Scorebook Live California’s Connor Morrissette makes his LA City Section football picks every Thursday during the high school football season. He takes a shot at predicting Week 9 games below.
Dorsey vs. Crenshaw
Crenshaw has dominated every Coliseum League team they’ve faced so far this season and Friday will be no different. Dorsey lost to Locke 27-0 earlier in the year and Crenshaw beat Locke 45-21 last week. This once greatly competitive rivalry will be lopsided in 2019.
The pick: Crenshaw
Westchester vs. Venice
Westchester has senior quarterback Jeliun Carter back from a knee injury this week, but how could anyone pick against Venice following last week’s 63-32 shellacking of Fairfax?
The pick: Venice
El Camino Real vs. Cleveland
Cleveland lost a bit of a surprising one to Granada Hills last week, how will that affect the team this week? On paper, this week’s game is too close to call. CalPreps likes Elco 24-21. The Conquistadors better have a plan to stop Cavalier RB Kariem Muhammad.
The pick: El Camino Real
Overall record: 43-19
