HIGH SCHOOL football is about much more than the game; it's about what's going on around the players as well. The more than one million teenagers who suit up are supported by, among others, cheerleaders, band members and multitudes of volunteers who work tirelessly behind the scenes. A member of the spirit squad from Avondale (Ariz.) Agua Fria High celebrated the Owls' 55--20 win over Lake Havasu High. Agua Fria (12--0), which has won six state titles since 1948, will play Scottsdale Saguaro this Friday in the semifinals of the Arizona Class 4A Division I playoffs.
