Peoria (Ariz.) Sunrise Mountain at Phoenix (Ariz.) Greenway at 7 p.m.
Sunrise is led by big running back Corey Brown. He has scored eight touchdowns already while averaging over ten yards per carry. Defensive back Ryan Wood has an intriguing skill set. He plays corner now but at 6-foot-3, a transition to safety is likely. Kade Greenhalgh is the top player for Greenway. The dual-threat quarterback is also the team's leading rusher.
Gilbert (Ariz.) Queen Creek at Scottsdale (Ariz.) Saguaro at 7 p.m.
This is a great match-up between two of the top teams in division-three and they have very contrasting styles. Queen Creek is the defending state champs and they love to run the rock. Air Force commit Matt Guida rushed for over 3,000 yards last year but has been out with an injury. Weston Barlow has picked up where Guida left off, rushing for over 200 yards in each of his three starts this year. Saguaro runs a spread attack and quarterback Luke Rubenzer makes their offense go.
Rubenzer, a Cal commit, has plenty of weapons surrounding him. Junior Christian Kirk is one of the top 50 players in the 2015 class and wide receiver J.T.
Nettleton has emerged as a division-one prospect, averaging over 34 yards per
catch. Offensive tackle Alex Anderson has double-digit scholarship offers. (@jason247scout)
Bellevue (Wash.) at Kirkland (Wash.) Juanita at 7:00 p.m.
Bellevue is the premier program in the state, as usual, and is loaded with top
prospects. The Wolverines boast the Northwest's top player in Budda Baker, who'll play safety, running back and receiver for the Wolverines. The Wolverines also feature a pair of Pac-12 commits on the defensive line in Marcus Griffin (Washington State) and Shane Bowman (Oregon State). Offensively, Tim Haehl, who's headed to Harvard, starts at quarterback and will play behind an offensive line that includes Morgan Richey, a three-star guard, and 2015 Scout 300 tackle Henry Roberts.
They also have 2016 athlete Isaiah Gilchrist, who's already got an offer from
Washington. Juanita has a four-star of their own, 2015 defensive tackle
Thomas Toki, who will try to stuff the vaunted Wolverines running game up the
Concord (Calif.) De La Salle at Anaheim (Calif.) Servite at 7 p.m.
De La Salle is the state's top team and once again is loaded on both sides of the ball. Defensive end Sumner Houston is an Oregon State commit and one of the most physical lineman in the region. Sophomore Boss Tagaloa plays on both sides of the line and will be in the running for top overall recruit out West in the class of 2016. At 6-foot-2, 260-pounds, he's a load to deal with and picked up an offer from Ole Miss over the summer despite barely playing last season. The line was also bolstered by the transfer of junior Kahlil McKenzie, son of Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie. McKenzie, who can play on both sides of the ball, played in Wisconsin a year ago and already has offers from Ole Miss and Washington. After being banged up earlier, Arizona State safety commit Das Tautalatasi is back in action and will also see plenty of time at running back. Talented junior Simba Short is another BCS player for the Spartans and will be one of the region's top linebackers next year and defensive back Kevin Griffin is a talented cover corner who has committed to Washington State. Larry Allen Jr., son of former Dallas Cowboy Hall of Fame guard Larry Allen Sr., is one of the top lineman in the west region and anchors arguably the region's top offensive line. Servite has been one of the big surprises in the Southern Section this year. Junior quarterback Travis Waller is a very intriguing kid and has made huge strides in the last year. He can beat you with his arm and his legs and will be a top prospect next year. The Friars junior class is loaded with cornerback Maurice Davison emerging as one of the state's best at his position, linebacker Jack Savage is a big hitter who can run and receivers Tony Brown and Equanimeous St. Brown already hold BCS offers. Another junior, Clayton Johnston lead an always powerful Servite

at 7:00 p.m. Live
St. John Bosco is ranked No. 8 nationally in the FOX Top 50, and the Braves had last week off to prepare for Crenshaw and then the Trinity League schedule to follow. Bosco is led by a host of big-time college prospects including 5-Star junior quarterback Josh Rosen who should be back from his injury against Chandler on September 14th.

at 7:00 p.m. Live
San Clemente has fallen on hard time this year after being a power in the South Coast just two seasons ago. Edison has gotten handled by two of the Trinity League's powers the last two weeks, first Servite and then Mater Dei. Edison is led on both lines of scrimmage by BYU commitment Tico Fuga.

Valencia's senior quarterback Jake Wallace has been impressive early this season with nearly 1200 yards in just four games while throwing for 12 touchdowns against only three interceptions. Loyola sits at 2-3 but they have played very well on defense including holding St. John Bosco to 24 points two weeks ago.
Sherman Oaks (Calif.) Notre Dame at West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade at 7:00 p.m. Live
The best matchup of the night features two teams side by side in the Southern Section Rankings; Chaminade at No. 10 and Notre Dame at No. 11.

The Buffs are also represented by Rick Gamboa at linebacker who spearheads Chaminade's defense along with UCLA commit Jojo McIntosh at defensive back. Do everything athlete Koa Farmer (Cal) plays on both sides of the ball for Notre Dame.
