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

Phibbs’ prognostications: Viewmont is in a tough position against American Fork. The Vikings already lost by 22 earlier this season to the Cavemen. Have things changed or is a quick exit waiting?

I really like this article, it's fun to see all the stats and info in one place before the tournament. I hope you are right about the outcome, but Pleasant Grove has a hard road. Every single one of their potential opponents could knock them out. Lone Peak on the other hand is almost a an automatic for the championship.
