slot back Eddy Hall, who starred at quarterback last season -- return for the Mustangs. "Mo" had over 700 receiving yards and nine touchdowns last season, while Hall threw for nearly 2,000 yards and 18 touchdowns and ran for over 500 yards and eight more TDs. Jamison Webb will step in to run the offense at quarterback this year, and big junior Kyle Christiansen will anchor the offensive and defensive lines. 2011 record: 6-5 PLAYOFFS: Lost to Westlake 23-14 in the first round.
3. SKY VIEW: Junior quarterback Braxton Godderidge takes over control of the Bobcats' offense after starting two games there last season, and tailback Skyler Hunt and H-back Nathan Payne are being counted on make big plays for the offense with Cody Willmore, a two-year starter at offensive tackle, blocking for them. Ethan Dursteller, a rangy 6-foot-4 athlete who earned All-State honors at defensive end last year, returns to anchor the D-line and will also play tight end. 2011 record: 5-6 PLAYOFFS: Lost to Skyline 49-24 in the first round.
4. BOX ELDER: Shad Watson steps in to run the offense at quarterback, and running backs Kasen Flinders and Kyler Allen should be strong for the Bees. Linebacker Britton Gunter, tackle Joe Flores and safety Rasten Yeates will spearhead the defense. Box Elder suffers from a lack of size and experience this season, which may hinder them in their quest to climb up the league ladder, but tremendous team unity should provide strength. 2011 record: 6-5 PLAYOFFS: Lost to Olympus 17-12 in the first round.
5. ROY: Second-year head coach Fred Fernandes feels like the Royals are turning the corner after nearly two decades of losing seasons at the school where he once starred. Connor McGuire and David Hadley give them some experience in the receiving corps, and a strong sophomore class features quarterback Tyler Skidmore, flanker/cornerback Logan LaRose, tight end Cody Hobbs and wide receiver/safety Nathaniel Jones. Fernandes expects to contend for a state playoff spot. 2011 record: 4-5 PLAYOFFS: Did not qualify.
6. BONNEVILLE: Tyler Gladwell, a former star quarterback for the Lakers, takes over as their head coach after six years as an assistant at Davis High. Colby Bedford, Andrew Croyle, Brock Kap and Jaydn Peck can all contribute as running backs and receivers, and Wilson Atagi anchors the offensive line. A senior-laden lineup has ample playing experience and is eager to get the? tradition-rich Bonneville program back where it belongs -- in the state playoffs. 2011 record: 5-5 PLAYOFFS: Did not qualify
