The tough Southeast Division

Las Vegas Sun reporters Case Keefer and Ray Brewer break down high school football's tough Southeast Division. Five of the league's seven teams are part of the Sun's top-10 rankings.

Palo Verde High’s Brandon Wright rushed for 164 yards and three touchdowns Saturday in a 56-12 win against visiting Mojave. It was the Northwest Division opener for both schools, as well as Mojave's season opener.

“It was a tough game for Mojave because it was our third game and their first,” Palo Verde coach Darwin Rost said.

Palo Verde (3-0) played its reserves in the second half. Wright, who has scholarship offers from the likes of Cal and Colorado, was pulled midway through the second quarter.

Jonathan Maxwell added a 25-yard scoring run for Palo Verde and Arie McQuaig scored from 27 yards out.
