Injuries forced a freshman Coxon to start at quarterback during Marana’s first round playoff game against Glendale Apollo. The game didn’t go well — Marana lost 28-0 — but it marked the start of the career for the Tigers’ best passer in school history. Coxon combined for 3,301 yards his junior and senior season and led the city in yards and touchdowns (16) during the 2001 regular season. He finished his career with the majority of Marana’s passing records.
