Palo vs. Liberty and Gorman's national test headline busy week

Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer bring all the ranting and raving any Southern Nevada high school football fan could ever want on the fourth episode of this year's podcast. Brewer further fuels his detractors at Centennial and predicts a lopsided victory in favor of Bishop Gorman. Does Keefer agree? Listen to find out.

The Coronado High football team is arguably the most improved squad in the Las Vegas Valley.

The Cougars, which haven’t reached the playoffs since 2005, won in convincing fashion Friday for the second straight week in a 68-0 victory against host Valley.

Coronado coach Brad Talich, however, isn't quite ready to hold a victory parade. While Coronado has been dominant in its first two games, he knows there is plenty to work on.

“There is still a lot of things were need to get better on,” Talich said. “I don’t know about (being the most improved) team. I’m really only concerned about our team.”

Coronado, which averaged nine points per game last year in Southeast League games, has already scored 100 points. Against Valley, the Cougars led 42-0 at halftime in allowing Talich to give some of his younger players significant player time.

“It was nice to give those younger players a look and see what they are capable of doing. That was good for us,” Talich said.

Trevor Spina, who is primarily a defensive back, had three touchdown runs to lead Coronado. In addition to recording the shutout, the Coronado defense limited Valley to about 50 yards.
