high school sports: Coronado and Spring Valley will play in Idaho, Liberty has three games against out-of-state teams; each want to represent Nevada
This will be a chance for Las Vegas area high school football teams to make a statement. During a three-week stretch at the end of August and into early September, nine area programs will open the season against out-of-state competition in games coaches say carry much significance. In addition to getting the players ready for the challenges of league play, they are more than aware of the obvious: The local brand of football is gaining respect nationally each year, meaning teams will be playing for more than the school name on the front of their jersey. They’ll also be representing ...

Former 49ers kicker Mike Cofer now calls Henderson home, will be rooting for old team in Super Bowl
Thursday, January 31, 2013
Community: Cofer, who won a pair of Super Bowls with San Francisco, is the wide receiver coach at Coronado High
There’s no questioning what team Henderson resident Mike Cofer is rooting for on Super Bowl Sunday. He’s a San Francisco 49ers fan through and through. It’s only natural considering Cofer played six of his eight NFL seasons with the 49ers, which included back-to-back Super Bowl titles in the 1988 and 1989 seasons.

high school football: Blowout victory against Coronado gives Liberty its first appearance in the state title game, where they'll face three-time defending state champion Gorman
Kai Nacua could have easily been rattled. The Liberty High quarterback fumbled on the first play of Saturday’s Sunrise Regional championship game against visiting Coronado, committing a turnover that was scooped up by a Coronado defender and returned for a 13-yard touchdown. Just eight seconds into the game and the two-time defending region champion Patriots trailed by a touchdown. But, with Nacua guiding the offense, the deficit lasted just a few minutes. Nacua backed up claims that he’s one of the state’s best players, accounting for seven touchdowns and single-handedly taking the game over in a 59-20 Liberty win.

high school football: Liberty has lost the past two years in the state semifinals, will face rival Coronado at 1 p.m. Saturday with a berth in title game at stake
When Rich Muraco took over as the Liberty High football coach in 2009, the Patriots had never made the playoffs and had won just 14 games in the school’s previous six years of existence. Some four years later, they will play for their third straight Sunrise Regional championship at 1 p.m. Saturday against visiting Coronado. The goal was simple during Muraco’s first season: Make the playoffs.

high school football: First-year coach Brad Talich getting the most out of team that hadn't been to playoffs since 2005
The Coronado High football team won two league games the past three seasons. However, that was an old era of Cougars football, before first-year coach Brad Talich took over the program. With Talich leading the way, Coronado is having its best season since the school opened in 2001. That season is going to last at least one more week. Coronado’s Derrick Keller had a pair of touchdown runs Friday night against host Green Valley in the Sunrise Regional semifinals, and the Cougars defense was stingy for most of the night in a 29-14 victory.
