The Prospector Varsity football team defeated rival Combs High School in “The Battle of Ironwood” on Friday night by a score of 54-27.

It was an emotional and historical night for the Prospectors. Before the game, the Prospectors honored their 2019 senior class prior to their final home game at Davis Field, also they honored former teammate Andrew Karkutt, who tragically passed away on Saturday, October 20th. Also before the game, Prospector Head Coach Vance Miller was honored with the Arizona Cardinals High School Football Coach of the Week award, after their triumph over the then #3 ranked Glendale Cardinals the week before.

With the win over Combs, the Prospectors are still undefeated in the Battle of Ironwood rivalry game, and once again clinched the Black Canyon Region championship. The Prospectors are region champions in back to back seasons for the first time in school history and automatically qualify for the AIA 4A Football State Playoffs.
