The week of Sept. 11

Steve Silver attempt to pick
the winning team from prep contests
across the Las Vegas area.
Palo Verde struggles against up-and-coming Foothill squad, but still picks up win.

Palo Verde struggling? Give me a break.

Cimarron shows Arbor View how to win in the Northwest Division — by being physical.
Cimarron 28, Arbor View 19
Fear the underdog. Aggies will shock the valley with a road upset.

Stratton wins his Coronado coaching debut.
Coronado 27, Eldorado 17
Coronado won’t have many wins this season, but this could be one of them.
Coronado 20, Eldorado 13
Del Sol rushing attack too much for Rams.
Del Sol 40, Rancho 12
I learned my lesson picking against Del Sol in week 1.

Gators’ QB Jordan Corbett posts a breakout performance.

Liberty is better than you think.
Liberty 18, Chaparral 6
Chaparral should revoke Brewer’s diploma for picking against them. Luckily I have no allegiances in this game and neither does the horde of Coronado transfers at Liberty.
Liberty 24, Chaparral 13
Silverado starting to build confidence with another lopsided win.
Silverado 33, Valley 6
I definitely believed the preseason Valley hype. Not anymore.

Bonanza might be the Southwest’s second best team.

Bonanza keeps the momentum rolling from big win over Sierra Vista.

The week’s most competitive game will be won by Durango — late.
Durango 29, Desert Oasis 27
Can Durango recover from last week’s blowout loss to Bishop Gorman? Doubtful.
Desert Oasis 35, Durango 30
Both schools don’t want to play this game.
Gorman 50, Pahrump 0
This is going to be ugly.
Gorman 42, Pahrump 6
Spring Valley makes quick work of rebuilding Sierra Vista.
Spring Valley 30, Sierra Vista 14
Spring Valley turned some heads last week. Time to keep rolling.
Spring Valley 24, Sierra Vista 7
Shadow Ridge thinks it can make the playoffs in the Northwest. A win against Cheyenne is a good start.

Cheyenne has yet to score more than one touchdown in two games this season.
Shadow Ridge 21, Cheyenne 7

Centennial 14, Faith Lutheran 13
This is a must-win for Centennial to compete for a playoff spot in the tough Northwest Division.
Centennial 20, Faith Lutheran 10
Legacy has no struggles against a struggling Mojave squad.
Legacy 44, Mojave 6
No-brainer on this one.
Legacy 35, Mojave 7
Desert Pines makes amends for last week’s collapse against Basic.
Desert Pines 39, Western 12
I really think Desert Pines is just a bunch of hype, but it’s hard to pick against them this week.
