Week One Game Previews

A ton of out of state match ups highlight this week's games

Game of the Week

Chandler at Bishop Gorman (Sat.)

* Two teams both ranked in the top ten in the country, both loaded with division-one players, both defending state champs, game on ESPN. How could this not be the Game of the Week?

Games I will be attending

Saguaro v. Centennial at Glendale Community College (Thurs.)

* Both are defending state champions and both move up a division. The game is expected to draw a large crowd, thus was moved to GCC. Game also will be on Cox 7. Saguaro won big versus Valley Vista last week while Centennial played a good Long Beach Poly team tough. Both teams are loaded with D1 talent in the trenches. This game has a ton of hype.

San Tan Foothills at Joy Christian

* Former Saguaro head coach John Sanders is back at the high school ranks after spending some time at Arizona State. They face a very good Joy Christian team that is led by QB Matt Mitchell and WRs Isaiah Goodspeed and Dujuan Lawrence.
