“De­fen­sively they’ll hit you. They come fly­ing up and they have some play­ers in the sec­ondary that want to hit you. The line­backer num­ber 3 (Thomas) is re­ally good and so is 42 (Woo).”

Pima has used a cou­ple of quar­ter­backs this sea­son, but fresh­man Brooks

Ringer has got­ten most of the reps. He has 1627 yards with 13 touch­downs and seven in­ter­cep­tions.

Most of the dam­age has come through the air with the Aztec’s lead­ing rusher only hav­ing 327 yards this sea­son.

Once the Mats fell out of the league ti­tle race Min­nick said that he wanted to start mix­ing dif­fer­ent play­ers in on the field. In­juries have lim­ited the scope

of the late-sea­son ex­per­i­ment, but he said some of the com­pe­ti­tion is help­ing.

“Mostly some of the line­man. A cou­ple of the line­man have got­ten shots,” he said. “We just want to keep them ro­tat­ing. The key with some of the kids is that if there’s no com­pe­ti­tion they turn off and don’t get bet­ter. You have to tell them that they need to get bet­ter, no mat­ter where they are go­ing.”
