As the Arizona high school football season begins to ramp up, one Tucson product has been garnering a lot of attention, and that’s now-Cienega junior quarterback Jamarye Joiner. Once ranked the top 2018 player in the state, Joiner did not play his sophomore season at Salpointe after being re-assigned to a charter school. Joiner ended up at Cienega this past April, and in his first game with the team on Friday, led the Bobcats to a 52-20 win over Marana, in which he ran for 191 yards on eight carries, and threw for 131. On Saturday, he received a scholarship offer from Arizona. You can see why here:
