Catalina Foothills uses ground game to get past Pueblo 34-16; Complete results and a look ahead to Week 6

Diego Ramirez. (Andy Morales/AllSportsTucson)


The future was on display Friday night and it looked promising. Daniel Sainz picked up his first career victory as a head coach after Catalina Foothills came back to defeat Pueblo 34-16, one week after Jacob Allen won his first game as a head coach when his Warriors defeated Rincon/University 44-8. There might be a night in the distant future when these two are battling each other for their 100th victory but we can say we were there for the beginning and that’s incredible.

Sainz played for legendary head coach Jeff Scurran at Santa Rita and he spent the last eight years learning the coaching end under Scott McKee at Sahuaro. Sainz is an important branch off of that coaching tree and Allen comes in with an equally impressive pedigree after learning the game under legendary head coach Matt Johnson for a combined 11 years at Ironwood Ridge and Mountain View. Even better, Allen was recommended for the Pueblo job by another legend in Curly Santa Cruz. These are all heavy hitters….
