SW Analyst Jason Jewell breaks down this Thursday game of the week

Preview: Phoenix (Az.) Mt. Pointe at Chandler (Az.) High

Last week: Chandler (3-1) lost to Basha (4-0) 58-41. Mt. Pointe (2-2) beat Buena (0-4) 69-0.

Players to Watch: Chandler- senior WR Javon Williams, senior WR Lloyd Mills, senior OG Zach Hemmila, senior DE Richard Winston, senior DE Kisima Jagne, senior RB Paul Perkins, senior DB LaRon Tarkington, senior CB Devin Centers, junior QB Darrell Garretson

Mt. Pointe- senior QB Dillan Johnson, senior OL R.J. Hollis, sophomore WR/S Jalen Brown, senior OL Bryce Hurd, senior DL Ray Blackshire, junior OL Kenny Lacy, senior DL Mark Fraboni, senior LB A.J. Williamson, senior LB Jordan Leal

Keys to a Chandler win
: Play some defense! The Wolves got in a shoot out with Basha last week and gave up 58 points. Prior to that the defense hadn't yielded a single point, it will be interesting to see how they respond. Offensively they have shown the can move the ball and score points. Chandler likes to throw the ball and MP has some quality DLs, protecting Garretson is a must.

Keys to a Mt. Pointe win
: My guess is Coach Vaughan is looking for some consistency. Which team will show up? The one that played well against Hamilton or the one that was shut out in a rain shortened game versus Desert Vista? The Pride are very big upfront, as big as their is in the state. They proved they can run the ball but being able to throw it a bit will keep teams from loading the box. A nice game by QB Dillan Johnson is crucial.
