High school football: Weber Warriors 2012 preview

Published: Saturday, Aug. 4 2012 8:56 a.m. MDT

The good news is they have a ton of experience; the bad news is the Warriors allowed an average of over 41 points per game last season. And in six of their losses, they gave up at least 41, including 50 or more three times. Obviously, there's plenty of room for improvement, and they feel like it's well within their grasp.

Coaches preseason Region 1 straw poll: Sixth

Deseret News Region 1 prediction: Sixth

Bottom line: When a team goes 0-9, obviously there's only one way to go — up. And Weber will definitely be much-improved this season. But a brutal schedule with non-league games against three 4A playoff teams from last year, plus a regular-season schedule against one of the toughest regions in the state, is not a recipe for success. The Warriors do, however, play arguably the three best teams in Region 1 — Northridge, Davis and Syracuse — on their home field. Chances are the Warriors will likely be much, much better this year, even if their win-loss record doesn't necessarily reflect their improvement.
