Staying connected with AZ's HS community
March 25, 2020 by Jose Garcia, AZPreps365
Arizona’s high school teams are sidelined, but the athletes continue to train on their own and communicate.
azpreps365.com is planning to stay in touch with Arizona’s high school sports community during these trying times. One way is through a communtiy page we started, where we’ll post blogs, photos and social media interactions until #playball instead of #socialdistancing starts trending.
We’ll also post photos from maxpreps.com's Arizona photographers. We’ll start running photos they shot of the spring season before it was interrupted.

Lexi McNabb, the daughter of proud dad Donovan McNabb, a former NFL All-Pro, is a quarterback on the basketball court. She's is a point guard for Seton Catholic's state championship basketball program.
Congrats to Flagstaff football coach Todd Hanley and his wife.

This wasn't exactly the break Millennium boy's basketball coach wanted:
During our state championship run I was talking with my staff and said when this is all over I’m gonna need some time away and get some much needed rest. I didn’t know it was gonna be like this...smh! Be safe out there everyone!— Ty Amundsen (@TyAmundsen) March 23, 2020
