The meaning of the saying “let sleeping dogs lie” is “Avoid interfering in a situation which is currently stable.” Geoffrey Chaucer was one of the first authors to put this saying in to print, when he wrote “It is nought good a slepyng hound to wake.” It is thought that a dog is unpredictable when woken up abruptly and unexpectedly.

Whats the point of this English lesson?

Sedona Red Rock was selected as the 2A Salt Region Sleeper, meaning dont be surprised if they make some noise in the region. The logic? Their current head coach had some success at another high school up north years ago and his presence alone was going to turn the program around.

Zach Jackson had his 99yds and 2 TDs through the air, Nisa Maafu added his 103yds 2TDs on the ground and Gage Lentz had 259 total yds with 2 TDs thrown and 2TDs on the ground to lead the offense.

Harris Lytle had a 73 yd Punt Return for a TD in the second half to ice the game.

Defense spent A LOT of time in Sedonas backfield with Will Tork, Mark Vuletic, Jackson Walters, Nisa Maafu, Harris Lytle and Eli Ravelo each having at least 2 tackles for a loss. Unheard of.

So instead I offer this version of the aforementioned saying, written in December 1822 The London Magazine published a fanciful mariner’s script entitled “The Second Tale of Allan Lorburne”, which included:

“Let sleeping dogs lie, said the daft man, when he saw the dead hound before him.”
