Arizona Season Preview and Schedule of Games

PLAYERS TO WATCH 
Sr. RB Max Davis, 5’11” 195 – Highland

Davis is second in the state in rushing yards and touchdowns with 783 yards, 12 touchdowns on the year. The running back is averaging 195.8 yards per game.

In last year’s regular season game against Queen Creek, Davis had 89 yards rushing with a touchdown.

“Right now, he is the offense,” Highland head coach Brock Farrel said. “The defenses we’ve played haven’t stopped him.

“We’ll give him the ball 30 times, then he comes in on Saturday and you would never know he played a football game. He’s so durable, it’s unreal.”

Sr. S Hunter Barth, 6’2” 200 – Queen Creek

Barth is rated as the No. 11 athlete in Arizona and the No. 61 safety in the nation by 247Sports.

The 6’2” 200 pound safety is committed to play at Cal next season. He had offers from UCLA, Pitt, Duke, USC, Utah, Yale, Washington State, Oregon and Arizona among others.

“(Hunter) is one of the most competitive guys I’ve seen,” Queen Creek head coach Joe Germaine said. “I love that piece about him. He probably could also play every snap of receiver for us, he’s that good of an athlete.”

This season Barth has notched 16 tackles and one interception.

Sr. MLB Kam Cullimore, 5’10” 200 – Highland

Cullimore is a three-year starter on Varsity for the Hawks. The linebacker leads the team in tackles with 30. He has 15 solo and three tackles for loss.

“Our whole defensive game plan is how can we get Kam to where he is free to run to the ball and make tackles,” Farrel said. “He might be the most football intelligent kid on defense that I’ve seen in a long time. He always knows where the ball is going.”

Sr. S Krew Jackson, 6’5” 200 – Queen Creek

Jackson is rated as the No. 12 athlete in Arizona and the No. 64 safety in the nation by 247Sports.

Jackson had offers from over 15 Division I schools including ASU, Arizona, BYU, Yale, and Virginia.

In August, Jackson committed to play his college ball at Kansas State.

While he has played free safety for the Bulldogs the last couple of years, Kansas State recruited Jackson as more of an outside linebacker who can play in space with his length, Germaine said.

“He’s multi-dimensional but the big thing about Krew is his physicality,” Germaine said. “The way that he comes up and engages and tackles people, it jumps off on film.”
