Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer engage in a wide-ranging high school football conversation. In addition to their usual recap and upcoming picks, they discuss the area's best kickers.
Most teams would panic at the idea of having 57 seconds to go 80 yards to win a football game. To Green Valley, it’s only a slight inconvenience.
“It’s the way we run our offense,” Green Valley coach Brian Castro said. “With our speed and tempo, we feel like we’re never out of a game.”
Olim directed the finishing drive, which saw a key play come on a third-down conversion when Tevis Labrador caught a 39-yard pass.
Olim finished with 261 yards and three touchdowns on 20-for-44 passing. Running back Aaron Love scored two touchdowns to go with 176 yards.
The game was back and forth all night, with a lead change coming practically every time either team scored. Green Valley trailed by 3 at halftime but scored first in the second half.
With the win, the Gators are alone in first place in the Southeast Division.
“It feels good, but we’re not happy yet,” Castro said. “We know it’s a battle every week.”
