This week’s matchup:

Reed at Douglas, 7 p.m.

Douglas (0-2, 0-0) is in the midst of a seven-game skid against the defending regional champion Raiders. That, coupled with Reed’s overpowering performance against Foothill, Calif., in Week 1 of the season, makes this a tough matchup for the Tigers. Douglas has shown stretches of being a very solid team. Perhaps this is the week the Tigers can start to put it all together.

“We’ve put a lot of time into addressing special teams this week,” Douglas head coach Ernie Monfiletto said. “We’ve had a higher emphasis on it. The kids responded well to it.
 
“I think the kids have a confidence about their ability and what they can do. Physically we are there. Now it’s about eliminating mistakes and that starts with the staff, starts with me. It’s our job to get the kids in position to perform and now we’ll see how they perform.”
It’s Douglas’ Hall of Fame game, and the Tigers will induct its 2013 class of five  at 6:45 p.m., just before the game.
 
This year’s class includes two-time Northern 4A Player of the Year Luke Rippee (2001-2003), Andy McIntosh (2001-2003), Ken Benson (1964-66), Scott Lake (1988-90), Rodney Williams (1990-91).

What to look for:

Reed is big up front, as always, and has nearly unparalleled talent at the skill positions. Running back Jordan Deleon (5-10, 217 pounds) is an early Offensive Player of the Year candidate for the region. Trae Wells is as good as Douglas is going to see at the receiver position this season, which will make it more difficult for the Tigers to key on stopping the run.

Forget for a second that Douglas has lost its first two games. The Tigers are as experienced as they have been on the front line for quite some time and they showed they can match a big, physical line punch for punch last week against McQueen. Don’t discount the Tiger run defense, either. Reed is known for spreading the ball around, but that starts with having the running game to keep defenses honest in the middle of the field. If Douglas can get some early stops, this is a wide-open game.

What’s happening around the league this week:

Friday

North Valleys at Bishop Manogue, 7 p.m.; McQueen at Carson, 7p.m.; Damonte Ranch at Hug, 7:30 p.m.; Reed at Douglas, 7 p.m.; Reno at Galena, 7 p.m.

Saturday

Spanish Springs at Scott’s Valley, Calif., 2 p.m.

My picks (I never pick the Douglas game):

Manogue over North Valleys, McQueen over Carson, Damonte Ranch over Hug, Galena over Reno and I know nothing of Scott’s Valley, so no pick for the Spanish Springs game.

What we learned in Week 2:

The shocker of the week was Damonte over Spanish Springs. Spanish Springs is picked by many, including myself, to play in the regional title game this year. But this was their first game, and they’d been confined indoors like everyone else. The difference? Spanish Springs’ offense works largely on precision passing and timing routes – two things they couldn’t work much on. And Damonte can play some pretty stout defense. It added up to an upset. Reno has tough wins over Carson and Douglas – two teams it lost to last season, and suddenly looks like a real player on the High Desert side of the standings. Don’t ignore what Galena is doing. Two weeks, two dominating wins. They see Spanish Springs this year, but miss Reed and McQueen. They could come into the Oct. 4 Douglas matchup unbeaten.
