Las Vegas High School Football Rankings

 

Even if things were shuffled around here and there, the power rankings for this week won’t seem too unfamiliar if you’ve been following along. Don’t let that fool you into thinking nothing interesting happened, though. We’ll tackle that and more in this week’s report.

Can’t Touch This

Virgin Valley’s 33 – 18 win over Democracy Prep Agassi Campus last week had a lot to do with the leadership of junior Wyatt Delano. Delano earned three touchdowns and 337 yards rushing the ball. That performance landed Delano among the top power-ranked players for the week.

This Week’s Big Showdown

One of the hottest tickets last week involved the clash between Faith Lutheran (ranked 7th in NV) and JSerra Catholic (ranked 7th in CA). Faith Lutheran had a rough outing against JSerra Catholic, losing 50 – 10. The quarterback felt the defeat most of all — literally. After eight sacks, he is probably hoping to get a little more protection in the future.

Movin on Up

Del Sol not only got the result it was looking for last game, but the team outscored its opponent Rancho in every quarter. The final score between Del Sol and Rancho was a 48 – 0 blowout in Del Sol’s favor. The Rancho defense has struggled this season (giving up an average of 42 points per game), and Del Sol took advantage of that. The team’s efforts were enough to boost its power ranking by three, which was the most sizeable gain made by any team in the rankings.

No Stoppin ‘Em

63. That was the combined point total for Las Vegas and Durango when they went head to head last week, and it set the benchmark for all power ranking teams. Durango took its game against Las Vegas by a confident 42 – 21 score. Durango’s offense might have been extra motivated to turn things around after difficulties scoring in its previous game.
