The second week of the prep football season saw a lot of action both in and out of state on Friday and Saturday.
Desert Vista and Saguaro both came up short in San Diego during the 2019 Honor Bowl against some of the top teams in California, while Hamilton managed to stop Highland just inches short of the end zone to secure a victory in one of the most highly anticipated games last week.
As we head into the third week of the season, teams aiming to make the Open Division will begin to separate themselves for the rest, as even one mishap could cost them a shot at the state title.
