Great job Region 4! Great year so far. The 4 teams that are in will represent
well at state, we hope! Lehi came on strong this year, too. Not sure what
happened to AF? Well, yes I do know. Sometimes change, when things are going
well, can come back and bite you! Good luck to all schools going to state!
Can't wait for basketball.
Congrats to Herriman, Riverton, Lone Peak and Pleasant Grove as Region 4 Champs.
I was impressed by the heart of Pleasant Grove last night in their upset of
Herriman.Even though I would have preferred a win and the outright
region championship...this game was a wakeup call to Herriman at the right time.
Things will not get any easier...the road for Herriman looks like Layton,
Brighton, Jordan, Bingham. I would expect a win over Layton and then hosting
Brighton would be an exciting game.After last nights game...I firmly
believe Pleasant Grove has the ability to upset Davis and then give Jordan a
strong fight.The playoffs will be very exciting.
Neither Pleasant Grove or Davis will give Jordan a fight. And neither would
Herriman.Benzo we have been reading your comments all year long, the
only thing you have been right about is the playoff seeding which had nothing to
do with your personal opinion. How many "wakeup calls" does Herriman
need? They are an average football team capable of playing with the best at
times and capable of losing to the worst at times. Benzo they are a .500
football team this year. They have no identity, they play a game and lose 7-3
and in another where they lose 42-41. Who is this Herriman team? I'll tell
you. They are a mediocre team that is very very capable of going one and done in
the 5A tourney. Fortunately for them they are matched up with a mediocre region
full of these types of teams.It will be an all Region 3 semifinals,
assuming Alta can hold serve as the #4 seed in round 2. The other three teams in
Region 3 have a cake walk. 5A football stinks this year.
The Trib reported that the state seeding for this region would be decided by a
"coin toss". Not sure if that's accurate but it seems a bit wild.
I agree with Prep Fan 89, Region 3 will roll into the Semi and Finals. Region 1
and Region 4 match ups will be fairly even, it could go any direction; 2-2, 3-1,
0-4 for either Region. Both Mediocre Regions this year. Region 1 probably down
more this year, than Region 4. Can't wait until the official shedule is
Herriman did not play well last night they had some major mistakes with 2 big
turn overs on fumbles that cost them 14 points, as well as some interesting and
maybe not so affective play calling. As I have said before don't sell
Herriman short they could surprise all of you . They just need to keep their
hands on the ball no fumbles a little more creativity in plays and they could
be right in with the rest of the region for the playoffs.Hold on it should
Thats what I thought, isnt it that if there is more than two teams tied then it
goes to coin toss? When is the schedule gonna be released?
Pig Skin, nice to see you back now the season is almost over. What are your
predictions for the playoffs? Give us knowledge master!!!!!!!!!!! What are your
Wow football follower, really? 41 points and the play calling was not very
good? A TD on double pass, a great call on the last drive that is a TD if the
pitch is caught, a nice call on the wildcat jump pass for the 2 point
conversion, the screen at the end (terrible call on the hold). They put up more
points against PG than anyone has all year. Nice armchair opinion, have you
ever called the plays for a high school team? I doubt it.
Before last night's game I was nervous for a rematch with Herriman because
they were getting healthy at the right time missing most of their best players
in the earlier game vs Jordan. After the game not such much to be honest;
Herriman has its chances last night but couldn't put away P.G and obviously
lost. Herriman can be good at times but losses like these kill a team and for
tat reason Im not as nervous to play them. Not arrogant at all but if
Jordan's offense is rolling, plus their defense, which hasn't been
amazing this year but good enough to get turnovers then they can beat almost any
team in 5A
@Prep Fan 89 - From day one of this season I said that this would be considered
a rebuilding year due to a new coach and losing 13 starting seniors...3 of which
signed D-I Scholarships. As far as identity...Herriman has plenty of it: First
and only 5A school to make the playoffs its inaugural year, a 4 year old school
with 4 playoff berths, 3 D-I signees and 2 straight region championships. Not
bad for a new school in a rebuilding year.Last year when Herriman
played East in the playoffs...I predicted a close game and a win. Most posters
said East would kill Herriman by 21, 28 or even 35. In the end, Herriman lost
by 11. The funny thing is...of all the people that said we would get
killed...only a few admitted that Herriman was better than they thought. They
same held true for our game against Bingham. The #1 team in the state only
beating "lowly" Herriman by 13 points.You can't say
Herriman might be a "one and done" in the playoffs without also saying
they could "go all the way"...because in reality, both are very
#1 Herriman, #2 Riverton, #3 Lone Peak, and #4 Pleasant Grove is confirmed.Goaggies1my prediction for the first round only are Region 3 wins
all games, no brainer. Don't waste your time watching them. Region 1 vs Region 4 really a coin flip, so I will go with all higher seeds
win; 2 and 2. Best match up to watch because anyone can win, no underdogs.
My predictions.Davis over PG.Lone Peak over Syracuse.Herriman over Layton/Northridge. But Northridge will give the team they play
a great game.Riverton over Layton/Northridge.Davis gets the
short end of the stick I think, like Herriman did last year. Go undefeated all
year just to play a team that's 8-2 first round. Go figure.
Big Benzo, Corner Canyon won a share of the region title in their first year. So
is making the playoffs in your first season really that big of a deal? I respect Herriman High, but not enough to put them in a serious conversation
about who will win the 5A tourney. There are only 3 teams that I believe can
honestly challenge for it. Bingham is the obvious answer, and Brighton and
Jordan are the only other two that have enough in them to win it all. (Jordan
due to the fact they get a cakewalk into the semis - Brighton too)Syracuse can't be taken seriously in the real scheme of things, because
they play like Davis does. If you go into games hoping to move the ball 15-20
yards so you can punt and try to win the field position battle, you can't
beat teams that look at that mentality as "if you pin us on the 15 that just
means 85 years of offense the other way". Field position is not going to win
the 5A title, points will. That is why nobody in Region 1, 3, or 4 can be taken
PrepFan, that's how we do things in region 1. Field position buddy.
That's how you win games by letting your punter out punt the other guy. 3-0
score is fine by me. I remember 2 years ago when Syracuse played Alta at Alta
and used the field position game to their advantage. If I remember that right
Alta was a 1 seed and the Cuse was a 4th seed. Tell me again what happened. It
depends on your team and the weapons you have. There is nothing wrong playing
field position and good defense. A good offense wins games a good defense wins
championships. Just a mind set my friend.
Corner Canyon's season has been impressive. They won a share of the region
title, which is something that Herriman cannot claim. I think what makes
Herriman's first year impressive to me (not more impressive than Corner
Canyon, just trying to say why people think it was a big deal) is that Herriman
made the playoffs in 5A in their first year with an enrollment that would have
been a small 4A school. Both accomplishments are noteworthy and something to be
proud of by the respective communities, as they are both atypical for first year
Herriman was 4A for their first three years, this is their first year in 5A.
They have not won a state game (0-3) at the 4A level in that time, they did win
a "play in" game one of those years. Sorry, I am not that impressed.Corner Canyon will be dominant from here on out in football. Their
entire core are juniors, and their sophomore team is very very good too. Their
younger groups are also loaded with talent.@goaggies1 - Region 1
"field position football" might earn you an upset, but it won't win
you a title. Can you think of any Region 1 state champions in football in the
last few years? I can't. It did score Syracuse 2 points in the championship
last year though. But their awesome "D" yielded 58.I still
think Syracuse can beat Alta this year too, but there is no way on this planet
Region 1 is good enough to win a state title. I'll go ahead and say that
for next year too, Region 1 can't win one in football.
Check your stats, prep fan. Herriman played their first year in 5A in a region
including Bingham and Riverton, and faced Cottonwood in the first round of the
playoffs, a game in which Herriman led at halftime before giving way in the
second half. I am not sure why the negativity toward Herriman when. I was very
complimentary to Corner Canyon and giving them their due.
We need to take into consideration Herriman and Bingham was a 6 point game late
in the 4th quarter. When Herriman played Jordan it was much the same 6 point
game with 4 min. left without their senior RB's. Nobody's talking
about that but If Herriman takes on Jordan again i think Herriman takes
it.Bingham obviously is the team to beat and the sleeper is Herriman. Corner
Canyon is an up and coming team but lost to Westlake who was blown out by
everyone in region 4. It takes time to play competitive football in 5 A in the
competitive regions. Corner Canyon will have a more competitive team for 5A with
time. The funny thing about Herriman is they play a power style run game similar
to Bingham which bodes well over time. Herriman has a huge line and will reuturn
most of the offensive line.Does anyone know where there is a complete 5A
Yes prepFan you are right. The Cuse did make it to the championship over your
other Region 3 teams. As you guys beat on your chest and pose like a peacock,
region 1 was knocking off the rest of your region to get to the championship.
You havent watched many region 1 games this year except the ones you have seen
on TV. Your knowledge shows what you dont know about the top 3 teams. PigSkinFan
says the same thing. I can see what you are saying but dont fully agree with
both of you. I know you talk about the defense that gave up 58 points in the
finals. We got rolled. But that defense shut down your power teams to get to the
championship game. I have heard we werent that good last year but either were
your other region 3 teams. Sorry just fact. You also have 6 returning starters
back on that bad defense. 3 out of the 4 lineman are all returning as well.
These boys have been their before and you can count they will get there again.
Onward and Upward. Sound familiar? Go "Cuse"!!!!!!!
Herriman is a team of ups and downs this they can't quite get over the
hunch of beating the elite teams in 5A. Many coaches that I have spoken with say
Herriman's offensive coordinator is very predictable and has been very up
and down and there offense has had a ton of turnovers. Footballisgood- why are
you getting so offended when someone says that the play calling was sub par I
honestly don't think that's that bad. Heck there could be a lot of
other rude and mean things that could have been said. Lets not be so sensitive
on here people. Lastly good luck to all of the teams in the playoffs may the
best team win.
footballisgoodfootballfollower was just stating some facts why are
you getting offended? All he said was the play calling was subpar there is alot
of things that could have been said for crying out loud, and after speaking to
alot of coaches that have played Herriman they said Herriman's offensive
Coordinator is very predictable in what he does. Bottom line is Herriman is a
team of ups and downs this season they can play with anyone in the state and
then they look bad in other games. Look for Herriman to have a good game against
Layton and then it will be a showdown of power house football between Herriman
and Brighton. Best of Luck to both teams.Lets get these playoffs
Footballisgood: You may want to check your facts bud. Bingham has never been
in Herriman's region.
Gunner,Actually, in Herriman's year of existence in 2010, they
played in Region 3 with Bingham. They made the playoffs with the #4 seed.The region finished 1 Bingham 2 Riverton 3 Kearns 4 Herriman. West
Jordan, Copper Hills and Taylorsville did not make the playoffs as they all lost
to Herriman.Herriman beat Taylorsville in their first ever region
game and then funnily enough believed they were going to give Bingham a really
good game the next week, but it was 45-0 at half.
