    I doubt that Alta would move down a classification as success is taken into account into the football classifications now. I also doubt that Bingham would stop playing Alta even though they are in 4A. To me the "playing down" idea is a farce. The best 4A teams are comparable with the best 5A teams and it shouldn't make a difference.

    Alta only has 62 varsity players, but from what I've heard they have a great group of sophomores and the younger groups coming through will be very good.
    New OC and DC as well for the Hawks, I'm interested to see how the offense looks now that Harrison is calling the plays. I think the Hawks will surprise some teams but they have a brutal schedule.
    I've heard Alta will move down to 4A, but I sure hope they stay 5A because I think they'll stay competitive regardless of the lower numbers and I love the Black and Blue rivalry.
