The Wolves are off to a great start with a pair of easy wins against Centennial and Buena. They now begin one of the toughest month-long stretches anyone could imagine, with Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco (2-0), Hamilton and Mountain Pointe all on the docket among the next four games. Bryce Perkins has played very well in his first two games at quarterback, while the team has found a gem in sophomore running back Chase Lucas. Star wide receiver Dionte Sykes caught two touchdowns in his season debut last week while fellow wideout Mitch McCulley also had a score after a quiet first week. Chandler (2-0) likely has the pieces to score, but the biggest question will be how it fares against St. John Bosco’s mammoth line. Bosco is ranked No. 4 in the country by Maxpreps and has few weaknesses. The Wolves may be hard-pressed to pull out a win in this one, but they are one of the few teams from Arizona that has the weapons to keep it competitive.
