Two teams from Chandler Youth Football will be spending the first week of December in Orlando, Fla., trying to take care of a little business.
Hard to believe, but the East Valley’s first football game of the season takes place this weekend, as Desert Vista and Palo Verde (Las Vegas) will tussle in the Barry Sollenberger Classic on Saturday night at University of Phoenix Stadium.
