Game Preview: Manzano vs. Highland

Manzano has been one of the best teams in New Mexico this season. They look to stay on track against a talented Highland squad.

Manzano vs. Highland
Manzano has been one of the better teams in New Mexico all season long.  They have had several big wins and have made the state take notice just how good they are.  Junior RB Jordan Llamas has lived up the hype and is having an all state type season.  He will be heavily counted upon this game and the rest of the season to keep producing yards on the ground.  Big Mike Long has been very good on the offensive line and WR Nick Linden provides insurance against the run game.

Highland is a tough team to call at this point.  They sit here with a decent record but the question everyone has is how impressive is their record.  In reality who have they beaten.  This week if they can knock off a talented squad like Manzano that will go a long way in proving how good they are.  Brennon Howell and Dylan Chavez have been the main ball carriers this season and they form a solid 1, 2 punch out of the backfield.  Rolando Trammel may be one of the most underrated players in all of New Mexico.  He has speed to burn if he hits the corner look out.

This is a very interesting game, but we will go with the hot hand and pick Manzano 24-10.
