CHANDLER, Ariz. -- The Hamilton Huskies had another successful football season in 2012, and their achievements on the field aren’t going unnoticed.

The high school sports publication MaxPreps paid a visit to the 45th ranked team in the country this week and honored the Huskies as part of the eighth annual MaxPreps Tour of Champions.

Only 50 schools are honored by MaxPreps each year. This is the third time that Hamilton has been a part of the Tour of Champions, with MaxPreps also stopping by in 2009 and 2010.

“Coach Belles and the Hamilton Huskies have proven on the field that they are among the nation’s truly elite high school football teams,” said MaxPreps President and Founder Andy Beal.

“It’s very humbling to have this honor. Being honored for the third time is quite a testament of where our program is and our community is proud. This gives our kids next year something to shoot for as well,” said Hamilton head coach Steve Belles.
