Here is the 2013 Division II, Section 7 all-section football team as voted on by the section's coaches:
TUCSON — Chaparral did two things early in Friday's Division II state final that no other opponent had been able to do against Salpointe Catholic this season: score a first-quarter touchdown and take the lead.
Of all things which can impact a football game's outcome, Mother Nature often isn't on the list in this part of Arizona, but it could be a significant factor this weekend.
A year ago, Mesquite’s football team had turned in their uniforms and was about to go through the process of finding a new coach.

Chaparral may have racked up 421 yards of total offense, but the real story came on the defensive side of the ball for the No. 3 Firebirds, recording eight sacks in a 35-21 victory over No. 6 Marcos de Niza in the quarterfinals of the Division II playoffs Friday night.
These matchups are inevitable. Whether sooner or later, a second helping is almost always required for a football team to play on.
Led by Tyler Whiley and Sean Paul Brophy, No. 2 Chaparral scored 29 first quarter points and led by as many as 59 en route to an easy 64-21 win over visiting 14th seeded Tolleson (8-3) in the first round of the Division I playoffs.
After lean years, Combs, Mesquite and Skyline are back in postseason, but see it as only a step in each program's respective climb upward
Chaparral is coming.
Football is — among so many things — a game of attrition, which explains why many schools struggle either suddenly or gradually. That’s happening everywhere around East Valley football programs these days, seemingly with more frequency than ever (at least it feels that way).
In only his second career start at quarterback, senior Chandler Fox completed 7 of 13 passes for 122 yards and three touchdowns to lead Chaparral to its fourth straight win and a 49-0 shutout victory over Arcadia on Friday night.

Sean Paul Brophy, Elijah Castro and company were not going to allow No. 4 Chaparral to have a letdown after an emotional comeback win a week ago against Desert Mountain.
Falling behind 28-0 less than 15 minutes into a game is never a good idea.

No changes to the top-5, but the Firebirds dominated Brophy on Thursday night and seem to have separated themselves as the main threat to Salpointe in the division. Quarterback Sean Paul Brophy has missed a few games in a row with a back injury but it hasn't slowed down the Chaparral attack.

It was late July, and perched in the football office, Chaparral coach Dave Huffine recalled seeing Desert Mountain's two best players, quarterback Kyle Allen and wide receiver Mark Andrews, on the Firebirds field throwing passes to one another.

One of the best ways to bounce back from a tough loss is correcting some of the things that led to being on the short end of the score.

No. 6 Marcos de Niza at No. 3 Chaparral (Div. II): In the big surprise of Week 2, Marcos poured it on Chaparral in a 56-45 win over the Firebirds, thanks to a 21-point fourth quarter led by (who else), Josh Eckley: 340 yards passing, 6 TD, 105 yards rushing and another score. The Padres were able to offset a couple turnovers because of their offense and a rotten night passing for Chaparral QB Sean Paul Brophy. Eckley remains the great equalizer, but Chaparral believes it’s now better equipped to deal with the Padres’ all-purpose quarterback. The Firebirds have been unstoppable since, and that’s where this game will be decided. Chaparral’s running game and variety of skill kids out of the backfield and at receiver are going to be tough for Marcos to stop. The Padres overcame a horrible week in seeing their coach be put on administrative leave, then beat recent-nemesis Tucson Ironwood Ridge a few days later. Stopping Chaparral, however, is another matter, even if the Firebirds haven’t played in a close game since the end of September.
Prediction: Chaparral 44, Marcos de Niza 31
The Chaparral football team looked so dynamic on paper that it was named the Tribune’s preseason favorite to win the Division II championship.
