1Bishop GormanLas VegasNV15-02vs State Champions@ #6 Del Sol
After the first few games, it became obvious that the Bishop Gorman Gaels were the team to beat. Everyone knew that the team would have one of the best defensive lines in the state but the emergence of a stellar underclass was the biggest difference and an unseen change. Very rarely do you see a team with sophomores and freshmen playing significant roles at quarterback, running back, wide receiver and the offensive line show such great fire power and the team continued to get better as the season progressed capping it's run in the state chmpionship as no team came close. This was a well earned opportunity and victory as the Gaels are the 2009-10 Nevada State Champions.
2LegacyLas VegasNV11-13vs End of Season 2nd Roundvs #7 Cimarron
The Longhorns knocked off the Spartans on the final play the last time and that is how they fell in the playoffs. An amazing run and undefeated season wasn't completed with a championship but the Longhorns are now established as a power and can thank a great senior class for that.
3Palo VerdeLas VegasNV10-24vs End of Season 2nd Round@ #1 Bishop Gorman
The Panthers had tremendous talent at the skill positions but the speed of the Gaels on the edge destroyed the consistency of the team's powerful offense bringing the season to a close. The Panthers set new heights with two 1000 yard rushers and senior Tyrone Blake topped the 900 yard rushing mark again. The Panthers enter the off-seaosn with a good nucleus to build around but will once again lose a special class as well as the loss of a great coach.
4Las VegasLas VegasNV8-25vs End of Season 1st Roundvs Foothill
Keyed by two sophomores, the Wildcats didn't have the experience and horses to overcome a smart game plan by the Falcons. Falling in the final minute with a furious attempt to rally from a late pick, the Wildcats are a program on the right track and is the pieces stay in place, the are a team that will be very dangerous next season.
5BasicHendersonNV11-26vs End of Season Sunrise Title Game@ #6 Del Sol
Basic proved that fighting tooth and nail can get a team places this season as they were the comeback kings. They were also a team that played as a team on every play and allowed quarterback Tyler Dobbins to work his magic at the end of games. They are possibly the most inspirational team of the season in the way they never wavered to the end and capped another great run for a team that has really resurged towards the end of the decade.
6Del SolLas VegasNV12-23vs End Of Season State Championshipvs #1 Bishop Gorman
Four trips to the Sunrise Championship and finally grabbing a victory, the Dragons made the team of the past proud by getting to the state championship and never conseding until the final whistle. Troy Miller, Evan Weinstock, Ashton Cacho and Troy Miller are four names that madefor a memorable season as the rest of the team played hard, old school football. Although they took a hard loss in the final game, this team proved to be special and allowed the football program to finally get over a major hump.
7CimarronLas VegasNV10-39vs End of Season Regional Championship@ #1 Bishop Gorman
The Spartans fell to the Gaels after not being able to convert three redzone opportunities and thier stars on offense taking a beating but the defense showed guts in the second half limiting the Gaels to just 3 points. It was an amazing season and the team looks to see a great senior class move on as a new era ushers in.
8CarsonCarson CityNV9-3NRvs End of Season 2nd Roundvs Galena
The Senators amazing run has come to an end as they were tripped up by a Galena team they dominated in the regular season but a team that had plenty of playoff experience. They can still hang their heads high as they produced an amazing turn around and are hoping to see the programs fortunes change for good.
9ReedSparksNV11-3NRvs End of Season State Playoffsvs #1 Bishop Gorman
The Reed Raiders had a great season but didn't have the man power to matchup with the Gaels and fell in blow out fashion but still capped a great season with a berth in the state playoffs. With the outstanding play of quarterback Tyler Pine, the team and the program have a regional title to hang a hat on in it's second visit to state in the decade.
10DurangoLas VegasNV8-3NRvs End of Season 1st Round vs #7 Cimarron
A second shot at Cimarron saw the Trailblazer give up 100-yards to three different players despite a great effort on offense. The team can hang a hat on the season as they are in the same boat as Carson on getting a turn around season and many of the team's key player will be gearing up to return next season.
