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.

high school football: Chris Marshall, Raheem Jones improve Dragons to 3-0
Del Sol players yelled encouragingly at each other as they rushed out of the locker room after halftime at Silverado on Friday night. This in no way looked like a team that had been physically dominated and seemingly overmatched through two quarters. The Dragons didn’t play like it the rest of the way, either. Del Sol turned a sloppy first half into a golden second half to slide by Southeast division rival Silverado 28-24 Friday night.
