Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer compare the run Moapa Valley is on in the Division 1-A to the one Bishop Gorman has put together this season in the upper decision. Other familiar arguments arise, including a debate on whether Arbor View should be considered as the second-best team in the state. Give us your thoughts in the comments.
Coronado will be well rested and ready when takes the field again next week. On Friday night at Eldorado, Coronado led 28-0 at halftime of an eventual 35-7 victory and coach Brad Talich sat his starters for the second half. That gave his reserves a much-deserved chance to get some playing time while also letting the starters rest up as they prepare to host Foothill this week.
“I knew if we had a lead I wanted to rest the kids,” Talich said.
Talich is friends with Foothill coach Marty Redmond and said he’s excited to stare down his golfing buddy from the opposite sideline. And in his first season at the school it means a lot for Talich’s chances of getting Coronado (4-2) to the playoffs for the first time since 2006.
Coronado played Liberty very close last week and it’s clear that, if nothing else, Talich has got the program headed in the right direction.
“We listened to what the kids were feeling and what they expected from the program,” Talich said. “… It’s not anything I’ve done. It’s been a joint effort by a lot of people and the kids are really enjoying it.”
