Football: Cimarron-Memorial High grad Brandon Marshall will play special teams for Denver Broncos, some four months after being cut by Jacksonville
Tuesday, January 21, 2014
Brandon Marshall wasn’t good enough for an invitation to this football recruiting camp. During the summer before his senior year at Cimarron-Memorial High, Marshall wasn’t deemed a high enough college prospect to earn a spot at the Nike camp in Los Angeles. Mike Waters, his trainer, had to make a few calls to get Marshall, an undersized running back and linebacker, included. “He’s always felt like he was the underdog,” Waters said.

Nick Grove can’t help feeling humbled by the support his high school baseball team received last week. My story on the Sunrise Mountain High School program having most of its gear stolen from an on-campus storage unit was posted for just a few hours last week on the Sun’s website when supporters starting reaching out to the school offering to help.

Tuesday, January 14, 2014
When the University of Oregon football program shows recruiting interest, you listen. That’s exactly what Palo Verde High senior nose guard and defensive tackle Michael Hughes Jr. is doing, holding off on giving a verbal commitment to UNLV, Northern Arizona or UTEP because he’s on the radar of the nationally respected Pac-12 school.

After gear is stolen, this high school baseball team's season is in jeopardy

Friday, January 10, 2014
It was a scene played out on baseball sandlots decades ago. Just not in high school baseball in 2014. When one team was done playing in the field, it would leave catcher’s equipment and gloves for the other team to use during its turn on defense. And players on opposing teams used the same bat. That’s the philosophy first-year Sunrise Mountain High coach Nick Grove plans to use this spring. It’s not by choice.

Wednesday, January 8, 2014
The Las Vegas High basketball team started no seniors Tuesday in its Northeast League opener at Green Valley. But their underclassmen weren’t intimidated, continuing to progress ahead of schedule in a 74-59 victory. With three college-recruits in the junior class leading the charge, including four-star prospect Ray Smith on the wing, the Wildcats were hoping to gain enough experience in the regular season to peak during the playoffs. If not, they would be one of the favorites next season.

Saturday, January 4, 2014
When Nate Starks left Las Vegas last summer before his senior year at Bishop Gorman High, the running back likely thought he’d never play again for Gaels’ coach Tony Sanchez. But two were reunited this week at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio — Sanchez coaching the West in the NBC-televised national high school all-star game and Starks as one of the team’s running backs.

Friday, January 3, 2014
Bishop Gorman High’s Randall Cunningham II has been asked the question numerous times over the years: Are you going to play football or track in college? Cunningham, the son of NFL great Randall Cunningham, finally has an answer. Well, sort of.

Legacy's Casey Hughes feels at home with Utah football, verbally commits
high school football:
Saturday, December 21, 2013
When Legacy High’s Casey Hughes contemplated which college football program to attend, he just couldn’t pass on the University of Utah. And while the defensive back and kick returner’s comfort with the coaching staff and where he envisions himself fitting in on the team were key factors, it wasn’t the most important reason. He verbally committed today.

Clark basketball gains confidence after keeping game close with Mater Dei
high school basketball:
Friday, December 20, 2013
The Clark High basketball team didn’t back down. Even when the Chargers appeared to be overmatched Thursday against No. 3 ranked Mater Dei of Southern California in the Tarkanian Classic at Bishop Gorman, the Las Vegas power didn’t quit fighting. While a 72-58 loss will be recorded as a double-digit defeat, it will serve as much more for a team expected to contend for the Nevada state championship in a few months.

Thursday, December 19, 2013
As UNLV offensive lineman Ron Scoggins Jr. left practice Tuesday, a familiar face greeted him: his father. Ron Scoggins Sr. was part of UNLV’s 1984 California Bowl championship team, so father and son will enter the program’s record book when the Rebels play in the Heart of Dallas Bowl.
