After the various first-team and second-team football selections have
been made, it’s time for the Arizona Football Coaches Association to select its “Big 25” team. And this year, a couple of schools picked up the lion’s share of selections.
Marcos de Niza HS placed a trio of players on the Big 25, as did Hamilton HS. But it was Chandler High School’s Brett Hundley that got the nod at quarterback and the back field was filled by Ka’deem Carey of Canyon del Oro HS and Davon Jones from Mountain Pointe HS.
Hundley was just one of many signal-callers putting up big numbers this year, but his were pretty gaudy: 1,575 yards passing, 16 touchdowns, and a .629 completion mark. Carey and Jones were both reliable workhorses who carried the load for their respective schools. Carey
piled up 2,738 yards on 224 carries and Jones carried the ball 259 times for 1,791 yards.
