The tough Southeast Division

Las Vegas Sun reporters Case Keefer and Ray Brewer break down high school football's tough Southeast Division. Five of the league's seven teams are part of the Sun's top-10 rankings.

Silverado High’s Izaiah Thurmon and Steven Scamorza each rushed for more than 100 yards and two touchdowns Saturday morning in a 61-14 victory against visiting Eldorado.

The Skyhawks (2-0) led 35-7 at halftime and played its reserves for most of the second half. They closed the game with 26 unanswered points.

The win was a tune-up for Silverado’s Southeast Division opener Thursday against neighborhood rival Liberty. Quarterback Savon Moniz also passed for more than 100 yards in the first half to give Silverado a balanced attack.

“We spread the ball around to a bunch of different people,” Silverado coach Andy Ostoloza said. “That’s the big thing we are going to need the next couple of weeks.”

Silverado also scored on an interception, kickoff and punt return for touchdowns — Scamorza with a 90-yard kickoff return, Dominic Molina with a 40-yard punt return and Alec Acevedo with a 35-yard interception return.
