This region has produced a state champion in five of the last six years, and there’s little reason to think that will change this season. Dixie, Desert Hills and Pine View are the top dogs, but expect a battle for the final playoff berth.
Desert Hills • “Our sophomore class as a whole is pretty deep and talented. They will come in and everyone will get an opportunity to play and show what they have and make an impact,” coach Carl Franke says.
The dark horse
Dixie • “It’s just about calling the next man up and being ready when your name is called,” says coach Andy Stokes.
