Does this region bring home a state title this year? Is it really the toughest
region top to bottom? Counting state championships in the last 12 years no. Not
even close. Personally I think this region is more hype than anything. They
rarely win at Rice Eccles when it counts even when like last year, they have the
most talented and most impressive looking teams physically. That being said, I
will enjoy watching these teams slug it out during the regular season. Should
make for some exciting region battles.
I'd cut them slack Tenn. Region 6 is probably the toughest in 4a,they have
had at least two teams in the semifinals for the past 3 years and Highland did
win in 2010. I mean if we are going by most State Champs in the past 12 years
then region 8 would be the toughest, and we all know that's not true.
I think you have to give respect to Region 6.They have the best
talent top to bottom.If you go back the last 4 years...Region 6 has
a championship in 2010 and then runners-up in 2011 and 2013.For
East...if there was ever a year for then to win the championship...I think this
would be that year.
Brother Ben, interested to know your reasoning, why this season in particular,
is a year that East should take advantage of winning a championship, as opposed
to any other season. Do you feel that it is a rebuilding year for other typical
4A programs? East High School by that definition would also be in a rebuilding
phase. Most of their Varsity team will be made of underclassmen, a lot of
sophomores and even freshmen. East will field teams in 2015 and 2016 season,
that will rival their most talented teams they have ever had in the history of
their program. Your thoughts?
