Dallas Skyline has become a bit of a mythical high school football beast this year.
It's only natural for a team that is as loaded with talent as the Raiders are -- nine Division I commits and all.
But tonight, the Raiders (3-0) will get their first legitimate test when they play Lake Highlands (2-1) tonight at 7:30 p.m., and for that reason, I've deemed this game to be my game of the week.
Skyline is led on offense by QB Javia Hall and RB Tony Drake, and the Raiders average 43.7 points per game on offense. Their defense is maybe more impressive, led by linebacker Corey Nelson.
Skyline will score, and Lake Highlands will have to as well. In last week's win over Garland, Lake Highlands managed just one score in its 7-6 win. The Wildcats are led offensively by dual-threat QB Ricky Zorn. The Wildcats average right around 400 yards per game, but their defense holds opponents to 275 per game, which should make for an interesting matchup with Skyline's high-octane offensive machine.
Prediction: Skyline 31, Lake Highland 17
