high school football:
Replacing a three-year starter at quarterback is a challenge any high school program struggles with. But, at Eldorado, coach Vernon Brown is taking a pro-active approach. Yes, JaQuorrey Williams was their best player last year. However, he wasn’t their entire team — a message Brown has been stressing to his players during the off-season.

prep recruiting: St. Louis running back shined at Oregon State, helping make Las Vegas a must-stop on the recruiting trail
During a ceremony Friday at the Orleans Arena to induct Steven Jackson into the Southern Nevada Sports Hall of Fame, the St. Louis Rams running back was praised for his many successes on the gridiron. For Las Vegas area high school football players, Jackson’s most significant accomplishment was simply excelling at the next level. Before Jackson burst onto the scene at Oregon State, Southern Nevada was lightly recruited and several players with college-level talent went under-recruited. But after Jackson shined with the Beavers, college coaches made sure Las Vegas was included on the recruiting trail.

Southern Nevada Sports Hall of Fame will also induct 1944 Las Vegas High team this June
The achievements of this high school football team seem almost unreal. The Las Vegas High 1944 state championship squad surrendered no points — not a touchdown, field goal or safety — and didn’t allow an opponent to record consecutive first downs, going undefeated in eight games. Offensively, they never threw a forward pass — a rarity, even then.

prep football: Eldorado's trip to Chaparral one of three rivlary games on tap of significance
Eldorado High football coach Vernon Brown doesn’t hesitate endorsing his quarterback as the state’s best. It’s just that JaQuorrey Williams, a three-year starter for the Sundevils, is also one of the state’s best-kept secrets. With Eldorado struggling for victories the past two years, Williams’ solid performances have gone virtually unnoticed. Come Friday, that will likely change — at least for a few hours.
