Cibola vs. Clovis

Possible game of the week, these two teams have the talent to win the whole thing.  Cibola has been impressive each and every week while Clovis has already lost three games this season.


Cibola has been one of the top teams in the state all season long.  Offensivley they have been great all season long scoring a very impressive 230 total points in 6 games.  Every one knows their offense is led by one of the top signal callers in Jonathan Mader.  Mader is probably the #2 ranked QB in the state behind Landry Jones and he has done nothing to disappoint this season.  Chase Bennison keeps teams honest with his ability to run the football so teams can't drop extra men in coverage.  The defense has been really good all season just giving up 78 total points on the year.  21 of those points came in week one against La Cueva.  Indiana Jones leads the defense from his LB spot and CB Aaron Scheutze continues to be one of the top CB's in the state. 


Heading into the season we really had a hard time deciding who to rank in the #2 spot behind the obvious #1 in Mayfield.  The two teams we discussed were Cibola who we ended up going with and the other team was Clovis.  Why Clovis?  Why not, each and every year they have been steady and really productive.  They return a ton of talent and great players all over the place.  QB Jordan Mendoza might be the most underrated QB in the state and RB Manuel Robles can flat out run the ball.  CB Jaden Isler is one of the states top juniors.  With all that talent it's hard to figure out why this team has lost three times already this year.  They lost to Mayfield, La Cueva and last week to Goddard.  Their three wins have come against Eldorado, Palo Duro and Rio Rancho.  The one thing that's for sure is this team has played a really hard schedule so far this season. 


When looking at this game Cibola has been great but is their schedule as good as Clovis?  Clovis has talent and better not be looking ahead to their ESPN game next week at Artesia.  Clovis has the talent to win this one but we'll say that Cibola keeps winning and pulls this one out 28-14.
