Keefer's Picks
Last Week:
11-4

Last Season
160-32 (.833)

While GV lost last week, having one game under its belt gives the Gators a Henderson Bowl edge.
Green Valley 38, Basic 29

Seems like yesterday when Basic had a three-game win streak in the Henderson Bowl. Now Green Valley will.
Green Valley 31, Basic 21

I hate picking against my alma mater, but Eldorado is the better team.
Eldorado 22, Chaparral 15

Brewer picked against “his” Cowboys in the Cleat Game? What has the world come to?
Chaparral 30, Eldorado 18

Liberty’s tough out of the area schedule has them prepared for a backyard brawl with Silverado.
Liberty 33, Silverado 19

I wouldn’t feel comfortable picking the Skyhawks without seeing them play.
Liberty 27, Silverado 20

Respected California school Santa Margarita had more than 500 yards of offense last week. They’ll give Gorman’s defense a big-time test.
Santa Margarita 38, Bishop Gorman 34

The Gaels are going to get better every week during this national stretch, and that’s scary.
Bishop Gorman 24, Santa Margarita 20

Shadow Ridge grabs its first win of 2013.
Shadow Ridge 43, Rancho 0

Rams have no chance against the Mustangs.
Shadow Ridge 56, Rancho 6

This game will be closer than you think. Seriously.
Moapa Valley 30, Clark 23

No, it won’t.
Moapa Valley 42, Clark 20

The Desert Pines speed is too much for an improved Pahrump squad.
Desert Pines 28, Pahrump Valley 13

Pahrump Valley will win some games this year, but this won’t be one of them.
Desert Pines 27, Pahrump Valley 21

Don’t call it an upset — the better team wins this one.
Virgin Valley 20, Cheyenne 12

An early season trip to Mesquite isn’t conducive to success for a team still figuring it out like Cheyenne.
Virgin Valley 36, Cheyenne 26

Boulder City gets back on track after rough loss in opener.
Boulder City 37, Western 6

Xavier Steel might score every time he touches the ball.
Boulder City 36, Western 0

Canyon Springs makes an opening game statement. They’ll be a contender in the Sunrise.
Canyon Springs 34, Coronado 14

Not ready to back off of my belief that Cougars will be tough to beat after one loss.
Coronado 30, Canyon Springs 21

Schedule makers got this game right. Two evenly matched teams.
Del Sol 13, Valley 6

I wouldn’t want to get hit by Noble Hall.
Valley 33, Del Sol 27

Some feel Mojave is the team to beat in the Division I-A.
Mojave 30, Spring Valley 20

Let’s not go too far. This will be a close game.
Mojave 27, Spring Valley 26

I wouldn’t be shocked if these teams met in the first round of the playoffs.
Foothill 20, Las Vegas 19

Seems like it’s always a competitive game when these two teams get together.
Foothill 21, Las Vegas 15

Vernon Fox gets his first coaching victory as Faith Lutheran cleans up its mistakes.
Faith Lutheran 23, Sunrise Mountain 16

Crusaders cherish taste of first victory, even if it took longer than they would have liked.
Faith Lutheran 23, Sunrise Mountain 16

Hurricane’s Wing-T offense is like trying to stop Arbor View and Palo Verde.
Hurricane 23, Legacy 18

Longhorns make Nevada proud after two weeks worth of disappointment against out-of-state teams.
Legacy 22, Hurricane 20
