Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer are back to talk about high school football leading into this week. They discuss the recent problems with special teams and break down their weekly picks.

The Clark High football team exploded for 33 points in the second half Friday against visiting Pahrump Valley to erase a seven-point halftime deficit and win 40-26.

Clark (3-4 Southwest) is making a habit of winning games in the second half. Two weeks ago against Sierra Vista, the Chargers trailed by 20 points before closing the game with 24 unanswered points.

Marquise McKinney and Deyon McKinney each had two touchdowns for the Chargers, while Raydel Perez had an interception return for a score.

In the first half, the Chargers fumbled the ball five times. And even though they didn’t lose the fumbles, it stalled their offense.

“We had to get our defense off the field and just hang onto the ball,” Clark coach Don Willis said. “We really couldn’t make any adjustments (at halftime) on offense, because we didn’t have the ball long enough in the first half to see what worked.”
