VX preseason football rankings: Division II

5. Cienega — The Bobcats were upset by Marana Mountain View in last year’s playoffs but should rebound. The front seven on defense should be a strength, and team gets QB Adriell Alvarado and RB Christian Nash back on offense.

4. Ironwood Ridge — Defending champions must replace wide swath of impact players, but coaching is top of the line and the players have bought in. RB Jake Vartanian showed flashes of dominance last year and should have a big season.

3. Centennial — Jalen Ortiz, Marcus Farria and others move on, but the Coyotes always reload. Dedrick Young and Matt Rodriguez lead new wave of Centennial standouts as they look to make another deep postseason run.

2. Salpointe — Talented QB Andrew Cota has two big-time playmakers in Cam Denson and Kaelin Deboskie. The defense returns plenty of talent as well. The Lancers could be labeled 1A alongside Chaparral as the team to beat in Div. II.

1. Chaparral — Offense should be loaded with WR Tyler Whiley, WR Izzy Simpson, TE Trevor Wood and RBs Emerson Carrethers and Elijah Castro while the defense won’t be far behind. The Firebirds look balanced, talented and ready to aim for another title after last year’s quarterfinal exit.
