Corner Canyon should be ranked higher, they have more talent coming back than anyone in the state. I expect CC will be the top team in the state, both 4A and 5A.

CC maybe should be up 1 more spot over Woods Cross. I think it's a bit of a stretch to say they will be the best team in the state for 4A and 5A.

5a behind Bingham is pretty wide open this year. Brighton, Jordan, Herriman, and American Fork will all field great teams with some great players returning. lone Peak and PG are going to be rebuilding a bit this year. LP has the talent but almost no experience. Davis and Northridge will be good teams as well. I'm looking forward to a great season.

@plyxply
No question Corner Canyon returns a lot of talent. However, there are other schools returning just as much or more: Bingham, Herriman, Timpview, possibly Brighton and Jordan (I know they have some guys returning that are excellent, however I'm not sure how many). I don't know how many underclassmen Syracuse played at the varsity level last year, but I know their senior class is pretty dang good.

Yeah!!! High School football is almost back.

I agree with Timpview at the top and East right behind them but Logan in the top five? They don't have half the experience back so there is no way they should be ranked that high.

I really doubt Bingham will finish the season unbeaten. They play nationally ranked Bishop Gorman in Las Vegas the 3rd week into the season. That's where the in-state teams will find Binghams weakness. I'm pretty sure it'll be with their DBs.

C'mon plyplx

Corner Caanyon needs to win something first before they get the accolades. Over Timpview? Winners of 7 of the last 10 State Championships? And over East? I would be happy with CC at 5.

Why didn't they rank any good teams?

Wolvie: Just like when they played the best team in Colorado last year and beat them right? As for the DB's, they have a corner and a safety returning this year from last year's squad. 1 of which was all state I believe. DB's won't be their issue. They may not go unbeaten this year. But I guarantee you that they will be there in the end.

I see some great games looming in every classification. Its great to see such interest and excitement for HS football. The season can't get here soon enough!

GoldenGrizz86,

So who are you refering to if these rankings are not good teams?!
Jordan, Brighton Bingham are all 3 of the best teams in 5A this year, and they all went to the U last year in the final 4, so I am confused what your worried about?!

I do like Timpview again, but Corner Canyon will be a team to look out for. I dont know what herriman returns besides there big two linemen,

Bingham might be starting 3 sophs on there O line but they are big dudes but well see how it goes!

Just excited for some football period!
Bingham wont go undefeated this year!

Not really sure why LP isn't in the top 5 after they have been to the U four years now. Regardless of the talent they return, they have earned the respect of one of the top programs in the state until proven otherwise.

Gunner: Valor Christian had one big time all-star, Bishop Gorman has 4 or 5 playmakers of the same caliber on both sides of the ball. BG has weapons everywhere. Bingham's defense this year won't hang with those guys.

Things are just handed to you @dchabc313. You need to earn a top ranking. The coaches around the league feel that LP is not a top 5 team. If they are, then they will prove it on the field this fall.

@Wolvie123.... You seem so sure of the results to this game. We won't know till this game is played. History shows that Bingham has and will contend and make this an interesting game.

Jazzer: you're right Bingham's history of the last game against a top 20 team (Trinity, Euless Texas) will surely repeat itself. When the game is played don't forget where you read it first :)

Gunner
South Jordan, UT

Wolvie: BG wasn't a top 20 team last year. They finished 66 Nationally! Start comparing apples to apples bud.

As I recall, Bingham really struggled against Trinity because they played by Texas High School Rules which allows for chop blocking (and Trinity was probably better aside from that).

Bingham probably does not go undefeated this year. Doing that once is tough, doing it two years in a row is nearly impossible. But as long as you play 14 games and win the last one, that is what matters. I'd not be surprised to see Jordan, Brighton, Davis, or Herriman knock Bingham off during the regular season, not to mention BG. But Bingham will be a factor in November.

Gunner: This years Maxpreps preseason rankings has BIshop Gorman at #13 . We're not talking about last years apples bud. I'm just saying BG will be a faster & bigger team than Valor Christian was if Bingham fans are thinking that's what they're up against in September.
