The breakdown

The Mustangs, who are used to competing in the state’s largest classification, return 16 of 22 starters in their pursuit of being king of the mostly Cache Valley region. Green Canyon will try to build a winner in its first season, while Bear River and second-year Ridgeline attempt to build off last year’s success.

The favorite

Mountain Crest • “We’re a lot stronger and deeper. Everybody is coming back, and our sophomore and freshman class coming up have really shown a lot,” coach Jason Lee says.

The dark horse

Bear River • With an experienced QB, more runners in the backfield beside him and some key returners on defense, the Bears could be a contender.

Brodie Martin, Sr., Sky View, WR; Creedyn Foulger, Sr., Mountain Crest, WR/LB; Tayden Fenton, Jr., Ridgeline, OL/DL; Kaygen Canfield, Sr., Bear River, QB; Chad Yorgason, Sr., Green Canyon, WR/DB; Brandon Dodd, Sr., Logan, TE/DE
