With the 2014 high school boys soccer season getting underway last week in what should be another fantastic season, the Deseret News has compiled capsules for every 3A team in the state with information on what to expect this season.

The region rankings are based on preseason coaches' projections. Every coach was invited to participate and submit information on their team.

There is one new head soccer coach in 3A this year: Josh Wardle (Juab).

Here's a region-by-region look at all 22 teams in 3A.

Coach Comment: “I feel really good about this season. We return seven starters from our team last year. We have some young guys who will contribute on the varsity level and some solid player leadership. The boys have shown good commitment during weight training and conditioning and have been working hard since we selected our team.”

Nice to see some soccer coverage - and favorable spring weather for once is also nice for both the players and fans! A few corrections to the 3A list include: Dixie losing to Wasatch in quarterfinals and Pine View losing to Ogden --also in quarterfinal action last year. While Region 9 (I think Hurricane is going to surprise this year) with always strong Dixie is going to be good, PC will likely be back in the hunt again this year and will have a better than average chance at a region championship since their nemesis the last 4-5 years, Wasatch, has moved on to 4A. Looking forward to seeing these 2 sides meet next month. Good luck boys!
