Practice for the 2018 football season starts six months from today.

Coaches slots are falling into place – Rich Wellbrock at Mountain Pointe, Mike Zdebski at Hamilton – with Brophy and Basha, opened up after Wellbrock resigned after one year, still to come.

By now the juniors, soon to be seniors, have taken over as leaders in the weight room and are setting the tone for next year.

And now each team has a schedule it can put on the board and to get fired up about. The 6A football schedules are settled for the next two-year block.

There are some newcomers in Liberty, Chaparral and Queen Creek with Tucson moving to the Phoenix Metro Region.

The East Valley Region stays the same, while Desert Ridge will now have to contend with Queen Creek in the already tough Central Region to the point the Jaguars could claim to have the toughest schedule in the state.

Here is a look at the 6A Conference football schedules for the 2018-19 and 2019-2020 seasons.
