Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer are back to talk about high school football leading into this week. They discuss the recent problems with special teams and break down their weekly picks.
Las Vegas (7-0 overall, 5-0 Northeast) only played its starters for the first half, with running back Farrell Victor carrying the ball eight times for 108 yards and three touchdowns.
Las Vegas, which is one of two undefeated teams in the Las Vegas Valley, has one of the biggest games of its season next week when it hosts Rancho in the annual “Bone Game.” Widely considered Nevada’s most storied rivalry, Las Vegas has won the game a record 15 straight years.
If they continue to play like they did against Sunrise Mountain, the streak will continue.
“We played well. We did what we were supposed to do,” Las Vegas coach James Thurman said. “We executed. We did a good job and blocking and tackling.”
Third-year Sunrise Mountain is still looking for its first varsity win.
