to get aligned correctly, aligned quickly,” he said. “We’re going to have to
tackle well, grind it out and expect them to go for it on fourth (down) a lot.”
Of course, Safford’s defense will have quite the task itself defending YC’s offense and the likes of
junior quarterback Gage Reese (3,875 pass yards), junior running back Ean Chavez (1,885 total yards) and senior receiver J.R. Henderson (1,691 receiving yards).
The winner of tonight’s game will face the winner of No. 3 Snowflake vs. No. 6 Sabino in the semifinals next Saturday in Phoenix.
