High school football: Woods Cross Wildcats 2012 preview

Published: Tuesday, Aug. 7 2012 12:23 a.m. MDT

Deseret News Region 6 prediction: Fourth

Bottom line: It shows the strength of Region 6 that Woods Cross is suiting up several next-level players this season but still remains outside the projected top three teams in the league. The fact of the matter is hype is just that — hype. Until results are proven on the field it’s easy to get caught up in commotion. It’s like buying a brand new cell phone because everyone wants it, but eventually it turns out to be a chronically defective model. It’ll be interesting to see if the Wildcats can live up to the expectations; the potential is certainly there — no one is arguing that. But for now Woods Cross is still unproven.

Felt’s Factoid(s): When Kitt Rawlings rushed for 423 yards in a game in 1989, no one knew if that was a state record or not — prompting research that led to compiling a history and records of Utah prep football. Incidentally, Rawlings missed the record by 11 yards and now ranks third.
