Yes, the calendar says it’s January 14th, but Arizona high school football fans are getting a sneak peak of what lies ahead in 2016. Last week, state athletic directors drew-up and released all of the Class 6A schedules.
Headlining the 6A schedule is an August 26th match-up between Chandler and Corona Centennial (Corona, CA) at a site to be determined. Last season, Corona Centennial finished #5 in the final High School Football America National Top 25. The Huskies were ranked #1 before losing to De La Salle in the CIF Open Division championship game.
Last season, Chandler climbed as high as #19 in our national rankings.
