Former Norman North coach Wade Standley takes over at Deer Creek and will try to get the Antlers to rebound after a 2-8 season last year, their first year in 6A-II. Senior QB Hunter Freese will be called upon to lead the offense. Several players return on the defensive side of the ball led by seniors Drew O'Hara and Griff Stanley. The Southmoore Sabercats find themselves in a rebuild mode after a record of 6-5 last season.

Where to watch: YurView AZ Ch. 4/1004 HD (Phoenix) and 7/1007 HD (Tucson), streaming live at yurview.com
Overview: Two very talented squads looking to improve on what both teams would call underachieving seasons a year ago. Desert Vista, under head coach Dan Hinds, will return a solid core of players from last year’s team that advanced to the second round. Big play receiver Keshaud White is back and James Stagg is a division 1 recruit at both tight end and defensive end. Basha was a disappointing 3-8 a year ago. New coach Rich Wellbrock will look to shore up a defense that gave up points a plenty in 2016. The Bears averaged over 33 points per game but gave up 49. Coach Wellbrock is confident in junior to be signal caller, Collin Collins. The sophomore completed 66.7% of his passes for over 500 yards and 5 TDs while rushing for another 339. Look for Collins to get on the radar of colleges. On the Defensive side, Kenric Jameison tallied 78 tackles and 5 picks his sophomore year.

Overview: It's a rematch of the 2015 state championship game when Millard North takes on Millard West. The crosstown rivals are nearly always in the top 10, perhaps due to the consistency of their respective head coaches. Millard West's Kirk Peterson enters his 14th season, while Millard North's Fred Petito patrols the sidelines for the 34th year. Between the lines, both defenses will have their hands full with the opposing running back. Millard West's Brody Belt returns from a 2016 campaign that saw him gain more than 1,300 yards, while Millard North fullback Noah Mick reeled off more than 1,400 yards.
