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

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.
