8 Colorado High School Football Games To Watch In 6 Weeks

class 5a

No. 2 Cherokee Creek (4-1) vs. No. 8 Cherokee Trail (4-1)

when and where: Friday at 7 pm at Legacy Stadium

last meeting: Cherry Creek 49, at Cherokee Trail 7, October 16, 2020

The two-time defending 5A champion Bruins played the Open League against a Cougar team riding a three-game win streak. The Bruins have won 26 straight against Colorado teams and five in a row versus CT. Creek’s strong defense would be challenged by a Cougar attack anchored by CU-bound tackle Travis Gray and a series of weapons that included QB Logan Brooke (1,242 passing yards, 16 TD), WR Jack Pierce (31 receptions, 506 yards) and RB Ciaran. Hyslop (97 carries, 639 yards).

No. 3 Columbine (4-1) vs. Arvada West (4-1)

when and where: Friday at 7 PM at NAAC Stadium

last meeting: Columbine 34, vs A-West 10, October 16, 2020

A resurgent Wildcats program gets another crack two weeks after hanging at the half with No. 2 Cherry Creek, one of the top 5A teams in the state. A-West’s 21 points in that 53–21 loss were the most scored in 14 games against the Bruins. While Columbine’s defense is not as impressive, the rebels have once again joined the 5A elite. His only loss of the season came last week to top-ranked Valor Christian (35-21), and it was a one-off affair entering the fourth quarter.

No. 4 Ralston Valley (5-0) vs Mullen (2-3)

when and where: Friday at 7 p.m. at De La Salle Stadium

last meeting: Ralston Valley 21, vs. Mullen 3, October 15, 2020

Don’t let Mullen’s record fool you. No team in the state has played a more difficult schedule than this. The private school Mustangs face four of the top eight teams in the current 5A poll, beating one (Number 7 Legend). Things are not easy with Ralston Valley. The public school Mustangs have only allowed 9.2 points per game over the course of five weeks – an effort they will need to repeat as they start the 5A JEFCO League gauntlet.

4a No. 2 Pine Creek (5-0) vs No. 7 Legend (4-1)

when and where: Friday at 7 p.m. at Ecopark Stadium

last meeting: Legend 21, vs. Pine Creek 20, November 7, 2020

The Eagles began playing a classification in league play last fall, and paid the price with a heart-wrenching defeat to the Legends that began a three straight losing streak to end the previous season. They now return to the scene with a red-hot QB (Josiah Roy, 1,177 yards total) and defense, which has more tackles for damage (57) than for allowed points (49). Bryce Vaz (101 carries, 700 yards, nine TD) The trailing legend should expect considerable resistance.

class 4a

No. 4 Montrose (5-0) vs No. 1 Palmer Ridge (5-0)

when and where: Friday at 6 p.m. at Don Breeze Stadium

last meeting: Palmer Ridge 42, vs Montrose 20, October 30, 2020

The top-ranked beers are facing the toughest test ever, with Indians set to visit the monument. Montrose has one of its five opponents on touchdowns or less, which should make for an interesting matchup against a bear offense that averages 40.8 points and over 200 with three pass catchers for 446 yards per game. More yards is received in Anthony Costanzo (15-246), Aiden Snow (6-258) and Casey Faccarrell (20-269).

Bear Creek (4-1) vs. No. 3 Dakota Ridge (5-0)

when and where: Friday at 7 p.m. at JEFCO Stadium

last meeting: Dakota Ridge 48, at Bear Creek 14, October 15, 2020

Since surviving a slugfest in Jacksonville, Fla. (23-20 on the First Coast), the Eagles have been a force of nature, knocking out teams 187-36 in four games. Junior RB Noah Triplett has a total of 740 yards and 15 TDs, while senior QB Adam Graves has 817 yards and 10 TDs on his 48-in-75 passing. The Bears, who have an explosive attack of their own led by QB Jaden Minter (1197 passing yards), must match Dakota Ridge’s fireworks to stand a chance.

class 3a

No. 8 Eagle Valley (3-0) vs No. 5 Frederick (3-0)

when and where: Friday at 7 p.m. at Frederick High
