taylor and Emma Hill

Being the school valedictorian or salutatorian is a huge honor. This year our valedictorian is Abby Taylor and our salutatorian is Emma Hill. To choose the two positions, it is traditionally based off of GPA and total credits taken. Sometimes it is also based off of co-curricular and extracurricular activities they have been a part of. Both were members of the cross-country team, Abby in her junior year and Emma this past year. Both students worked extremely hard not only this year, but all their years at MMHS. We are proud of our hardworking students here at Maple Mountain.

Abby Taylor got the highest rank for the graduating class of 2016. The valedictorian usually gives the valedictory speech at graduation. Valedictorian is chosen specifically to represent the graduating class. When asked how she felt about being the valedictorian, she answered, “I'm not really sure there is anything to feel about being valedictorian. It is just a title. It doesn't change anything that I have done or will do, but it does feel good to be validated for my hard work.” This year she participated in science olympiad. There are many students who have extremely high GPA and have taken many credits, but not many accurately represent the graduating class of 2016.

Emma Hill had the second highest rank in the graduating class and is placed next to this year’s valedictorian. The salutatorian gives the opening speech at graduation, or salutation. Emma says, it was never a goal for her to be the salutatorian, but she is proud of her accomplishment. She said she was really surprised when she found out she was the salutatorian. This year she was both on the cross-country team, and the band president. Emma Hill worked just as hard as Abby Taylor and deserves to be awarded salutatorian; both represent the best Maple Mountain has to offer.
