Patriot East League
Sterling sits alone atop the Patriot East League standings. They have not locked up the league title and the league title will be decided this week when they face Weld Central. Weld Central has been a big surprise this year and kept their league title hopes alive last week beating Brush 21-14. Weld Central will not have to play their best game of the season. Offensively Weld Central will look to RB Zayne Stam and QB Levi Gerkin. These two are critical to Weld Central offense getting going. Defensively Weld Central will faced a balanced offensive attack. They will look to stun a top team and I think it will be because of their defense if they do. Sterling is hoping to lock up a top 3 seed. Sterling has played a tough schedule and taken care of every game inside Colorado this year. Sterling offensively runs through QB Brock Shalla. If he has a big game, then Sterling will have plenty of success. Defensively Sterling is the real deal. Against Colorado teams Sterling has given up just 58 points this season and have given up just over 14 points twice. I am not sure of the tie breaker for the Patriot East league. Platte Valley is the only team besides Weld Central and Sterling to Mention. Platte Valley travels to Brush this weekend. Platte Valley sits at #10 in the RPI and are a near lock. A win over Brush locks them in but a loss makes things a bit more interesting.
