The Bishop Gorman boys and Centennial girls are clear favorites once again, but there are some sleepers that could do some damage in the postseason.
Which league is the most competitive? What are some can’t-miss player matchups? Can anybody upend the Gorman boys and Centennial girls dynasties?
Here is the 2019 Nevada Preps All-Southern Nevada football team.
Bishop Gorman, Green Valley, Liberty and Silverado hosting first-round games. Arbor View and Palo Verde meet with a Mountain Region home playoff game on the line.
The Palo Verde boys defeated Coronado 10-2 to win their fourth straight title. The girls doubled up Coronado 10-5 to end the Cougars’ hopes of a third straight crown.
Centennial needs a win over a Cimarron-Memorial team that is out of the playoff race to claim its first league title since 2002 and the No. 1 seed in the Northwest League.
Martin Blake ran for 113 yards and a touchdown and returned a punt for a score to help the Pioneers to a 48-7 Southeast League win over Eldorado.
Desert Oasis needs a win and help to reach the postseason from the Southwest League. Foothill and Chaparral will decide the Southeast’s situation on the field.
The Chargers have earned all of their three league wins in dramatic fashion by a total of 15 points, but their 49-48 win over Desert Oasis clinched a playoff berth.
The Friday game was suspended, and a review is underway by the Southern Nevada Officials Association and the NIAA. A double forfeiture is the likely outcome.
