The best high school football teams in Arizona will play this Monday, December 13, for the Class 5A I and II championships at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale. If you have yet to take you son or daughter to the four-year-old stadium, here’s an opportunity to do so for a price far less than a Cardinals game. Ticket prices are $10 for adults, $6 for students with high school ID cards and kids five and under are free.
The first game is at 4 p.m. and pits Chandler Hamilton against Mesa Desert Ridge for the 5A I championship. Hamilton will be trying to win the state title for the third year in a row and the sixth time in the last eight years.
Scottsdale Chaparral will play Peoria Centennial at 8 p.m. for the 5A II title in a game that has been awaited for the past two seasons. Chaparral won last year’s 5A II title after Centennial had won championship the previous three years. The two schools have not played each other since they were both in the 4A division six years ago.
If you cannot make the games, they will be televised live on Fox Sports Arizona.
