Faith Lutheran football celebrates championship again, gets rings
Thursday, February 6, 2014
high school football:
What a difference a year makes. Last February, Vernon Fox took the stage in the Faith Lutheran auditorium and spoke to players for the first time as their football coach. He told them they would win — immediately. One year later, they returned to the same auditorium for another meeting with their coach. Like he predicted, they were winners.

national signing day:
The library at Canyon Springs High in North Las Vegas was so packed with supporters on national signing day, officials had to bring in more chairs to accommodate the crowd. The ceremony, during which seven football players signed their letter of intent to different levels of college football, quickly became emotional. Coach Hunkie Cooper delivered a powerful speech that left most in tears.

More than 50 college coaches recruited at Gorman football — in one month
Wednesday, February 5, 2014
national signing day:
Bishop Gorman High football coach Tony Sanchez showed two coaches from Weber State game film last week on the mounted television in his office, giving them information on a player he hopes they offer a scholarship.

unlv football: Desert Pines High defensive back could become next Rebels to go from under-the-radar to key contributor
Tim Hough didn’t play for a powerhouse high school football program. In fact, his Desert Pines High team competes in one of Nevada’s lower classifications. The wide receiver and defensive back wasn’t a highly sought after college recruit — UNLV was his only scholarship offer. Hough is one of about 15 players expected to sign with the Rebels Wednesday during national signing day, and his commitment falls perfectly in line with coach Bobby’s Hauck recruiting philosophy.

Football: Cimarron-Memorial High grad Brandon Marshall will play special teams for Denver Broncos, some four months after being cut by Jacksonville
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.

When the University of Oregon football program shows recruiting interest, you listen.

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.
