High school football: Loaded Pine View seeks a region 10 3-peat

When Dixie Excessive coach Blaine Monkres was requested if Pine View — winners of 14 straight area soccer video games the previous two years — was the area favourite once more this yr, he didn’t dance across the apparent.

“I feel Pine View is the group to beat anyplace,” stated Monkres.

Loaded with returning expertise, and a beneficiary of a number of proficient newcomers, Pine View heads into the 2021 season because the clear-cut group to beat in Area 10 — previously Area 9 however renamed due to UHSAA realignment.

There’s a little bit of uncertainty at quarterback for Ray Hosner’s group, but it surely’s not for a scarcity of expertise however slightly a scarcity of expertise. Hosner’s monitor report suggests whoever will get the beginning nod could have a really huge season.

Assuming all goes in keeping with plan and Pine View enjoys a third-straight undefeated area season, the larger query revolves round if this lastly is the yr this program goes undefeated within the playoffs?

Pine View is 0-7 all-time in state championship video games, together with a 39-33 loss to Sky View in final yr’s championship sport. Ball safety was a giant challenge for the Panthers as they turned it over 4 instances within the loss.

Regardless of the frustration of developing quick on the ultimate purpose, Hosner stated this yr’s returning gamers are viewing the expertise gained final yr as a optimistic.

“’They’re like ‘hey coach, if we didn’t have the turnovers we win, we wish ball safety this yr.’ They’re already setting their targets,” stated Hosner.

Whereas the expertise is definitely there to get the job achieved, Hosner stated he’s been extra happy this summer time in regards to the mentality of his gamers specializing in the larger image locally and never simply themselves.

“They’re targeted on service and we’ll nonetheless maintain enterprise and win soccer video games,” stated Hosner.

Profitable in soccer by no means comes simple, but it surely could be a little bit simpler for Pine View with the return of dual brothers Dominique McKenzie and Marcus McKenzie, nightmares defensively for opposing defenses with their pace and playmaking means at extensive receiver.

On prime of that, Keith Adams Jr. moved to St. George from Georgia the place he rushed for over 1,000 yards. The son of a former Clemson standout and NFL participant, Keith Adams Sr., he’ll present a giant 1-2 punch within the Pine View backfield with Ryan Jordan.

The battle behind Pine View in Area 10 may very well be fairly extensive open.

Over the previous three years, Snow Canyon, Dixie and Desert Hills have all taken turns ending runner-up down south. All three may emerge as Pine View’s prime challenger once more this yr, to not point out Crimson Cliffs which may make a giant soar in yr 3 because the college opened its doorways.

The slight edge would appear to go to Dixie, which has a good quantity of expertise again, most notably quarterback Bronson Barben.

He had a good junior season, passing for over 2,600 yards and 18 touchdowns, however Dixie coach Blaine Monkres expects a giant soar from Barben, which frequently occurs with second-year quarterbacks in his unfold offense.

“He’s a pacesetter on our entire group, he’s in all probability among the finest if not the very best quarterback I’ve had so far as only a pure man who can go. I’ve had some good guys who can run like Reggie Graff, Mike Sharp and Blake Barney and people guys, however Bronson can positively throw the ball higher than these guys can,” stated Monkres.

He isn’t as elusive as these prior Dixie QBs although, and might’t merely depend on his playmaking means to scrub up busted performs.

“We are able to’t make errors on offense, should be environment friendly,” stated Monkres.

Deseret Hills was pegged to complete third in Area 10 as new coach Rick Berry inherits a group that returns eight starters on offense and 7 on protection.

Berry is one in every of two new head coaches in Area 10 as Cory Ashby takes over as head coach at Hurricane.

Canyon View can be now not within the area after it dropped right down to 3A after the newest UHSAA realignment.

Maybe the most important unknown amount down south is Crimson Cliffs. The third-year college returns eight starters on offensive and eight on protection as coach Jaron Tate stated the group lastly has an entire roster of seniors, juniors and sophomores

The Mustangs have been aggressive in area with largely underclassmen final yr, however a yr stronger they may shock some groups in 2021.

Snow Canyon was projected to complete within the backside half of area play this yr, which might be a giant drop after ending second to Pine View final yr. It has some all-state caliber gamers to switch, but when it does a prime three end is definitely doable
