With the 2014 high school boys soccer season getting underway last week in what should be another fantastic season, the Deseret News has compiled capsules for every 3A team in the state with information on what to expect this season.

The region rankings are based on preseason coaches' projections. Every coach was invited to participate and submit information on their team.

There is one new head soccer coach in 3A this year: Josh Wardle (Juab).

Here's a region-by-region look at all 22 teams in 3A.

2. Juan Diego High School

Woodey Greer

Jack Saunders

Coach Comment: “We have a good and experienced group returning with some solid newcomers in Michael DiGeronimo and Brandon Sands. We will have to be much better in the final third than we were a year ago, but I think we have the players to do so. I expect us to be a major player this season. We have good leadership and great talent. I think it's going to be a battle at the top of the region between Juan Diego and Park City, with the winner having a great opportunity to make a deep run to the championship game.

Region 9 is the class of 3A with a number of strong teams. I expect Ben Lomond, Stansbury and Bear River will battle for the title in Region 11. Region 12 has some work to do to be competitive. I would expect that either Region 9 or 10 will have two teams in the semifinals with the potential of the top two teams in each of those leagues making the semis. ”

Coach Comment: "We have several returning starters from last year. We are a young team and started four freshmen last year. We will look for leaders to emerge. Kyade Morgan, Tylar Madsen, Colton Terry, Austin Brake and Cameron Dickinson will be the leaders on the field and TJ Smith with be our senior leader in the goal.

“We are a young team. We hope to build on our experience last year with many underclassmen getting significant playing time. We will look to improve each week, give consistent effort and create opportunities to score. Playing in the 3A division will be tough with many schools who have access to year-round soccer. We are looking forward to the challenge and expect to have a great season.”
