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.

The Bishop Gorman High football team started Southwest Division play Saturday with a 48-0 victory against host Clark.

Gorman, the defending state champions, scored on the first play of the game when Washington-commit Evan Zeger returned the opening kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown.

Zeger also caught an 80-yard touchdown pass on Gorman’s first play from scrimmage, junior running back Shaquille Powell had 90 yards and a touchdown on three carries and quarterback Anu Solomon passed for two scores.

Gorman, which is ranked No. 21 nationally by USA Today, hasn’t lost a league game since 2006, when it was beaten by Spring Valley.

The Gaels (2-1) led 41-0 at halftime and played its reserves the rest of the game.

They opened the season with a pair of contests against nationally-respected opponents from out of state. They had a bye last week, which coach Tony Sanchez said was partially spent working on tackling.

Despite blanking Clark, the coach said, tackling was still an issue.

“The tackling still wasn’t that good,” Sanchez said. “We have to clean that up a little.”
