EDITOR’S NOTE: This is one in a series of previews of Utah’s high school football programs. They will run throughout the summer leading up to the 2014 regular season, which begins Aug. 21.

Pleasant Grove Vikings 

Pleasant Grove will hit the gridiron this year with a young team, noteworthy for its strong junior group. One year after finishing in a four-way tie for the Region 4 title, the Vikings will be looking to take that next step.

Last year » 9-3

Key returner » Demetrius Davis is a soon-to-be three-year starter, who will be anchoring the Vikings’ line as he moves over to tackle for his senior season. 

Players to watch » Junior Jacob Doman is Pleasant Grove’s playmaker on both offense and defense. He’ll start at both receiver and cornerback. Linebacker Dallin Pili is also expected to contend for all-state honors.

Biggest hole » The Vikings will have to find a replacement for all-stater Jeremiah Evans, who threw for over 2,500 yards in 2013.

For the record: Jeremiah Evans is NOT replaceable. 

Of course, I would not have him anywhere else in the world than where he is right now in San Antonio, Texas serving a LDS mission, but I do miss him like crazy--the way he makes me laugh, lifts every one's mood with his smile and positive energy. He is a champion on and off the football field!
