2021 record: 7-3 overall, 3-1 2A San Pedro (tied for first)

Head coach: Jay Dobyns, 10-3 third year at Tanque Verde and overall. Dobyns is a former Sahuaro High School and Arizona football standout who turned to coaching after a storied career as a federal agent. He also has become an author and motivational speaker.

Key returners:

“We’re fighting to become relevant. We have a small sample size, two seasons. We’ve had some success but not what we expect. We play Morenci the first week of the season, which is everybody’s No. 1 (team) in 2A. We play Pima in our third week, which is everybody’s second pick for the state championship. We’re going to find out really quick if we are meeting our goals and if we’re relevant. We have a really great unit of kids. Fun to coach. They enjoy themselves at practice. They enjoy their teammates. They make my job really easy.” — Dobyns

“I’m confident; the young guys are really working. We’re really clicking. We’re really meshing and I’m just beyond blessed to be a part of this team.” — Endean, an Oklahoma State commit who is in his second season with Tanque Verde after spending his first two years with Salpointe.

“When I first came here, I was told we wouldn’t win any games, and we didn’t. We went 0-10. Dobyns and his coaching staff came in and they really taught me to become a leader. I’ve taken that the last three years. Now, being a captain, it’s become easy now leading this team. I couldn’t do it without my teammates. They’re really easy to lead.” — Scott, referring to Tanque Verde going winless in 2019, a year before Dobyns was hired.

Coaching staff:

Notes: Tanque Verde lists junior Grayson Bradshaw at QB along with two freshmen — Anthony Torgeson and Rocco Haggard. The Hawks used two seniors at the position last season — Lucas Franklin and Brendan Gamen, who combined for more than 1,000 yards and 11 touchdowns. … Dobyns again has a star-studded coaching staff that includes former Arizona standouts Jeff Kiewel, David Adams, Van Brandon, Scooter Sprotte and Chris Lopez. His son Jack has returned to be an assistant after spending last season on the staff at Odessa (Texas) High School. “I have a rock-star staff of coaches who handle all the heavy lifting,” Jay Dobyns said. “The kids do whatever we say. The kids on our team, if I told them, ‘You have to climb on the roof of the school today and jump off on your head to get better,’ they would ask where the ladder is.” … Tanque Verde finished 7-3 last season and was rated the 12th-best team in the 2A by AIA’s point system. The Hawks did not qualify for the state playoffs, however, because region winners are allowed to leap over at-large teams. Dobyns’ team landed at No. 17. The 2A state playoffs consist of 16 teams. “That was frustrating,” Dobyns said. “I believe those kids had earned a spot in the playoffs, to be one of the top 16 teams in the state. The system is what it is and the algorithm computes who comes in the way it does. I’ve been preaching since I got here to these kids, ‘We don’t make excuses. We don’t lay blame. We don’t look for someone to point a finger at. If there is a problem, let’s go fix it ourselves.’ That’s the intent this year — don’t leave it up to the computer.” … Tanque Verde plays three of its first four 2A San Pedro games on the road before finishing with a home game against Willcox, which very well could be a showdown for the region title. … LB Brayden Scott, a senior, is returning as one of the top tacklers in Southern Arizona recording 88 last season.

Keep an eye out for: The Vimmerstedt twins who are seniors — Aidan, a lineman, and Brendan, a tight end and defensive end. They are another set of captains for Dobyns who have played through the hard times to the promise of what Dobyns and his staff have brought to the school. They are very physical and durable at their positions.

TANQUE VERDE RB/LB MICHAEL MCKENNA

Coaching staff:

Notes: Jeff Bollnow will try to pick up where Jay Dobyns and his staff left Tanque Verde, which made its first postseason appearance in program history last season. Dobyns resigned after three years as the Hawks’ coach, citing personal reasons. … Bollnow served as defensive coordinator at Cienega under Pat Nugent and Sahuarita under Jake Price. … Josh Lopez, son of Chris Lopez, a member of Arizona’s Desert Swarm defense, is a senior wide receiver/free safety with the Hawks. Chris is a former assistant who was part of Dobyns’ staff. … New offensive and defensive line coach Pete Delgado was the head coach at Baboquivari the previous four seasons. … Tanque Verde has only four home games and plays its first two and last two games on the road. The Hawks open their 2A San Pedro schedule with a home game Sept. 15 against Palo Verde, which is at the 2A level this season after playing at 3A last season.

Keep an eye out for: QB Grayson Bradshaw, who has a strong arm and mobility. Tanque Verde was predominantly a running team in previous years, but the new coaching staff is looking to have the offense more balanced. Bradshaw worked on his timing with his receivers during the 7-on-7 season in June and was impressive.

Former Arizona catcher Izzy Pacho joins Tanque Verde High School softball as assistant coach

Welcome assistant coach Izzy Pacho! pic.twitter.com/TPDmrcCHN9

— Tanque Verde HS (@TanqVerdeHS) October 5, 2023

Pacho holds a degree in elementary education from the University of Arizona and spent last year taking graduate classes as she completed her eligibility with the Wildcats. She was already preparing for life as a coach, holding camps and clinics for young players along with current Wildcats Allie Skaggs and Carlie Scupin.

At Tanque Verde, her players will have a role model who developed her talents locally before winning a starting role in her final two seasons in the Wildcat program. Pacho’s journey started on the south side of Tucson where she played in Sunnyside Little League. When it was time for high school, her family moved to the northwest side so she could be closer to her travel ball team in Oro Valley.

“It was definitely a big transition and like kind of a culture shock,” Pacho said earlier this year. “I grew up off of 12th and Valencia, went to Sunnyside elementary schools and middle school. Was planning on going to either San Miguel High School or Desert View. And then my club team was based out of Oro Valley, so moved out there. It was just a family decision, just make our lives a little bit easier being closer to my Suncat team and instead of driving so much.”

Pacho has made the most of those family decisions. In her five years at Arizona, she went from being a pinch hitter and designated player to a starter at both third base and catcher. She was a team leader whether she was on the field or not. After failing to qualify for almost a decade, the program went to the Women’s College World Series in three of her five seasons.

Pacho ended her career at Arizona having played in 155 games with 116 starts. She had a slash of .304/.392/.497. She hit 20 doubles, one triple, and 16 home runs over her career, accounting for one-third of her total hits.

Tanque Verde High, which is located on the northeast side of Tucson in the Sabino Canyon area, went 16-10 overall and 6-2 in 3A South. The Hawks finished third in their section. In the playoffs, they defeated Window Rock and Bourgade Catholic before falling to Sabino.

By Raymundo Frasquillo

MORENCI – The Joseph Garcia-coached Morenci Wildcats welcome Tucson Tanque Verde on Friday, Aug. 26 for a 7 p.m. kickoff. The forecast calls for sunshine all day long. The pairing is the season opener for the Hawks. They are making their third trip to Lawson Stadium, having succumbed 0-54 in 2012 and 6-48 in 2013.

The Wildcats are 4-0 overall versus the Hawks, averaging a score of 49-10 (196-41) per game from 2011-14. Those four Tucson teams went a combined 6-34 (.150) while Morenci was 32-14 (.696) during the same span.

Since then, Tanque Verde has posted a combined record of 21-42 (.333), 3-7 (2015, 2016, 2018), 2-8 (2017), 0-10 (2019), 3-0 (2020), and 7-3 (2021). The most recent two seasons were in the 2A class with all 10 wins coming against teams going a combined 17-57 (.230), none with a winning overall record.

In the same span, the Wildcats were 50-29 (.633), with individual finishes of 6-4 (2015), 5-6 (2016), 8-4 (2017), 9-3 (2018), 4-7 (2019), 7-2 (2020), and 11-3 (2021). Morenci’s most recent two seasons had 18 wins, eight against teams ending with winning records and finishing a combined 58-23 (.716) overall.

Last season, Tanque Verde ended 7-3 (.700) overall and 3-1 (.750) for 2nd in the region, averaging a 27-17 (272-166) score per game or a 10-point margin. The No. 15 Hawks were kept out of the playoffs by automatic qualifiers No. 21 Glendale Trivium Prep and No. 22 Teec Noc Pos Red Mesa. Trivium Prep fell 20-61 to No. 2 Arizona Lutheran and Red Mesa 14-69 to No. 1 Parker.

Morenci finished 11-3 (.786) overall and 4-1 (.800) for 2nd in the region, averaging a 33-15 (467-214) score per game or an 18-point margin. The No. 4 Wildcats ended as state runners-up to the No.2 Phoenix Arizona Lutheran Coyotes with a 14-28 loss.

Garcia is not taking the Hawks lightly, telling the Wildcats the game will be a much tougher one than the 30-6 win over Scottsdale Christian was.

A 32-member Morenci squad made its debut last week, comprised of 12 seniors and 12 juniors, five sophomores, and three freshmen. There are 21 lettermen with eight seniors earning three letters, nine juniors with two letters, and a senior, junior, and two sophomores with one letter.

Three-year lettermen include seniors Dillen Aker, Gavin Baca, Patrick Chavez, Rick Funari, Gabriel Hernandez, Daylen Johnson, Jalen Kitcheyan, and Derek Saenz; two-year lettermen are juniors Ryan Biggs, Michael Casillas, Andrew Chavez, Tristen Sanchez, and Donovan Vozza; and one-year lettermen are senior Jarel Diaz, junior John Provencio, and sophomores Peyton Basteen and Yedidia Luputa.

The rest of the roster includes seniors Tyler Aguilera, Blaze Brown, and Tony Campbell; juniors Javier Hernandez and Bradley Weiss; sophomores Xavier Fernandez, Christopher Lopez, and Marcus Lucero; and freshmen Julien Aragon, Isaiah Cook, and Derick Lytle.

Since switching to a 2A school, Morenci is 203-160 (.559) during 40 seasons from 1982-2021, averaging a 22-16 (8,067-5,943) score per game or a 6-point margin while facing 57 different opponents.

Other pairings for Morenci’s 2022 opponents have 0-1 Scottsdale Christian at 1-0 Laveen Heritage, 1-0 Safford (Sept. 2) at 0-0 Pima (Oct. 28), 0-0 Willcox (Sept. 16) hosting 1-0 Gilbert Christian, 0-1 Tombstone (Sept. 23) idle, 0-0 Globe (Sept. 30) at 0-0 Tucson Santa Rita, 1-0 Gilbert San Tan Charter (Oct. 7) at 0-1 Phoenix Veritas Prep, 0-1 Miami (Oct. 14) hosting 0-0 Chandler Prep, and 0-0 San Carlos (Oct. 21) hosting 0-0 Phoenix NFL Yet.

The 6-member 2A Salt Region includes Morenci, Pima, Globe, Miami, Gilbert San Tan Charter, and San Carlos.

Last week’s results had Safford 27-20 over Phoenix Christian, Tombstone falling 16-20 to Benson, and San Tan Charter 46-21 over Miami. Globe, Pima, San Carlos, and Willcox were idle.

Around the area, 0-1 Fort Thomas (0-1, 0-1) hosts Duncan (0-1, 0-0) in a 1A South Region pairing and Thatcher (1-0, 0-0) hosts Mesa Eastmark (1-0, 0-0).

The 3A South Region has Safford and Thatcher along with Benson and Tucson schools Palo Verde Magnet, Pusch Ridge Christian Academy, and Sabino, while the 1A South Region has Duncan, Fort Thomas, Elfrida Valley Union, Kearny Ray, San Manuel, and Saint David.

Last week, Baboquivari (1-0, 1-0) defeated Fort Thomas 50-6 in Sells, Lordsburg (1-0, 0-0) defeated Duncan 38-14 in New Mexico, and Thatcher defeated Round Valley (0-1, 0-0) 42-14 in Eager.

TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — For the last three years, Tucsonans have fought development on the northeast corner of Houghton and Tanque Verde. Amanda Bradley is one of more than 2,000 residents living nearby who signed a petition against the planned development.

“There was a lot of open space out here and the zoning reflected the spaciousness of the area,” Bradley said.

The property owner wants to put 33 single-family homes into the area. This would look different from the large suburban ranches in the surrounding neighborhoods. It would fit more people into less space.

“We’d like to be outside of the busier areas with less traffic and more space,” Bradley said.

Residents nearby are worried this would increase traffic on the already busy intersection.

“There’s a lot of traffic because people use Houghton to go to the High School as they rebuilding more homes along the south of Houghton, a lot of people go through here to get to town,” said Zohreh Saunders, member of the Tanque Verde Trails Homeowners Association.

The proposed development would be on an existing floodplain, which usually mitigates flooding during monsoon.

“I think most people were objecting to the flooding, traffic, and the fact that it didn’t really fit in with the neighborhood,” Saunders said.

The area is also home to unique plants and desert life.

“Every time I see a development go up, it’s a destruction of that habitat,” Bradley said.

Tucson’s Zoning Examiner agrees with neighbors and does not support the nature of this development. But City Staff support the planned development, with a few exceptions. They're asking the property owner to take certain steps to prevent flooding and protect the natural habitats.

Moving forward, the City Manager will release his conclusion about this development. Then, the City says it’ll go before the Mayor and Council in mid-October for their final decision.

In a statement, Jim Portner of Projects International Inc., on behalf of the property owner, New Era, LLC said: "Our proposal is a small step toward implementing the principles of sustainable development and smart growth that form the foundation of the adopted general plans for both the City of Tucson and Pima County. Our proposed density is a fraction of that which is acceptable for a major nodal intersection like Houghton at Tanque Verde. In the simplest terms, this rezoning is a choice to either exercise and further the principles of Plan Tucson (the City’s General & Sustainability Plan), or to instead continue the old ways of doing things, adding to the low-density sprawl that already overburdens our community’s infrastructure and public services."

The development would be in Ward 2, of council member Paul Cunningham. In his newsletter, Cunningham said "I won’t be supporting any development at Tanque Verde and Houghton that increases flood hazards. I also won’t be supporting a proposal that violates the spirit of the 2016 agreement without the agreement of the neighbors."
