Tire Pros Team of the Week: Joy Christian
OCT 28, 2013 2:23p ET
Success is nothing new to Joy Christian, which won the eight-man state championship last year, but this was the team's most significant win since moving up in class and improved its record to 8-1. Tonka Watson led the way with 217 yards, and the Eagles' defense recorded nine sacks against Thatcher, which took an 8-0 record into the game.
Other teams under consideration were Mesquite, Pinnacle, Peoria, Marana Mountain View, Salome, Corona del Sol, Show Low and Skylne.
The Tire Pros High School Team of the Week is selected by a panel consisting of Jason Skoda of MaxPreps and the Ahwatukee Foothills News, Mark Heller and Kyle Odegard of the East Valley Tribune, Don Ketchum and Les Willsey of aia365.com, and Craig Morgan, Matt Swartz and Dave Lumia of FOXSportsArizona.com.
