Saguaro, Chandler to meet in Week 4 of Arizona HS football season

Arizona high school football teams have begun releasing their varsity schedules. And there are some pop-out games that have fans excited.

Not just great matchups with out-of-state teams. But some great in-state showdowns.

At the top of the list is Week 4, when Scottsdale Saguaro and Chandler meet in a rematch of the 2021 Open Division state championship game.

Saguaro won its first Open title 20-15, ending Chandler’s five-year streak of holding up gold footballs at the end of seasons and its two-year Open Division reign.

Saguaro will travel to play Chandler on Sept. 23 with 2023 quarterback Devon Dampier back at the wheel and with big-play wide receiver Derik English back after suffering a season-ending torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee midway through last season.
