How Liberty took down BG (article)


Recommended Posts

Muraco took over at Liberty, a program that had never previously managed a winning season in five years since the school opened, in 2009. It was the same year Tony Sanchez arrived at Bishop Gorman.

Both men immediately transformed the landscape of Nevada high school football with their respective teams — a process that continued when Kenny Sanchez succeeded his brother at Gorman in 2015. But it wasn’t until 2011, in the state semifinals, when the two programs that were then separated in different regions squared off.

Gorman struggled more than the 56-34 final score in that game may indicate as Liberty twice captured first-half leads in a game that went down as one of high school football’s most memorable of the past decade. It certainly was among the most attended, as the Polynesian community Muraco helped implant as the DNA of Liberty football showed up in droves to the neutral-site Rancho High.
