    Run defense, especially in the interior, was Orem's Achilles Heel for sure. Prentiss Miller of Pine View chewed up Orem in Week 2 for over 200 plus yards and Herriman did the same gashing the Tigers with the run. Orem's defense had a great secondary and favored speed on the perimeter, but I always felt a team that could get after them between the tackles and play good enough defense would prevail.

    Coach Anderson at Orem was offensively minded in high school and it has translated to his coaching style. He wants the wide open offense because he was a receiver who wanted it fast and open, rather than tough and smash-mouth. D-wins.

    Man that run defense is bad. Orems coach should most likely focus on that next year
