    Flyers had a great run last year. But I just can't see them finishing first in the region like the DNews has them or even #2 like the coaches picked them. I have them finishing 4 behind DH, Hurricane and Pineview, with those 3 in any order you choose. And Snow Canyon may be hungry enough this year to take 4th and keep Dixie out of the playoffs.

    Yes Flyers return a bunch of players from the state championship team. But the difference between this year and 2012 is the guy who graduated - Blake Barney. With Barney gone Dixie has to replace him @ QB and find a running game, since Barney was also their leading rusher. Those are 2 big holes to fill with players who have little or no varsity experience.

    Seems unlikely to me that defense carry the Flyers. Dixie doesn't have the recent defensive tradition of DH, HHS and PVHS.

    Of course all games are played on the field and all comments made on this board, including mine, are meaningless.
