While everyone declares Region 3 the SEC region of Utah high school football with Jordan, Bingham, Brighton and Alta all lumped together, you can bet teams up North are feeling slighted again.

After all, a Region 1 team has advanced to the 5A state championship game five of the past six years, which includes Syracuse last season.

With Syracuse loaded defensively again this season and Davis expected to be improved, Region 1 is more than capable of crashing the 5A party at Rice-Eccles Stadium.

Is this the year of the elusive breakthrough?

Since Davis won the 5A title in 2004, Region 1 teams are 0-5 in championship games. That includes Syracuse's crushing 56-2 defeat to Jordan last season; Fremont losing to Lone Peak in 2011 and Bingham in 2010; Davis falling to Bingham in 2009; and Layton losing to Alta in 2007.

Morgan did just fine in 3A football and were a yearly contender for the championship.
