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.

Centennial High’s Willie White had four touchdowns and 139 yards rushing on seven carries Friday night to lift the Bulldogs to a 48-13 victory against visiting Clark.

Taj Cole added 87 yards rushing and a touchdown for Centennial, which was victorious in coach Leon Evans’ debut with the program.

“It gives the kids some confidence,” Evans said of the convincing win. “Going into it, some kids questioned if we could get it done here. This answers that.”

While Clark isn’t near the caliber of competition Centennial will face in the Northwest Division, it was still a step in the right direction.

Now, they have to work on duplicating the effort the rest of the season.

“We are going to take it one week at a time,” Evans said. “We are going to try and get better for next week.”

For Clark, Chris Jackson and Derrick Jackson each had short touchdowns runs.

“We have to play more physical up front and tackle better,” Clark coach Don Willis said.
