Back from Arizona, a heartbroken Ray Brewer recounts the costly mistakes that made Nevada teams go 0-2 in this year's Sollenberger Classic. Fellow Las Vegas Sun sports reporter Case Keefer helps him cope by looking at this week's national showdown between Bishop Gorman and Maryland's Our Lady Of Good Counsel. The two also babble semi-coherently on the rest of the week's games and high school football players' favorite rappers. Don't forget to subscribe to Prep Sports Now on Itunes.

  1. Hope Gorman beats Good Counsel but dont think they will. Hope for a hot night to help us..With our weather, the end of the 3Q will be the time to make a move. Best song to listen to before a game( for this generation in high school) is Nelley "The Champ" The song is about being a team.

  2. Thanks for the encouraging words about my son, He has been in beast mode ALL OFF-SEASON!!!

  3. Ray, before you automatically punch Cheyenne and Desert Pine's ticket to State, a couple of other teams just might have something to say about that...
    As you have mentioned previously, it's difficult to travel to Moapa Valley and win on their turf, and it's difficult to travel up North in November...
    You both were just talking about altitude in Colorado... so guess what, Truckee sits at 6,050 feet...
    Welcome to Truckee in November...
    Unlucky for Fallon last year, they had to come to Truckee, and Lowry went to Moapa Valley, where the Buckaroos lost to the Pirates.
    Had Fallon had to travel to Moapa Valley, the result "may" have been different, and it could have possibly been an All North Final...
    Truckee still has to go to Fallon this year, and win on their field...
    Some "experts" are picking Fallon to knock off Truckee in Fallon this season, as they played the Wolverines tough, twice last season.
    Come Week 8, the #2 Seed from the South should probably be rooting for Fallon to knock off Truckee in the regular season, so they don't have to travel to "Altitude" come November...
    Truckee has not lost a home playoff game since 2007...

  4. Blueandgold,
    You may notice that my comments on the Week 1 Picks states that the Div. I-A State Championship STILL has to go through Moapa Valley and Truckee, since those two teams are the only ones that have won it the last FIVE years, and the Pirates have been in it SIX years in a row...
    Immediately dismissing the Pirates and Wolverines, and automatically calling the Cheyenne at Desert Pine game on Thursday night a preview of the State Championship game is off base, in my opinion.

  5. tuasdad,
    Yes, I do play by play for the Wolverines, on:
    101.5 FM, and streaming LIVE on www.truckeetahoeradio.com

    The Wolverines open at home on Sept. 1, against Lowry, last year's semi-finalist that lost at Moapa Valley, sending the Pirates to the Championship game.

    I have also filmed for Truckee Football for several years, before moving into the broadcast booth.
    If Truckee is playing at home on a Saturday afternoon , (we do not have lights), you will usually find me at another game on Friday night, filming...
    Let the games begin...
