Coming back re-loaded from its first state championship appearance in 2012 (a loss to Hamilton), the Mountain Pointe football season began at the Barry Sollenberger Classic in Las Vegas, a place where whatever happens there is supposed to stay there. Only it didn’t. What Mountain Pointe did to Nevada-powerhouse Bishop Gorman in the opening-week victory was televised nationally and became the appetizer and the impetus to finishing No. 6 in the final MaxPreps national poll. The Pride went 14-0 in convincing fashion with the closest margin of victory being 10 points as they fulfilled senior lineman Natrell Curtis’ preseason promise to earn a ring. The offense was multifaceted, the defense was as physical and fast as any this state has seen according to several opposing coaches, and the coaching staff made all the right decisions to give the Mountain Pointe its first state football title, which vaulted the Pride to No. 6 nationally, according to MaxPreps.com.

No. 4 Desert Ridge vs. No. 1 Mountain Pointe (at McClintock H.S.): The easy pick is Mountain Pointe. After all, the Pride have been in a league of their from day 1 when they beat Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas) on Gorman’s home field in late August. Nobody has stopped the Pride since, a rare combination of offensive balance, a defense, clearly defined leaders, excellent coaching, and something of a chip on their shoulder after losing handily in last year’s state championship game. Desert Ridge possess much the same, yet because of a little-used passing game and wonderment about the competition it’s faced to date, question marks still linger. The Jaguars are going to use Player of the Year candidate Taren Morrison and run right at the Pride, testing Mountain Pointe’s willingness to be physical and disciplined on every snap the entire game. Miss one, and Morrison is gone; the big plays are how Desert Ridge has broken the big-school, single-season rushing record. The difference here being Mountain Pointe’s defense is about as good as Desert Ridge has seen this year, and the Pride’s balance on offense tips the scales ever so slightly. As with all games, coaching at this level is pretty much a wash because how good they are with game plans and adjustments. If rain is a factor, Desert Ridge might gain an advantage on a slow, wet field. If not, it’s hard to go against the grain, even if it’ll be a tremendous game.
Prediction: Mountain Pointe 24, Desert Ridge 21
