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.
Bishop Gorman successfully routed another opponent Friday night.
Behind a smothering defensive performance, Gorman beat Spring Valley 55-0.
“The best thing I can say is they’ve been a very mature team all year,” Gorman coach Tony Sanchez said. “They haven’t played down once.”
Perhaps that’s a credit to some of the Gaels leaders, who were as impressive as ever against the Grizzlies.
“He’s such a fantastic football player,” Sanchez said of Solomon. “He’s done big things all year. It’s unfortunate that he hasn’t gotten to play past the first half much.”
Solomon might have a previously unexpected chance to play an entire game next week. Gorman is now scheduled to take on Arbor View, one of Las Vegas’ best teams, after Western forfeited the rest of its season Friday. Western officials announced they were canceling the last three games of the season after multiple players were suspended in connection with an on-campus hazing incident.
Gorman was proactive when it heard about the cancellation of the Western game and able to schedule Arbor View, which was supposed to be on a bye.
“It’s a great test for us,” Sanchez said.
