The preseason high school football All-Southern Arizona team continues today with No. 10 on our list of 22 players.

Check out a video clip on KVOA (Channel 4) tonight at 6 and 10.

The team was chosen by the Arizona Daily Star and the staff at KVOA and will be revealed daily through Aug. 22.

Tyler D'Amore • QB • 6-1, 190 • Ironwood Ridge, senior

• Who he is: Looking for the liveliest arm in Southern Arizona? Head out to Ironwood Ridge. A Division I-caliber quarterback prospect, D'Amore has led the Nighthawks to back-to-back playoff appearances, including a berth in the state semifinals as a sophomore in 2008. He is widely regarded as the top signal caller in the area.

• Proof he is good: Despite playing in a run-oriented offense under then new I-Ridge coach Matt Johnson last fall, D'Amore still managed to toss his way into the top five of all Southern Arizona quarterbacks in passing yardage with more than 1,700 yards. He is also a capable threat with his legs.

• What makes him special: D'Amore was the 5A Southern Region's second-team QB in 2009. And at 6 feet 1 inch and 185 pounds, he doubles as a lockdown defender and long-range shooting threat for the perennially strong I-Ridge basketball program. He comes from a family of strong athletes, including a brother who played D-I hoops.
