You can easily label the Henderson Bowl, the annual high school football game between Basic and Green Valley, as the best rivalry in Southern Nevada. This the 26th installment of the game. It was started in the early 1990s when Green Valley opened as Henderson’s second school in creating a natural rivalry with Basic, Henderson’s first. Both schools have tremendous community support, so much that 5,000 fans are expected tonight at Basic. And at Basic, you have that hometown feel that’s generally absent in Las Vegas — everyone knows each other and waits all season for this game.

Vince Carducci


In 2010, Vince led the Basic Wolves to a third straight victory over Green Valley, something that had never been accomplished in the history of the rivalry. In that game, Vince accounted for 199 yards of offense and scored two touchdowns. In the final moments of the game, with Basic trying to run out the clock, he took the ball and headed for the first down. As he reached out for the first down he injured his knee but in the process secured a victory for the Wolves. He truly gave everything he had for the victory in this rivalry and that is why we nominated him for the Henderson Bowl Hall of Fame.
Christian Lopez

Green Valley

Christian Played 3 years in the Henderson Bowl as our quarterback. During that time Green Valley won each of those games. Christian played a vital role in those wins with his ability to run and pass the ball. One of his best attributes as a player is his ability to extend plays and get the ball down field to open receivers. In the last two years playing in the Henderson Bowl Christian completed 73% of his passes for almost 500 yards, 6 passing touchdowns and 1 rushing. Christian is currently playing football in Arizona, so accepting this award is Emir Lopez.


Basic had only 60 yards of offense in the first half, but it didn’t matter as the defense kept Green Valley from getting anything going. Defensive end Jacob Fulton led the charge, intercepting a pass from Kalyja Waialae and returning it 19 yards for a touchdown with 7:29 to go in the first quarter. Things got tougher for Green Valley when Waialae went down with an injury after taking a big hit at the end of a 6-yard run in the second quarter. That forced running back Braxton Harms into action at quarterback, and he was intercepted three times. Waialae was later helped onto a golf cart, and didn’t return. The bomb to Eagles ignited the offense. McAllister added a 30-yard scoring pass to Dorian McAllister with 6:09 to go in the third quarter, then hit Harris in stride for a 45-yard TD pass to put the Wolves up 35-0 with 10:27 to go. Eagles finished with three catches for 117 yards and also intercepted a pass. The Gators finally got on the board when Eric Faber scored on an 8-yard run with 1:30 to play, but it was far too late to prevent Basic from taking a second consecutive Henderson Bowl with a final score of 35-7, Basic Academy for the win.
