Cesar Chavez Football Coach Jim Rattay and his Champions celebrated his 300th career win, beating Maryvale, October 10.  It was Chavez’ first win of the year, after a murderous Division I schedule that included state powers Mountain Pointe, Chandler, Basha, Marcos de Niza and Westview.  The players hoisted Rattay on their shoulders, presented a 300th win football, and enjoyed a huge football-shaped cake on the sidelines, commemorating the milestone.  Rattay’s career has spanned five decades, 38 years, and seven state championships in two states-Ohio and Arizona.
