Congratulations to Higley’s #11 James Garcia! Garcia signed as a linebacker and safety with ACU.  “He’s the hardest working kid I’ve coached since I’ve been at Higley.  He is the definition of hard work pays off”, says Coach Zubey about Garcia. Pictured is James with his family.

When Higley played Apache Junction on Oct. 10, the two schools nearly ran out of room on the scoreboard. The teams combined for 170 points in a 95-75 win for Higley that saw quarterback Mason Crossland set a state record with 641 yards and nine touchdowns.

With the win, Higley kept its playoff hopes very much alive by pushing its record to 6-1. The East Valley Tribune caught up with Higley football coach Eddy Zubey before the Knights’ game against McClintock to talk about their game against Apache Junction, their season to this point and their hopes for the playoffs.

Q: What is your reaction to your game against Apache Junction? It’s not often you see teams put up 170 combined points.

A: Wow. It was something that definitely wasn’t planned for. It just kind of happened. I’ve been asked multiple times by colleagues and friends and fans, ‘What happened?’ And I really don’t have a good answer for you because I can’t tell. I don’t know. It was crazy. It was something that I know that I’ve never been a part of before

Q: What was it like to call that game offensively? I mean, everything you called must have seemed to work.

A: Well, you know we have a really good offensive coordinator, Joe Ortiz. Him and I have been together, this will be our seventh year together — four at Higley and three at St. Mary’s High School over there together. He just had a good feel and a good bead for what Apache Junction was doing and we just kind of took advantage of that.

…Scoreboards are spinning under the Friday night lights, too. A generation ago, Texas, the center of prep football culture, was home to lots of low-scoring defensive struggles. Check out Texas 5A final scores from this past Friday. Vista Ridge 56, Vandegrift 52 was not an outlier. And in a Friday night final from Arizona: Higley High 95, Apache Junction High 75…

State records are smashed left and right, quarterbacks account for 19 touchdowns as Higley outlasts Apache Junction 95-75.

Arizona state records were smashed, referees huffed and puffed and the winning team gave up 75 points.

There was a little bit of every – except perhaps defense – when Higley (Gilbert, Ariz.) defeated Apache Junction (Ariz.) 95-75 Friday night in a contest that lasted 3 hours and 37 minutes. And it didn’t even go into overtime.

According to this terrific report by Jose Garcia of aia365.com, Higley quarterback Mason Crossland completed 23 of 31 passes for 638 yards and a state 4A record nine touchdowns as the two teams combined for more than 1,600 yards of offense and 73 first downs.

95-75.

It wasn’t a basketball score.

It was a football score.

And it is not a misprint.

We don’t know if Higley and Apache Junction were on fall break this week, but their defenses sure were. When reached by phone late Friday night, Higley coach Eddy Zubey was questioning whether his team really won despite giving up 75 points.

“I’m happy,” he said. “I’m offensive line coach also, and the offensive coaches are happy. But the defensive coaches want to stick hot needles in their eyes. They are bummed.”
