PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

The Chandler National Little League All Stars are one weekend from Williamsport, PA.

Coach Paul Grako's team will go to San Bernardino, CA on Aug. 9 to compete for a berth in the Little League World Series.

"We've got some awesome kids from a skills standpoint," Grako said. "They've come together as a group of brothers."

The Chandler All Stars beat Douglas last week to capture a state championship. A win in this weekend's double elimination tournament will make them the first Arizona team to advance to the Little League World Series in eight years.
