Here's a look at what happened during Week 6 of the high school football season.
Basic's football team had its share of offensive heroes Friday night, but that's not what coach Jeff Cahill wanted to talk about after the game.

Arbor View played Friday night without Curtis Jones, its leading rusher and one of Southern Nevada's top running backs, but thanks to Morris Jackson, the Aggies' potent double-wing ground attack didn't miss a beat.
For Foothill's football team, Friday's home game with Canyon Springs was not only about seeking to win its fourth straight game, but also to try and keep its momentum rolling heading into Southeast League play next week.
Two years ago, Bishop Gorman opened its season with a 4-1 mark against non-conference foes, including the then-No. 1 ranked team in the nation in Miami's Booker T. Washington.
Just more than six minutes into Friday night's game, Cheyenne had only 17 yards of offense against visiting Pahrump Valley.

Centennial's Jamaal Evans threw five touchdown passes Friday as the fifth-ranked Bulldogs routed visiting Bonanza, 49-6.
Clark quarterback Nick Kinnard didn't complete a single pass on Friday night, but he made the biggest play of the game in the second quarter.
