Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer open this week's show by discussing the top-ranked high school football team in the nation, Florida's Booker T. Washington, coming to town Friday to take on Bishop Gorman. They then work their way into other pertinent topics, highlighted by a discussion of the definition of "athlete" and whether Green Valley can match Canyon Springs' "quickness".
Desert Pines sprinted out to a 50-6 halftime lead and coach Tico Rodriguez was able to go deeper on his bench for the rest of the game.
“It’s extremely important for team morale to get all the kids involved and playing,” Rodriguez said.
Running back Eric Wilkes once again did most of the damage for Desert Pines, compiling four touchdowns and 213 yards on only 12 carries. Quarterback Iquan Corsey threw for two touchdowns and ran for a couple more.
Next week is a showdown of undefeated teams as Desert Pines (6-0, 2-0) travels to Virgin Valley (6-0, 2-0), which defeated Boulder City 34-3 on Friday night. It’s a huge game in the Division I-A Sunrise Region and could serve as the de facto championship game.
“We’re excited to play a quality team like Virgin Valley,” Rodriguez said.
