This week's edition of The High School Highlight takes us to Peoria.  There you Liberty High School coached by Mark Smith.  Smith and his Lion's are becoming a dominant team in Arizona High School football.  One of the team's leaders is senior all state linebacker Chase Hulbert.

Last year Liberty went 14-2 and was the state runner up.  This year the team is off to an 0-3 start, but if you look at who they have played you can understand why.  They have played three of the state's best and held their own against them.

Chase Hulbert is in his final season at the school and is definitely the heart and soul of the defense.  Counting last season and this years first 3 games he has 137 tackles and 9.5 sacks.  Those are stats of someone who will be playing Division I Football next season.  Hulbert refers to himself as a motor because he keeps going and doesn't stop when he is on the field. 

Hulbert, who has been on Varsity since his freshman year, talked about his school's tradition of having pride in their community on and off the field.  That shows with his 3.5 GPA and his commitment to the brotherhood of the sport.

Hulbert has a goal of leading his team to a state tittle and playing college football.  These goals are very reachable for this bright young man.  He already has an offer from Adams State, but has not committed yet. 

Hulbert and the Lion's look to start working towards that goal of a championship tonight when they travel to Gilbert to take on the Perry Pumas.  It will be another tough game with Perry being unbeaten but anytime you have #35 Chase Hulbert leading your defense you have a great shot at winning.
