Swenson's 7 touchdown passes gives Las Vegas playoff win aganst Basic
Saturday, November 9, 2013
high school football:
What a difference a week makes for the Las Vegas High football team. That’s especially true for its junior quarterback, Trevor Swenson. Swenson passed for more than 400 yards and seven touchdowns Friday, connecting four times with Aaron Zanin-Banks for scoring strikes in a 63-24 victory against host Basic in the Sunrise Regional quarterfinals. Just last week Swenson had one of his worst games of the season, struggling against Canyon Springs’ stingy defense in a humbling loss, dropping Las Vegas to the No. 3 seed and a road game to start the playoffs.

Canyon Springs High football coach Hunkie Cooper has been around the game for decades and has never seen a play like this. The same is true for Las Vegas High’s James Thurman. Canyon Springs, holding a seven-point lead late in the third quarter Friday against host Las Vegas, was forced to punt from inside its own territory.

Rancho won't go down without a fight in 'Bone Game'

ray brewer: Despite losing storied rivalry game against Las Vegas High the past 17 seasons, Rancho players will cherish their turn playing in the game
Don’t judge the Rancho High football team by its record or how badly it has performed in games the past few seasons. Don’t judge the Rams on the size or inexperience of their players. Don’t judge them by an ugly 17-season losing streak to Las Vegas High in the annual “Bone Game,” that rivalry that was at its peak back in the day when the teams were evenly matched but is still a source of pride for alumni. This year's game is 7 p.m. Friday at Rancho.

Las Vegas High hopeful it can return as one of the area's elite teams
Friday, September 6, 2013
high school football:
It’s been seven years since the Las Vegas High football team last hoisted the state championship trophy and three years since the Wildcats won the Sunrise Region title. Las Vegas coach James Thurman has a few ideas on why they have taken a step back to other teams in the area. Whether it was open enrollment strengthening programs at other schools in the Sunrise or Las Vegas having to play young players in key spots, the Wildcats haven’t been the dominating program as past seasons.
