Pusch Ridge’s Javier Grajeda is closing in on 1,000 yards rushing this season after serving as a backup to Evan Lovett last seasons. The Lions (8-2) open the 3A state tournament Friday night as the No. 7 seed hosting No. 10 Thatcher. Empire’s Jake Lambert, another senior, will also go for 1,000 yards this season when the Ravens (5-4) look to clinch a winning record in the regular season for only the second time in the last eight years when they host Catalina Foothills (4-4) on Friday night. The game between Empire and Catalina Foothills is essentially for the 4A Gila title.
