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.

Foothill made a statement Friday night.

In what figured to be one of the more competitive games of the weekend, Foothill embarrassed Bonanza in a 48-14 victory.

“I thought we played really well,” Foothill coach Marty Redmond said. “We gave up two big plays on defense, but we were just bigger and stronger than them up front.”

The Falcons pretty much dictated whatever they wanted to do offensively.

Senior running back Connor Afoa had 135 yards. Senior quarterback Parker Riggin threw for nearly 150 yards. Junior Kyle Keplinger had 124 yards. The defense also added two scores.

“We scored on our opening drive and took it from there,” Redmond said.

Bonanza also scored on its first play from scrimmage. DaSean Martin found an opening for a 60-yard touchdown.

Martin was able to add another touchdown before the end of the night, but overall Foothill contained the Bonanza offense to minimal damage.
