If you’re a football fan and love an old-style high-scoring shootout, Tucson High School is the place to be on Friday night.

In November of his junior season at Canyon del Oro, Ka'Deem Carey rushed for 427 yards and scored six touchdowns in a playoff victory over Glendale Apollo, and I remember his old coach, Pat Nugent, saying it might not have been Carey's best game.
Nogales' Brian McCarty helped the 14th-seeded Apaches upset No. 3 Sabino in the first round of the playoffs.
Nogales took on local powerhouse Sabino in last week's first round of the Division III playoffs, knowing one thing not many others did.
