Chandler has been a five-time reigning State Arizona Champion and will bring it to The Honor Bowl for the first time. Head Coach Rick Garretson and AD Jim Culver worked hard to get in this Showcase and they got a great game. Leading the Wolves will be Texas transfer Junior QB Dylan Raiola who led his Burleson team with 3,341 yds, 42TDs. Junior RB Ca’lil Valentine will be a force in the backfield where he rushed for 563 Yds and 7 TDs. This will be the first time Chandler plays against a San Diego team and looks forward to a good matchup facing the Dons. Chandler had a 11-2 season and ended up #3 AZ and #27 nationally.
