As we bid farewell to the 2013 football season; a crazy, cooky, memorable (for all the right and wrong reasons), let’s take a look at a few impact players. OK, more than a few, but despite being able to rattle off another handful’s worth, there’s no choice but to whittle an entire East Valley football scene down to the 10 guys who did it all better than most (or all) for the season. This wasn’t a year like D.J. Foster in 2011, or even Matt Guida in 2012, but it was a season in which so many shined. Here’s our select few Tribune Player of the Year candidates (in alphabetical order) [compiled by Mark Heller/Tribune]

PHOENIX — A new poll suggests that Arizona voters insist they're mad as hell and are ready to throw the current crop of bums out of Congress. But it remains to be seen whether the anger at government dysfunction carries through to next year's general election — and whether voters find the alternatives they are offered are any better.
