Friday Night Roundup:

First week of high school football games in the books

Updated Saturday, Aug. 28, 2010 | 12:39 a.m.

The last Friday in August in Southern Nevada typically means one thing — the start of the high school football.

More than 20 local schools kicked off their season tonight, highlighted by Basic hosting Boulder City High in the annual “Jug Game.” The contest pitting the neighboring communities isn’t as heated as its heyday in the 1950s and 60s, but the players still consider the rivalry game the perfect start to a new year.

Del Sol, the state runner-up last year in the large-school classification, opens its season against visiting Durangoand the Trailblazers’ Julio Mora, one of the area’s most electric players.

Other games of note include defending Northwest Division champion Legacy of North Las Vegas traveling to Spring Valley in a rematch of last year’s Sunset Regional quarterfinal — a win for Legacy. Legacy graduated virtually everyone from last year, but returns junior running back LJ McMorris, who potentially could lead the area in rushing when it is all said and done.
