high school football: Basic, Green Valley continue one of Nevada's most significant rivalries at 7 p.m. Friday at Basic
Imagine winning one of the most significant games of your life and having to wait to celebrate. That’s the etiquette in the Henderson Bowl football rivalry game between Basic and Green Valley high schools. The two sides always shake hands at midfield following the game before players on the winning team race to the end zone to grab the trophy.

high school football:
Most lower-seeded teams in the Southern Nevada high school football playoffs don’t win this easy. Then again, the No. 4 seed from the competitive Southeast League, as proven last fall by the Basic High team, isn’t a borderline playoff-qualifier.

hs football: Basic's Devonte Boyd and Antraye Johnson, nine from power Bishop Gorman highlight the Sun's 29-player team
A football player from Basic High School typically isn’t mentioned when talking about a can’t-miss college prospect in Southern Nevada.

Basic lineman J’Ondray Sanders has unlimited potential, set to sign with UNLV football
Wednesday, February 1, 2012
REBELS FOOTBALL: The 6-foot-4, 260-pound Sanders is expected to be the lone local to sign with hometown school, fits into Hauck's desires of having big and athletic linemen
When J’Ondray Sanders begins his morning workout session in the Basic High School weight lifting room, the senior can’t help but noticing other students in the weight training class staring in his direction. Sanders, you see, is the big man on campus — and not because of his 6-foot-4, 260-pound frame. Ever since Sanders verbally committed in early January to the UNLV football program, the offensive lineman’s popularity has spiked in the first period class of mostly football players. Sanders on Wednesday will sign a national letter of intent with UNLV, becoming the first Basic player in more than 15 ...

There is no doubt Kyle Keplinger is the Foothill High football team’s top offensive threat. The senior wide receiver entered Thursday’s Sunrise Regional semifinal game against visiting Basic with 21 touchdowns, easily having his way with the opposition every week. So, what happens when Keplinger is held in check? Well, he still has an impact on the game.

high school football: A victory by Bishop Gorman and Palo Verde will set-up the highly-anticipated annual showdown between the perennial powers
Las Vegas High football coach James Thurman has stressed each week for his players to play a faceless opponent on Friday nights. Instead of worrying about the opposition — whether weak or strong — on the other side of the field, Thurman tells his players the first step to victory is executing their game plan successfully. On most Fridays in Las Vegas’ weak Northeast Division, the faceless opponent strategy is not overlooking a struggling opponent. But Thursday in the Sunset Regional semifinals, the Wildcats will face a tall order in beating host Liberty (9-1). Not only did the defending Sunrise ...
