Lifting weights, talking trash and introducing yourself

Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer dish on all things Las Vegas high school football again this week. Among the debates, other than the usual picks segment, are whether it's acceptable for an NFL player to introduce his high school alma mater instead of his college.

Ryan Smith returned the opening kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown Friday to lead the Bishop Gorman High football team past host Cimarron-Memorial, 54-0.

“Our kids played really well,” Gorman coach Tony Sanchez said. “The opening kickoff shocked (Cimarron) a little and ignited a spark with our guys.”

Smith added a receiving touchdown from Anu Solomon, who also threw a scoring strike to Robert Stanley.

Nate Starks added a pair of rushing touchdowns for the Gaels (5-1, 2-0 Southwest) and Justin Sweet scored on his lone rushing attempt.

Defensively, Dalton Baker had an interception return of about 35 yards for a touchdown. Gorman led 51-0 at halftime to force a running clock for the second half, where Kline Fielden scored the Gaels’ lone points on a field goal.
