Previewing the new football season

Las Vegas Sun reporters Case Keefer and Ray Brewer discuss the upcoming high school football season. They will let you know whether or not anyone can dethrone defending state champion Bishop Gorman, release their state title sleepers teams and give a quick breakdown of the area's 30-plus schools.

Judging by the final score of 42-7, it’s hard to imagine Arbor View was ever in trouble against Rancho on Friday night.

But Arbor View coach Dan Barnson said the Aggies were in a war early with the Rams before pulling away with the lopsided win. Rancho scored early in the first quarter to tie the score at 7.

“They rammed it right down our throat and played really well,” Barnson said.

After that score, Arbor View turned up its intensity.

“You want the kids in close games to see how they battle and how they react,” Barnson said. “Rancho came out hitting. They are a good team, but we responded.”

The Aggies piled up more than 300 yards rushing behind a strong performance from Jordan Godman. Arbor View was equally effective attacking through the air.

Junior quarterback Justin Nehls had two touchdown passes. Roderick Eason and Steve Burns each recorded a touchdown catch.

“We still have a long way to go to get to where we want to be,” Barnson said.
