Hello Dekalb county Football fans. Three weeks left in regular season, with a lot of region championships and playoff spots left to be determined. We have three big 2A Region 7 games this week, we also have two 3A region7 games. Fort Payne  plays a big non region game against Gardendale,  A good Jacksonville Christian team comes to Valley Head and White Plains travels to Crossville where somebody will get their first region win in this game. Let’s get to  picking games.

Gardendale (6-1) at Fort Payne (6-1) The Rockets lost their first game and won the next six. The Wildcats are coming off a big rivalry game win last week. Turner showed up and showed out. Wildcats should keep this game close but the Rockets are on a roll scoring nearly 40 pts. A game and holding their opponents under 20 pts a game. More Wildcats than Turner will have to play extraordinary to beat the Rockets.  Rockets win.

Plainview (4-3) at Brindlee Mountain (1-6)  Brindlee  is having a awful year with a lone win. Brindlee can hang their hope on playing at home, not enough. The Bears are hitting their stride after another thrilling win last week scoring the winning touchdown with less than a minute to play against their rival.

Duke’s passing will be to much and add in the thunder and lighting running of J.D. Martin and Mueller, throw in some big catches by Kirk and Hughes and lights out defense. This game could get ugly fast. Bears win BIG.

Geraldine (4-3) at Sylvania (1-6) The Rams are trying hard week in out week out. Dicus and Roebuck will have to lead the offense that got shut out last week. Defense is lead by Dover and Griffen. The defense is young and gaining experience every game. The Bulldogs are playing hard nose ground and pound with a three headed monster lead by Hood with Willoughby and Jiminez running strong. Defense is strong up the middle against the run . Bulldogs win in a dominating  style.

Jacksonville Christian (3-3) at Valley Head (2-4) The Thunder (J.C.A) is flashy at times but when they play ugly it’s really ugly. They should come to Valley Head looking for a big win. But Whoa Nellie after a pretty good but whipping by Fyffe, the Tiger’s are ready to do a little whipping of their own on the Thunder.  Harrison will play good and handle the offense giving the ball to Leps . Nixs will keep defense under control  and Tiger’s win at Home.

White Plains (1-6) at Crossville (0-7) This will be a great opportunity for the Lions to snap their nineteen game losing streak . Wildcats have one win on the season and averaging about ten points a game while defense is allowing around thirty points a game. That’s good news for the Lions. Pointer should be licking his chops, Simpson should run like O.J. Simpson and Jones and Dismuke hope to sprint by the Wildcats defense.  The streak ends, Lions WIN!!!

Cleveland (7-0) at Ider (4-3) The Hornets started out the season like ball of fire but lately have had some water throwed on them. Hornets Quarter back Dobbins will need to be healthy and playing good to have a chance . Palmer and Higdon will have to find their groove running the ball and hitting the holes hard with no dancing outside. The Panther’s have one of the best quarterbacks you will see this year in high school football  (Peyton Gilliland ) he throws the ball with accuracy and can tuck it and run if he gets in trouble . I think the Panther’s will find the Hornets weak spot and hammer it home to a big win.

West End (4-3) at Fyffe  (6-1) The boys from Walnut Grove come to Fyffe,  they are having a pretty good year but that want be good enough when your playing the State Champs. The walnuts will play tough for maybe a half. Fyffe plays every game with the will to out condition their opponents week in and week out. Kilpatrick got plenty of rest with only 2 carries last week. He should run like a wild man Friday, Benefield looks more and more rock solid each week. Ashley, Collins and Anderson are always a threat to break a long one every time they get the ball. The defense looks like a defense on a mission to win another state championship. R . Martin, D. Martin, Butts , Hosch and Big E. JONES. FYFFE WINS

Collinsville (5-2) at Gaston  (5-2) The game of the week.  The Bulldogs got a big region win last week against West End . Bulldogs throw the ball around good and have a very athletic quarterback. Defense is a little suspect because they know the offense can score a lot of points. The Panther’s have four player’s who have a nose for the endzone.  Jones directs the offense with 11 touchdown passes this year and then Reed has 10 total touchdowns,  Blakely has 8 touchdowns and Nash has 5 touchdowns. Could be a shootout at Gaston this week , with only one hold back both teams have to play DEFENSE ALSO. The Bulldogs have had 92 points scored on them in last 2 games. Panther’s are allowing just under 20 points a game. The Panther’s Four Horsemen win the game. See you at the game, save me some nacho’s.
