  1. Gorman losing this game will gravely impact their national rank which is getting so much attention right now. MaxPreps has Gorman now slipped down into the high 30's. Rivals still shows top 10, and USA today top 20. Rivals however I think is the least-credible of the ranking systems.

    This will be an interesting weekend for football.

  2. Gorman is #7 on Rivals, #11 on Maxpreps and #15 on USA Today. Servite is #8 on USA Today. I believe Gorman will end up beating Servite by 10+ pts. Tuasdad is right in that Servite is not like Armwood. Gorman is faster, bigger and more athletic than Servite and will have the home field advantage in not having to travel. With a win over Servite, Gorman will be in the top 10 in all three polls. Whether or not we are supporters of Gorman, it will be good for the overall reputation of Southern Nevada high school football if Gorman can be in the top 10 in all three polls.

  3. Unless I'm seeing it wrong Ray I see MaxPreps showing them with a national rank of 39.

    Xcellent 25 Rank: 11 National Rank: 39State (NV) Rank: 1

  4. Expal, i am very familiar with Southern Calfornia high school football and Servite is now definitely the top program. They have jumped traditional power Mater Dei as the top program. The matchup is basically the top Southern California program vs. the top Southern Nevada program. I believe Gorman varsity, JV and Freshmen will all end up winning in very competitive games mainly due to the home field advantage of not having to travel. If the games were played in Southern California, i believe Servite teams would have the edge.
