Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer dish on all things Las Vegas high school football again this week. Among the debates, other than the usual picks segment, are whether it's acceptable for an NFL player to introduce his high school alma mater instead of his college.

Clark played much of the first half of the season with one of its best players, Kareem Warren, out with an injury.

The Chargers reaped the benefits of having Warren back in action Friday night. Clark beat Western 27-13 to notch its first victory of the season behind a rushing touchdown and more than 100 rushing yards from Warren.

“I feel like he started getting his groove back again tonight,” Clark coach Don Willis said.

Warren also recorded an interception on defense. Clark trailed winless Western 13-12 at halftime, but Warren and the rest of the defense bared down in the second half.

The offense also didn’t turn the ball over in the final 24 minutes in contrast to the first half when they lost three fumbles. As impressive as Warren played in the game, fellow running back Donte Bowen was even better.

Bowen ran for two touchdowns and nearly 150 yards.

“We struggled in the first half but we started taking care of the ball more than anything,” Willis said. “We came back strong.”
