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".

Jocquez Kalili rushed for four touchdowns today for the Desert Oasis High football team in a 49-12 victory against visiting Sierra Vista.

While Desert Oasis won by more than 30 points, the game was close into the second quarter until Kalili broke free for a 65-yard touchdown run. The run helped shift the momentum to the Diamondbacks, which trailed 6-0 early and had problems attacking the Sierra Vista defense.

“It just took us awhile to get going,” Desert Oasis coach Scott Staudinger said.

“They did some good things defensively against us. That touchdown run got us relaxed and settled us down.”

Richie Stammetti passed for a pair of touchdowns for Desert Oasis (3-1), hooking up with Shawn Sanchez and Joey Poehling. Justin Larsen added a rushing touchdown for the Diamondbacks.
