    Bingham Alum,

    You are right, 2005 was a huge class. I don't know if any class will have the individual talent that they had across the board. Green played all 4 yrs at the U and Newbold all 4 yrs at USU. Not to mention Mahoney all 4 yrs at Weber St. Then tons of kids to Dixie and Snow. It was a big class.

    Bingham Alum,
    I didn't think it was necessary to list the best 2013 players by name. I said they have the potential to be the best this state has ever produced. Shumway has D1 basketball talent no doubt and he will play football. Ouia Massina (not sure of spelling) at Brighton High could play D1 basketball and he will play football. Race Parsons is a terrific player that can not be discounted because he will go to S.U.U.. It remains to be seen if these players will pan out as the best the state of Utah has produced but having watched these kids play, I wouldn't bet against them.

    @ scrappy do,

    I normally would give someone a break, but for JD no way! We have had to many comments from JD about hoisting gold trophies and how South Sevier is the best in every sport. Being jubilant and supporting your team is one thing but JD goes a little too far.

    South Sevier isn't ranked nationally because they have never played a national schedule. No one outside of southern Utah knows who they are. LP has played all over the country against top talent. When you get outside Utah, the athleticism takes a huge leap often times. SS will be a great team in Utah, but it's tough to say they could compete nationally, or even in a higher Utah classification.

    It is nice to see a Utah team getting national recognition. Lone Peak, love them or not, you have to give praise to Coach Lewis for building an impressive program. Some of Lone Peak's unheralded players like Toolson and Shumway just add to their depth and it will be interesting to see if another team in 5A can hang with them this season.
    The class of 2013 is loaded with talent. Arguably, the most talent this state has ever produced. For example, Brandon Miller (Brighton) and Parker Van Dyke (East) grew up playing on the same AAU teams as Emery, Haws, and Mika.
    High School basketball fans have a lot to look forward to this season. If a team can upset Lone Peak it would be a "Hoosiers type" experience for the school that pulls that off

    They will be considered for a ranking. They will be #1 in 2A when the first rankings come out.

    I know it is reality that I can't expect the South Sevier community to support the rams the way I do. What I was saying that any team that only loses one game in two years and has D1 prospects should be considered for a ranking. I am not sure why ram fans would choose to bash me instead of supporting. Believe me, I know the SS community.

    Great news for the Cougs to get 3 players from the #6 HS team. Now if we could just get 1 player from the #1 HS team. Collisworthworth home from his mission next year. Isaac Nielson will join the team next year. Jordan Chatman coming soon. The Cougs are a Top 25 BB program for many years to come.

    Give JD a break, SS has good players and they should be proud as heck to have players moving to the next level. That's a big deal for a small town school. He is just jubilant ! Just like all of you are that Obama got himself reelected !!

    @ JD Books

    SS does have some talent but lets get real, your best player is going to go to SUU. That is great and I am sure that Race will have a spectacular career their and be lucky enough to get his education paid for but it is not even comparable to Lone Peak who already has 3 starters signed to BYU. I think that Austin may have a chance to play ball at the collegiate level somewhere but probably not D1 level. SS will most likely dominate 2A again this year and on any given night could compete with bigger schools but not on a every night basis. Please get a reality check before basketball season starts!

    THREE D 1???

    Race parsons going to SUU is nothing! Woo look out for SUU athletics!
    Going to cedar City for sports is like going to barry your own grave in a town where.... No one cares! ha

    I realize JDBooks is a fictional character that has no credibility or validity to anything he (or she) posts so I even hesitate to respond to such an assinine comment but let's make one thing perfectly clear, all those affiliated with the South Sevier community know that South Sevier cannot compete at a 4A or 5A level with any consistency let alone be ranked nationally or even locally. South Sevier does not have three DI athletes and they will be lucky to compete within their own schedule this season. I urge all bloggers to please ignore JDBooks. He (or she) does not speak for the real South Sevier community.

    It's a shame that South Sevier isn't ranked, especially with their recent success and three D1 prospects.

    They play in the Chicago Elite tournament December 1st against # 11 in the country a team from Chicago.

    To bad that They wouldnt play against Jabari Parkers team who is also in the tournament.

    Hopefully they just keep firing away and making buckets!

    This is good for Utah.
