Hinckley's Picks

Palo Verde and McQueen both enter the state championship game undefeated. However, McQueen's perfect record is watered down as it has beaten several inferiors opponents from Northern Nevada. Palo Verde has five legitimate Division I players who will give the Lancers fits from the opening kickoff to the final whistle. Plus, McQueen doesn't have an answer for Palo Verde's speed. Take the Panthers in a blowout.
Palo Verde 41, Mcqueen 10

Palo Verde cruised through the playoffs and is playing as well as any team can. But I picked McQueen at the start of the season and I'm sticking with it. McQueen features a nearly 1,800 yard rusher and its defense has only given up 88 points.
McQueen 28, Palo Verde 24
