With the 2017 high school boys soccer season getting underway last week in what should be another fantastic season, the Deseret News has compiled capsules for every 5A team in the state with information on what to expect this season.

The region rankings are based on coaches' preseason projections. Every coach was invited to participate and submit information on their team.

There are five new head soccer coaches in 5A this year: Don Bastian (Westlake), Bewar Yousif (Granger), Matt Roberts (Lehi), Rafael Guerrero (Northridge) and Dominic Militello (Cottonwood)

Here's a region-by-region look at all 28 teams in 5A.
