Where's the defense?

Upset over the outlandish scores posted around the valley last week, Las Vegas Sun sports reporter Ray Brewer loses his sanity on this week's podcast. Co-host Case Keefer tries to stay out of the way during his rant on defense, but has plenty to add on other topics — including impressive games from Arbor View and Bishop Gorman, "the hut drill" and the two highly-anticipated games in Henderson on Friday.

Grab a wide receiver, toss him into a few quarterback drills and tell him he’ll need to learn how to run the spread offense in the next three days.

Doesn’t sound like a winning formula, right? Well, it worked for Valley. Junior Tyrone Prewitt began practicing as a quarterback Tuesday and got his first win Friday, leading the Vikings to a 36-13 victory over Eldorado.

“We finally said, ‘Let’s just go with him,’” Valley coach Marcus Sherman said. “He’s savvy and smooth. He gives us a run-pass option and a way we can move the offense.”

Prewitt was Valley’s third starter in four games at quarterback and by far the most successful. He threw for two touchdown passes in the first half and nearly 200 total yards, which opened up the running lanes for Kennedy Williams.

Williams and Prewitt each rushed for close to 100 yards and made sure Eldorado wasted another big game from Justin Brown.

“We just got it going in all phases,” Sherman said. “We were finally able to move the ball consistently.”
