Las Vegas Review-Journal - - FROM THE COVER - By Da­mon Seit­ers Las Ve­gas Re­view-jour­nal

Faith Lutheran quar­ter­back Sa­gan Gronauer threw 24 touch­down passes in his senior sea­son last fall.

He was even more dan­ger­ous on Sun­day throw­ing to a pair of speedy Desert Pines re­ceivers.

Gronauer com­pleted 9 of 13 passes for 192 yards, in­clud­ing one touch­down each to Desert Pines’

Tye Moore and Devin Mcgee, as the North squad earned a 30-26 win in the 47th West Charleston Li­ons Club Char­ity All-star game at Bishop Gorman.

“We were just work­ing on it for the whole week just try­ing to find rhythm, and we found it to­day ob­vi­ously,” Gronauer said. “Tye made great plays, Devin made great plays. Ev­ery­body on this team made great plays, so it was awe­some.”

Gronauer staked the North to a 16-0 first-quar­ter lead af­ter con­nect­ing with Mcgee on a 30-yard scor­ing pass and hit­ting a wide-open Moore for a 52-yard touch­down.

He added a 40-yard scor­ing strike to Moore with 4:39 to play on fourt­hand-2 to push the lead to 30-14.

Moore, who was the game’s of­fen­sive MVP, fin­ished with three catches for 98 yards, and Mcgee had five catches for 74 yards. Canyon Springs’ line­backer Keyvon Lakes re­turned an in­ter­cep­tion 52 yards for a score for the North, and Faith Lutheran de­fen­sive line­man Ken­dall Light­foot added two sacks.

Du­rango’s Kaden Ren­shaw did his best to get the South back into the game, rush­ing for a pair of touch­downs and throw­ing two touch­down passes — 11 yards to Du­rango team­mate Jay­den Nersinger and 20 yards to Foothill’s Jor­dan Blakely.

Amorey Foster of Legacy, who had three 2-point con­ver­sion runs for the North and also played on de­fense and spe­cial teams, was the game MVP. The South’s Zion Jack­son of Sierra Vista was named the de­fen­sive MVP.
