HIGHLAND, Utah -- Jackson McChesney has been a human highlight reel for the Lone Peak Knights, and undefeated Lone Peak will play Herriman for the 5A football championship on Friday at Rice-Eccles Stadium.

McChesney has been an instrumental part of that run, but the junior wide receiver was faced with a difficult decision last week during Lone Peak's semi-final win over Bingham: Stay and play, or attend the funeral of his cousin, who died just days before of a tragic car accident.
