Key Team Projections:

There are teams listed above that have no kids registered at this point.  Not sure what that means moving forward.  If Delta UT, Longmont, Co, Air Academy, CO, and Skyridge, UT show up, or if Altamont adds kids to their line up, it will be a much tougher tournament.  If not, it is still a very good tournament. 


Uintah has a new look, Deets at 120, Ayotte at 126 and Gus Harrison at 132 make the Utes more dangerous. 


The rumored moves by the Titans at Syracuse are set for a trial run.  Can they make an impact?


This will be PG most complete team yet this year,  how good can they be?  Dodson at 152 is HUGE.

Analysis and Predictions:


106: Can Merkley or Sperry make it an all Utah Final against Morris or will one of the out of state guys have something to say about it?

113:  This could be a Colorado vs Wyoming Final. I think Freshman phenom Drew Lang might have something to say about that though. 

120:, Deets at this weight should win it at home.  Here is Warner's chance to prove himself. 

126:  Ingram vs Ayotte final should be crazy. 

132:  Gus Harrison could make it 3 in a row in the finals for Uintah?

138:  Oakley Ridge returns to a tough field, Metcalf, Proffit, and Rangleys Coombs are tough.  Can the Viking make the top of the podium in his return? 

145:  Kennedy from Meeker is tough, Cole Zorn and Cade Bowring should battle for a chance to take him on. 

152:  Jack Lang should have a break out weekend.  If Dodson handles the cut well he could be very good at 152.

160:  Moore might not be the #1 seed, but look for him to be at the top of the podium. 

170:  Looking forward to a Frost vs Johnson match.  Hopefully, that happens in the final.  If not look for the winner of that match to continue winning. 

182:  Gasser, Watts, and Blackburn lead the way for Utah.  A Wyoming State Champion and two Colorado Studs stand in their way. 

195:  Blake Mangleson vs Hayden Walker might be the tallest Final in T.O.C. History.  The Kemmerer star is tough, can Mangleson match him?

220: After Tuesday,  I feel sorry for anyone standing in the way of Maika Tauteoli.

285:  This could be the North Sevier show in the finals as the wolves have two very good big men.  Kay and Clark might have a bit to add. 

TEAM: It looks to be a Uintah vs PG showdown,  can anyone else make it interesting?
