The Bishop Gorman High football team will be in the national spotlight Saturday when they travel to Northern California to face nationally respected De La Salle. The game will be televised by CBS College Sports, giving the Gaels a chance to make a splash — for themselves and the Las Vegas area.

For Virgin Valley, it’s always a special feeling to come into Las Vegas to face off with a 4A school and leave with a victory.

It happened for the first time this season Friday night when the Bulldogs traveled to Mojave and easily disposed of the Rattlers, 33-0.

“It’s great to be able to play a school three times the size of ours and compete the way we did,” Virgin Valley coach Kirk Hafen said.

Senior Kyler Hughes led the way for Virgin Valley on both sides of the ball. Hafen said Hughes scored a touchdown and had an interception.

Hughes effectively contributed to the problem that was the Mojave quarterback situation. The Rattlers played three different quarterbacks hoping to move the ball against the Bulldogs. They all failed.

The 3A Virgin Valley (4-1) continued its impressive start to the season, while Mojave (0-3) is still looking for its first win.
