The stars were out Friday night in Arizona.
Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals will host the Los Angeles Rams later today in an NFC West showdown. While it’s unsure how he spent his Saturday night, we know what he did Friday.
Murray, along with teammates Byron Murphy and Eno Benjamin, were on the sideline to watch two of the best high school football teams in Arizona square off.
Murray, who was drafted first overall by the Cardinals in 2019, graduated from Allen (Texas) before playing collegiately at Texas A&M and Oklahoma.
So how did the Texas native end up watching Chandler and Saguaro less than 48 hours before taking the field himself? The connection likely originated from his Cardinals teammate Byron Murphy, a former standout at Saguaro and the University of Washington.
Not to mention, this was one of the week’s best games in the entire country. Chandler boasts the No. 1-ranked junior nationally in quarterback Dylan Raiola, an Ohio State commit. The Wolves entered the matchup with Saguaro ranked No. 7 in the SBLive/Sports Illustrated Power 25.
Raiola threw two touchdowns, as Chandler took care of business, 31-21, to remain unbeaten this season.
