Barnett makes history with all-time TD record: Erie QB Blake Barnett was chasing Colorado prep history this season and he caught it last weekend.

Barnett had his hand in six touchdowns in the 57-13 trouncing over Longmont. That ran his prep touchdown mark to 145 – a Colorado record. The old TD record was 141 by former Valor Christian standout and current San Francisco 49ers star Christian McCaffrey.

The dynamic Barnett, who is headed to play for Kansas State in the fall, has thrown for 81 TDs, rushed for 61, has 1 receiving TD, 1 punt return for a score and 1 interception for a pick-six in his decorated career. Barnett and the Class 4A Tigers (8-1), who are ranked No. 2 in the Colorado Preps latest poll, will look to keep rolling at Greeley West (1-8) at 1 p.m. Saturday.

This season, Barnett has 1,513 yards passing, including tossing 22 TDs and he has 692 yards rushing and 16 TDs.

Fly like an Eagle: Fresh off a stunning upset loss to Legend 28-16 a week earlier, Pine Creek needed a bounce back performance and the Eagles received one from junior Jonathan Coar.

The RB rushed for 229 yards on 27 carries and scored four touchdowns as the Eagles held on for a 33-27 victory over Douglas County. Pine Creek led at one point 33-6 and then did enough to win from that point on. Coar is averaging 122 yards rushing per game and has 979 yards on the ground for the season and 10 scores.

Coar should add to his totals when the 5A Eagles, who are No. 5 in Colorado Preps poll, visit winless Chapparal (0-9) at 7 p.m. Friday.

Cam rams Broomfield to win: Broomfield senior RB Cam Meehan scored twice as the Eagles defeated Fruita Monument 21-6. It ran Broomfield’s record to 7-2 overall. Meehan now has 462 yards rushing and nine TDs. He also has 16 receptions for 247 yards. The Eagles will try and keep their momentum going when they host Heritage (6-3) at 7 p.m. Friday. Broomfield is No. 4 in the Class 4A Colorado Preps poll.

Class 5A

No. 1 Cherry Creek (9-0) at No. 10 Grandview (6-3), (Fri., 7 p.m.) WATCH LIVE

The Bruins are coming off their closest game of the season – a 24-14 decision over Arapahoe, the No. 3-ranked team in the Colorado Preps poll. With QB Brady Vodicka and running back Jordan Herron leading the way Creek snared the hard-fought victory. Cherry Creek has been stellar the entire season, outscoring its opponents 340-82. Grandview will try and rebound after suffering a last-second defeat to Cherokee Trail (4-5) last week. Grandview senior QB Liam Szarka (1,954 yards passing and 384 yards rushing and 29 combined TDs) is going to have to be at his best if an upset will happen.

Class 4A

No. 3 Montrose (7-2) at Pueblo West (6-3), (Fri., 6 p.m.)

The Red Hawks are trying to stay in the state championship title talk conversation. They are sitting behind powerhouse Palmer Ridge and Erie in the latest Colorado Preps poll, which are also the only teams the Red Hawks have lost to in 2023. Montrose is coming off a 43-12 dismantling of No. 8-ranked Mesa Ridge last week. Blake Griffin and Austin Zimmer led the way against the Grizzlies, and they will have to do the same against West. The Red Hawks are trying to run their winning streak to seven games. The Cyclones, after back-to-back defeats to Mesa Ridge (36-34) and Palmer Ridge (42-7), have claimed two wins in a row over Falcon (33-19) and Coronado (41-6). West will have to play flawless football, with plenty of balance, if it wants to spring the upset.

Class 3A

No. 9 Pueblo Central (7-1) at Harrison (1-7) (Fri., 7 p.m.)

After hovering around the Top 10 for several weeks, the Wildcats moved up to No. 9 in the Colorado Preps poll, thanks to grinding out a 29-22 decision over No. 10-ranked Lewis-Palmer last week.

Central is the best 3A team in Pueblo this season and the Wildcats will try and keep roaring when they meet Harrison (1-7). Central has a smashmouth running game paced by senior Michael Montoya (809 yards rushing and 16 TDs) and junior Amari Brown (738 yards and nine TDs). The Wildcats will try not to overlook Harrison as they have southside rival – the surging Pueblo South Colts (4-4) on the schedule for Nov. 3. The Colts defeated this same Harrison team 40-7 last week and should take care of Pueblo Centennial (0-8) at 7 p.m., Thursday.
