Members of the Durango 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, Braden Iverson, Jaxon Young and Tyler Robbins.

Jaxon Young returned the opening kickoff 75 yards for a touchdown Friday night for the Durango High football team in a 28-0 win against neighborhood rival Spring Valley.

“When you get a big play like that right away it takes a lot of pressure off the team,” Durango coach Toby Henry said.

Young also scored on a 10-yard touchdown pass from Maverik Cormier, and Daurell Ilaoa had a 5-yard touchdown run.

Defensively, end Andre Washington had a 50-yard interception return for a score.

“I like the way our defense is playing right now,” Henry said. “They are playing lights out.”
