It is no coincidence that Empire senior Jake Lambert is the leading tackler in Southern Arizona and also one of the top running backs and the Ravens (5-4) are striving for only their second winning season in the last eight years. Marana junior Sam Brown is also one of the leading receivers and defensive backs (with five interceptions) in Southern Arizona and the 11h-ranked Tigers (7-1) are challenging for a 5A Sonoran title and spot in the 5A state tournament.
