high school football: These teams struggled in 2012 but could have a turnaround this fall
The Silverado High football program typically isn’t mentioned as one of the teams to beat in the Sunrise Region. That honor goes to three-time defending Sunrise champion Liberty, or Northeast League favorite Green Valley. But Silverado could have the players to make some noise this fall. When practices across Southern Nevada officially started this week, Silverado’s field was packed with some new faces, including a handful of linemen who could be difference-makers. Silverado isn’t the only underachieving team from last season capable of a turnaround in 2013.

Desert Pines peaking at the right time, tops Chaparral to secure playoff berth
Saturday, October 13, 2012
high school football:
Walking up and down the Desert Pines High football team’s sideline Friday night during their 48-28 victory against Chaparral, it was obvious the Jaguars players had a different attitude. The Jaguars, after struggling to start the season, are a confident a bunch. And that makes them one of Division-IA’s most dangerous teams.

Friday, October 5, 2012
high school football:
Malik Davis can sometimes get lost behind the considerable shadows of Eric Wilkes and Iquan Corsey in the Desert Pines backfield. Not on Friday.

Desert Pines looking to make major strides in new Division 1-A Sunrise
Thursday, August 23, 2012
If the flavor of Desert Pines’ offense in recent years was vanilla, it’s transforming into Neapolitan this season. The Jaguars will continue to use their run-between-the-tackles mentality, but some new wrinkles may accompany the standard fare to diversify the attack.
