If you can’t play for the Sun Devils, beat them.
Arizona Wildcats junior center Steven Gurrola was born and raised in Phoenix and says “everybody I know is a Sun Devil fan.”
He went to Phoenix Washington High School. He attended Glendale Community College. He waited for Arizona State to offer a scholarship.
“I wanted to stay in Phoenix,” he said. “So if they didn’t want to recruit me …”
Well, Arizona did. Coach Rich Rodriguez and staff recruited and signed Gurrola, who has stepped in for departed Kyle Quinn this season and started every game at center. Gurrola played his best game last week against Oregon, RichRod said, and Gurrola agreed with that assessment.
Just in time to face Arizona State and All-American defensive tackle Will Sutton on Saturday at Sun Devil Stadium.
