NEW THIS WEEK
YUMA - The No. 14 San Tan Foothills football team was right with No. 3 Yuma Catholic for a quarter.
No. 5 Peoria at No. 4 Queen Creek (Div. III): Quietly, perhaps, Peoria is one of the few undefeated teams left in Arizona (Mountain Pointe, Salpointe Catholic, Desert Edge and Bagdad), so the Panthers’ No. 5 seed comes from having the lowest strength of schedule rating (regular season) in Div. III. The Panthers are extremely young in their starting lineup, but hammered Peoria Bradshaw Mountain, 50-23, last week. This, however, is a bit different. The Panthers haven’t seen a running game or defense on part withe Queen Creek this season. While Matt Guida isn’t seeing the field much on offense because of him hamstring, Weston Barlow (pictured) is back running the ball effectively for the Bulldogs, and Bryce Dobbs was efficient throwing. The trenches is where this game will be won, and where Queen Creek holds the advantage. It’d take a lot of turnovers for Peoria to shut down the Bulldogs.
Prediction: Queen Creek 34, Peoria 20
It was a lethal, and telling, combination that Desert Vista has come to know all too well this season.
Businesses and individuals were honored Wednesday for their work to eliminate underage drinking and substance abuse by Mesa youth.
There were plenty of headaches due to the increase in football freedom games during the offseason.
Peoria Centennial and Brophy are going in the opposite direction right now.
Score one for the throwback power running game in Friday night’s style clash between visiting Basha and Peoria Centennial.
The move up from Division III to Div. II continues to go smoothly for Campo Verde, as the Coyotes cruised to a 37-13 victory over Thunderbird Friday night in Gilbert. The Coyotes have outscored their opponents 139-19 on the season, on their way to a perfect 3-0 mark.
It’s a lot of fun to watch the East Valley’s best go toe-to-toe throughout the season, and there will be no shortage of those heavyweight showdowns in upcoming weeks.
The weather only delayed Queen Creek’s run to a second victory to start the season – although this one was over a Division I team and the Bulldogs had to do it without head coach Joe Germaine and finished without all-star Matt Guida.
YUMA - The Tempe Prep football team was threatening to score what would have been a meaningless touchdown in the final minute of its game at Yuma Catholic on Friday.
The Chaparral football team looked so dynamic on paper that it was named the Tribune’s preseason favorite to win the Division II championship.
Outlook: It’s been a struggle for the Apache Junction football program the past couple seasons. There have been four coaches in the past four years and declining enrollment at the school has sapped the football team of its depth. Last year may have been rock bottom, as the Prospectors went 1-9 and were beaten soundly by the majority of their opponents.
Sci-fi movies, we all know, create unlikely heroes, and this summer's no exception.
Sometimes a shift is so gradual, its effect isn’t realized until an event forces retrospection.
A better title for this film might have been "The History of Apple Computers."
Outlook: The Thunder will always have size, talent, quality coaching and expectations. It's all there again, but there isn't much starting experience to go along with it. The senior class is already tired of hearing about how this could possibly be a rebuilding year. They'll do their best to make sure the standard at Desert Vista stays the same. If it does, then the Thunder could be one of the surprise teams in 2013.
Outlook: Two years ago, a large collection of talented sophomores were thrown into the fire at Highland. The Hawks had gotten off to an 0-5 start, and with little chance of making the postseason, coach Pete Wahlheim figured it was time to turn the page and evaluate his youngsters.
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.
Of all the movie villains we've met lately, few are stranger than Delacourt, Jodie Foster's evil, white-blonde, power-suited and power-hungry defense official in "Elysium," the much-awaited but ultimately somewhat disappointing new film from director Neill Blomkamp.
