LASVEGASSUN.COM RELEASES 2012 ALL-SUN ALL-STAR FOOTBALL TEAM

Talented roster includes nine players from Bishop Gorman High School, three BYU commits

LAS VEGAS ¬ LasVegasSun.com unveiled its 2012 All-Sun All-Star Football Team on Monday, Aug. 20. Hand-selected by Sports Editor Ray Brewer, the elite list is comprised of 29 players from 15 area high schools, including nine players from Bishop Gorman High School’s nationally-recognized athletic program and several of the nation’s top college prospects.

“The All-Sun All-Star list encompasses some of Southern Nevada’s best high school football players,” said Brewer. “Our goal was to highlight the top athletes in every position across the Valley and give readers a close look at this season’s must-see talent.”

Notable players on the All-Sun All-Star list include running back Niko Kapeli, Liberty High School’s all-time leading rusher and the lone verbal commit to University of Nevada, Las Vegas; Bishop Gorman High School quarterback Anu Solomon, the state’s all-time leading passer and verbal commit to University of Arizona; Bishop Gorman High School running back Nate Starks, a junior with offers from powerhouse programs such as Oklahoma University and The University of Texas at Austin; and three Brigham Young University commits, Liberty High School quarterback Kai Nacua, Bishop Gorman High School defensive lineman Isaiah Nacua and Centennial High School defensive lineman Trajan Pili. The complete team is available online at lasvegassun.com.

As a result of a sponsorship from the Nevada Department of Public Safety, this year’s selections will each have interactive profiles on the Las Vegas Sun website with game-to-game statistics, photographs and video features where fans can track progress throughout the season. In addition, each athlete received a special edition All-Sun team jersey.

Later this month, a poster with a photo of the 2012 team will be distributed around the city.
