The great ones have a way of transforming on the football field, zoning out everything else to the point where raw ability takes over in an indescribable manner. Canyon Springs running back Donnel Pumphrey should know that sensation after his team’s season-opening 47-6 victory over Foothill Friday night. Asked to describe his touchdown runs of 91, 73 and 70 yards, Pumphrey couldn’t find the words.

The Foothill High football team had one of the best passing attacks in Southern Nevada last year, using a breakthrough season from quarterback Drew Doxtator in advancing to the Sunrise Regional championship game.

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 ...
