The Haywood family left an imprint in Desert Vista’s big win over Mesquite last week.

Junior Richard Haywood had a 41-yard touchdown run while his senior cousin, Keeyhan, tipped a pass that ended up going for a pick six for teammate Jason King.

The run by Haywood was important as he could become one of the threats on the fly.

"Richard and Kaleb (Germinaro) really ran well, we we working on using the fly as a weapon again, and they both looked good at it,” Thunder coach Dan Hinds said.

Brown still deciding

Mountain Pointe junior wide receiver/safety Jalen Brown has been invited to the Under Army and Army combines this offseason.

He has already been to the Army combine, which is held in Orlando, so he could be leaning toward Under Armor, which is in San Antonio.

Other national events Brown has on his tentative schedule at the Semper Fi combine in Glendale and the Nike Sparq training camp.

On the road

Desert Vista senior safety Nick Farina went on an official visit to South Dakota State last weekend and reports said he really liked the way the team played defense. It is his only current offer.

Those other guys

Pride offensive linemen Kenny Lacy and Natrell Curtis have received most of the attention this year, but center Collin Lambdin, guard Kendall Hunter and tackle Kyle Spight have been solid as well. Terry Ross has been getting a lot of minutes with Curtis concentrating on defense.

“Collin has become a fixture at center, Kendall has been good and Terry Ross has been playing more,” Pride coach Norris Vaughan said. “They’ve come along pretty good.”
