Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer open this week's show by discussing the top-ranked high school football team in the nation, Florida's Booker T. Washington, coming to town Friday to take on Bishop Gorman. They then work their way into other pertinent topics, highlighted by a discussion of the definition of "athlete" and whether Green Valley can match Canyon Springs' "quickness".

Foothill High couldn’t have asked for a much better start to Sunrise Southeast play than Friday night’s 62-0 victory at Del Sol High.

“We can find a lot of things we did well and build off of our positives,” said Foothill coach Marty Redmond. “It’s important to get off on the right foot.”

Foothill led 55-0 at halftime and most of the scores were spread around. Quarterback Drew Doxtator tossed three scores to three different receivers and David Persi was the only player to score multiple touchdowns, first on a reception and the second on a punt return.

Foothill has been able to score lately but the most important thing from this victory was that the defense played up to par also. The Falcons gave up 43 and 44 points in their last two victories.

“The defense was much better than we had been playing,” Redmond said. “We didn’t play perfect.”

The Falcons’ third straight victory sends them to 3-2 overall and 1-0 in league play while Del Sol falls to 0-5 overall and 0-1.
