Three new teams join the Super 10, the best football teams in the state, regardless of division.
But it’s still the same three at the top.
A look at azcentral sports’ Super 10 after Week 8:
FIND A GAME: Arizona high school football schedule
No. 1 Chandler Wolves (1) 7-1
Running back Chase Lucas returns this week for first time since Las Vegas Bishop Gorman to rev up an engine that already is running strong.
No. 2 Chandler Hamilton Huskies (2) 9-0
Hamilton, on a bye, will use this week to get ready for the Oct. 30 showdown against Chandler.
On the sidelines at Arizona high school football games:
No. 3 Phoenix Mountain Pointe Pride (3) 8-0
Offense was on overdrive last week with the defense still dominating.
No. 4 Peoria Centennial Coyotes (4) 6-2
The Coyotes have played their most difficult games and can use the next couple of weeks to get ready for their first parlay into the Division I playoffs.
No. 5 Scottsdale Chaparral Firebirds (5) 6-2
Experienced a bit of an emotional hangover from double-overtime loss to Centennial, but bounced back strong in the second half to beat late-season surging Peoria Liberty.
No. 6 Mesa Desert Ridge Jaguars (6) 6-2
Took Mesa Red Mountain’s best punch, then delivered defensively in the second half and came through in the clutch to remain in the Super 10.
No. 7 Mesa Skyline Coyotes (x) 8-0
Their biggest challenge comes Thursday at home against Gilbert Williams Field, which is trying to make its first big splash in Division II to climb into Super 10.
No. 8 Scottsdale Saguaro Sabercats (x) 6-2
Led by Byron Murphy, back in the Super 10 after getting bounced out early in the season when they lost two of their first three games.
Best of Arizona high school football:
No. 9 Paradise Valley Trojans (9) 8-0
Needs to lock it down better defensively and clean up the mistakes but still the team to beat in Division III, as long as QB Daniel Bridge-Gadd is steering the ship.
No. 10 Peoria Sunrise Mountain Mustangs (x) 8-0
First entry into the Super 10, driven by dynamic junior dual-threat QB Chase Cord, who has been slicing through defenses with a long string of routs.
