Perry High School, ranked No. 6 in the High School Football America Arizona Top 10 statewide rankings, lost to Cesar Chavez Friday night but the bigger story was that the Pumas played without 30 players, including Louisville-recruit Chubba Purdy, the state’s leader in total offense.

According to Richard Obert of the Arizona Republic, Perry head coach Preston Jones suspended his star quarterback and others for violating “a team policy/rule.”

“Good kids make mistakes, it is part of growing up. The Team did a great job showing resiliency against a good Cesar Chavez football team. I’m very proud of how the entire TEAM and program responded to adversity last week. Looking forward to a distraction free week.”
