WEEKLY BLOG:  3/16/15

This is the last blog for this light blue version of the web site.

Fortunately, it's not farewell as Gridiron Arizona has moved to a new location.  Check out the new site at the link above.  Everything from here has made it over there (I think).

A great fundraising idea for your booster club: 

Yes, that's right.  My friend Mike over at Liberty Mutual will donate 10 bucks to your organization if you have him give you an insurance quote.  Shoot him an e-mail at Mike.Denney@libertymutual.com and he'll give you some rates.  Are you paying too much now?


Sponsor of the Week: ?????

This is the part of the web site where I will salute one of my fine sponsors.  Perhaps share some of my personal pleasant experiences with them, give some information about the company, or offer up some of their current specials.  If you'd like to take advantage of this section, send an e-mail here or to gridironarizona@yahoo.com.

The AIA works with Maxpreps in devising the power points formula.  This is a statistical method that incorporates an algorithm not able to be duplicated by Gridiron Arizona.  For more on the formulas, or to see the points for Divisions III, IV, V, and VI, see the AIA web site at www.aia365.com.

x - Marana Mountain View has been placed on probation by the AIA due to recruiting violations.  The Mountain Lions are ineligible for the 2014 playoff tournament.  This chart places where the school would be if it were not under these sanctions.

NOTE: Rincon was awarded a victory over Santa Rita by forfeit due to SRHS playing ineligible players.  That win is being reflected on their record, but the game is not included in the power points as the AIA/MaxPreps formula does not allow for a reversal of a forfeited game.  Instead, the result is simply thrown out.

The AIA works with Maxpreps in devising the power points formula.  This is a statistical method that incorporates an algorithm not able to be duplicated by Gridiron Arizona.  For more on the formulas, or to see the points for Divisions III, IV, V, and VI, see the AIA web site at www.aia365.com.
