The Millennium Varsity football team team went 4-6 on the season finishing 22 in their conference 6A  and taking 3rd in the Southwest section after the first season under Coach Carter. “Starting the season off with losses against highly ranked teams Perry, Desert Edge, and Skyline. The tigers also came out with wins against rivals like O’Connor (16-7) and Copper Canyon (48-20). As well as winning our Homecoming game against Tolleson (36-26). “It was a little rough in the beginning but I personally was able to make improvements,” says Junior Aidan Diggs on the season under new head coach.

The team played great together but a few players shined this season. Aidan Diggs lead the nation in kickoff and punt returns and averaged 44.7 yards. Also ended the season with 7 touchdowns and 668 receiving yards. Junior quarterback Ernie Pina threw for 1718 yards and 14 touchdowns. Senior Cameron Taylor ran for a total of 716 receiving yards and scored 7 touchdowns. Senior Melo Johnson lead the team in rushing yards with 550 yards and 4 touchdowns. As for defense, Michael Garverick ended his high school season with 3 interceptions and 87 total tackles. Senior Patrick O’Connell lead the team with 123 tackles. Junior Christian Brooks ended the year averaging 8.9 sacks a game.

“I’ll probably miss all the seniors because I was the closest with them,” Diggs says. This year the team will be losing 17 seniors but next year they still expect to perform and have high hopes of the playoffs.
