The week of Oct. 2
Brewer vs. Silver
Las Vegas Sun reporters Ray Brewer and
Steve Silver attempt to pick
the winning team from prep contests
across the Las Vegas area.
Physical Del Sol runs over Basic — just like last year.
Del Sol 32, Basic 19
This game has "instant classic" written all over it. Dragons narrowly edge Wolves.
Del Sol 28, Basic 24
Cimarron controls the line of scrimmage to hand Legacy its first loss.
Cimarron 20, Legacy 14
Cimarron's rushing attack is nearly unstoppable, plus they have a beastly defensive line.
Cimarron 30, Legacy 13
Silverado is the last team in the 4A classification to open league play.
Silverado 40, Coronado 13
Silverado's double-T offense is deadly. By that I mean Trenton Tipton.
Silverado 35, Coronado 17
I'm on the Liberty bandwagon.
Liberty 30, Foothill 22
I learned my lesson picking Green Valley over Liberty last week.
Liberty 27, Foothill 20
Gorman shows national television audience it's an elite team.
Gorman 46, Green Valley 9
Gorman will win, because it's Gorman, but it won't be so easy.
Gorman 34, Green Valley 21
Cowboys beat longtime rival for first win.
Chaparral 19, Valley 16
Valley seemed hopeless against Las Vegas last week, but I'm picking them to just annoy Brewer.
Valley 20, Chaparral 19
Canyon Springs is better than most people think. They upset Desert Pines.
Canyon Springs 36, Desert Pines 27
This one is a coin flip, but in an effort to catch Brewer I'll go with the Jaguars.
Desert Pines 24, Canyon Springs 20
Eldorado coach Evans won a state championship as a player at Rancho. His Sundevils will win Friday.
Eldorado 18, Rancho 8
Rancho lost to a 3A team? Are you serious?
Eldorado 28, Rancho 7
The Trailblazers — yes, the same team that only won once last year — wins again.
Durango 50, Pahrump 13
I think Durango could be a playoff contender.
Durango 42, Pahrump 7
Bonanza should make the playoffs for a second straight season this fall.
Bonanza 38, Western 17
Not much of a contest here.
Bonanza 28, Western 10
Upset alert. Desert Oasis rides the momentum from a good effort against Gorman.
Desert Oasis 23, Spring Valley 21
The Grizzlies are still fuming from a close loss to Durango. That makes them extra dangerous.
Spring Valley 31, Desert Oasis 21
Clark's Clay has a field day against the Mountain Lions.
Clark 34, Sierra Vista 6
Another win for Clark. Maybe this is a .500 year?
Clark 21, Sierra Vista 7
Arbor View gets back on track against struggling Mustangs.
Arbor View 23, Shadow Ridge 14
Every week I get burned by Arbor View. One more chance couldn't hurt.
Arbor View 24, Shadow Ridge 10
Palo Verde turns Northwest rivalry game turns into lopsided affair.
Palo Verde 40, Cheyenne 12
Palo is simply too tough and too talented.
Palo Verde 42, Cheyenne 14
Centennial wins again to get back into the Northwest race.
Centennial 33, Mojave 6
If Centennial fails to pick up this easy win, then forget about playoffs.
Centennial 28, Mojave 9
