Here is the 2013 Division II, Section 7 all-section football team as voted on by the section's coaches:
TUCSON — Chaparral did two things early in Friday's Division II state final that no other opponent had been able to do against Salpointe Catholic this season: score a first-quarter touchdown and take the lead.

A year ago, Mesquite’s football team had turned in their uniforms and was about to go through the process of finding a new coach.
Chaparral may have racked up 421 yards of total offense, but the real story came on the defensive side of the ball for the No. 3 Firebirds, recording eight sacks in a 35-21 victory over No. 6 Marcos de Niza in the quarterfinals of the Division II playoffs Friday night.

Few entertainers have had a career like Joan Rivers. She’s filled in for Johnny Carson on “The Tonight Show,” hosted her own talk show, “The Late Show with Joan Rivers” and won a Daytime Emmy in 1990 for her work on “The Joan Rivers Show.”
Led by Tyler Whiley and Sean Paul Brophy, No. 2 Chaparral scored 29 first quarter points and led by as many as 59 en route to an easy 64-21 win over visiting 14th seeded Tolleson (8-3) in the first round of the Division I playoffs.
Chaparral is coming.
In only his second career start at quarterback, senior Chandler Fox completed 7 of 13 passes for 122 yards and three touchdowns to lead Chaparral to its fourth straight win and a 49-0 shutout victory over Arcadia on Friday night.
Following a whopping 83-yard punt, Notre Dame’s offense was pinned in its own end zone. A quick pass from Thomas Lehman to Christian Rodriguez earned a little room, and the Saints appeared to be driving.
Sean Paul Brophy, Elijah Castro and company were not going to allow No. 4 Chaparral to have a letdown after an emotional comeback win a week ago against Desert Mountain.
Falling behind 28-0 less than 15 minutes into a game is never a good idea.
It was late July, and perched in the football office, Chaparral coach Dave Huffine recalled seeing Desert Mountain's two best players, quarterback Kyle Allen and wide receiver Mark Andrews, on the Firebirds field throwing passes to one another.
Peoria Centennial and Brophy are going in the opposite direction right now.
One of the best ways to bounce back from a tough loss is correcting some of the things that led to being on the short end of the score.
PHOENIX — Facing a splintered gay-rights community, supporters of legalizing same-sex weddings in Arizona have pulled the plug on putting the issue to voters next year.
Erin Simpson and Warren Meyer discuss the proposal to allow same-sex weddings in Arizona at the launch of their initiative drive in June. The pair now say that effort is shelved, with the idea of instead pushing it for the 2016 ballot. [Howard Fischer/Capitol Media Services]
Not much was expected of Brandon Krcilek this season.
Josh Eckley and Mauriece Lee led Marcos de Niza to a pair of wins over powerhouse Chaparral a year ago. Eckley was back Friday night, and he brought a new backfield mate to frustrate the Firebirds.
It’s a lot of fun to watch the East Valley’s best go toe-to-toe throughout the season, and there will be no shortage of those heavyweight showdowns in upcoming weeks.

Spencer Marciniak, Horizon: 154 yards, 3 TD

Jared Schmidt, Basha: 125 yards, TD
Joe Storm, Basha: 122 yards, TD

The Chaparral football team looked so dynamic on paper that it was named the Tribune’s preseason favorite to win the Division II championship.
