Lone Peak is going to be the surprise team out of region 4 this year, if you can
even consider them a surprise. They completely manhandled Alta in a way that I
don't think many teams will this year. Their skill positions across the
board are some of the best in the state and their undersized line is doing a
great job for their offense. I think they beat AF and PG this year (sorry, but
AF is super overrated) while they will have a very hard time against Herriman.
Riverton will be a toss up. They will beat both Lehi and Westlake. I
don't know if they'll win region but they will make the playoffs and
pretty much guarantee themselves a quarterfinal berth because they're
matched up with region 2.
The Region 4 vs Region 3 argument is legit. Bingham was better prepared and it
really came down to coaching and experience in that game when the pressure was
on. That defense is one of the best theyʻve had (but not as good as the
2010 version) and won the game for them.AF was and is better than Brighton
as that game came down to coaching, which in this case was AF side blowing it.
Anyone with football knowledge who watched that game knows AF gave it away with
terrible clock management and play calling.After watching Jordan whip East
(yes, it was a beatdown after the first quarter), Jordan looks like they may
have a very good chance of beating Bingham. In saying that, the Jordan/PG game
next week will say a lot about the difference between the 2 regions.Lone
Peak just whipped Alta and they may not qualify for the playoffs this year as
the 5th best team in Region 4 where as Alta will clearly be the 4th best team in
Region 3 and still make the playoffs.By the way, the Miners will upset BG
this Friday 21-20.
The only statement was size does not a great team make! I'll give Herriman
credit, that O Line is legit. But Bingham just wore them down. That defense of
Bingham is crazy good! If Bingham's O Line can get it together, they can
be a very tough team to beat. I also think they will have their hands full next
week against BG. But I think their D can keep it competitive. So much for
that Herriman "Statement"!
Easy on Benzo, he is great. I love fans who stick with their team and never
loose hope. I also love people who are delusional and say things like West
Jordan is going to beat Alta or Herriman will State or that Region 4 is better
than Region 3.
Now if it was Highland, UT team then I would say 24 points plus victory for
Orem is terrible and one of the worst 4A teams in Utah. So Highland, ID will
probably win by 2 plus TD's
What about the Orem Highland Game? Predictions?
I think Herriman is prepared to make a statement this weekend at Bingham! Come
