The first of Jeff Scurran’s three state title teams at Sabino was the first Tucson team to win 14 games in a season. It was a season of drama; a few months before the opener, Scurran was among 280 TUSD teachers scheduled to be laid off. The Sabercats rallied to beat Peoria 31-28 in a classic finish.
