The AllSportsTucson.com crew featured former Arizona standout safety Brandon Sanders, a member of the famed Desert Swarm defense, as its guest of the weekly High School Sports Preview Show at Wings Over Broadway on Thursday night.
Sanders, who coached Pueblo High School to prominence over the previous six years, is now a defensive backs coach with the Tucson Sugar Skulls.
