Outlook: This could be comparable to last year’s high-scoring matchup between these two teams.
Both teams can move the ball, and Paradise Valley has two big-time running backs. Charles Hubbard averages nearly 8 yards per carry, and he and Mike Williams have nearly 800 yards rushing between them.
Highland has bogged down offensively in the second half of two games — last week and in a loss two weeks ago to Buena. Quarterback Joe Sanchez has secured the job, especially now that Jeremy Fuhst has a broken thumb. Sanchez thew for a pair of touchdowns last week. Chasen Halcomb has joined Nuku Latu as a capable target.
Address: 4301 E. Guadalupe Road, Gilbert
Records: Paradise Valley 2-2; Highland 2-2
Last year’s meeting: Paradise Valley 37, Highland 35
