Prep Sports Now

Guest host joins the show

The Sun’s Mike Grimala comes out of the bullpen to spell Case Keefer on this week’s Prep Sports Now. Mike joins Ray Brewer to take a look at all of the Week 8 action.

This is shaping up to be a great week of high school football games.

In the class 5A, Liberty and Green Valley square off in a battle of undefeated league opponents, while Foothill looks to extend its winning streak to four games when taking on Arbor View.

In the class 4A, Shadow Ridge battles Coronado in a matchup of teams with state championship goals, and Basic travels to Durango.

The class 3A also has a few interesting games with Eldorado playing Rancho, and SLAM Academy against Boulder City.

The picks column is 79-21 overall for the season through seven weeks — even with going 12-6 last week.
