A few things have emerged early this Summer as some teams are really showing what they are capable of doing.
The Dixie Flyers
Wow what an early showing. This team could compete with anyone in the state. They have some players that have been stepping up but they have a trio right now that just puts a lot of pressure on you.is dominating in the post and the way they can run sets to him on the block that allows him to get great touches and high percentage shots is important because it opens up shots for other players. is a killer out there right now with his shooting ability. Defense is a big plus as well as he ca defend any guard in the state. The addition of is big time as he was going to be one of the best 6A players in Region 2 next year but now he is at Dixie and he fits in very well. This quickly makes Dixie the team to beat.
Corner Canyon Chargers
This team might be deeper than some teams in the past, especially with a few new additions that have been added to the squad. Brody has been solid and he is doing everything from shooting, to posting to even bringing the ball up the floor.has been solid as he is looking for more shots now that they are more readily available. You have a sharp shooter in coming off the bench providing more shooting to a team that could use the floor being more spread for other players to do work. A lot of other pieces that will fall into place.
This team is tough. They can do so much on both ends of the ball as they have players that like to get after it like, and . holds it down in the paint and with the bigs. They run a 4 out 1 in series that allows everyone to get quality touches out on the perimeter and on cuts and dives. This team will be a new program in 6A but they will be able to hang with a lot of teams because they can slow it down or speed it up. They beat a solid Owyhee, ID team that came down to the last shot. Would love to see this rematch during the season.
On paper it looks like there is one clear favorite in 5A with Alta being as good as they are but there are a few teams that can play with them. Timpview is playing well here in the GWC. Springville is adding a new player here shortly and they could be in the mix, we’ve seen some good things from them in the past few days. Olympus isn’t here but they play winning basketball.
In 6A it might be a battle between Corner Canyon and American Fork. Do not sleep on Layton and Lone Peak they have pieces that will allow them to compete.
4A has a solid cottonwood but Dixie has a level that might separate them from everyone. Look out for Ridgeline and Orem.
