Las Vegas Sun sports reporters discuss "GPS Friday", when they headed out to North Las Vegas to get a handle on a few non-Henderson, non-Gorman teams. Who's better: Palo Verde or Arbor View? Is Centennial still a cinch for the playoffs despite a rough start? Listen for a conversation on those topics as well as many more.
Bradley Alexander II passed for two touchdowns and rushed for another today in leading the Canyon Springs High football team to a 30-14 victory against host Basic.
Despite having turnovers on three consecutive offensive plays, Canyon Springs opened the game with 23 unanswered points in improving to 3-0 on the season.
“It’s scary how good we can be when we are hitting on all cylinders,” Pioneers coach Hunkie Cooper said. “Our offense is just babies. They are all junior. They need to grow up and they need to grow up right away.”
Cooper estimates his team has committed about 20 turnovers in just three games — a stat that won’t win them many games later in the season.
“If we don’t take better care of the football it will be a wasted season,” Cooper said. “But (the players) on our defense won’t say a word. I know they are upset at the offense, but they just put their helmets back on and go play.”
Alexander connected with Kujaun Casey on a 75-yard scoring strike and found Isaac Woods for an 8-yard touchdown. Alexander also scored on about a 50-yard run.
“We have some kids at wide receiver that can make plays and they can run,” Cooper said.
Zaviontay Stevenson added to the Canyon Springs attack with a 90-yard kickoff return for a touchdown to open the second half.
