    • Pag Meter Line Central -9
    • Thursday night football is a strange night and I have seen many of strange things and many upsets. Why? I think it’s because the crowds are small and the players are not fired up to play on Thursday.
    • For the Broncos to win and pull the upset, they have to run the ball and play great defense.
    • Could the Grizzlies have a Cougars hangover from the big win last Friday?  Clovis North is a team that has not reach their full potential as of yet. Maybe they will…maybe they won’t.  Will the Broncos have a breakout game?
    • The Grizzlies are the Mike Tyson of high school football in that they want to knock you out early and coast in the 2nd half. Clovis got down 14-0 in the 1st quarter last week and hung around.
    • Can Clovis North avoid the early knock out?
    • There are a bunch of X factors in this game.
    • Can CN slow down red hot sophomore QB Trent Tompkins who has throw for 1,848 yards with 21 TD passes? Tompkins is the most unorthodox and best QB I have seen. The form is a little strange but Trent is spot on and that’s what matters.
    • Can Broncos QB Brent Bailey who plays like Tim Tebow have his best game against a very good Grizzlies defense that will bring plenty of pressure?
    • Can the Broncos run between the tackles and work the play action pass offense?
    • Will the Broncos have a great game plan against a very dangerous team? Did not

    • When Edison won the valley championship in 2014, they had one loss going 13-1 and the only loss was to Sanger. Sanger is inline to go 10-0 so can Edison return the favor?
    • For Edison to win and they have the talent to do it, they need to win the battle at the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball and the coaches must have to brilliant game plan.
    • The 2 player X factor are Sanger’s sophomore QB Jalen Cropper and Tigers wide receiver Teyjohn Harrington. Both are so dangerous.
    • Can the Tigers keep Cropper in check and the Tigers must get the ball to Harrington a bunch of times because he is lightning!
