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".

Tickets for the Bishop Gorman High football team’s Friday game against No. 1 ranked Booker T. Washington of Miami are being presold this week.

The standing-room capacity at Gorman’s Fertitta Field is 5,000, which could be reached for this game.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students at the school’s athletic office, which is open from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Military members, seniors and children under 5 are free.

This is the last of six games against respected national opponents for Gorman (4-1) to open the season.

Washington has given up just 30 points in five games, while scoring more than 200 and has a lineup of blue-chip Division I recruits, including three four-star prospects. Quarterback Treon Harris is committed to Florida State; defensive lineman Chad Thomas and Nigel Bethel are each committed to Miami.
