Debating the valley's best kicker

Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer engage in a wide-ranging high school football conversation. In addition to their usual recap and upcoming picks, they discuss the area's best kickers.

The only thing Canyon Springs coach Hunkie Cooper asks for out of his team is to get better each week.

He thinks the Pioneers have done that, as they improved 2-2 on the year with a 56-6 victory over Chaparral on Friday night.

“I know what to expect out of my kids,” Cooper said. “They played well. They didn’t give up too much and did some good things.”

A slew of different players scored touchdowns for Canyon Springs. Nigel Perry, A.J. Cooper, Rayshawn Henderson and Brandon Edmond all found the end zone.

That’s because Cooper decided to give D.J. Pumphrey some rest after he eclipsed the 100-yard rushing mark and had two touchdowns in the first half.

“He could have had 300 yards tonight,” Cooper said. “But I wanted to get some young kids in there.”

Cooper said he was also impressed with his offensive line play and the continued development of quarterback Kevion Glenn.

Glenn racked up yards through the air and on his feet. Most important to Cooper, however, was that Glenn didn’t turn the ball over.
