Chandler’s ‘Super I’ lineup baffles everyone for TD walk-in [VIDEO]
I do not know what it is floating in water in Chandler, Arizona, but fill up a canteen and ship it to me because creativity and victory are all I see.
Over eight seasons with the former head coach Shaun Aguano at the helm, the Chandler Wolves recorded an 88-19 record and won four state championships in five years (2014, 2016-18). Dominating Arizona’s Class 6A and being ranked among the MaxPreps The National Top 25 has become an annual event with talent like the first round of the NFL Draft N’Keal Harry among the alumni of Chandler High School. Aguano is now running backs coach at Arizona State University under Herm Edwards. His first season saw Eno Benjamin be named First-Team All-Pac 12.
Arizona, however, was not the only place where Chandler dominated. The program beat Valosta (Ga.) And Miami Northwestern (Fla.) In the GEICO State Champions Bowl Series, which pits state title winners Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Nevada, Utah or Washington against each other.
The inaugural addition in 2016 saw Florida central St. Thomas Aquinas beat Bingham, Utah in Game 1. In the second, Valdosta High School in Georgia came face to face with Chandler, but the result wasn’t quite close.
The Ford Center in Frisco, Texas, was the host of this match like Chandler in reverse TJ Green (who played for the Utah Utes and now Liberty) ran for 183 yards and two touchdowns – not a huge surprise considering Green was Arizona’s Player of the Year, according to multiple publications. The MVP of the game was Chandler’s sophomore quarterback Jacob Conover (now with the BYU Cougars), who threw for 271 yards and three touchdowns.
Chandler outshined Valdosta, 44-24, and the Wolves converted an all-time tricks game that’s still replayed today. Say hello to the “Super I” training.

After Chandler took an 8-0 lead, Valdosta responded with two scores to take a 9-8 lead in the second quarter.
The Wildcats never led again.
After regaining momentum, Wolves faced a third and a deep 14 in Valdosta territory. Chandler broke his offensive group with the 11 players lined up in a straight line. (Shades of Jim Harbaugh’s offensive in Michigan the same year.) The team broke into a wide-five receiving set, quickly broke the ball, and Conover found tight end Aaron Howard wide open for a 32-yard touchdown before Valdosta knew what made them. hit.
Three straight touchdowns and two forced turnovers dumped Chandler to a 30-6 lead, and they never looked back.
“It was an absolutely fantastic experience for us here, all first class,” Chandler coach Shaun Aguano said after the game (via Center from A to Z). “I hope other states will embrace this. Overall it was the most amazing experience for our kids, coming from Chandler playing at a facility like this and being taken care of.
In case there was any doubt, Chandler returned the following year to smoke Miami Northwestern, 55-20.
The big towers are not always the winners. Sometimes they just need to be wacky and come onto ESPN’s biggest stage with the world watching them.
