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.

The Centennial High football team enjoyed its best offensive game of the season Friday with a 65-22 victory against host Desert Oasis.

It was a rematch of the last two Sunset Regional quarterfinals, where Centennial prevailed late against Desert Oasis in a closely contested game.

“Tonight wasn’t one of those game,” Centennial coach Leon Evans said.

Lantz Worthington carried the ball nine times for 103 yards and a touchdown for Centennial, which also received 11 carries for 78 yards and a touchdown from Coby Newton. Andrew Romoff added 79 yards rushing and a score.

Brandt Honda had an interception return for a touchdown and a punt return of 60 yards for another score for Centennial (5-1, 2-0 Southwest).

“Our defense and special teams put us in a good position to have success,” Centennial coach Leon Evans said.
