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.

“After that, I just felt like they came together and treated it as a challenge,” Basic coach Jeff Cahill said. “We really shut their offense down and they hardly gained any more yards.”
Basic throttled Coronado the rest of the way and escaped with a 35-14 win in front of its home crowd.
The defensive front seven turned things around by keeping Coronado’s offense out of whack all night. Pressure led to two interceptions, including one by DeVonte Boyd.
“He’s really an all-around player for us,” Cahill said. “He’s done everything we’ve asked.”
