September has not been one to remember for either team, but this could be Gilbert’s chance to get in the ‘W’ column. Both teams have struggled mightily every which way so far this season, but it’s been tumultuous around Gilbert moreso as new coach Tim Rutt tries his hand at running a program and turning the Tigers around. It’s been rough offensively, as the Tigers have yet to put up double digits in any of its four losses to start the season. After losses to Mesa and Poston Butte, the Mustangs eked out a win over Glendale Raymond S. Kellis two weeks ago, and an easy shutout over Phoenix Maryvale. Dobson has a bit more spring in the step after the past two weeks, but Gilbert is desperate, and the Tigers’ finally get a win as they brace for a b-r-u-t-a-l second half of their schedule...
Prediction: Gilbert 17, Dobson 14

Mesa district athletic director Steve Hogen graduated high school in 1977, and his football experience surely mirrored many others from that time period.
Outlook: When Tim Rutt arrived as Gilbert’s new football coach in February, he saw a demoralized group. The Tigers had just dealt with the highly-publicized and controversial firing of Leland Rodgers and were onto their third coach in three years. The participation numbers were small and morale was low.
We’ve hit the “dead” zone.
There have been highs and lows from the 2012-2013 athletic year.
By Tuesday night, both Gilbert and Mesquite high schools were expected to have finalized their respective football coaches in Tim Rutt (Gilbert) and Jim Jones (Mesquite).
Longtime football assistant Tim Rutt is expected to become Gilbert's new football coach, according to three sources with knowledge of the situation.
Why not start the season against a rival? Though with vastly different reasons behind the changes, both schools are beginning significant transformations to the programs this year in an effort to return to prominence. Mesquite hired longtime coach Jim Jones and is now in Division II. Gilbert hired longtime assistant (Hamilton and Basha) Tim Rutt after it fired Leland Rogers after one season and has tried to instill a more disciplinary approach. Both schools are mostly starting from scratch, but especially Gilbert which has to break in a new group of offensive skill position players around RB/DB Erik Hironaka, with Tyler Stephenson the new QB after transferring from Chaparral, and Alex Gerstner who transferred from Chandler. Mesquite has a solid defense (especially the secondary with Juan Giraldo and Jordan Robinson) but has a mostly new group offensively outside Paul Perry and Payton Haslam, but Gilbert’s offensive line figures to be a strength. The journey for both begins, but Gilbert’s size and depth might make the difference during the hot August nights.
Prediction: Gilbert 20, Mesquite 13
The difference between Chandler Hamilton coach Steve Belles’ first year and second year guiding the Huskies was one fewer win. A 13-1 campaign followed by a 12-1. That single discrepancy in record was not playing in the title game and hence not winning the championship.
