My top 10 Preseason for 3A : 1. Hurricane - Reigning 3A Champs, loaded
with starters from last year. High scoring offense once again2. Spanish
Fork - Offense almost entirely new, but with a great new head coach, look for
them to be a threat3. Stansbury - Insane QB with stable full of running
backs along with killer defense makes for a tough Stallion team. Not to mention
insane depth in the program4. Juan Diego - Coach always puts together an
dangerous team, can't be counted out. Will be looking for revenge on the
Dons5. Pine View - Had alot of hype last year, but they have always been a
danger in 3A, just got lumped in tough Region 96. Dixie - Returns QB, and
alot of talent from last year. Darkhorse of 3A IMO7. Delta - Small town
toughness.8. Grantsville - Loaded with starters on both sides of the ball,
offense should be better this year with returning QB and running backs. One of
the best defenses in 3A to cause headaches, look for them to turn some heads 9. Morgan - Nearly same situation with G-Ville, loaded with underclassmen.10. Wasatch - Returns major contributors from last year. Another Darkhorse.
I am quite surprised that South Sevier isn't in the top five 2A teams with
all of the talent coming back and another year of seasoning for a talented
Bingham is a good pick as #1 in 5A. Great coaching, great kids, great support
and they know who they are and what they do well. I don't think Lone Peak
will be as good as last year without Hansen but will be #2 or #3 in Region 4
with Pleasant Grove pushing them. Alta is extremely talented again, but after
watching them lose with all that talent last year I am afraid they'll fall
flat again in the playoffs unless they figure it out offensively. I'd have
to put Jordan higher than they are, lots of returning linemen and they could
give Alta a run for their money in Region 3. I'd put Syracuse above Davis
to round out the top 5.
After 4 trips to the finals,good to see Hurricane getting the early props. what
happened to all the love for PV no matter how they do. I thought it was a lock
every year. Go TIGERS.
Fremont and Davis are clearly the top 2 in region 1.
Region one dont matter people.We all know this. Bingham,
Jordan, Cwood, will be 3 of the 4 teams making it to the turf,4th to be
decided, but Im very excited for all the games this year.Jordans got
a weak preseason schedule, excited to see this team,But not excited for
the jordan fan base. I dont see how people are giving lone peak so
much, after losing about 16 senior starters from last years team, including the
best player in the state at QB, he won state alone. Dont know much
bout Binghams new QB, but has TEs and d1 reciever, plus one of the top 4
defenses in the entire state. Just need to score some points. Well
see how it turns out,Cant wait for Bingham alta game, then Bingham Cwood
game against soon to be BAMA QB there at Cwood.
Binghamalum, Don't know much about the QB because they haven't
selected a starter yet. Was still 3 kids in the running going to camp last
week. Think it's narrowed between 2. Could see them doing a lot of
subbing at the QB spot and running some option with one of them. They've
always had great TE's, but they never use them. RB's will be a
different breed than we're used to seeing at Bingham this year. More of a
quick slashing type running this year than the big bruisers they've had.
Should be much better on the O line front. And their D will be very solid like
you stated. Should be a fun season!
Its going to be a great year of football...I have to say that the Tigers are the
ones to beat in 3A and with all their returning player are going to be a tough
team.Although JD didnt make the turf last year, I think this year will be much
different. They have a group of Juniors that have never lost a game since they
were Freshman and saw playing time last year with the varsity as sophomores,
they even went up to Cottonwood last year and won.I know for a fact that the JD
Eagle will be playing for more then just a Championship...Rest in Love Adam
Colosimo #2 RB for the Soaring Eagle..Good Luck to ALL the
student-athletes from all different High Schools, that will be playing football
or any other sport this upcoming year...!!
Binghamalum explain how you think CW will make it to the turf, they'll be
lucky to be better than Brighton for 3rd in Region 3. They still have no
defense, they have an entirely new coaching staff and they weren't very
good last year and won't be any better this year. Bateman is good but when
they face a good defense he can't do it alone.Jordan as always has a
patsy schedule and only play three decent teams all year, Alta, Brighton, and LB
Poly. They'll look great in their weak games and will get beat by the good
teams who pressure their qb into throwing int's....same as last year.
I dont get how a team with an SEC signed QB is not going to be very good????with multiple recruits on there team, I do think losing the coach is the
worst possible thing to happen to them. But who else do I say will
be there? Im sure some region 1 team wil be there because of the
bracketing of teams, and how bad region 2 is in football. Again
state tourney goes through region 3 and region 4. Nuff said.I just
am excited to see what type of Bingham we will get this year, instead of the
last 6 years of giving it to a big bulky back and run it in the I-Formation all
game, until somemone stops them, sounds like this wont be the way they run the
offense this year. PS who ever schedules for ALTA, good for you,
because you go out and play anyone, and good luck against the 2011 HIGH SCHOOL
STATE FOOTBALL NATIONAL CHAMPIONS, Don Bosco Prep, from New Jersey. who recruits
kids from Florida to play high school football. They had 17 players sign D1
letters last year.
I am excited to get Herriman Football started back up this year. The #5 ranking
in 4A seems about right. I expect Herriman to run the board in Region 7 and
should compete for the state title...with Logan and East being the biggest
playoff challengers. The Herriman defense, which returns 9 starters, will be a
force to be reckoned with. The key games that will define Herriman's
season will be Riverton, Highland, Skyline and Olympus. In the end, I look for
Herriman to finish 5-0 in Region 7 and possibly 10-0 going into the playoffs.
Not sure if I agree with Davis in the top 5. I think Syracuse, in region 1, is
the team to beat. Region1 will be very competitive, not sure who else in
region1 will be playoff teams this year. I'm buying the hype
surrounding Cottonwood (to many D1 players to not be good).binghamalum, What is your deal with region1? Region1 doesn't
matter? I know it's been a few months but if my memory serves, didn't
region1 replace the much anticipated (black and blue) rematch that was supposed
to happen last year at RES? Sports dominance is cyclical, I can
assure you that everyone in Region1 (players, coaches, parents, and fans) are as
committed as any other region in regards to competing and hopefully winning at
the highest level.
@binghamalum, wasn't it last year that Bingham got beat by a Region 1
team? That's why we let the football players and all others on the field do
the talking. Region 1 will produce a state contender, and I believe Syracuse
will be that team. As for Cottonwood, their QB had an amazing year last year
stats wise, and will look for him to be better this year, but last year, they
lost all the games that really mattered (Logan, Northridge, Bingham, Alta, and
Jordan), so they have alot to prove, regardless of their QB being a SEC recruit.
@binghamalumIt was only a couple of months ago you were declaring
Bingham a sure thing to win the state baseball title and saying they were so
good that no one else could beat them, they could only beat themselves. So how
did that work out for you?I'm gonna take my prognostications
from someone a little more unbiased, and rational, I think.
Before last year when was the last year a region 1 team beat Bingham? I think it
was the playoffs in 2004. I wouldn't be talking a lot to Bingham Region 1.
Probably won't get another win against em for another 10 years.
@SIRTIPSALot65The preseason love doesn't mean much, as PV found
out. Preseason "props" ought to go to the champ, but now that you have
what you wished for, better hope it doesn't come back on you. Homer has
some big holes to fill this year, and even though he has good kids ready to step
in, you never know until the game is played. Region Nine should be very
competitive again this year.
I have a feeling PV will be pretty good this year, Hurricane does have returning
starters but the stars are gone.
@markymarkBefore last year when was the last year a region 1 team beat
Bingham? I think it was the playoffs in 2004. They actually got beat
by two region 1 teams that year. Fremont in the preseason and shutout by Davis
in the playoffs.I love reading the same comments every year from now
until November about how great the Salt Lake and Utah county teams are and how
worthles and pathetic the Region 1 kids are. Same old same old...people just
can't get out of high school and grow up.
Hagatha,Thanks for repeating what i said 2004. 1 win and Zero state
titles since. No one is that impressed. Yes you shut out Bingham in 04. Score
I didn't shut out Bingham in 04, Davis High School did. And you need to
get your facts straight before posting on here because it doesn't make you
a credible source when you don't know what you are talking about...Davis 7
Bingham 0...that is not 3-0 so you are incorrect again. And if you can count,
you would see that they got beat by Fremont...another Region 1 school
27-20...hmmm...Fremont + Davis = 2. Where did you learn math? Let me guess,
Not too long ago Northridge was dominating 5-A and being talked about as
possibly being the next Skyline. Give the schools up north a little credit. I
also seem to remember Syracuse beating a talent laden Alta team in the playoffs
Region 1 typically has one or two good teams between all of the schools per year
who can compete with an average Alta or Bingham team. The difference comes when
you look at it over an extended period. For every average Alta or Bingham team,
those schools will have two or three very good teams who compete for state
titles. So while I agree that every year there is going to be a good (and
sometimes very good) Region 1 team or two you have at least one down year before
that school will be good again (typically).As far as the individual kids
in Region 1, they are some of the toughest in the state to battle against, they
play with a chip on their shoulders and oftentimes take on the personality of
their coaches like Syracuse does with Russ Jones and it turns into smashmouth
Thank you plyxply for posting a very good and truthful comment. I agree with
the comment and wish that others from down south could see things the way you do
with an unbiased opinion. Thank you again. You are someone who has your head
that was the start of binghams rise to powerhouse football, they
were not suppose to be good, and lost to davis on a 3rd down and 24, sweep that
two lbs missed tackles, it could of easily determined the state champ. 2005, undefeated and lost to mike hague in quarters2006 13-0 state
champs,i could go on and on but ill stop,Im just looking
forward to the upcoming season of fun filled games.
my favorite comments so far are wolfalum saying Syracuse is the team to beat in
Region 1 and the guy from Syracuse saying it's Fremont and Davis on top up
north....trying to put the pressure on the other guys, they all like to play
sleeper.Saw Clearfield has new turf, looks sharp.
I should clarify my comment above. Syracuse last year beat a very good Alta
team, Northridge beat an average to down Alta team. I'd be surprised if
Region 1 didn't win a few games again this next postseason, maybe even make
the finals, but if either Alta or Bingham turn out to be as good as they can be
it will be tough for anyone to beat either one.
Hagatha, you are correct. Davis beat Bingham 7-0 in 2004. The TD Davis scored
was on a 3rd or 4th and like 20. Fluke TD. You may want to look at what Bingham
did to Region 1 from 05-12. Brutal 7 year stretch. Most of the games below were
playoff games.05'33-14 over Freemont14-6 over
Northridge06'44-20 over Freemont35-10 over Davis07'42-6 over Freemont45-7 over Davis 08'49-21 over Freemont42-7 over Northridge09'28-8 over Viewmont38-3 over Syracuse 35-24 over
Davis10'51-0 over Viewmont 54-13 over Northridge
30-7 over Fremont11'47-13 over Layton Then
finally a 27-20 loss to Freemont. Congrats Region 1. Since 05, you
are now 1-16 v Bingham. Been outscored 607-186. That is an average score
A lot of those Bingham blowouts were with a running clock, second and third
stringers in as early as the second quarter. Keep in mind Peck has never run up
the score....well maybe 2 years ago v. Riverton. I remember them taking a knee
inside the redzone in several of the games I watched.
Might add that from 05-12, State titles:Bingham 3Region 1
