The last time Coronado beat Silverado, I was in middle school.
Silverado 21, Coronado 17

New QB and RB, same result for Vegas.
Las Vegas 42, Desert Oasis 18

Jay Mattox is one of the most exciting talents in the city. That's saying a lot for a kicker.
Las Vegas 31, Desert Oasis 24

I won't back down on my previous statement — Arbor View wins by 40.
Arbor View 50, Green Valley 10

Yeah, this one won't be close. All in with the Aggies.
Arbor View 36, Green Valley 14

Basic is going to make several teams look bad this fall, starting with Rancho.
Basic 40, Rancho 0

It's Devonte Boyd's senior year. You don't want to miss this.
Basic 42, Rancho 13

Valley is a dark horse in the Northeast to make the playoffs.
Valley 34, Spring Valley 19

The best is yet to come from Spring Valley quarterback Brant Berglund.
Spring Valley 30, Valley 20

Centennial avoids hangover from big win — barely.
Centennial 24, Durango 23

I want to take the Trailblazers so badly, but the Bulldogs deserve some love after last week.
Centennial 28, Durango 27

Palo Verde is still one of the town's elite teams.
Palo Verde 53, Bonanza 7

Palo Verde is going to let out some anger on Bonanza.
Palo Verde 42, Bonanza 0

No surprise here: I love Del Sol.
Del Sol 37, Cimarron 23

Justin Davis is no joke. Spartans in an upset.
Cimarron 21, Del Sol 16

California teams always spell disaster for Nevada schools.
Ayala 43, Cheyenne 12

Wasn't it just a week ago that Brewer proclaimed he'd never pick against Cheyenne?
Ayala 34, Cheyenne 21

Moapa Valley's rushing attack too much for Faith to contain.
Moapa Valley 30, Faith Lutheran 13

Pirates are in a groove now.
Moapa Valley 35, Faith Lutheran 16

Here's my upset of the week. Mojave has too much speed for Virgin Valley to contain.
Mojave 23, Virgin Valley 21

Oh no, not the speed argument again.
Virgin Valley 28, Mojave 14

Three cheers for the BC Eagles. I never would have expected a 3-0 start.
Boulder City 40, Pahrump Valley 6

Eagles play defense as well as any team in town.
Boulder City 48, Pahrump Valley 8

Three straight weeks picking my Cowboys. Yes, they are improved.
Chaparral 45, Western 7

Cowboys are painfully close to being 3-0.
Chaparral 34, Western 0

Eldorado opens the season with the victory.
Eldorado 30, Sunrise Mountain 19

Sundevils schedule gets increasingly tougher as season goes on, but this is a winnable game to start.
Eldorado 27, Sunrise Mountain 13

Legacy is going to be a tough out come the playoffs.
Legacy 46, Shadow Ridge 14

Impressed by how Legacy nearly pulled out a win in Utah, but the defense needs to improve.
Legacy 31, Shadow Ridge 10

It took a few weeks for the Desert Pines players to get in shape.
Desert Pines 38, Clark 13

A little concerned with the Jaguars, even though they should beat the Chargers with ease.
Desert Pines 27, Clark 13
