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".
Green Valley had two goals going into its game against Valley Friday night, one obvious objective and one not quite as obvious.
The Gators wanted to win their Northeast Division opener and work on their running attack in the process. Mark both down as successes.
The victory was never in doubt as Green Valley rolled to a 47-13 victory behind the rushing of Albert Lake and Larry Norman, who combined for three touchdowns on the ground with the former scoring two of them.
“We want to get better running the ball as the season goes on,” Green Valley coach Brian Castro said. “I think it went pretty well tonight.”
They did it without abandoning their pass game, as Christian Lopez went 10-for-15 for nearly 200 yards and two touchdowns. Sophomore Austin Warhop also had a touchdown in what amounted to a primer for Green Valley ahead of next week’s showdown with division rival Las Vegas High.
“It was a pretty bland game tonight, but we’re happy to get the win,” Castro said. “Next week will be a big football game. Vegas has its tradition and are real well-coached with some athletes. We’ll need to bring our A-game.”
