It's a new week in high school football and this week if your team is practicing it's because they made it to the state playoffs. Some teams go every year like Hamilton or Centennial and it's just a matter of who and where they will play. Other's like Valley Vista and St. Mary's just barely got in but look to turn a few heads with an upset or two.
The first round has some interesting match ups such as Combs vs. Snowflake down in Division IV. Division III has an interesting match up of it's own when Tempe hosts Higley. There is sure to be a lot of scoring in that game. Division II has a handful of games that could go either way. They also have what could turn out to be the best game of the night when Westwood takes on Chaparral in Mesa. In Division I Brophy battles Perry in a battle of two sleeper teams. Also Westview travels to Mountain Pointe in a game that could see a whole of rushing yards between two of the states best running backs. Whoever you decide to root for this Friday will be quite entertaining for all of us high school football fans.
