Las Vegas Sun's 2021 High School Football Media Day

Members of the Pahrump Valley High School football team are pictured during the Las Vegas Sun’s high school football media day at the Red Rock Resort on August 3rd, 2021. They include, from left, Zack Cuellar, Dylan Severt and Jay Amaya.

It’s the fourth week of the high school football season. Well, unless you are the Pahrump Valley Trojans.

After having two games canceled out of safety concerns after a positive COVID-19 test — and not necessarily within their program — the Trojans on Friday will host Virgin Valley in the season opener.

The week’s slate of games is highlighted by the Polynesian Football Classic, where Desert Pines, Liberty and Bishop Gorman each face out-of-town opponents.

We predict all the games below, hoping to build off an 8-4 record in Week 3 and 27-9 overall mark.

Basic at Foothill

Foothill rides Kendric Thomas to a Battle for Boulder Highway win. Foothill 32, Basic 29

Orem (Utah) vs. Desert Pines

I don’t care that DP hasn’t played (and barely practiced) in the last two weeks. Jags love the spotlight. Desert Pines 36, Orem 13

Mater Dei vs. Liberty

Closer than you think. Mater Dei 43, Liberty 34

Lone Peak at Bishop Gorman

Wouldn’t be surprised if Gorman went undefeated. Gorman 39, Lone Peak 13

Silverado at Sierra Vista

Could Silverado also be on its way to an undefeated season? Silverado 42, Sierra Vista 0

Centennial at Arbor View

This game all about revenge for Arbor View. Aggies make a statement. Arbor View 30, Centennial 13

Green Valley at Coronado

Despite loss to Palo Verde I’m still high on Green Valley. Green Valley 26, Coronado 24

Eldorado at Western

Anyone have a coin. Eldorado 23, Western 19

Shadow Ridge at Palo Verde

We’ve seen this movie before. Palo Verde again the better team. Palo Verde 22, Shadow Ridge 17

Durango at Spring Valley

This will be the tightest game of the week. Durango 16, Spring Valley 15

Columbine (Colo.) at Faith Lutheran

Top Colorado program grabs road win in Las Vegas. Columbine 33, Faith Lutheran 29

Las Vegas at Chaparral

Tough spot for my Cowboys. Las Vegas 41, Chaparral 12

Virgin Valley at Pahrump Valley

Pahrump is the last team in Nevada (and maybe America) to open the season. Virgin Valley 32, Pahrump 12

Bonanza at Desert Oasis

Desert Oasis could be a sleeper in the class 4A. I wouldn’t want to face Stott in an elimination game. Desert Oasis 43, Bonanza 6

Rancho vs. Slam

Back to back wins for Slam. Slam 20, Rancho 12
