    Anyone that has watched Desert Hills knows that they earned their wins. It's no ones fault for injuries, Desert Hills has injuries too. Desert Hills has earned the number 1 seed by beating the teams they needed to beat. Dixie and Hurricane didn't win the games they needed to win, but are still very dangerous teams in the post season.

    I agree with R-9, DHHS is very fortunate to be the #1 seed. They were down 28-7 against Hurricane when the Tigers QB left the game. They also played PV without their QB. Since the return of their QB they have been a different team. How, I wonder, would DHHS fare against Hurricane or Pine View without their own QB, Ty Rutledge? It will be interesting to see a rematch of DHHS and Pine View in the semi-finals if they both make it. When you can load the box against the run because you know a team can't pass it's a lot easier to defend. That's a game I would really like to see.

    Here's my take on dhhs: hard fought match with Dixie, don't know what PV team showed up to play dhhs- Could have been the squabbling with coaches. They earned the Hurricane win although tigers best guard got a concussion and sat the rest of game, and qb/safety broke his hand. Lucked into Dixie losing to snow canyon. They are tough - but it was the perfect storm to share region and be 1 seed.

    I have been watching the DH teams for several years now. They always seem to play extremely hard and with alot of confidence. The QB (Ty Rutledge) is a very good athlete and will take their team deep into the playoffs. I believe we are all in for a treat as we watch the 3A playoffs. Spanish Fork, Stansbury, Dixie, Juan Diego and Hurricane all could be dangerous. Good luck teams.
