8/26/16 Football - Marcos de Niza vs Prescott

Cheryl Haselhorst/Staff Photographer High School football, 8/26/16. Marcos de Niza vs Prescott, final score Padres 44 to Badgers 23. Jesse Guzman, #2, picks up some yardage avoiding a Spencer Newnum.

These rankings are still very much in flux.

Gotta chance to see Chandler live. The defense made you shake your head, but they stood toe to toe with a perennial national ranked power.

So what do you do with them? I’ll leave them at No. 2 heading into the game against Pinnacle.

The second five in the overall top 10 is still a crap shoot. Perry is the only team of those five that we’ve seen with our own eyes. The others have looked good in winning games, but not much DNA yet to know exactly what we got.

We forge on anyway, and present the Tribune’s third set of rankings:
