American Fork celebrates its 5A basketball championship win over Viewmont at Salt Lake Community College in Taylorsville on Saturday, Feb. 25, 2017.

The 2017-2018 high school basketball season got underway last week before Thanksgiving, but really ramps up this week with a full slate of games across the state. To prepare fans for the upcoming season, the Deseret News has put together capsules for every team in 6A. Every coach was invited to participate and submit information.

The region rankings are based on coaches preseason projections.

There are five new head basketball coaches in 6A this year: Johnny Caine (Clearfield), Devin Olenick (Hillcrest), Tim Turpin (Herriman), Lei Lolohea (West Jordan) and Brock White (American Fork).

Here are the 6A teams and players to watch this upcoming season.
