Week 5 Idaho High School Football Preview: Best Games To Watch, Players To Watch, Score Predictions

Here’s an inside look at the best high school football games across the state of Idaho during the fifth full weekend of 2022.

CLASS 5A

NO. 4 HIGHLAND RAMS (2-2) at NO. 2 MERIDIO WARRIORS (4-0)

7 pm (MST) Friday at Meridian High School

Game nugget: Only the fourth meeting between the two shows since 2004.

How do the Rams win?: One word – defense. Highland has held its last two opponents under 236 yards of total offense. Defense against the run will have to be a particular point of emphasis. Meridian has run the ball down everyone’s throat by averaging 224 yards per game this season. So the play of the linebacking corps (Mason Fullmer, Colton George and Gunner Wilhelm) will be key. They need to get second-year quarterback Zeke Martinez to beat them.
