high school football: On the verge of falling to 1-3, the Gators erase a double-digit deficit in the second half to grab thrilling win
The Green Valley High football team might be as good as advertised, after all. The Gators certainly played that way Friday in the closing minutes against visiting Palo Verde, erasing a 13-point second half deficit to grab a momentum-building 42-41 victory in overtime. Green Valley opened the season ranked No. 3 in the Sun’s rankings, but lost two of its initial three games in nearly dropping out of the top 10. By handing No. 2 Palo Verde a rare nonleague defeat, the Gators earned their spot alongside the area’s elite teams.

Green Valley football coach tries to downplay high expectations
Thursday, August 29, 2013
high school football:
Expectations are so high for the Green Valley football team, some believe they are the favorites to win the Sunrise Region and not three-time defending region champ Liberty. Green Valley coach Brian Castro isn’t buying into it that notion. “It’s not our focus. We’re focused on what we’re doing on the practice field and what to do to get better,” Castro said. “The kids know there is a little bit of buzz out there. We’re not going to sneaking up on anybody. This year, people kind of know that we’re here and we’re definitely expecting to get everyone’s best efforts.”

high school football: First-year coach Brad Talich getting the most out of team that hadn't been to playoffs since 2005
The Coronado High football team won two league games the past three seasons. However, that was an old era of Cougars football, before first-year coach Brad Talich took over the program. With Talich leading the way, Coronado is having its best season since the school opened in 2001. That season is going to last at least one more week. Coronado’s Derrick Keller had a pair of touchdown runs Friday night against host Green Valley in the Sunrise Regional semifinals, and the Cougars defense was stingy for most of the night in a 29-14 victory.
