On Sunday, October 29th, the PBR Utah staff hosted the Invite-Only 2023 Utah State Games at Snow Canyon High School in St. George, Utah. This event featured roughly 73 of the top prospects in Utah's 2024 - 2027 classes and allowed our staff an opportunity to get an in-depth look at the players in attendance.
