    We will see how good Alta is in 1-2 years. Right now their sophomore team and freshman team have combined for a total of 1 win this season. Ouch! However this year's team is loaded to make a run at the title.

    From a fan in West Jordan they predict Alta will fall to middle of the pack. It would be awesome to see a WJ football that gets to the middle of the pack some year. Alta will be down next year, but trust me, Alta will find ways to win, the coaches they have are too good. Van Orden as the OC will be an attractive element to kids all over the valley who like to play in a spread offense.

    We will find out how good Coach Barker really is after this year when he is dealing with an even playing field. These past few years that 500+ student advantage over the other schools in the state has been nice, hasn't it? My guess is he won't stick around because the cupboard is as bare as it has ever been at Alta.

    All of you Alta fans that have enjoyed the huge advantage in football and basketball are in for a real awakening after this year. In fact you'll see Alta as a middle of the pack athletics school in all sports from here on out.

    Coach Barker continues to do great things at Alta. One of the local colleges should seriously take a look at him to join their staff. I look for Alta to go far in the state playoffs this year!
