Are Centennial, Canyon Springs in the elite?

There are topics aplenty on this week's episode after an eventful slate of games. Centennial and Canyon Springs, most notably, presented arguments for being included with the best teams in town. Are Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer buying the Bulldogs and Pioneers? Listen in on the debate, a discussion on touchdown celebrations and a breakdown of this week's games.

Chaparral High scored all five of its touchdowns on the ground at Western High and bumped its record to 2-1, equaling its combined victories over the last three years with a 34-6 win.

Senior running back Antonio Thomas led the way with 200 yards and two touchdowns, but he didn’t have to carry the load all game. Senior Tyquan Anderson also had two scores and 130 yards while senior quarterback Jason Johnson chipped in 70 yards and a touchdown.

“We’re not a one-horse team,” Chaparral coach William Froman said.

Western caught Chaparral napping to start the second half with an onside kick, which led to its only score of the game.

“They had us on our heels for a minute,” Froman said. “We needed some stops and we can occasionally get them now. We couldn’t last year.”

Froman said he started five sophomores and a freshman on defense, which is a dangerous proposition for long-term results this year, but it sets up nicely for the future.

Chaparral hosts Eldorado High next week while Western stays home against Moapa Valley.
