JD Fan to the Heart..

@southpride- This is the first game I've been really nervous about all year. As much as I would love to see hurricane beat jd, they are the one team that I am sure hurricane will never dominate. I can only hope that hurricane gets far enough ahead to withstand jd's notorious game ending drive.

Go tigers! Good luck!!!

@Southpride...Nobody dominates JD and nobody dominates Hurricane. Both teams are so good, every year, that it just doesn't happen. One team may lose by a touchdown or so occasionally, but neither team has been dominated in a long time. The last time Hurricane was dominated, it was by Riley Nelson's Logan team in the playoffs and, even then, Hurricane gave Logan the toughest test in the tournament.

@Tigerpride and lonzo

I hope you two can make it to the tailgate.I dont think southpride56 has followed the rivalry of JD and Hurricane that much.Its going to be a very close and good game (base on past games play against each other) the team that controls the clock an has the least mistakes WINS.IMO the team that wins this game takes state..good luck to both the Eagles of JD and the Tigers of Hurricane.

JD FAN

That puts QB Lloyd at 42 TD's and 5 Int's to lead the State in passing.

WR Raymond at 17 TD catches to also lead the State....

Combined with a great OLine, a nasty defense, and many other playmakers on Offense....

I know people look at East...but Timpview is the team to beat.

Especially with their experienced coaching staff that has won 6 or so state championships already.

Should get interesting from here on in....

Alta @ Syracuse will be the game of the week, for sure! I’ve been saying all year that Syracuse is the team to upset Jordan, IF they can get past Alta. Both deserve their high ranking, that’s for sure.

Strength of Schedule
Alta 9-2: Timpview, Bingham, Olympus, Riverton, Jordan, Brighton, Don Bosco NJ, Copper Hills, West Jordan, Cottonwood, Riverton. Tough schedule, maybe toughest in the state. Losses coming to #1 Jordan and National Powerhouse Don Bosco.
Syracuse 10-0: Desert Hills, Skyline, Riverton, Box Elder, Davis, Layton, Northridge, Freemont, Weber, Viewmont. Played 3 decent teams and 1 good team (N-Ridge), and went undefeated.

Go Hawks!

Offense and Defense
Alta:
Offense - Widely accepted as the best passing game in the state, with Chipper Lucero leading 5A in passing yards. His targets include Ammon Barker, who leads 5A in reception yards, Harrison Handley, a Utah commit, and Mack Richards and Logan Harrison. Alta’s weakness is their running game, although that has improved in recent games.
Defense – After struggling early in the season, Alta’s first-string defense hasn’t given up a touchdown in the last 4 games, with the exception of a kickoff return TD by Copper Hills.
Syracuse:
Offense – Boasts a strong and balanced pass/run offense. They’re able to run the ball, or rely on QB Anderson’s ability to find one of a number of quality receivers. Anderson is probably the 5th best QB in the state this year, behind Kafentzis, Lloyd, Falk and Lucero.
Defense – Syracuse has the best defense in the state. Period. With 4 shutouts on the year, and only 70 points allowed total, they could be winning games even if their offense was half as good as they are.
Offensive edge to Alta. Defensive edge to Syracuse.

Go Hawks!

Alta is out for revenge against Syracuse for the first round upset last year, which is an edge that Syracuse counters with their home field advantage. Both have a lot to prove and everything to lose. I expect a close game, with one team pulling ahead in the fourth quarter. Final score, Alta 21 Syracuse 17.

Go Hawks!

I pick Syracuse over Alta, not just because i go to Syracuse, but because defense wins championships. And Alta will be a challenge but i think people are underestimating how good Syracuse's D really is.

South Jordan, UT

I love all the talk about Syracuse Defense!

They have not played one Dynamic Offense yet this entire year people!

Northridge is about to lose to Jordan by 30 points! Thats been there toughest Game all year

They have allowed 14 points all year as there highest allowed to a game,
those 3 teams, Box Elder, Northridge, and Davis!
All 3 of these teams are going to Lose this week!

So Im still very hesitant on how good this Defense is! I liked what I saw last friday on KJZZ but I mean seriously I already mentioned Binghams 8th graders could of beat that Viewmont Team.

But respect is given to this Syracuse team! but I mean seriously here is Salt Lake Valley football, and Alta this could be there last year of really good football, because guesss what people.....

The new Draper high school opens, and they already have kids saying there not going to ALTA anymore, Brand New high school, WAYYYY nicer then Alta, so there sports will take a HUGE drop the next few years!

Alta has alot on the line in this game!

Either way both Syracuse or Alta LOSE TO BINGHAM next week!

I will pick Syracuse as well. I have watched both teams this year and just feel Syracuse is better rounded with offense and defense. I saw Alta play agaisnt the boys from Jersey and there are some areas that can be exposed. I know Syracuse has a few areas that need to be worked on. I have watched Alta running game against Riverton on friday. Please keep your same running game you will be fine agaisnt this defense. You have two great receivers in Ammon Barker and Harrison. Im more scored of Barker. He is a stud. Handley is just as scary. Syracuse plays well together as a team Not one player thinks he is better than the next. I also saw the size of Alta's line. They are college size boys, they are big. Syracuse's line defensive and offensive can handle their own. Syracuse has no returning sarters at all on either line. I know people talk about their schedule and how week it was, but no returning starters. Are you kidding me, they should have gotten beaten by someone if they are week. It starts up front. Syracuse is well rounded in all aspects. Go Cuse.

This is the problem with not seeding the teams for the playoffs, to many potential Semi Final or Final games to early.

Alta vs. Syracuse

Northridge vs. Jordan

Hurricane vs. Juan Diego

Not to mention, Timpview vs. Logan which turned into a blowout, or East vs. Herriman, which for the second game in three tries East DB's were exposed with another 300 yard pass game.

utahbruin,

WE know the playoff system is bad, but when you have 4 regions in 5A, and 5 region is 4A you need a simple method to do the playoffs in Utah.

Thats why we see 2-7 teams make the playoffs, we dont know befor the season who wil be good and the playoffs are put together before the year even begins!

remember 3 years in a row, Bingham vs Alta in the Semi's??? then either team went on and easily won the state title.

Now to your potentional final and semi final games
The only one I can agree with is Juan Diego Hurricane

Because Jordan will destroy Northridge,
Alta and Syracuse both will lose to Bingham!

Jordan loves how no one talks about them all year.

Do we forget they are the best team this year, Talent all around, There line is all going somewhere next year.

This is Jordans year to Lose in my opinion. (If you dont stop the run which no one has done yet) they possibly could lose, but they make throws easy for Kafentzis,

4A I think Timpview Wins state, even after all the controversy.
3A is Juan Diego of course.

To all the Non Believers!

Binghams the #2 defense in 5A!

Behind Syracuse only, and Binghams schedule is wayyyyyyyy tougher,
Alta-17 loss
Lone Peak-21 loss
Valor Christian 20- win
Cwood twice 13, 14-both wins

I wanna see what a good offense can do against Syracuse really bad.
