Beginning Friday, the Standard-Examiner presents its new ’21 on 21’ series, which will feature 21 previews covering all 21 area football teams.

For the next 21 days in the sports section, there will be a feature story on one of the high school football teams from the Standard-Examiner readership area as they prepare for the 2014 season.

The first game of the season, between Layton Christian and four-time defending 1-A state champion Duchesne, is on Thursday, Aug. 21.

Among the storylines heading into the 2014 season that will be highlighted in this series include:

* Syracuse tries to stay competitive in Region 1 despite a mass exodus of talent

* Clearfield tries to rebound under new head coach and former NFL player Andre Dyson

* Roy tries to use a wealth of experience to make a deep run in the state tournament

* Davis tries to continue its success despite the sudden departure of 13-year head coach Ryan Bishop



* Mountain Crest tries to rebound after surprisingly disastrous 2013 season

* Morgan tries to reload despite only two returning starters from last year’s state semifinal team
