Mark Andrews isn't like most high school receivers in Arizona, not at 6-foot-6 with his speed and agility. But even though the Desert Mountain junior receiver didn't play football until his freshman year, he, like a majority of wideouts, never caught a Hail Mary pass before.
Call it an awkward reunion. Here it comes again, the eternal question as to whether teams are at an advantage or disadvantage a second time around this season.
The 2012 season began eerily similar to ‘11 and ‘10 for Mountain View: A struggle. The Toros were pushed around by Desert Mountain’s offense during a 49-28 loss to the Wolves in Week 1. Desert Mountain both ran the ball with moderate success and got big plays from the Kyle Allen-Mark Andrews passing duo early on. Mountain View fought back in the middle two quarters but a defensive touchdown sealed the win for Desert Mountain in the fourth quarter.
Putting their past behind them, the Mountain View Toros are rushing into the postseason after a one-year hiatus with a little momentum.

Despite Mountain View's rout of Skyline last week, head coach Chad DeGrenier was looking Friday night for something that had eluded his team early in the season: a fast start.
