Pima vs Bagdad at Gilbert Christian HS
Great early season matchup between the consensus (in either order) preseason #1 and #2 for D6. The winner of this game will likely hold the #1 ranking throughout the regular season.
Superior at Duncan
Superior returns everyone. Duncan loses four year starter Merrell. On paper, the Panthers have edge.
Arizona Charter at Fort Thomas
Great matchup for both teams.
Gilbert Christian at St. David
Another great matchup for teams with similar styles.
Window Rock at St. Johns
Former SD, Benson, and Buena assistant looks to bring some fire to the Fighting Scouts, but Johnnies should still have the edge.
Canyon State at American Leadership
Charter league team leads off by hosting an unpredictable by normally talented AIA team.
Benjamin Franklin at Miami
Another charter taking on an AIA school. No idea on this one.
Tuba City at Page
I don't know or remember much about these teams. Anyone?
Hopi at Alchesay
Yuma at Parker
Does Yuma have the best public HS football team in Yuma? Parker should still beat them, right?
Blue Ridge at Sahuarita
Good matchup here too, probably. BR down and SR up.
Show Low at Williams Field
Like last year, a big test out of the gate for Cougars, and by no means an easy lower division game for Black Hawks. WF should win, but who knows? It was close last year.
