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.
Doxtator had yet another big night for the Falcons on Friday in a 28-13 homecoming victory over the Silverado Skyhawks. Doxtator threw for all four touchdowns.
“He’s done a good job,” Foothill coach Marty Redmond said. “He’s doing well, but we’ve got a lot of guys who can make something happen with the ball in their hands and a lot of guy who block well. I think that’s helped him.”
The Falcons remained poised after falling behind 7-0 to the Skyhawks when they scored on their first possession. Foothill responded with 20 unanswered points. A second-half Silverado touchdown on a reverse play to Deandre Gause wasn’t enough of a spark to rally the Skyhawks back into the game.
Foothill now stands at 6-1 with a significant game against rival Basic on deck.
“They are always excited and come out and play us really tough,” Redmond said. “That game is always a dogfight. They’ve got some great wide receivers this year, so we’ve got to come ready.”
