Brophy football--2014 postseason wrapup: Led by an outstanding senior class, Brophy football concluded a successful 2014 season with a 10-4 record. The Broncos, seeded fourth for the 2014 AIA Division 1 football championship playoffs, qualifed for their 12th consecutive playoffs, advancing to the Division I football championship semifinals. Beginning in 1972, the Broncos have played in eleven semifinals, making it to the state championship finals six times. This was the fifth semifinal appearance by the Broncos during Scooter Molander's ten seasons as head football coach. A hearty thank you from Brophy football to its Red Army, Xavier Cheer and Spiritline, and all fans for their support throughout the season!
Bronco season highlights include the Sollenberger game in Las Vegas to open the season with Brophy football's first out-of-state game; a ten-win season, including a remarkable nine-game winning streak while playing the most challenging schedule in the state; senior Isaiah Oliver establishing Brophy school football records on offense (1,352 receiving yards), defense (seven interceptions-tie), and special teams (five blocked kicks for the season; nine blocked kicks for career); securing the Division I, Section IV region title by defeating the defending state champion Mountain Pointe; and first-ever victories over football powerhouses Desert Ridge and Chaparral.
