Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Judge in first round

Edward’s evaluation: An inconsistent team much of the season, the Red Devils seemed to hit their stride in the final month of the season. Even though a hiccup to Wasatch late in the year raises some eyebrows, Springville is certainly capable of making some noise in the playoffs, if Max Schreiner gets going.
