• Cameron Miller, son of UA basketball coach Sean Miller, will be a freshman this season at Salpointe Catholic. At the Full Court Press Arizona Showcase last weekend in Mesa, Cameron was listed among the two most impressive players from the Class of 2017. He is a point guard.
  • Remember Sunnyside all-state running back Freddie Sims, who was recruited to powerful Oklahoma in 1981 by coach Barry Switzer? Freddie’s son, Quentin Sims, who played at Georgia Tech and Tennessee-Martin, was signed by the New England Patriots last week and added to their practice squad. He caught a touchdown pass from Tim Tebow in the Pats’ final exhibition game.
  • Before he tore his ACL entering his senior season at Catalina Foothills, in the summer of 2011, Nick Chronister established himself as one of Tucson’s top high school football players. But he persevered, accepted a walk-on spot at Utah State and now, as a redshirt freshman, is part of USU’s Mountain West Conference football team. He is a safety.
