  • This week's Peak Performer: Elway Tubbs, Vista Ridge football

    Elway was nearly perfect, throwing for four touchdowns in a blowout victory. Elway Tubbs that is. The Vista Ridge quarterback is doing his best to live up to his namesake, and after one game in 2014, he's doing just fine. "My parents are huge Broncos fans," said Tubbs, a junior. "It's definitely a lot to live up to, but I love having the...

  • Widefield gets best of Mitchell behind opportunistic defense, running game

    Widefield didn't play a Week Zero game, but it didn't take long to knock off any rust or jitters Saturday against a Mitchell team that already had a win under its belt. In their first taste of action in 2014, the 4A Gladiators controlled most of the 48 minutes of play in a 36-6 win at Garry Berry Stadium over the 3A Marauders. While...

  • Mustangs' rally can't overcome mistakes

    What to make of Manitou Springs? A sloppy, turnover-prone team, one that falters in the spots it flourished during last season's run to the state title game? Or a team that dominates the line of scrimmage, so much so that it can put teams away with an unwavering and predictable run attack? On Friday, in front of a spirited crowd at...

    Fountain - Fountain-Fort Carson wasn't sure what to expect from a Lakewood team that notched just three wins last season.

The Trojans had one running back finish with more than...
