Bay Area News Group high school football predictions: Week 11, 2022

Not too long ago, nobody locally would pick against De La Salle on a football field.

This week, two of the three panelists in the Bay Area News Group’s picks competition did just that.

Mike Lefkow and The Kid — Joseph Dycus — picked Clayton Valley Charter to become the first North Coast Section team in 31 years to defeat the Spartans.

The teams play Friday night at Clayton Valley.

And not only did Dycus, who has covered both teams this season, pick Clayton Valley, but he also predicted the Ugly Eagles to win big.

How big?

Here’s his pick: Clayton Valley 35, De La Salle 17.

“I just think that Clayton Valley has the offense to put up points,” Dycus said, adding that De La Salle’s offense hasn’t been as effective as those of the program’s predecessors.

Yours truly, who holds a four-game lead over Lefkow and an 11-game advantage over The Kid in the season standings, picked De La Salle to win narrowly.

The Spartans are 261-0-1 against NCS teams since losing to Pittsburg in 1991.

The tie was 17-17 against Clayton Valley in 2004.

“I think the one good thing about it is that we’re divided on who we’re picking as the winner,” Lefkow said. “You never picked against De La Salle in the past. Now at least two of us are. Things are coming back to being a little more even now.”

We pick 17 games in Week 11, including St. Francis vs. Archbishop Mitty, Christopher vs. Live Oak and Livermore vs. Granada.

In our show, we discuss the upcoming sectional playoffs — specifically, what we’re most looking to see when the brackets come out Sunday — and more.
