The Favorite: Joy Christian
The Eagles took 8-man football by storm last season as coach Brian Cole took over the program and led Joy Christian to an undefeated regular season. Joy was not challenged until the state title game where they ran into the brick wall known as Joseph City. Anything less than a state title in 2012 will be disappointing for this program looking to make the jump to D5 next season.

The Challenger: Joseph City
Joseph City as the challenger? Sounds strange to say. The 3 time defending champ lost a ton to graduation, including talented runningback Remington Baldwin. But Coach John Bryant will certainly be up to the challenge of reloading a team that has been heads and shoulders above the rest of the D6 for the past few years.

On the Rise: Scottsdale Prep Academy
In only entering their 2nd season of AIA football, Coach Will Munsil has quickly built the Spartans into a state title contending program. SPA has talent and speed all over the field at the skill positions. Junior receiver Matt Munsil might be the divisions most talented player.
