    Benzo, for real, enough with the spouting off. Let's just let the kids do the talking with their play, they should be fine. I too am excited for what could be a good year, but enough is enough man. Thanks in advance from a die-hard Mustang fan.

    My REPOSTED Top 10 Preseason 3A :
    1. Hurricane - Reigning 3A Champs, loaded with starters from last year. High scoring offense once again
    2. Spanish Fork - Offense almost entirely new, but with a great new head coach, look for them to be a threat
    3. Stansbury - Insane QB with stable full of running backs along with killer defense makes for a tough Stallion team. Not to mention insane depth in the program
    4. Juan Diego - Coach always puts together an dangerous team, can't be counted out. Will be looking for revenge on the Dons
    5. Dixie - Returns QB, and alot of talent from last year. Darkhorse of 3A IMO
    6. Pine View - Had alot of hype last year, but they have always been a danger in 3A, just got lumped in tough Region 9
    7. Delta - Small town toughness
    8. Morgan - Loaded with underclassmen, 4 returning RBs will score alot.
    9. Grantsville - Loaded with starters on both sides of the ball, offense should be better this year with returning QB and running backs. One of the best defenses in 3A to cause headaches, look for them to turn some heads
    10. Wasatch - Returns major contributors from last year. Another Darkhorse

    Look for Herriman to establish itself as one of the elite teams in 4A this year...of course it will be short lived since we will move to 6A in 2013.

    The special thing about Herriman this year is the fact that the seniors on the team have been in the program from day 1. The seniors remember having to practice at an elementary school and lift weights at a middle school. Pride and experience will be strong will this years team.

    The strength of this team will be the defense. The defense boasts 10 returning letterwinners, 8 returning starters and 4 D-I prospects. The defensive back field is probably the best in 4A and possibly the best in Utah.

    On offense, Herriman returns the state's leading rusher. The QB and FB are beasts that will be hard to bring down. The TE is solid and updgrades at WR bring height, weight, strength and athleticism that wasn't their last year.

    Look for Herriman to be at Rice-Eccles in November. The offense should score a lot of points and the defense will stifle most teams and create turnovers and points of its own.

    Exciting times in Herriman!!!

    My Pre-Season 4A Top 10

    1. Logan- With so many starters returning, it's hard to pick against the Grizz this early.
    2. East- Came seconds away from a State championship last year. The Leopards look like a near lock to make it back.
    3. Bountiful- The Braves have made it to the semi-finals two years in a row. Will they make it back?
    4. Timpview- How will the loss of Louis Wong effect the T-birds?
    5. Highland- The Rams are stuck in a VERY difficult region. We'll see if that helps or hurts them in the end.
    6. Herriman- The new kids on the block have high expectations this fall. How wil the Mustangs respond?
    7. Mountain Crest- last year was the first season MC didn't make it to Rice Eccles in 5 years. Can they make it back to play among 4A's elite?
    8. Skyline- What will the Eagles look like without the legendary Roger Dupaix pacing the sideline?
    9. Woods Cross- The Wildcats come in to the season with a lot of hype. How will they respond?
    10. Olympus- Can the Titans make it two region championships in a row?

    Pre Season 5A Top 10

    1. Lone Peak- The Knights earned this spot with an undefeated championship season last year. They are #1 until someone proves otherwise.
    2. Bingham- Always a tough contender. It should be fun to watch the Miners and Lone Peak trade blow for blow.
    3. Jordan- It seems to me that the 'Diggers bigest problem is always consistency. If they can stay consistent, they are my dark horse to win it all.
    4. Alta- Can the Hawks overcome an early first round exit from last year?
    5. Syracuse- The Titans are my pick to take home the title from the most balanced Region in the State.
    6. Davis- The Darts start off with a battle against Brighton. Will is set the pace for their season?
    7. Northridge- The Knights are in a TOUGH Region and start the season off with a very Grizzly opponent.
    8. Brighton- For some reason I have an odd feeling that the Bengals are going to make some noise this year. We'll see what happens.
    9. Cottonwood- Controversy plagued the Colts off-season. How will they respond?
    10. Riverton- The Wolves get be a sleeper. Should cruise by Hillcrest.

    Thanks George love to see the facts. Was wondering if I could get some information about San Juan High School as far as stats. If you could provide me with an email that would be great.
