ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) — With Week 2 of Alaska Prep Football upon us it’s time to choose the KTUU Tailgate Tour Game of the Week. It will be East High School hosting Cesar Chavez High School from Phoenix, Arizona on August 17 at 6:00 PM at East.
The Thunderbirds are coming off a 47-0 shutout victory over Chugiak. East comes into week two ranked No. 1 overall for large schools in the latest Alaska Sports Broadcaster poll. Their competition will be no slouch as Chavez won its district in Arizona in 2017, and the school's enrollment is 200-300 students more than East High.

ASBN Week 2 Poll
The Alaska Sports Broadcasting Network releasing its Week 2 polls, turning a lot of heads in the Div. II/III poll, not even ranking Soldotna after its loss to West to start the season. The Stars came into the season No. 1 in the preseason poll before losing on a last-second play to Div. I opponent West.
In the Div. I poll there was shuffling among the top three teams as Bartlett dropped from No. 1 to No. 2 after a Week 1 win in Hawaii. West dropped as well after snapping Soldotna’s 59-game win streak. East actually moved up to No. 1 after its dominating performance against Chugiak on the road.
