Members of the Coronado High School football team are pictured during the Las Vegas Sun’s high school football media day at the Red Rock Resort on August 3rd, 2021. They include, from left, Ike Nnakenyi, Chris Avila and Elijah Edquilang.

The Coronado High football team was supposed to scrimmage two other schools in mid-August, but the event was canceled for health protocols after one of the teams had a player test positive for the coronavirus.

Last week, the Cougars’ would-be season opener with Basic was canceled hours before kickoff for the same reason.

The fact that Coronado played a game on Friday night was reason to celebrate, coach Fred Biletnikoff Jr. said. The fact the Cougars rolled over Cimarron-Memorial, 51-14, was an added bonus.

“It was nice to see our kids finally in uniform,” Biletnikoff said.

Chris Avila had three touchdowns to lead Coronado, and tight end Mike Floyde had a scoring reception.

Considering it was the team’s first game, Biletnikoff was “really impressed with how our offensive line made adjustments into the game.”
