The body of Frank Castillo, 44, was pulled from the water at 2:26 p.m. Monday after a jet skier saw it floating.

On Friday, Oct. 7 the Dust Devils will be celebrating their homecoming against the San Tan Foothill Sabercats. The Sabercats (4-2) beat Valley Christian last Friday 46-21.

San Tan Foothills is not only another test for the SC, but they, too, score points in bunches and put up over 45 points per game against opponents this season. “We are a young team and have to cut down on the turnovers,” Ocampo said.

  Nick Brown sees action as a running back, receiver and defensive back on a regular basis for Florence. Last Friday, the versatile junior added quarterback to his resume, with positive results. “I took a few snaps as a freshman, that was it,” Brown said. “It was a new experience, and a great one. But you have to be tough to play quarterback.”
