The Battle for Boulder Highway should produce 100 total points this year.
Basic 54, Foothill 47

Falcons have improved, but still have a way to go to catch the Wolves.
Basic 45, Foothill 35

Rancho, unfortunately, won't win a game this fall.
Canyon Springs 50, Rancho 0

Rayshawn Henderson will make life miserable for the Rams.
Canyon Springs 40, Rancho 12

The speed of Andrew Moreland is the difference in Las Vegas' victory.
Las Vegas 30, Green Valley 27

I'm also high on Moreland, but he hasn't seen a defense like Green Valley's.
Green Valley 27, Las Vegas 16

Silverado, as witnessed in staying close last week against Canyon Springs, is definitely a playoff team.
Silverado 36, Valley 20

Skyhawks smash Vikings.

After getting past Coronado last week, Liberty won't be challenged until playoffs.
Liberty 49, Del Sol 15

Liberty's defense is too much for Del Sol to even keep it close.
Liberty 34, Del Sol 6

Coronado should finish second in the Southeast.
Coronado 48, Eldorado 6

Kevin Lucero and Cody Mucino is an underrated one-two punch for the Cougars.
Coronado 40, Eldorado 15

Arbor View's defense might be the best in town.
Arbor View 41, Shadow Ridge 0

Two weeks away from Arbor View at Palo Verde.
Arbor View 33, Shadow Ridge 13

Palo Verde makes quick work of the Mountain Lions.
Palo Verde 53, Sierra Vista 14

Another chance for Ryan Beaulieu to go off for a memorable senior-year game.
Palo Verde 56, Sierra Vista 6

This game will be closer than you think.
Durango 30, Spring Valley 25

No it won't.
Durango 42, Spring Valley 13

Legacy competing in the Southwest League makes me chuckle.
Legacy 42, Desert Oasis 21

Watch out for the Longhorns down the stretch.
Legacy 29, Desert Oasis 20

Remember when Bishop Gorman and Bonanza was a rivalry? I do.
Gorman 64, Bonanza 0

Not to be repetitive, but no, I don't .
Bishop Gorman 63, Bonanza 0

Moapa Valley wins another 'Hammer Game' rivalry
Moapa Valley 46, Virgin Valley 10

More like the 'Nail Game' for Virgin Valley. Moapa Valley is the hammer.
Moapa Valley 35, Virgin Valley 7

Here's my upset of the week: Cheyenne can't stop Faith Lutheran's offense.
Faith Lutheran 40, Cheyenne 33

Myloe Lewis finds enough holes to help Desert Shields win a shootout.

I'll take the better team — my Cowboys.
Chaparral 29, Desert Pines 25

The Jaguars have improved as much as any team in town.
Desert Pines 30, Chaparral 20

Boulder City gets back on track after last week's loss to Moapa Valley.
